"Using experimental technology built around guerrilla tactics, the FTL trooper can 'Phase Shift' by displacing herself into another dimension while moving and avoid damage."
This unit can move without being fired upon by defences until she stops to shoot. Cannot jump walls, so requires a breach, otherwise she will have to shoot the wall and then become exposed to defences.
COMMENT: Based on Faceroll's description of a 'demolitions expert', the FTL probably started out as a 'spec ops for diamond depots' - run in, plant a charge, then fight normally. Somewhere in development they removed the explosives; Without this, the unit makes little sense and has very limited use compared to an RPG troop, or even 5 snipers.
