The DC-19 Stealth Carbine was designed specifically for use by clone troopers designated Shadow Troopers. The weapon uses a special blend of Tibanna Gas to achieve an invisible blaster bolt without the tell-tale red, green or blue contrail. Painstaking efforts were also made in dampening the noise of the blast. As such, the Shadow Troopers proved able in assassination and other covert duties, allowing some respite for Republic commandos and ARC Troopers. The weapon would later be studied and serve as much of the basis for the Xerrol Nightstinger- another sniper weapon with an invisible blaster bolt.
Due to the invisibility and nigh-silence of the blaster bolts fired by the DC-19, the -10 penalty when using the Snipe feature of the Stealth skill is negated. The DC-19 uses a standard Power Pack, but must be reloaded after 10 shots. However, the Stealth Carbine uses a specialize gas canister (Each costing 500 credits, and weighs 0.25 kg) which must be replaced every 500 shots.
