Range troopers were a specialized variant of the Galactic Empire's stormtroopers. Range troopers were deployed by the Galactic Empire as a stormtrooper variant. They were equipped with helmets similar in design to both the Imperial combat assault tank pilot's and coastal defender stormtrooper's helmets, heavy armor with fur and a chestplate much like that of cold weather assault stormtroopers, and were armed with E-10R blaster rifles. They were also equipped with magnetic gription boots which allowed sure footing atop fast-moving vehicles. The troopers were some of the toughest in the Imperial Military and viewed other forces as "softer" amateurs.
Behind the scenes
The magnetic effect of their boots was achieved by the filmmakers using a complicated wire rig for the actors' feet.
