They were shock troopers meant to strike with speed and accuracy, putting down insurrections and maintaining order on the farflung worlds of the Empire. Stormtroopers served both the ground-based armies of Palpatine's forces, and the space-based Imperial starfleet. Stormtrooper training stressed complete indoctrination in the tenets of the New Order, and individuals would obey their officers without question, without regard to the rights of others or even to their own safety. Stormtroopers abandoned individuality in exchange for their loyalty. They are completely encased in a white armored spacesuit shell, and are armed with blaster pistols or blaster rifles. Their helmets contain comlinks for long-range communications. Officers were denoted with colored shoulder pauldrons. Specific environments called for specially trained and equipped stormtroopers, such as the snowtroopers that besieged the ice world of Hoth and the lightly-armored scout troopers that patrolled the forests of Endor. From the Expanded Universe Stormtroopers were totally loyal to the Empire and cannot be bribed, seduced or blackmailed. Stormtrooper unit organization was separate to that of the Imperial Army and Navy, although this elite unit supported both arms of the Imperial Military. They followed similar organization patterns: squads, platoons, companies, battalions, regiments, and battlegroups (called legions). A stormtrooper battalion had 820 men. The health of stormtroopers was the responsibility of the Naval Biological group. Specialized stormtrooper units included aquatic assault stormtroopers trained to operate in marine environments (seatroopers). They featured modified scout armor, with breathing tanks, flippers, and a helmet-mounted spotlight. They were assigned to aquatic garrisons, and were trained to operate patrol vehicles such as waveskimmers and wavespeeders. Blackhole stormtroopers were a special branch of Imperial stormtrooper answering directly to the Imperial Intelligence agent Blackhole. Blackhole stormtroopers wore the same armor as regular stormtroopers, except that it was painted black and coated in a stygian-polymer substance that baffled sensor readings. The cold assault stormtroopers, or Blizzard Force snowtroopers, wore specially modified armor for cold weather environments. It included a more powerful heating unit, and an airtight fabric oversuit. To facilitate breathing, a breather hood covered the faceplate and fed into the suit liner. Desert stormtroopers, or sandtroopers, were identical to normal stormtroopers except for their specialized training and slightly modified armor. This elite corps emphasized independent-thinking more than standard stormtrooper units. Stormtrooper scout units were usually assigned to garrison posts. Their mission profiles often equipped them with speeder bikes; as such these men were usually called biker scouts. A scout's armor is more flexible and lighter than a standard trooper's. While standard stormtrooper armor provides some protection against hard vacuum, the zero-G stormtroopers, or spacetrooper, division trained for exclusive space combat. They wore massive suits of armor, powered by servomotors. Each suit functioned as a miniature spacecraft, with propulsion systems, sensor systems, and weapons. In full gear, a spacetrooper stood over two meters tall and was twice as wide as an unarmored soldier. In standard deployment, spacetroopers struck from assault shuttles that carried them to a target. The troopers then launched, using their weapons to secure and board the vessel. A spacetrooper's armor featured concussion grenades, mini-proton torpedo launchers, a blaster cannon, and laser-cutters. Radiation zone assault troops, or radtroopers, were a little known division of elite stormtroopers trained to handle irradiated combat zones. Their armor featured a lead-polymer substrate and a silvery reflective finish. Other specialized Imperial trooper divisions included flying airtroopers, tunneling underminers, and magma troopers who crushed revolts on volcanic mining worlds. Following the collapse of the Empire at Endor, stormtroopers were an increasingly rare sight in the galaxy. It was not until Grand Admiral Thrawn procured a working set of Spaarti cloning cylinders that the Imperial ranks of stormtroopers began to be replenished. Behind the Scenes The stormtroopers can trace similar thematic origins as the faceless android police officers of Lucas' first feature, THX-1138. Even their processed voices sound hauntingly similar. The faceless ranks of unending soldiers are meant to underscore the inhuman nature of the Empire. This is vividly contrasted by the Alliance ranks, that aren't clad in face concealing armor, and instead bear a human face. The original stormtrooper design came out of Ralph McQuarrie's illustrations. Costume designer John Mollo took McQuarrie's concepts and puzzled together how the pieces would fit based on his knowledge of medieval armor.Brief Prop and Costume History First seen in Star Wars - A New Hope in 1977, The Stormtrooper Armour design was originally conceived by Ralph McQuarrie in 1975. Helmets and Armor were all fabricated by Andrew Ainsworth at Shepperton Design Studios in Twickenham near London. All helmets and armor were made from vacuum formed plastic, either ABS or HDPE. Detailing and Armor assembly were by John Mollo's costuming department.For The Empire Strikes Back the original sets from the previous film were re-used. For Return of the Jedi they created new Helmets and Armour by casting a set from the original Movie.

