Feared throughout the galaxy, stormtroopers are elite shock troops deployed in support of both ground forces and the Imperial fleet. They are responsible for policing Imperial outposts and territories, accountable for sustaining Imperial control in even the most dangerous sectors. This can be a challenging and often deadly assignment for the most reliable shock troop squadrons. Tough port cities such as Mos Eisley have high populations of outlaws, criminals, smugglers and other anti-Imperial types who create a typically chaotic atmosphere.
In order to suppress brawls and uprisings and to facilitate the supervision of areas with high criminal activity, the Empire began issuing crowd control thruster packs to many of its impact troopers stationed in these areas. The packs themselves are made up of two large thrusters which extend outward for flight. Once in the air, a trooper can simply hover or travel up to speeds of 200km per hour. Dual hand levers provide acceleration as well as directional and weapons control. Mounted on the bolstered arms is a heavy blaster module, a grappling claw used for massive lifting and prisoner hauling, and a supercharged taser which sends out a shockwave useful for repulsing and immobilizing victims.
These packs give the crowd control troopers a distinctive advantage during situations where they are outnumbered: two or three skilled troopers can effectively round up over fifty people with relative ease once take to the air. The pack's incredible maneuverability and high speed make prisoner escape on foot virtually impossible, while its relatively quiet thrust has helped it to become a stealth vehicle sometimes used by the Imperial Espionage Division.
