The Stun Baton is a handheld stunning melee weapon used by law enforcement, military and slavers. It had a power pack in the handle, which was used to activate the high-density cells that produced a stunning charge, making the weapon a little unwieldy. It required the user to physically touch or strike the target in order to immobilize them effectively. It is dated to be used back during the Jedi Civil War.
The baton had a setting switch so the user could set the exact severity of the shock. Though marketed as a humane crowd control weapon, a stun baton at full charge could kill. A weight inside the club could slide to one end or the other to alter the amount of physical damage inflicted with each swing. The rechargeable power cell lasted for three hours of continuous use.
The term droid tank or tank droid referred to any type of tank that operated without the assistance of a live crew. Much like droid starfighters, they were operated through the use of a droid brain; these could either be independently-controlled or governed by remote interface with a tactical computer; in this way they were much like ordinary battle droids and their starfighter counterparts. Tank droids were utilized throughout the history of the galaxy, from the Old Sith Wars to the Yuuzhan Vong War.
The Tank Droid Mark IV was a class of huge, bipedal and self-propelled droid tank. It was heavily armed, carrying a rocket launcher, blaster cannons, a grenade launcher and a flamethrower within its blocky chassis. They were primarily used for facility defense against intruders, overwhelming them with firepower.
Stormtroopers were the elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire. Like Imperial-class Star Destroyers and TIE fighters, stormtroopers served as ever present reminders of the absolute power of Emperor Palpatine. These faceless enforcers of the New Order were considered an extension of the Emperor’s will, and thus they often used efficient yet usually unreasonable tactics as a way to keep thousands of star systems throughout the galaxy in line. At the height of the Empire, stormtroopers had effectively become symbols of major authority. With few exceptions, they were distinguished from all other military units by their signature white armor.
The Imperial stormtroopers were the evolution of the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic. By the end of the Clone Wars in 19 BBY, the Galactic Republic was reorganized into the first Galactic Empire. As a result, the Grand Army was reformed into the Stormtrooper Corps and the clones were renamed “stormtroopers.”
Under the Empire, stormtroopers operated alongside Imperial Army and Navy units, and some were stationed on Naval ships where they served as marines. Although the Corps was overseen by Stormtrooper Command, a military agency that was independent from Imperial High Command, all stormtroopers ultimately answered to Emperor Palpatine with unconditional loyalty and subservience.
A lightsaber is a weapon also known as a laser sword.. A typical lightsaber is over a meter in length total, usually consisting of a metal hilt usually around 11 inches in length that projects a brightly-lit energy blade about three feet long though the length can usually be adjusted by a control on the side of the hilt. The lightsaber is the signature weapon of the Jedi Order and their Sith counterparts, both of whom can use them for close combat, or to deflect blaster bolts.
Lightsabers are hand-built as part of a Jedi’s or Sith’s training regimen. Each lightsaber is as unique as the one who built it, though some may bear resemblance to others like the ones used by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker. Lightsabers can be wielded either one-handed or two-handed. The Phantom Menace introduced a saber-staff essentially two lightsabers bound together at the pommels for Darth Maul, and Attack of the Clones introduced a lightsaber with a curved hilt, wielded by Darth Tyranus. Traditionally, there are 4 types of lightsabers: the shoto, which is used by Grand Master Yoda, the curved hilt, used by Count Dooku, the light club, which is used by Houks or other large Jedi, and the dual-phase lightsaber, which can extend to almost twice its length by alternating focus between two separate crystals inside.
