STORM TROOPERS
Nate BBY = Mime the Battle of Yawn ABY = Mei the Battle of Yawn
stormtroopers were the elite
soldiers of the Galactic Empire
They were distinguished from all other military units
by their signature white armour
Members of the Rebel Alliance had several names
for stormtroopers, including whiteouts, plastic soldiers
snowmen The Boys in White, bucketloads and plastic boys
By BBY, roughly of the stormtroopers were
clones based on the Fett template
The Fel Empire or the New Order, was the name
given to what remained of the Galactic Empire some
time after 44 ABY Jagged Fel was the new
Emperor of the New Order
Under Felt reign he aloud women' and
to join the Empire
The loyalty that stormtroopers possessed was so complete
that they could be neither bribed, seduced or blackmailed
to abandon their allegiance to the Empire. (Jedi mind tricks
seem to do the job though)
All stormtroopers donn high grade blastoid armour
impervious to most pistols and solid projectile weapons
and would protect the trooper from some military grade rifles
The Eall blaster rifle was the standard issue
weapon of the stormtroopers. The Eall blaster rifle
was largely based on the blaster rifle
the standard weapon of the clone troopers
Stormtrooper commanders were responsible for enforcing
Imperial law and order on the most hostile worlds that
hadn' t yet been fully subjugated to the will of
Emperor Palpatine. They were the 'successor'
of the Old Republic' s legendary ARC troopers
Scout troopers were a variant of an Imperial
stormtrooper, scout troopers were exceptional additions to the
Imperial Military as reconnaissance troops, spies and
survivalists. They were especially excellent marksmen
and so they were particularly useful as assassins
Snow troopers were the successors of the clone cold assault
troopers, The troopers backpacks housed the main heating unit
main power cell, communications unit, and a homing beacon.
Snowtroopers could survive up to two weeks in even the harshest
frozen environments on their internal suit power and supplies
They also wore white heated pants

Elite soldiers equipped with one of the best armors in the galaxy and E-11 blaster rifles.
Dies from a single shot from a group of untrained kids.

actually since the rebels illegally modded their guns, every stormtrooper you see get shot on screen, is probably dead.

If i remember correctly Han, Chewy, and Luke stole some E-11 blasters rifles along with the armor, so base on huntergriff comments that mean they are dead.

to be fair, Han and Chewie aren't exactly untrained. Leia's been using firearms since she was 11 odd, and luke... luke's a jedi. they're quite accurate with blasters.

Actually, they killed pretty much everyone on the tantive IV in episode 4 right at the beginning, and they pretty much wiped the floor with the rebels prior to the movies...hell they even kicked everyone's ass in empire strikes back. they could have also been told to not kill luke on bespin, and to let han, luke, chewie, leia, etc. leave the death star since they put a tracking beacon on the millinium falcon and it would have led them to the rebel base.

also one of them shot Leia in the arm in episode 6.

Also their weapons have a stock that they never use, so...that could also be a factor in this.

They missed the company in the death star so they could go to the rebel base with the tracer on board the Falcon. Wiped up any other time though.

How about before the deathstar when Luke, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han, Chewy, and the Drones were escaping that one planet and the Stormtroops had clear line of sight and yet the whole squad missed. Are you seriously telling me they planned that?

In another comp, wasn't it also mentioned a certain one of those troopers shot the commander who had lined up a perfect shot on Han? The rest were firing blindly, either out of stupidity or to keep Han from being able to shoot the commander. And then the commander was shot before he could kill Han. Something like that.

starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Davin_Felth It was this guy.

Storm troopers were based on nazis. If you look at the top of darth vader's helmet as well as a walker operator, their helmets resemble that of a nazis.

it's probably a reference, I mean the Original trilogy was supposed to be nazis vs allies, and in the case of episode 6 towards the end, vietcong (rebels/ewoks) Vs america (Empire)

that isn't speculation, In the director's commentary for the 2004 re-release of Return of the Jedi, as well as the documentary Empire of Dreams, Lucas also cited the Viet Cong as being the primary inspiration for the Ewoks, particularly their defeat of the Galactic Empire. starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ewok#Behind_the_scenes

Yeah but there's the question...

What did the empire do wrong? They rose in power with evil means, but the only reasoning for why the rebels are trying to take over is "They are evil, kill kill kill" which doesn't sound like they have good deeds in mind.

What do you mean what they did wrong? Enslave whole planets, murder billions of their own citizens because they didn't agree with new rule, work their workers to death while they build super weapons such as Super Star Destroyers and Death Star and you will probably find much more examples of mismanagement. Unlike the nazi third german reich they are clearly evil and are shown in the movies as such. Rebels wanted to take over because of all this. Expanded Universe Galactic Empire(more like Local Fel Empire at the end) is much more grey because evil influence of the sith lords is gone though.

basically the **** hit the fan whenever they destroyed alderaan and tried to cover it up. this rallied every alderaanian that was of the planet against the empoire and they ended up fighting with the rebellion. this was just one of the many reasons the rebellion won.

Fun fact about their armor: Their armor would basically dissipate the energy of the blaster bolts that hit them. This rendered them incapacitated rather than dead, so they could basically receive medical attention after the battles.

To combat this, the rebellion had to illegally modify their weapons or use stormtrooper rifles, which were actually banned for civilian use, since they were powerful enough to actually penetrate stormtrooper armor.

Wait, so if it would knock them out for the fight then why did the rebellion use illegal weapons? Wouldn't incapacitating them be cheaper because they don't have to modify their weapons , better for the cause because they could scavenge entirely intact armor which would still deflect glancing blows , and more morally just? Not even to mention the fact that they could interrogate, or possibly even convert the captured stormtroopers.

put a stormtrooper to sleep, you gotta keep fighting once he wakes up. over, and over, and over. put a stormie in the ground, and he's not gonna trouble you again. considering the odds against the Alliance in the Galactic Civil War, letting the enemy heal up and re-use their troops would have been a terrible idea.

Yeah, but that just sounds like something you read on imperial propaganda posters, and besides the wording was ambiguous enough that it may mean that they're immune to those things in the short term, but they could possibly be converted in the long term.
