Phase II dark troopers were heavily armored elite 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. Several phase II dark troopers could be deployed by Imperial Troop Transports during combat operations.
Behind the scenesEdit
- "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, if the player sides with the Empire
Phase II 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.
