The clone shadow trooper was a variant of the Galactic Republic's clone troopers. The troopers functioned as the predecessors to the shadow troopers, a group of elite stormtroopers equipped with fully black experimental stealth armor serving the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War against the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
