Grenadier troopers were a variant of the Galactic Empire's stormtroopers. Wearing similar armor to that of Cold assault stormtroopers, Vader's Special Force Troopers, and to a certain extent Darth Vader's Security Force, they were armed with plasma grenades and used large alloy shields for protection. Grenadier troopers were deployed during the Battle of Hoth, and later accompanied Darth Vader to Bespin's Cloud City during his attempt to capture Luke Skywalker.
