Summary
Phase I clone trooper armor was the armor worn by early clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. To humans, the clone trooper's armor appears white overall, but to Kaminoans, clone trooper armor has many colors because they see in the Ultra-violet spectrum of light. This is also the same in the case of their homes and other buildings. Phase I armor was later replaced by Phase II clone trooper armor as the Clone Wars progressed. 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, as a result of Jango's participation in its design. 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, the colorized markings began to identify the troopers with specific units. The helmets usually had fins on the top.
