Imperial shock troopers were high-class stormtroopers[1] pulled from the Stormtrooper Corps of the Galactic Empire.[3] They served as elite frontline forces of the Empire, and also as bodyguards for Emperor Palpatine himself.[1] They were the successors to the clone shock troopers who were part of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.[2]

The shock troopers wore stormtrooper armor with distinctive red markings on the helmet, spaulders, shin guards, and utility belts which maintained extreme resistance to small-arms blaster fire.[4] However, some of them still wore the armor model of their Clone Wars-era predecessors well into the Galactic Civil War.[3] Often being deployed in pairs, the stormtrooper variant served mainly as a support unit, taking vantage points, occasionally driving tanks and suppressing enemies with their heavy firepower while lesser infantry moved in for the kill. The arsenal at their disposal included a DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle[4] or a powerful rocket launcher.[3]
