Cold Weather Assault Stormtroopers, also known as Snowtroopers, were elite stormtroopers that were trained to fight rebel uprisings on planets with arctic climates and wore armor that was specialized to the climate extremes found on cold-weathered planets, like Hoth. In order to provide easy breathing in these cold atmospheres, Snowtroopers were given a breather hood enveloped in their helmets that attached to their uniform.

Equipment Edit

Each trooper was given terrain grip boots, a standard utility belt, high tension wire, grappling hooks, ion flares, additional blaster ammo, a survival kit, and ration packs. Snowtroopers were also given backpacks that had a heating unit that would supply to trooper with warm air inside their armor, and it also had an power cell, communication unit, and even a homing beacon, in case an Snowtrooper were to get lost or was left behind in combat.
