|~ Obi Wan Kenobi to Luke Skywalker about Stormtroopers|
A Stormtrooper was a member of the elite shock troops in the Imperial Army, placed under the Stormtrooper Corps, the land-based forces of the Galactic Empire's Imperial Army. They were particularly distinguished by their loyalty to Emperor Sheev Palpatine, the founder of the Empire, and were reputedly incapable of betraying either him or the Imperial regime.

However, the armor is fairly resistant to firearms, requiring large caliber rounds or exotic ammunition to penetrate.) and Small Building level against blasters (Undersuit and armor plating are made of a composite material which can disperse the energy of one blaster bolt hit which can result in the wearer being knocked out but still alive)
