Clone troopers were an army of identical, genetically-modified clones of Jango Fett, created to serve in the Grand Army of the Republic during the conflict that came to be known as the Clone Wars. Cloned and raised in the cities of Kamino, the clone  troopers trained and drilled since birth, and came to be regarded as one of the most efficient military forces ever to have existed in galactic  history. This was not only due to their training, but also to their unwavering loyalty to the Galactic Republic and its leader, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. }}
