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[edit | edit source]
The magnetic effect of their boots was achieved by the filmmakers using a complicated wire rig for the actors' feet.
