An exoskeleton was an external skeleton in place of internal bones and was an anatomical feature of many sentient and non-sentient species, particularly insectoid species. Exoskeletons were usually composed of chitin and could be quite durable. Notable species that possessed exoskeletons included the Gand, the Geonosians, the Givin, the Kamarians, and the Verpine.


Blaze trooper exoskeletons

An exoskeleton was also a large suit of armor designed to augment its wearer's strength. Often it had weapons built into it.

The Deck Master of the New Hope was wearing an exoskeleton suit while working on the ship's hangar bay.

Exoskeletons included some of the dark trooper variants and the light exoskeleton and heavy exoskeleton. Other examples included clone blaze trooper armor and the later Imperial spacetrooper armor.

During the Empire Reborn crisis, Admiral Galak Fyyar made use of an exoskeleton-like cortosis armor with which he confronted Kyle Katarn.
