The Clone Troopers were identical, genetically modified soldiers of the Jedi and the Galactic Republic during the period of Clone Wars in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. They were created by Sifo-Dyas to combat the the Separatists in the last years of the Republic. Near the end of the Clone Wars, the clones followed Order 66 by killing Jedi Knights and later became Stormtroopers.
Clone Trooper Commander
Clone trooper commanders were an advanced breed of clone troopers that specialized in commanding clone regiments and battalions in the Grand Army of the Republic. These commanders usually served as the second in command to the Jedi Generals aiding them in battle.
Clone Battalion Commander
Clone commanders received a higher degree of training than that of the other clones. Their training allowed for them to be quicker in thinking and coordination, and as a side result, gave them more individuality than the other clones.
Clone Regimental Commander
Clone regimental commanders were commanders placed in charge of regiments, in addition to Jedi Commanders.
Senior Clone Commander
A Senior clone commander, such as Gree, was a high-ranking clone trooper commander, only 320 of which existed, who was usually placed in charge of a legion alongside a Jedi General.
Clone Marshal Commander
Being at the highest possible rank of a clone trooper, Clone marshal commanders, such as Cody who was in charge of the Third Systems Army, received even further advanced training than their standard counterparts and often led large battalions or Corps with High Jedi Generals.
Normally, clone trooper commanders wore standard clone trooper armor with yellow markings on their gloves and boots. However, this was seldom seen for most of the war, as color more frequently signified unit affiliation, not rank. Most clone commanders had a certain distinction from the regular clones, and that their armor was customized to show their status as a high ranking clone. At first, the commanders were distinguished by colored markings on their armor. Add-ons such as kamas and pauldrons became more prominent along with personalized markings and equipment such as DC-17 pistols, grenades, and ammo belts.

Known Clone Captains
Clone Trooper Lieutenant
Clone Trooper Lieutenants were clones who were promoted from Sergeant. Lieutenant was a common rank, especially among ARC Troopers, and the second rank of Clone officers, the first being Second-Lieutenant.
Clone trooper lieutenants wore distinguished blue Phase I clone trooper armor during the first years of the Clone Wars; later they wore armor that distinguished them by division and not by rank. ARC trooper lieutenants sported ARC trooper armor, which optionally provided some of these units with additional weaponry, such as hidden flamethrowers. These ARC lieutenants also wore skirt-like kamas that dampened blasts, had rangefinders attached to their helmets, and wore command shoulder pauldrons. However, the markings on the ARC lieutenants' armor remained blue.
