Bio/HistoryEditClone Engineers (or Clone Specialists) are Clone Troopers who serve as medics, mechanics, or weapon specialists who either repair vehicles, weapons, or heal wounded soldiers and/or Jedi.
They mainly repair vehicles on Republic Star Cruisers, or tend to medical patients while on board. There are, (and were) also engineers who often fought on the battlefield and were assigned to missions, (such as Jesse and Kix) and were under the rank of Corporal. Small squads were also formed towards the end of the Clone Wars Era.
Imperial Shocktroopers from the Imperial Security replaced the original Clone Engineers from the Grand Army of the Republic.
Clone Engineers ("Flight Crew" engineers) wear thin tunics with vests and long pockets for holding tools, and special com-link helmets for communicating with officers above command bridges in ship hangers. (To whom they mainly work in ship hangers.)
They're unit numbers or "Clone Codes" are "CP", for "Clone Personnel".
