Description: 41st Elite Corps
Prefix: CT
Detachment: Clone Trooper Detachment
Context: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

The 41st Elite Corps includes several types of troopers and is formed by the combined forces of Sarlacc Battalion A, Battalion B, and Green Company. The 41st specializes in operations performed on alien planets or under extreme conditions. Shown here is their grey and white armor scheme.


The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

In the page below, items listed in blue are recommended features that will improve the quality of the costume. Items listed in red are intended to further enhance the finished costume.

For 501st membership only the requirements in black need to be met.

IMPORTANT: The "Animated" armor design, seen in The Clone Wars CG Series, differs from the "Realistic" armor design used to create characters from the theatrical films and graphic novels.
See this thread at clonetroopers.net for the differences between the sculpts.

This Visual Guide has been reviewed by the detachment staff and the LMO team and is certified for use as a minimum approval guideline for GMLs. GMLs are free to approve this costume type.
