History

Scout Trooper Biker SWB

A scout trooper riding a 74-Z speeder bike

Preceded by the clone scout troopers of theGalactic Republic, scout troopers provided excellent long-range fire for their stormtrooper counterparts.[3]

Scout troopers could be found aboard Darth Vader's personal fleet, Death Squadron, and whose priorities were to aid the Sith Lord in squashing out the Rebel Alliance along with its sympathisers and secret allies.[3]

Scout troopers notably protected the SLD-26 planetary shield generator which in turn protected the construction of the Death Star IIover the forest moon of Endor.[2]

Equipment

Equipped with light armor for greater mobility and optics in their helmets that allowed faster reaction times when piloting speeder bikes, scout troopers were expert marksmen, trained in reconnaissance and infiltration as well as additional independence and adaptability than most Imperial troops.[4] They also commonly utilized74-Z speeder bikes.[2] Also within their ranks were the Sniper troopers, specialists trained to use smoke grenades and the E-11s long-range blaster.[5]
