- "…and loaded up these E-11s you've given us, which require one to aim as far as possible away from what one's shooting at in order to have half a chance of hitting it."

The E-11 medium blaster rifle, more commonly known as the E-11 blaster rifle was a light but powerful blaster rifle manufactured by BlasTech Industries. It served as the standard issue weapon of Imperial stormtroopers. The blaster rifle was the successor to BlasTech's E-10 blaster rifle and was based on the DC-15A blaster carbine used by clone troopers during the Clone Wars.
The E-11 blaster rifle combined lethal firepower with impressive range and a versatile design. Featuring three power settings; lethal, stun, and sting, the rifle proved useful for a variety of combat situations. An advanced cooling system resulted in the blaster's superior performance, especially useful for its fully automatic fire setting. The E-11 also included a telescopic range-finding sight and a folding three-position stock, which could convert the blaster into a full-length rifle and could be modified to house a glowrod. Its standard issue power cells carried energy for 200 shots however the rifle could also be loaded with plasma cartridges that could last for more than 500 shots.
