Overview

A clone engineer of the 501st Legion in Phase II armor.

On Kamino some clones were randomly chosen to become engineers and became attuned to their vehicles and idiosyncrasies.[1] On the battlefield they were assigned to heavy artillery units, such as Heavy Assault Vehicle/wheeled A6 Juggernauts and SPHA units for armored ground assault.

Clone engineers were equipped with dispensers that held bacta and ammunition and F-187 fusioncutters that enabled them to repair vehicles, turrets, medical and power droids. They were armed with detonation packs for sabotage and shotguns in case they had to engage enemy units.

History

Various Galactic Republic military units were known to include Combat Engineer Battalions, such as the 38th Armored Division or the famed 501st Legion. Engineers played crucial role in the Battle of Thule, where they were deployed into energy farms to take down their enemy's shields, leaving them vulnerable to attack. Clone engineers were also charged with constructing outposts in the name of the Republic.
