Soldiers unswervingly loyal to the
Emperor, stormtroopers represented the most visible extension of Imperial might.
They were shock troopers meant to strike with speed and accuracy, putting down
insurrections and maintaining order on the farflung worlds of the Empire.
Stormtroopers served both the ground-based armies of Palpatine's forces, and the
space-based Imperial starfleet.
Stormtrooper training stressed complete indoctrination in the tenets of the New
Order, and individuals would obey their officers without question, without
regard to the rights of others or even to their own safety. Stormtroopers
abandoned individuality in exchange for their loyalty. They are completely
encased in a white armored spacesuit shell, and are armed with blaster pistols
or blaster rifles. Their helmets contain comlinks for long-range communications.
Officers were denoted with colored shoulder pauldrons. Specific environments
called for specially trained and equipped stormtroopers, such as the
snowtroopers that besieged the ice world of Hoth and the lightly-armored scout
trooper that patrolled the forests of Endor.
