Bio/HistoryEditThe DC-17 is a single-fire blaster pistol which is/was used by the Clone Troopers and Officers during the Clone Wars Era.
Clone Officers; such as Elite and ARC; were the ones who primarily used them for combat, yet they are/were meant to be used as secondary weapons.
Several Republic Officers or Republic Naval Officers, as well as several Senior Clone Officers, often used the DC-17 as a spare weapon for defense. (Such as being captured.)
Captain Rex (an Elite Clone Officer) and Captain Fordo (an ARC Trooper or Officer) both used/use DC-17 blaster pistols as their primary weapon.Captain Fordo actually created the silenced version of the DC-17, known as the DC-17S. The DC-17 and DC-17S are loosely based from the Colt M1911 (or simply M9) pistol series.
