Looks like an MG-42, even the Empire likes German engineering.

A modified MG34 was actually used to make the prop for the E-11s, the sniper rifle used by Imperial scout troopers. Also based off of the MG34 is the DLT-19 Heavy Blaster Rifle. There was also the A295 blaster rifle, based off of the German StG44 Sturmgewehr and the E-11, made off of a Sterling submachine gun.

I'm not surprised as the Stormtroopers are inspired of their German equivalents. Along with the cylindrical equipment on the backs of their belts which the Germans used. (I forget what the container was used for)

Cool info BTW.

I think the little cylinder you speak of is a thermal detonator. Basically, a grenade.

Thanks, I spent perhaps too much time reading into Star Wars, especially on the wiki.