While the 18-piece armored shell offers limited protection from blaster fire, it also serves as a weapon of terror. The bone-white armor fits over a black temperature-control body glove. Built-in helmet comlinks supplemented by belt-mounted hand-held units ensure that stormtroopers are always in touch with their superiors. Standardized utility belts offer ammunition for blaster sidearms, and helpful tools such as grappling hooks and cable. Stormtrooper armor also serves as a limited space suit for protection against hard vacuum. The Empire maintained a number of variant armor styles to fit different mission profiles. The armor of desert terrain units, cold assault divisions and scout squadrons are all slightly different. Luke Skywalker and Han Solo took advantage of the faceless stormtrooper uniform when infiltrating the Death Star prior to the Battle of Yavin. They were able to surreptitiously enter the battle station's detention block to free a captive Princess Leia Organa. From the Expanded Universe The standard trooper helmet features automatic polarized lenses. Their utility belts feature concentrated rations, emergency batteries, a miniature thermal detonator and a spare comlink. Stormtrooper helmets are equipped with a Multi-Frequency Targeting and Acquisition System (MFTAS). This allows them to see in low-light and obscured battle conditions. Behind the Scenes In between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, the design of the stormtrooper costume was subtly modified to take advantage of more advanced molding techniques. The new designs were cheaper to mass-produce and a more comfortable fit for the extras and stunt performers who had to wear them.

Working to a frenetic deadline, AA and a very small team worked around the clock in their design studio from February - May 1976 churning out helmets and armor that was later to be used in the film, being shot at nearby EMI Elstree and Shepperton Studios. Initially, the Stormtrooper Armor was due to be fabricated in-house at Elstree (most probably in fiberglass), although the had been having problems with their vac-forming machine so this process was out-sourced to SDS. Due to its boat-making business, Shepperton Design Studio’s was fortunate in that it had a HUGE vac-forming table, which was over 4 meters long. This was perfect for the trooper armor as it allowed a complete set of armor to be made from a single pull – a great time saver when there's 56 sets to make! Elstree techniciansAt that time, the huge success of Star Wars had not been anticipated and, according to Ainsworth, the making of the costumes was very much a process of trial and error. As mentioned earlier, the initial fifty "Stunt" helmets produced, were made from a khaki-green coloured Polyethylene - aka Polythene (HDPE) material that was being used in the workshop at that time to produce fish ponds!. The material was then spray-painted white, although the finish was less than satisfactory, as the almost-oily HDPE material didn’t take the paint very well.So AA was asked to produce the helmets for the shooting which was to start just a few weeks away, initially on-location for the Tattooine shots filmed in Tunisia, North Africa. SO,the very first armor ever to produced was for sandtroopers.The helmet itself is very interesting as its asymmetric in appearance. For instance, if you look at the right tube (as you're looking at the helmet) it is quite significantly different in size and overall shape than the left. Many reproductions have ignored this and "sanitised" its appearance and incorrectly given it a more symmetrical look. As mentioned elsewhere the "hero" look is quite different from the "Stunt" with a lowered frown, bubble lenses and three sets of teeth either side of the frown. In addition, the Hero only has one screw on the central ear section, not two. The ABS production helmets and all the Armor were 1.5mm and made of a specific ABS mix which had a higher ratio of rubber to styrene, making them very strong (though slightly duller). As an indication of this strength, AA's sporting canoes were made from just 3mm.Details on helmets such as the Stormtrooper’s seem to have come from from whatever they could lay their hands on. The front "Mic Tips" have the words "HOVI MIX pa2" written on the side of them. Even now its not clear whether these were actually rheostat knobs (possibly military?), air inlet valves or microphone condenser tips. The Pa appears to refer to atmospheric pressure, measured in Pascals. Note its possible some of the helmets had the real mic tips, however the majority of the Stunt helmets had resin casts of them.The whole project from beginning to end was probably no more than a few months, and yet the designs have become some of the most recognizable film props of the 20th Century.
