We could watch the Scuba
clone troopers at Cartoon Network's Clone Wars
cartoon series. Clone SCUBA troopers were aquatic assault clone troopers grown on Kamino for the Grand Army of the Republic.
They are a service class in the Grand Army of the
Republic, but they were trained specially for underwater
actions. The raging oceans of Kamino were a perfect location for their
simulations, and combat drills, so these clones could practice every kind of
battle events under the water surface.
As the Confederacy of Independent Systems equipped itself with Manta droid subfighters and other aquatic machines
in huge quantities, the Republic suspected the CIS wanna attack an oceanic
planet. When the Separatists allied themselves with aquatic races such as the Quarren and the Ishi Tib
it became clear, the CIS wanted to attack Mon Calamari. Before the war
would be taken to the oceans of Mon Calamari
the Republic needed aquatic soldiers and weapons to be
able to face these new foes, and to protect the
Clone SCUBA troopers wore SCUBA diving gear
under their common armor plates, which was pressure-tight, and water repellent.
Every single SCUBA clone trooper were fitted with underwater propulsion
backpacks and an aquatic versions of the DC-15 blaster rifle,
which was operational under water as well.
SCUBA assault troopers first saw action under the surface of the oceans of Mon Calamari. Jedi
General Kit Fisto led a clone SCUBA squadron into battle against the members of the Quarren Isolation League and their Separatist allies.
The SCUBA troopers first suffered large losses to the Quarren artillery defenses, but gained the upper-hand when they ambushed sub-carriers and hampered the launch of mini-sub fighters
with the help and lead of Master Kit Fisto. The clone SCUBA troopers were the predecessors of the aquatic assault stormtroopers.
a look at my custom SCUBA clone
trooper. It was inspired by the Star Wars: Clone Wars
cartoon series. They used a giant rifle
in the cartoon, so I gave him a large rifle. There are two air-tubes coming
out from their helmet, it goes into the backpack, they can inhale through
those under water. There are sleeves on their forearms and calves, but their
importance is unknown. They have flippers on their feet, they can swim better
with those under water, like the divers.
Scuba clone trooper without rifle, and
will release an official figure of the Scuba clone.
But I have been having my own custom Scuba clone trooper for years. :-)
I know, that is not a perfect custom figure, but anyway, as you can see I have
a Scuba clone well before the official release date. The original item will
look like this, in this picture on the right, but please keep in mind, this is not available at the moment, that is only a
reference photo of the future Hasbro item:
for visiting the site CustomStarWars. Come back ASAP,
as there will be plenty of interesting things here, pretty
