Phase I clone trooper armor was the armor worn by early clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.

Characteristics

Clone troopers in standard Phase I armor.

With some design assistance from Jango Fett, the basic armor design became composed of twenty form-fitting plates of lightweight plastoid-alloy composite, sealed to a black bodysuit and weighed just under forty kilograms. Because the armor would be used by an army of physically identical clones, only one size was needed. It loosely resembled Mandalorian shock trooper armor. The austere sensibilities of Kaminoan society resulted in the blindingly pristine white state of each set of armor, although command units originally had stripes of different colors, depending on their rank (yellow meaning commander, red meaning captain, blue meaning lieutenant, and green meaning sergeant).

However, as the Clone Wars progressed, some troopers customized their armor to show their individuality- an examples of this is Captain Rex modifying his armor with blue paint and a unique pauldron. Another example is Clone Commander Cody's modification to his helmet. Instead of having the eye slot surrounded by yellow, a yellow sun visor was added to the helmet. A light source can also be attached to the helmets to illuminate dark areas.[1]

Phase I cold assault armor variant

The armor was heavy, uncomfortable, and not very well liked by clone troopers; it was also not very resilient against concentrated fire; hence it being often referred to by non-clone GAR personnel as a "body bucket". Its inconvenience was due to the Kaminoans' knowledge, or lack thereof, of Human anatomy. It did, however, have coolant systems to prevent overheating, and also included enhanced breathing filters inside the T-visor. The armor could take some modular attachments, like a bacta pack for a medic or small flamethrower for Advanced Recon Commandos. The armor suit also resisted vacuum environments, allowing the trooper to continue to fight outside of spacecraft for a time (though recovery was needed).

Some armor, depending on what planet the trooper was stationed, were customized to fit the planet's conditions. For example, water planets such as Glee Anselm had water resistant armor, and advanced breathing equipment, for underwater. Some trooper's armor had symbols to designate the squad that they were in.

During the later part of the Clone Wars, it was mainly replaced by Phase II armor. However, some clones chose to keep their Phase I armor. Even after the Declaration of a New Order, Phase I armor was still worn by some units of the newly-christened Stormtrooper Corps.
