Imperial Stormtrooper Forest Camouflage Armor, or Imperial Forest Camouflage Armor for short, was a type of battle armor used by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. A recent development from Imperial Ordinance during the time following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, this armor was not routinely issued to troops. Another form of this armor was Imperial Scout Trooper Forest Camouflage Armor.
Created for the Galactic Empire, Imperial Stormtrooper Forest Camouflage Armor was a type of battle armor which closely resembled the armor worn by standard Imperial stormtroopers. However, instead of a clean white appearance, the armor was patterned in a mottled greenish-brown hue, which allowed it to blend into the forest environments for which it was designed. An orange stormtrooper pauldron also complemented the armor.
Imperial Stormtrooper Forest Camouflage Armor, or Imperial Forest Camouflage Armor for short, was a recent development from Imperial Ordinance which saw limited use during the Galactic Civil War following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY. It was not routinely issued to Imperial troops, yet at least one individual, a Trandoshan named Sstrigge, wore most of this suit of armor during Life Day festivities in the cities of Dearic, Doaba Guerfel, and Wayfar. Sstrigge worked with the Empire to sabotage these Life Day festivities, as the Empire believed the Alliance to Restore the Republic was using them as an opportunity to hide contraband in celebratory gift boxes.
The right bracer of this camouflage armor could also be found next to the skeletal remains of a stormtrooper on the balcony of a large house on Naboo overrun by Mummers, a criminal organization of bootleggers. Other pieces of armor accompanied the corpse, including a helmet, chest plate, and gloves belonging to a suit of standard white stormtrooper armor. Another variant of this armor, called Imperial Scout Trooper Forest Camouflage Armor, also saw use by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War. This other version of armor more closely resembled the armor worn by scout troopers. The Rebel Alliance likewise made use of their own type of forest camouflage armor, known as Rebel Assault Forest Camouflage Armor.
