Storm troopers (Also known as Imperial Knights) are part of the Stormtrooper Corps and are the loyal servants of the Galactic Emperor.
Armor and equipment
The Storm Troopers are equipped with special armor plating laminated out of a dark blue colored material stronger than Kevlar and are more combat resilient by 30% than Earth made Kevlar. The special armor consists of 19 pieces under a power suit given to the units. The pieces including are a breastplate, round shoulder pauldrons, forearm plating, plating for the upper arms, plating for the legs including protection of the shins and upper legs and thighs, a gas mask with armor plating covering the tubes for the wearer as well as circular optics and a PASGT helmet. A backpack was also issued that can hold ammunition types depending on the firearm/weapon that was issued to the soldier.
The design for the gas mask was very distinctive, the mask was fitted with a plate covering the tubes and a mouth grid over the tube sockets. The optics can be fitted with night vision caps that could be easily snapped on and would flash green or orange depending on conditions.
Their helmet is based on the U.S Personal Armor System for Ground Troops (PASGT). The helmet could also be fitted with various equipment such as flashlights or a small pouch. Alternatively they can switch to an MICH design for tactical usage.
A Storm trooper's standard issue rifle is the HK-33 assault rifle with a 40 round magazine as well as a Heckler & Koch P9S handgun.
Storm troopers also use the German Army MG 42 and substituted by the MG3 for heavier combat and exclusively use firearms from Heckler & Koch such as the G3 rifle and the MP5. Alternatively they can use firearms from Colt and Smith & Wesson.
