First Order Stormtroopers were the military infantry units of the First Order. With their stark white armor, inspired by older designs utilized by the clone troopers of the Galactic Republic and the stormtroopers of the Galactic Empire, this new generation of stormtroopers was one of many symbols that the First Order derived from the fallen Empire. Armed with powerful weapons such as the F-11D blaster rifle and SE-44C blaster pistol, they served as the enforcers of the First Order much like their predecessors had done under the Empire. Conscripted as soldiers, they were trained since birth, given unit designations instead of names, and were subjected to years of propaganda to ensure their loyalty and obedience to the First Order and Supreme Leader Snoke.
Approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor, stormtroopers fought for the First Order in a conflict against the Resistance. By then they served under the command of Captain Phasma, a veteran officer and member of the First Order's commanding triumvirate along withGeneral Hux and Kylo Ren. The objective of Phasma's relentless training program was to produce the finest soldiers in the galaxy—promoting ruthlessness, yet also improvisation on the battlefield. As a result, the First Order stormtroopers were more dangerous than their Imperial precursors.
