COASTAL DEFENDER STORMTROOPERS (SHORETROOPERS)
Shoretroopers were a specialised variant of the Galactic Empire's stormtroopers, which were trained and equipped for combat in tropical environments. Shoretroopers were mainly stationed on Scarif at the top secret imperial security complex. They were well trained and could operate effectively as sergeants, which meant they were able to command a small group of regular stormtroopers. The position they served was often temporary, as this depended on their skills, qualifications and demand. Across the galaxy shoretroopers were very scarce, because the conditions suited for their specialities were much less frequent than that for the other stormtroopers. While stationed on Scarif, shoretroopers commonly used the E-11 blaster rifle and the E-22 blaster rifle.
There were three different ranks of shoretroopers which all had unique armour markings.
Regular shoretroopers - sand coloured armour, red band around right arm, white stripe around left shoulder guard.
Squad leaders - sand blue strip along top of their chest plates onto top of shoulders guards.
Captains - almost all of chest plates coloured blue, sand coloured right shoulder guard, sand-blue coloured left shoulder guard, small plate of armour on left side.
Shoretroopers were also known to use different pieces of armour and weapon configurations based on the conditions of where they served.
