The Dark Trooper was an elite class of Storm Trooper in the Galactic Empire. Instead of traditional battle armor, the Dark Troopers wore what amounted to a compact personal combat vehicle. It was a powered suit capable of flight, brief periods in vacuum, and was fitted with a wide spectrum of sensor packages. The armor itself was forged from beskar and was capable of shrugging off just about anything, including lightsaber blades.
The Dark Trooper battle suit housed a multitude of deadly weapons, from miniaturized concussion missiles to powerful sonic blasters located on the palm of each hand. The suits greatly increased the strength and stamina of the wearer and was dextrous enough to allow the pilot to handle blasters and even melee weapons.
