- "Operative, I have apportioned some experimental Dark Troopers to Tatooine for evaluation. I have dispatched them to you for this operation. Do not fail the Empire."
Phase II dark troopers were heavily armored experimental units used by the Galactic Empire some time between the Battle of Yavin and the Battle of Hoth. They were equipped with assault cannons that enabled them to storm enemy defenses. A few years later, the Purge Troopers led by Commander Bragh wore a suit of armor very similar to that of the Phase II dark troopers.
Behind the scenesEdit
Phase II dark troopers were first introduced in the Star Wars Legends continuity in the video game Star Wars: Dark Forces. The canon version, however, resembles the Purge trooper seen in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
