Stormtroopers

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

I think i read up that they edited that scene after it became popular and added in a *Thunk* sound effect
User avatar #2 - huntergriff ONLINE (03/30/2014) [-]
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.
#32 to #2 - anon (03/30/2014) [-]
That fact was hilarious indeed.

fun, not funny. Dickwad

or you could throw a rock and kill them
User avatar #239 to #238 - huntergriff ONLINE (06/18/2014) [-]
except you couldn't...You probably could if you Incapped them with a rock then ran over and beat the **** out of them, like the ewoks did.
#100 to #2 - jaked (03/31/2014) [-]
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.
#141 to #100 - anon (03/31/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #155 to #100 - huntergriff ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
because it's a freakin' war. and they don't interrogate as far as i know.
#118 to #100 - anon (03/31/2014) [-]
The comp that you only just read stated that they couldn't be swayed in their faith in the empire, dicktits.
#121 to #118 - jaked (03/31/2014) [-]
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.
#107 to #100 - anon (03/31/2014) [-]
You sir, are the future.
#56 - thepandaking (03/31/2014) [-]
Scout Troopers are my favorite non-essential characters in the entire series, I don't know what it is but I just love their armor and their speeder bikes.

#183 to #56 - anon (03/31/2014) [-]
It's called a swoop bike you dumb **** .
User avatar #220 to #183 - thepandaking (03/31/2014) [-]
not really tho

maybe they're called that in like a line of some obscure EU book but in the movies they're speeder bikes or speeders
#20 - tazzerz (03/30/2014) [-]
Hey Psych, great comp as usual, What do you think of a "Greatest battles" comp, One for the Empire, The Rebellion , and another two for the CIS and GAR? All talking about successful battle for the side the comp is based on?
User avatar #22 to #20 - psychadelicace (03/30/2014) [-]
PM me the details and more info, sounds interesting i'll read through it when i get back on tomorrow morning

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.
User avatar #37 to #3 - flnonymousseven (03/30/2014) [-]
incapacitated, not dead.
User avatar #54 to #37 - huntergriff ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
actually since the rebels illegally modded their guns, every stormtrooper you see get shot on screen, is probably dead.
#78 to #37 - swagloon (03/31/2014) [-]
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.
#142 to #3 - anon (03/31/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #132 to #3 - cubanwhiteman (03/31/2014) [-]
Forget the fact that they were killed by sticks and stones by the Ewocs. or however you spell those faggots names.
User avatar #5 to #4 - swagloon (03/30/2014) [-]
Still always missed.
User avatar #6 to #5 - huntergriff ONLINE (03/30/2014) [-]
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.
#40 to #6 - anon (03/31/2014) [-]
Those on tantive were members of the 501 legion aka actually competent fett clones.
User avatar #8 to #5 - huntergriff ONLINE (03/30/2014) [-]
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.
#79 to #8 - anon (03/31/2014) [-]
Ah yes the famous good guy get shot in the limb while all the bad guys die.
User avatar #14 to #5 - kennyh (03/30/2014) [-]
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.
#80 to #14 - swagloon (03/31/2014) [-]
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?

User avatar #108 to #80 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #97 to #80 - huntergriff ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
that...is actually a good point. then a gain, han was literally two feet away from the falcon's ramp thing.
#86 to #3 - mralice (03/31/2014) [-]
All part of the greater goal...
Its for the same reason they always miss.
I know, not really, but still.

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.

Don't you mean KKK?

No, but the officers do remind me of them. Have a look at Grand Moff Tarkin.
#165 to #151 - anon (03/31/2014) [-]
in dutch mof is a slur for germans, in ww2 it was a slur for nazis, so the rank "grand moff" just sounds stupid to me, "grand nazi" wtf
User avatar #174 to #165 - huntergriff ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
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)
#200 to #174 - anon (03/31/2014) [-]
psst
The vietcong didn't beat America.
How would the rebels turn from allied forces into American haters?
I don't think it's a smart idea to speculate the last part.
User avatar #204 to #200 - huntergriff ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
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
User avatar #7 to #1 - huntergriff ONLINE (03/30/2014) [-]
well...I mean the stormtroopers in general were based off of the nazi's
User avatar #36 to #7 - ltbuttstrong ONLINE (03/30/2014) [-]
Thank you for pointing that out mate. I mean they even take their name from the Nazi's assault troops, you'd think more people would notice they're based off them
User avatar #122 to #36 - bunt (03/31/2014) [-]
I always thought the entire Imperial Empire was based off the Nazis...
User avatar #175 to #122 - tonkkax (03/31/2014) [-]
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.
#205 to #175 - captainp (03/31/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #212 to #205 - tonkkax (03/31/2014) [-]
Well they don't bring that out so well in the movies...

