- ―Stormtroopers facing New Republic Marines at the Battle of Mindor
New Republic Marines were the ship-to-ship assault and defense infantry of the New Republic Defense Fleet. 18,000 members of this infantry fought at the Battle of Mindor, which was a victory for them. New Republic Marines were armed with DH-17 blaster rifle. Though for close combat, the Marines equipped themselves with AKraB vibrodaggers, which could easily cut through stormtrooper armor.
