The imperial Stormtrooper is the elite assault force of the Galactic Empire in Star Wars, which belongs to the imperial army. The Imperial stormtroopers were loyal only to the Galactic Emperor Palpatine and were under his direct command. Like Imperial Star Destroyers, the stormtroopers showed the world the supreme power and will of the Imperial Emperor. They wear white armor and black gloves. Their ruthless visual impression gives people a sense of power.
Although the imperial Stormtrooper is not the legal standing regular army of the Empire, but only a part of the Imperial military, it can give people the illusion of standing regular army. Although as a special elite force subordinate to the Imperial Army, the imperial Stormtrooper often served in the imperial fleet, which became a symbol and typical impression of the imperial army.