At least back in the day when i saw it as younger. Maybe i just overheard that part.
User avatar #225 to #212 - huntergriff ONLINE (04/01/2014) [-]
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.

Most advanced armor in the galaxy....

Dies from arrows from forest creatures....
#112 to #105 - golfbob (03/31/2014) [-]
It's not designed to block an arrow, it's meant to stop a laser going through you.
User avatar #125 to #112 - lyiat ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
You're joking, right? I hope to God you are. Plastiod armor is made to defend against all threats, including solid projectiles. Stormtrooper's armor was specifically made for kinetic weapons because clone trooper phase I and phase II armor was no longer required, as the Empire didn't need to deal with technologically advanced threats all that often, they needed protection from slugthrowers and vibroblades. Infact, the thing it was worst at was taking hits from blaster fire, having to rely personal ray-shield projectors, which overheated under sustained fire. The only thing the armor did was lessen the damage of a blaster on your person, it didn't stop it. They can even withstand hits from FC-1 flechette launchers.

There's no ******* way the ewoks should have been able to take on the stormtrooper legions, and only where capable of it because of PLOT. The scene was originally supposed to take place on Kashyyyk and the ewoks were supposed to be Wookiees with bowcasters (think rail-gun combo'd with a crossbow) and other technology. Budget issues and materials however restricted what they could do. Unable to drastically rewrite the script, however, they went with a new race and a new planet.
#136 to #125 - juter (03/31/2014) [-]
The stormtroopers just moved in. Ewoks have been living there for centuries. They know the terrain like a nest; home turf advantage.

That's... completely irrelevant. Their most powerful weapon can't even harm a stormtrooper. It doesn't matter how many rocks you throw at an Abrams tank, you're not going to damage it.
User avatar #161 to #147 - riotshieldman (03/31/2014) [-]
your argument is completely irrelevent, no one uses kinetic ammunition in star wars, its all lasers, so thats why it only defends from lasers, don't try to sound like some ******* know it all cause you dont.

You know absolutely **** about Star Wars. First of all, they're blasters. They fire particle beams, not LAZORZ. Lasers are focused light. Second of all, tons of races use slugthrowers, which are basically normal guns. You see them on Tatioone, the Tuskan Raiders use them. Chewbakka's bowcaster is also a kinectic weapon, even though it looks like an energy weapon.

The Empire didn't require protection from blaster fire after it suppressed the galaxy, it needed protection from primitive weaponry as it controlled pretty much all the advanced tech everywhere. They owned all the illegal trade and didn't need to fight anyone on their level of technology. The reason why the rebellion was so damn successful was the fact that they were much better armed than anything the Empire had to deal with in it's entire history after the Jedi Purge and the Clone Rebllion.

How big of a boulder would you need to bend the primary gun barrel?
User avatar #231 to #230 - lyiat ONLINE (04/01/2014) [-]
The M1 Abrams is made out of chobham armor, which is made out of layers of various alloys of steel, ceramics, plastic composites, and kevlar. The frontal turret is rated to have about... around 37 inches of protection against kinetic energy penetration attacks. Further more, Abrams are frequently equipped with what's called reactive armor (basically, armor that explodes to protect against shaped explosives).

So... basically, a really big ******* boulder moving really fast.
User avatar #232 to #231 - lyiat ONLINE (04/01/2014) [-]
Also, we're talking like... granite boulder. Not sandstone or some **** . Heavy duty stone, dense material.
User avatar #234 to #232 - juter (04/01/2014) [-]
Bend the main barrel 15 degrees down and that tank is ******* useless.
User avatar #215 to #125 - huntergriff ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
it wasn't due to budgeting problems. Lucas always intended for the empire to be beaten by a primitive race, you are right, it was supposed to take place on Kashyyyk, but it was already established that the Wookiees could use technology like Bowcasters and **** with relative ease, so lucas decided to create the ewoks.
User avatar #218 to #215 - lyiat ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
That doesn't change a single part of my point. Ewoks are protected by the power of plot alone. There's a reason why 'plot arrows' is a Star Wars joke.

I think the only time I've ever seen Stormtrooper armor be even remotely effective is in the novel "Survivor's Quest". It is effective against ancient ass low power blasters.

BTW, I'd highly recommend the novel. A really great read, and the Stormtroopers are badass
