Stormtroopers have been instrumental in a large number of Imperial operations and continue to serve the Empire with devotion and loyalty. While the best of these Elite warriors are chosen to serve as Royal Guards others are chosen to serve as Veteran Stormtroopers. Veteran Stormtroopers are amongst the best the Stormtrooper corps has to offer and have served for a number of years. To distinguish between the two types of trooper, a red stripe edged in gold is added to the Veteran's right bicep armour plate on formal occasions. The stripe is approximately 20mm wide and it encircles the armour plate. Once selected, the trooper undergoes additional training in a number of fields to increase his flexibility and potency.
Veteran Stormtroopers have spent many years in their armour and wear it like an additional layer of skin, making them surprisingly agile. This ability combined with their marksmanship and coolness makes them deadly opponents in a firefight.
Veteran squads are made up of nine men and a sergeant. One member of the squad also carriers Light Repeater, whilst another carriers explosives when required. Veterans are usually assigned as bodyguards for VIPs or to critical Imperial installations. Veteran squads also undertake special or critical missions for the Empire.
