- "I really don't know what the mounties are so fussy about. While we futz around like holograms on the dejarik board, these lucky moes get to roll nobly across the desert on dewbacks."
- ―Sardis Ramsin, on Dewback troopers
Dewback troopers, also known as Dewback Riders, were sandtroopers who utilized dewbacks as mounts. They used jolts of electricity to control the beast, forcing them to batter down the property of those opposed to the Galactic Empire. In addition, Dewback troopers were known to utilize flamethrowers.
