BioEditAn ARF (Advanced Recon Force) Scout Trooper, ARF Trooper, or simply Scout Trooper; is a style or type of specialized armor or gear for Phases 1, 2, and 3 armored Clone Troopers.
There were many different camoflauged paintscheme variants for different units. As well as officers having personalized helmets. The main version, of course, is plain-white like with every other Standard version of armor from a different phase.
ARF Scout armor began as a simple unique helmet design for specialized Clone Troopers who wore Phase 1 armor; while ARF gear developed into a completely new style of gear or armor for Phase 2 armored Clone Troopers towards the end of the Clone Wars Era.
During the Galactic Civil War Era, ARF Scout Troopers of the 501st Legion (or Galactic Empire) wore upgraded and recycled versions of ARF gear or armor.
They mainly were deployed during short-range reconnaissance missons, as well as battles. Such as places like; Endor, Geonosis, Teth, and Kashyyyk. There is, however, quite a bit of confusion involving different names for different phases of armor. Such as: "Kashyyyk Trooper", which is actually a Phase 2 Forest Camo ARF Scout trooper.
ARF troopers are often under the rank of Coporal, even though Commander Trauma actually has/had a personalized ARF Trooper helmet like how Waxer and Boil have their own personalized sets.
Many forms of merchandise often confuse names of the actual place they battled, rather than the phase of armor and style of camoflauge. (Such as with Hasbro.)
