Spacetroopers were stormtroopers equipped to operate in Zero-G environments. They wore a variant of the stormtrooper armor fitted with a rebreather pack. They wielded both an E-11 blaster rifle and a specialized heavy blaster. Spacetroopers were notably used to patrol the outside of the Death Star, a moon-sized battle station.
Behind the scenesEdit
Two spacetroopers appeared unidentified in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. They were both played by ILM's Joe Johnston using a split screen technique because there was only one suit available on the day of filming, the other having been stolen. They were identified as Spacetroopers at Celebration Anaheim.
