Standing apart from the common soldier, the Trooper represents the pinnacle of Republic martial training. While the flashiness of the Jedi often reward them the headlines it is the Trooper that secures more battlefields, defends more planets and stands vigilantly against all threats to the Republic. More Republic citizens owe their lives and liberties to the sacrifices of the trooper than any other single force in the galaxy.
Far from simple warriors, Troopers are a rare breed apart. Chosen not only for superior physical prowess but for keen minds and quick thinking every Trooper represents some of the best traits that can be found among all of the peoples of the Republic. Trained to work seamlessly within a squad or battalion each Trooper is also taught to be fully capable when serving alone or within mixed groups of mixed operatives; troopers often find themselves on specialized ops that include members of the Jedi and even the occasional outlaw pilot. It is said no metal can bend without breaking the way that a Republic Trooper can.

If the Republic needs a target eliminated there simply is no better choice than a Commando.
