Jumptroopers, also known as Imperial Jump Troopers, were specialized stormtroopers utilized by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. Jumptroopers were equipped with jump packs that allowed them to hover.
Overview and equipmentEdit
Jumptroopers were a variant of the Galactic Empire's stormtroopers, that used tactics similar to their clone predecessors to bound over walls to attack enemy turrets directly. Jumptroopers were each equipped with a jump pack that could suspend them in the air. They carried burst shields and RT-97C heavy blaster rifles. Jumptroopers were suited with the standard stormtrooper armor, but could instead wear a specialized armor that included a mechanism attached to two tubes plugged into the helmet, similar to a TIE pilot's control box.
Behind the scenesEdit
Jumptroopers first appeared in the 1993 video game Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back as airtroopers. On April 25, 2014 the Star Wars Expanded Universe, including Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, was declared non-canon and rebranded as Legends. Imperial Jump Troopers were later introduced into canon in the 2014 mobile game Star Wars: Commander, appearing visually similar to the Imperial jumptroopers seen in the 2007 Legends video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. In the 2015 video game Star Wars Battlefront, jumptroopers wore generic stormtrooper armor with matching jump packs. Imperial Jump Troopers could be trained in Star Wars: Commander with a Level 8 Barracks.
