I'm getting a little impacient waiting for more info to be released on the classes of the other three factions, so I figure I'd see what you guys are predicting.

Obviously every faction is gonna have the typical soldier, anti-vehicle guy, scout/sniper, and pilot, and screenshots have already shown all of these for the Imps. We also know about the Imperial officer, but what do you think the other unique Imp unit will be?

As for the clones...do we only know about the standard troop and the jetpack trooper (which I'm sure will be a unique) so far? Also, we've seen the standard droids for the Separatists and the droidekas, but has there but anything else? Speaking of those destroyer droids...are they gonna just not able to pilot anything?

Elite clone troopers could be a special unit for the clone army. I guess that super battle droids could be a special unit for the Separatists along with the droideka.

No, i think that the super battle droid will be the heavy weapons for the seperatist's and the droideka and the jetpack droid will be their special unit's. But that's just my thought's.:jawa :jawa

GlobalStrike, I don't think that super battle droids will be the heavy weapon because in one of the screenshots at IGN we can see a simple droid with the same kind of weapon like the rebel vanguard.

For the droid with a jetpack, we never saw them in Episode II but I guess that it could be possible. If so, the design, in my opinion, would be different.

The ARC Trooper (as seen in the Clone Wars cartoon) is most likely the second special unit for the Republic. I remember seeing screens of one standing in front of the camera. Although its possible that its either already the heavy weapons trooper or the jetpack trooper, but I doubt its the jetpack troop since we've seen vids of one and he didn't have that dress looking thing that Vader has:p .

i agree, the arc trooper and jetpack trooper should be the 2 for the clones.
the imperials have the officer and prob. someone else, maybe a bounty hunter?:p (looking at episode 5, the empire did hire them...)
the droids have the droideka, and maybe the super battle droid or maybe even the spider droid,( the dwarf version).
and we already know the rebels, so.... confirmation on at least 3 is needed.

I want to see the dark trooper, i think thats what there called. They are awsome with the big guns and all that would be awsome. But probably too unbalenced. And darn to the no flame wars( they can be fun to watch):D I just so used to them at the halo 2 forum at gamefaqs they're is about 2 to 3 wars per thread it can be fun!

I was looking as some screens and figured out who the Republic units could possibly be:

Soldier: A regular white armored trooper
In-game screen (http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/action/starwarsbattlefront/screens.html?page=43)

Heavy Infantry, Scout, Pilot: All look like regular white armored clones but with different colored arms (blue, green, red, gold).
Guy in Background (http://media.pc.ign.com/media/617/617664/img_1948308.html)

Jetpack trooper: By observing the vids, it looks like the jet pack trooper is a regular clone but with dark blue arms.
Most likely him... (http://media.pc.ign.com/media/617/617664/img_1948306.html)

ARC Trooper: Now that I looked at the images, there is definitely an ARC Trooper unit who couldn't possibly be any one else. Looks like a trooper with light blue arms and the cloth over the back of there legs.
Guy in the middle. (http://media.pc.ign.com/media/617/617664/img_1966317.html)
The dead one. (http://media.pc.ign.com/media/617/617664/img_1966318.html)

Tell me if some of the links don't work.

Didn't you hear? Episode III didn't come out yet. What you might have seen is just from someone that isn't related to the production. Unless you know something that I don't.

I saw the flying geonosian warrior on one of the Geonosis sreenshots. I don't think the droidika is the assault trooper. They probably are assault troopers (because they are good at destroying troops).

The Imperials will have the imperial officier of course, but I don't think they will have some kind of supertrooper (snwotrooper, darktrooper) because they already got the assault trooper for that kind of tasks.

The Republic will have jetpack troopers (but we all know that already).

I was referring to what I want to see for each faction. I don't have any official information from anyone. Some of the people working on the project did mention if you saw something in the movies then it would likely appear in the game. All those are in the films except the AT-ST precedessor which is rumored to appear in episode III.

Star Wars Battlegrounds calls the AT ST predecessor Clone Personal Walker, but they also call the SPHA-T Clone Artilery, so you can't really trust it.

I remeber reading sumwhere that the Imperial special units were the officer and the jetpack trooper, but maybe i'm wrong.

Clones: ARC Trooper(Heavy Assault)
Jetpack Trooper(Special Unit)
Standard Clone(Soldier)
Gunship Pilot(Pilot)

-This seems to be all I can think of for the clones unless they give you both colors of ARC Troopers or the Yellow Clone Commander or Red Seargant,dont know what part they would be though.Dont know what the sniper class would be.


Droids: Battle Droid(Soldier)
Super Battle Droid(Heavy Assault)
Droideka(Special Unit)
Flying Geonosion Warrior(Special Unit)
Geonosion Pilot(Pilot)

-Thats probly all the different things you could possibly be unless they give you variations of Battle Droids.Dont know what the sniper class would be.

looks like an imperial heavy trooper and near the center next to the fleeing rebel thier is a wookiee smuggler. pic (http://media.xbox.gamespy.com/media/617/617665/img_2053571.html)


destroyer droid (http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/action/starwarsbattlefront/screens.html?page=22)

sweet pics darkjedi8. never seen those before. the arc troopers in the cartoon didn't have skirt things though. they had red and blue and yellow lines on their armor. And how were they special because all the clones were exactly the same.

The ARC troopers DID have skirt things in the cartoon....the only ARC troopers are colored blue and red,the yellow one u refer to is the pilot.The ARC troopers were special because they were personally trained by Jango Fett,so their skill is top notch.
