Bomb squad stormtroopers, commonly called bombtroopers, were an elite class of Imperial stormtroopers trained in the activation and deactivation of explosive charges. The bombtroopers were trained to disarm explosive devices varying from anti-tank mines to primitive spring traps. The bombtroopers were also considered superior to bomb-disposal droids due to their training, which was sufficient enough to recover an explosive device intact, which allowed for Imperial Intelligence to study it after recovery. Their armor was similar to the Snowtrooper and Galactic Marine.
