During the turbulent time of the Clone Wars, the Republic Commando Armour was worn only by a select group chosen from the clone armies; groups of soldiers genetically enhanced and trained to be the best at battlefield operations. The armour was part of a set which included the Republic Commando Helmet, Belt, and Backpack, to make what seemed like an impenetrable suit of armour that was even able to sustain life in the vacuum of space.Soon after the destructive Clone Wars came to an end, the Republic Commando Armour fell out of use for better and cheaper technologies. Many of these magnificent pieces were either disposed of, recycled or lost when the Empire switched to the new and improved stormtrooper armour.Though the age when the Republic Commando Armour shined is long gone, they are still treated with respect and viewed as treasures. With pieces rarely seen, this armour is sought after and highly prized by collectors and antique hunters. Individuals with complete sets usually place values on them higher than many ships currently available in the markets today.
