Seatroopers were stormtroopers in the Stormtrooper Corps of the Galactic Empire that specialized in aquatic environments. They were equipped with various aquatic equipment including scuba backpacks, underwater propulsion jets, and flippers. Seatroopers saw action on the planet Mon Cala in 18 BBY. Other seatroopers were also stationed on the planet Lothal.
Equipment[edit | edit source]
Like standard stormtroopers, they wore white armor. They were also equipped with breathing tubes that were attached to a scuba backpack to their helmets and had underwater propulsion jets on their backs. They utilized fins on their boots and were equipped with DC-12U beam rifles and used OMS Devilfish subs.
History[edit | edit source]
In 18 BBY, seatroopers participated in the aftermath of the Battle of Dac City on Mon Cala after all surface cities were destroyed along with Imperial forces. At one point a few years prior to the Battle of Yavin, seatroopers on Lothal stood by during an aquatic training exercise for Imperial cadets.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Seatroopers first reappeared in canon in Jason Fry's 2015 junior novel Servants of the Empire: Rebel in the Ranks. The seatrooper was first pictured in Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 15, a 2018 comic authored by Charles Soule and penciled by Giuseppe Camuncoli.
