Imperial stormtroopers are highly trained soldiers of the Galactic Empire. These elite shock troops are deployed in overwhelming numbers to carry out the Emperor's will and maintain oppressive order throughout the galaxy. Stormtroopers are feared by Rebel freedom fighters because of their militaristic obedience and their unwavering commitment to the Emperor. Armed with standard Imperial blasters, stormtroopers wear anonymous white armor over black body gloves. The two-piece body glove is temperature controlled for survival within harsh environments, and the outer armor protects from projectile weapons and shrapnel, but provides limited protection from blaster fire. A stormtrooper's suit also contains a utility belt equipped with a comlink, grappling hook, handcuff binders, and macrobinoculars.
