All Stormtrooper Types and Variants Part 1

August 30, 2019


This is part 1 of a series that will go over
all the different Stormtrooper types and variants. First are the standard stormtroopers. They
were the most common soldiers of the galactic empire, and served as ever present reminders
of the absolute power of emperor palpatine. They wore all white armor that was designed
to instill fear into the enemy. It protected them from the environment and gave them limited
protection from blasters. The standard issue weapon for them was the E-11 blaster rifle.
They each also possessed a thermal detonator attached to their lower back. Standard stormtroopers
were usually used to attack the enemy straight on with speed and with overwhelming numbers. Second are the desert stormtroopers, also
known as sandtroopers. They were equipped with modified armor and equipment to withstand
the harsh climates of desert planets like Tatooine. They had additional training in
specialized areas and advanced cooling systems in both their helmets and suits that offered
them protection from extreme heats. Their armor was slightly different from regular
stormtrooper’s, having a distinctive diamond-shaped left knee plate, non-ribbed chest and back
plate connectors as well as reinforced abdominal plating. They also wore a SD-48 survival backpack.. Third are the cold assault stormtroopers,
also known as snowtroopers. They were trained to operate in arctic climates and wore armor
that was specialized to the climate extremes of frozen worlds such as Hoth. To ease breathing
in extremely cold atmospheres, a breather hood enveloped the snowtrooper’s faceplate
and fed into the suit liner. Each trooper was equipped with terrain-grip boots, a standard
utility belt containing high-tension wire, grappling hooks, ion flares, additional blaster
ammunition, a survival kit, and ration packs. The troopers’ backpacks carried the main heating
unit, main power cell, communications unit, and a homing beacon. Fourth are the Incinerator stormtroopers,
also known as flametroopers or incinerator troopers. They wore stormtrooper armor with
red markings that was exceptionally heat-resistant, able to withstand high temperatures. They
were equipped with flamethrowers. Imperial flametroopers were sent on missions where
an example needed to be made. They would march into settlements and burn them to the ground,
leaving nothing standing and would often burn bystanders alive as well. Fifth are the Zero-G assault stormtroopers,
also know as spacetroopers. They wore a two-meter tall set of Zero-G armor that interfaced with
standard stormtrooper armor. The suit provided a hermetic seal against the vacuum of space
and propulsion that allowed spacetroopers to move and fight in space for extended periods.
They were trained to capture enemy vessels intact. The suit allowed them to carry heavy
firepower, turning each trooper into the equivalent of a light tank. There was another style of
this armor that was lighter, and was used during the building of the first death star.
It was basically standard stormtrooper armor vacuum sealed, with a rebreather unit and
a back-mounted jetpack. Sixth are the Aquatic assault stormtroopers,
also known as seatroopers or aquatic troopers. They were used by the Galactic Empire to maintain
a presence on the many aquatic worlds under its rule. The armor of the seatrooper was
based on the lightweight scout trooper design. It was worn over a two-piece environmental
body glove that provides protection from toxic-water environments. The seatrooper’s armor was pressure-sealed
to a maximum of ten atmospheres and included a rebreather that allowed them to stay underwater
for more than an hour. Seatroopers usually used the SG-4 blaster rifle which was capable
of firing miniature harpoons underwater. Seventh are the Imperial jumptroopers, also
known as skytroopers or air assault troopers. They were assigned to the battlefields with
the most treacherous terrain. They wore standard Stormtrooper armor, though their shoulders
were black and had patches of red paint on them. Their armor design was similar to the
armor worn by Commander Cody. They were equipped with an AJP-400 Hush-About personal jet pack
that allowed them to burst through the air in short spurts of about 20 seconds and allowed
them to hover over a location for an extended period of time. They also were also sometimes
seen wearing standard stormtrooper armor with a jetpack. Eighth are the Scout troopers, also known
as biker scouts. They were usually used as reconnaissance troops, spies and survivalists.
They were especially excellent marksmen, and thus they were regarded as the finest snipers
in service to the Galactic Empire. Their light armor allowed them to be more mobile than
regular stormtroopers, but offered less protection. They usually used blaster pistols or sniper
rifles, depending on their assignment. Last for Part 1 are the Imperial shock troopers.
They served as elite frontline forces of the Empire, and also as bodyguards for Emperor
Palpatine himself. They wore extra heavy plate armor, which provided them great protection
from blaster fire. Their armor styles would vary, with the red markings being the most
distinctive style of the shock troopers. They would usually carry heavy blasters and rocket
launchers. In some cases, Imperial shock troopers wore Clone Wars era shock trooper armor. Thanks for watching part 1 of this series.
We will continue going over the other stormtrooper types in part 2 which will be added to the
description of this video once it’s posted.

  1. I'd just like to say this was a good video, and an early congratulations to you for 100k (I know it's not at 100k subs yet but who cares)

  2. Hey fact free ! please you can help us to back the clone wars shor back!?

    https://www.change.org/p/lucasfilm-bring-star-wars-the-clone-wars-season-7-8

  3. i don't know why i keep watching these videos even though i've only watched 1 Star Wars movie in my whole life, the 4th one, the 1st in the story.

  4. i subscribed when there were 3000 subscribers but now you have 100000 subscribers?!? you deserve it carry on with the good videos

  5. do you know if beings would join the stormtroopers just to escape poverty in their home world's ? not sure if this concept was ever brought up.

  6. I thought storm troopers were not suppose to have colors or markings. So why does the shock troopers get to have the red markings?

  7. Stormtroopers were NOT the most common soldiers of the Galactic Empire! In fact, they were elite soldiers belonging to a branch that was independent from the Imperial Army, the Stormtrooper Corps. The standard Imperial Army troopers were the most common soldiers (they look like General Veers in his Hoth outfit). Stormtroopers are the ones that fight the important battles and hold important planets, while Imperial Army soldiers are stationed on less important planets. You can compare it to the Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS.

    Edit: I'm talking about Legends canon, btw. I have no idea how it is in Disney canon.

  8. Do the different types and variants of the lightsaber, including the reason for the curved saber of dooku.

  9. I have a serious question: How long does a stormtrooper have to serve in the military? Do they get discharged? Do veterans get benefits and integrate back into society?
