Phase I Darktroopers were units of Imperial Stormtrooper that served in the Galactic Empire's Stormtrooper Corps as the very first experimental units of Imperial Dark Trooper.

History Edit

Phase I Darktroopers were first put into service at some point prior to the Battle of Yavin as a part of the Empire's secret Dark Trooper Project. Unlike other units of the Dark Trooper Project, like the Phase 0, the Phase I Darktroopers were designed for melee combat, being equipped with a cortosis shield and a vibrosword arm. Eventually, due to their programming being purely designed for melee combat, the next Phase II Darktrooper was designed purely for standard issue combat.
