The Advanced Robloxian Troops (ART) is a futuristic clan that is currently owned by robloxianCEO and lives on the planet Raffica. The clan was founded in 2009 by Simoon68. The clan hasn't seen much action, and their members are mostly filled with old ROBLOX veterans.
Little is known about the beginning of ART but the group was originally made by Simoon68 in 2009. (Creator of the famous Marble Ride Storm game.) The clan was active back then and had around 2k members. Simoon68 had a functional base for ART as well as uniforms. Sources say Simoon was scammed out of ART and then it was passed down through a bunch of leaders. Most of the leaders only held it for about 1-2 months. The original group was shutdown by RAA in 2013, but a new one was made by robloxianCEO
Well-known ART leaders
These are the most recognizable leaders that I can remember. (From earliest to current leader)
Simoon68 - Founded the group in 2009. (Creator of the famous Marble Ride Storm game.) The clan was active back then and had around 2k members. Simoon68 had a functional base for ART as well as uniforms. Sources say Simoon was scammed out of ART and then it was passed down through a bunch of leaders. Most of the leaders only held it for about 1-2 months.
Deop - Was very well-known in clans and made clan logos. Held ART for about 5 months and kept it going active.
Jbayan /LordVahalka - Jbayan (soon to become LordVahalka) got ART when he and Deop traded clans. Jbayan had owned and created Stealth Organization and eventually traded it for ART. Jbayan kept activity up but was rather slow with releasing new bases. When He moved to the account LordVahalka, he destroyed the group by neglecting it, and sending it into a state of irreversable inactivity. The only high ranks that bothered to try and keep the clan active were devinzeth and robloxianCEO .
RobloxianCEO (Dantilith I of Raffica)- Eventually LordVahalka logged on and realized that he destroyed a once active group and decided to give the group to his good friend robloxianCEO. RobloxianCEO started a reformation thaty boosted activity by a little margin. Unfortunately most of the high ranks were inactive and robloxianCEO had very little money to pay for ads and uniforms. RobloxianCEO then appointed Levidoo6 as Second in Command and he helped with getting the current members active. The reform lasted a whole 5 months and rarely anything was being taken place to boost activity. RobloxianCEO was using LordVahalka's ART uniform and just finished ART's first base. (SEE FORT SECTION) RobloxianCEO got PG'd twice and gave the group to his 2iC until the issue was resolved. Around 14/12/2012, robloxianCEO was PG'd a second time but none of the trusted high ranks had BC. He gave the group to his friend, Azeekee1 to hold while that issue was resolved. Guess what? Azeekee stole ART and demoted all the high ranks and replaced them with his friends. Azeekee1, about a day later, he gave it to a Vaktovian named xerland2 .
Xerland2 - People say Xerland2 was just as bad as LordVahalka. Although he only held it for half a month, he left most of the stuff to his untrained high ranks to do. He made a base that only allowed swords which made no sense because it was "Advance" Robloxian Troop's. Xerland2 later gave ART back to Azeekee1 (who was using mathiekiller at the time.)
Azeekee1 - Despite the fact that Azeekee1 stole ART from robloxianCEO, he did take quick measures to try and return the clan active. He actually went to robloxianCEO and asked him to leave all this behind him and become his Second in Command. Azeekee1 is known throughout several clans, including X-101st Legion, First Encounter Assault Recon, and Nightfall Clan. Azeekee1 was also PG'd a month later, and the original group was lost for good. DZyrus picked up ART, and completely destroyed the group.
DZryus - During this time, DZryus dressed as a 2.0 shaggy, and increased tensions with an old enemy, The Allied Robloxian Troops, by copying their uniforms, forts, etc. It was unknown what happened to him and the group later, but it was shutdown by RAA.
Notable High Ranks and Members
These are notable high ranks from RobloxianCEO-Azeekee's era.
Devinzeth - Retired General. Was in ART for quite some time. Was to be named Second in Command of ART when LordVahalka passed the group to robloxianCEO, but LordVahalka wished that Levidoo6 become 2iC
Bowmaster9 - Retired Colonel. Was also in ART for quite some time. Bowmaster9 was ne of the more active high ranks during LordVahalka's time in ART.
Levidoo6 - Retired Second in Command. Levidoo6 was ART's second in command for quite some time. He was very loyal, and held the group for robloxianCEO when needed. Levidoo6 retired once ART was shutdown, and to continue to work on his clan The Burn Clan.
Matt1590 - Current Second in Command. Matt1590 is the oldest ART member still in ART today. He comes back all the way from the Simoon68 era, and continues to remain in the shutdown ART, incase the group was to ever be revived.
Kaj510 - Governor of Laifirt. Retired Lieutenant. Kaj510 was an active soldier in RobloxianCEO's era. He currently is retired from the military, but is the current governor of Raffica's provincial planet, Laifirt.
NickNickNick1999 - Retired Corporal. Was an extremely active soldier. Unfortunately he never logged back on one day.
ART was originally an empire that strived to take out smaller clans. The imperial leaders were: Simoon68, Deop, and LordVahalka. Once ART was passed to RobloxianCEO (Dantilith I), he believed in a new type of government: democracy. He established the Republic of Raffica and voted council members into power. The republic system was what ART needed to encourage members to participate.
The planetary provinces are:
Raffica, Spirit, Perseus, Laifirt, Redcliff (Flags here: http://www.roblox.com/My/Sets.aspx?id=824106)
The Revolution was a group of demoted high ranks that came together when Azeekee1 took over ART and threw Dantilith I out of power and stripped his rank. The Revolution appointed Dantilith as leader and they got together a fair amount of people that believed in democracy. The Revolution set out with one goal: Kill Azeekee1, and imprision xerland2. The revolution didn't last long, and Dantilith actually got most of his power back. It was a semi-successful revolution.

Forts and Bases
Fort Aequivalere: The first ART fort. Located within a mountainous region on Raffica. The fort served as a base of operations during the ART/ART war. This fort was heavily guarded during the Advance Robloxian Troop's vs. The Allied Robloxian Troops war. The fort was unfortunately lost when mass amounts of ART (allied robloxian troops) and United Clan of ROBLOX mass-raided it. The fort is now decomissioned but will forever be a distant memory. Aequivalere stands for equivalent in Latin.
Spirit Mining Outpost: The second ART fort. After Aequivalere was decomissioned, a new moon base with top-of-the-edge technology replaced it. The base was located on Raffica's moon Spirit, and served as a haltic mining outpost. The base included: updated raycasting, vehicles, killstreaks, new raid system, and much more. The outpost was named after KingSpirit.
Fort Aequalitatis: The third and current ART fort. Aequalitatis is an island base located on top of tall cliffs. The fort was constructed in 2337 during the revolution. It was finished in 2340. The fort's main purpose is to replace Aequivalere after it was lost. Aequalitatis stands for equality in Latin.
