Clone shock troopers were specialist clone troopers introduced during Clone Wars to increase security and order on Coruscant  in the form of the Coruscant Guard.  Though a military force, they served mostly in a police capacity or as body guards for diplomats and other dignitaries including the Supreme Chancellor.  Throughout the Clone Wars, they were distinguished by red markings all over their helmet and body armor. This was carried into the Imperial era where Coruscant Guard became well known by its all crimson body armor.}}
