DUNE SEA GARRISON ACTIVITIES
Description: atoc clone pilot
Detachment: Clonetrooper detachment
Context: Attack of the clones
They first appeared at the Battle of Geonosis,where they flew LAAT/i and LAAT/c gunships. Pilots also operated CR20 and CR25 troop carriers. In addition, they flew starfighters such as the V-19 Torrent, ARC-170, and Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing. The pilots who flew capital ships wore a special type of armor instead of the regular one, seen in the First Battle of Mon Calamari, during the Clone Wars. Pilots also knew how to operate all military land vehicles such as the AT-TEs.
Clone trooper pilots were born and raised in secret on the Wild Space planet Kamino, starting from 32 BBY. They were clones of the Human male Jango Fett and were purchased for use by the Galactic Republic. Troopers which demonstrated certain aptitudes were selected for pilot training. They first participated in battle ten years after their creation at the Battle of Geonosis by piloting the Republic gunships. During the course of the resulting conflict against the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the Clone Wars, they also flew the ARC-170 starfighters and V-wing fighters that engaged Separatist forces in the depths of space or the skies of scattered worlds. Clone pilots would also occasionally participate in boarding parties, in orbital battles along with Clone marines. In those engagements, clone pilots carried a blaster pistol, F-187 fusioncutters, and time bombs to wreak havoc aboard enemy capital ships. During ground engagements, they carried "DN bolt caster" plasma disruptors and DC-15S blasters, along with health and ammo dispensers with their fusioncutters to support their fellow clones.
The Grand Army of the Republic pilots participated in many battles throughout the war, piloting gunships to transport troopers and flying V-19 Torrent starfighters to engage Separatist starfighters, especially in the early part of the war.Wearing Phase 1 armor with yellow markings, they also piloted AT-TE walkers and other ground craft. Pilots participated in various campaigns, including the battles of Christophsis, Teth, destroying the Malevolence at the Kaliida Nebula, Bothawui, Quell, Ryloth, Devaron, the Second Battle of Geonosis, and many others. They flew V-19s, Y-wing bombers, and ARC-170s for most of the early part of the war.
In late 21 BBY, clone pilot armor was changed with the addition of Phase 2 clone armor. New clone Z-95 Headhunter starfighters were added to the Republic arsenal, and clone pilots flew them at battles including Umbara, Kadavo, Scipio, and many others. In mid 20 BBY, the armor was changed yet again, and the ARC-170 became the Republic's main starfighter, alongside new V-wings.
During the Battle of Coruscant, Squad Seven, led by Clone Commander Davijaan, was instrumental in holding off enemy forces and allowing Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker infiltrate Separatist General Grievous' fleeing flagship, the Invisible Hand, which subsequently led to the rescue of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine.

A very honorable day for the DSG. 3 of our members took valuable time out of their weekend to go visit a child cancer patient today and give him some smiles. I'm so proud to be a part of this Garrison and the 501st Legion. (PRO, Keith G.)
