The artillery stormtrooper, also known as the Mortar Stormtrooper, was a variant of stormtrooper that specialized in indirect fire weapons such as mortars while in the battlefield. They launched explosives of different types at a high angle to fall at precisely calculated coordinates from cover.
The stormtrooper was equipped with standard stormtrooper armor, albeit with yellow markings, a yellow pauldron, and a military backpack. The style and position of the yellow markings on the stormtrooper were identical to the red markings of the incinerator troopers deployed by the Imperial remnant led by Moff Gideon. One Mortar Stormtrooper participated in a skirmish on Tython.
