Storm Commandos were the special forces of the Galactic Empire's Stormtrooper Corps and trained to deal with extreme combat situations. They were equipped with silver scout trooper armor and carried E-11 blaster rifles. Some Storm Commandos were members of the elite 501st Legion, Darth Vader's personal stormtrooper legion.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Storm Commandos first appeared in the new Star Wars canon in Star Wars: Galactic Defense, a tower defense game developed by DeNA Co., Ltd.[1] that was released on October 30, 2014[2] and shut down on April 28, 2016.[1] They were originally created for Galaxy Guide 5: Return of the Jedi, a 1990 Star Wars Legends supplement written by Michael Stern for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.[3]

In Galactic Defense, Storm Commandos were a type of enemy unit in the "Light Side" missions, appearing in original trilogy–themed[4] levels recreating the Battle of Tatooine. In these levels, players utilized defense towers and Rebel forces, such as Honor Guards, to defend against waves of Imperial units;[5] successfully destroying a Storm Commando awarded the player with "Scrap," a point standard used to upgrade or purchase towers.[1] While Galactic Defense was canon, its actual gameplay was not; consequently, the presence of Storm Commandos on Tatooine is considered non-canon.[6]
