The basic soldiers of the Galactic Empire were known as Stormtroopers. These armored warriors always wore white armor into battle and carried blaster guns of varying types. However, like any good army, the Imperial Army had specialized troops for specific battles. Among them, the Snowtroopers who were assigned to cold-weather assaults in inhospitable elements.
