Description: Sith troopers were a stormtrooper variant that served the Final Order during its war against the Resistance in their ultimate push towards galactic conquest. Named after the Sith, an ancient order of Force-users devoted to the dark side of the Force, these troopers drew power and inspiration from such order’s dark legacy and were the next evolution of Imperial/First Order stormtroopers. They wore red-colored stormtrooper armor and wielded a ST-W48 blaster.
The mysterious and powerful Sith troopers were set to go into battle in the wake of Kylo Ren’s assassination of Supreme Leader Snoke, leading the First Order to seem invincible; however, in the wake of Kylo Ren’s battle with Rey on Kef Bir, Darth Sidious and his Final Order took direct control of the Sith Trooper forces, alongside the rest of the First Order when its de facto leader, Allegiant General Enric Pryde, pledged loyalty to the Galactic Emperor. Under the Final Order, Sith troopers were organized into legions of 5000 men following ancient customs. Such legions were identified numerically, but also by a given name of a Sith Lord in antiquity, bearing significance known only to Sith Eternal cultists. The vast majority of Sith Troopers were eliminated during the Battle of Exegol.
Under the Final Order, the Sith trooper and Sith jet trooper forces were grouped into legions of 5,000 soldiers, with each battalion named after a past Sith title that held significance within the Sith Eternal. The 3rd Legion was named after the Sith Revan, the 5th Legion was named after Andeddu, the 17th Legion was named after Tanis, the 26th Legion was named after Tenebrous, the 39th Legion was named after Phobos, and the 44th Legion was named after the Sith Desolous. A First Order battalion, the 105th Battalion, consisted of Sith troopers and Sith Jet troopers.
