Missile Trooper

The Missile Trooper is a Galactic Federation Trooper. The soldier itself is taller than any standard trooper encountered in the Prime series (presumably due to superior armour), and fires powerful missiles. These are the only differences between Missile Troopers and GF Troopers. In Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, there is a Missile Trooper corpse in the Temple Grounds. It somehow appears in the Hive Chamber A after Samus Aran's exploration, and it was possessed by the Ing, becoming the Dark Missile Trooper.
