Stormtroopers are one of the most recognized symbols of Palpatine’s mighty Imperial forces. Legions of troops occupied worlds throughout the galaxy, from the vacuum of space to the frigid ice planet Hoth to the desert climate of Tatooine. The Empire trained specialized units equipped to withstand the many diverse climates of the known universe, all to maintain tyrannical order throughout t the galaxy.
Sandtroopers were specialized stormtroopers deployed to Tatooine in search of droids C-3PO and R2-D2. Their armor, although visually similar to standard Imperial stormtroopers, had an advanced cooling system in both helmet and suit, necessary for such a harsh climate. With helmets only slightly different in markings, Sandtroopers are most notably distinguished by their shoulder pauldrons, with different colors denoting rank.
