"Rebels to your left. Use infrared scanners. Open fire!"
―A swamptrooper[src]

Swamptroopers were a segment of the scout trooper division of the Stormtrooper Corps.

CharacteristicsEdit

Swamp trooper

A swamptrooper from early in the Galactic Civil War, with armor similar to that of a scout trooper.

Trained to operate for extended periods in marshy environments, these specialized soldiers were deployed to dense, swamp theaters and wore upgraded, green armor that allowed for easier operations in humid and poisonous environments. While training aided the swamp troopers in navigating the swamps, a sealed suit and body glove, custom rebreather, emergency flotation package, and enhanced viewfinder provided a greater chance of survival in the often dangerous swamps in which they operated. Each swamptrooper was armed with the Golan Arms FC-1 flechette launcher, except for the squad leaders, who carried Imperial Heavy Repeaters.[2]

HistoryEdit

The early versions of swamptrooper armor closely resembled the armor of the Galactic Republic's clone scout troopers, and they also resembled forest-style camouflage versions of scout troopers. In the years leading up to the Battle of Hoth, some swamptroopers were forced to equip themselves with previously used stormtrooper scout armor, with a green tint.[3]

Their armor became more and more specialized and by the time of the assault on the Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4, it bore little, if any, resemblance to that of scout troopers.[1]
