A Phase II Dark Trooper.

Dark Troopers were experimental[1] combat droids created as part of the Galactic Empire's dark trooper program. The program's failure contributed to the Joint Chiefs becoming disenchanted with combat droids.[2] Despite this, Phase II dark troopers were deployed for evaluation by the Imperial Military during the Galactic Civil War and were utilized in the Battle for Tatooine.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

"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."
Kosh in Star Wars: Commander's Imperial campaign[src]

Dark Troopers were first introduced in the Star Wars Legends continuity in the video game Star Wars: Dark Forces. The canon version seen in Star Wars: Commander, resembles the purge trooper seen in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

The DT-series sentry droid was based on the dark trooper designs.[3]
