Stormtroopers, Imperial infantry

Infantry were an essential component in any power's armed forces. They often made up the bulk of invasion forces, and were used to defend key installations from the enemy. These soldiers were commonly on foot, although they would be transported to and from battles by vehicles such as dropships.

Infantry would normally carry a blaster rifle or some other firearm, and sometimes grenades and a sidearm (normally a blaster pistol).

Vehicles and tactics that were designed to counter infantry were referred to as "anti-infantry." The All Terrain Recon Transport (or AT-RT) was an anti-infantry vehicle.[1]


Throughout galactic history numerous armies have equipped their infantry with specially designed combat armor. Examples of this include Imperial stormtroopers and Republic clone troopers.
