The Republic's experiments with a new generation of heavy blaster rifles have proven successful, sparking a galaxy-wide trend towards larger, more powerful and more versatile armaments. It takes a great deal of strength and training, however, to wield these war machines, so they're rarely used outside the military. Republic engineers have also worked overtime fashioning new defensive gear for the Republic's most elite soldiers, armor suits that provide maximum protection and flexibility in multiple environments.
The Trooper is a heavy weapons expert. All Troopers are skilled in the use of blaster rifles, as well as powerful grenade launchers capable of firing explosive rounds and volleys of incendiary mortars. Their rifles can be loaded with many types of ammunition, allowing the Trooper to tailor his gun's performance for the needs of any battle.
Troopers who become Vanguards continue using blaster rifles, but also carry powerful shield generators that help them survive tough fights.
Troopers who become Commandos learn to use assault cannons, massive underslung weapons capable of firing powerful incendiary rounds and other heavy ammunition. Some Commandos may specialize in battlefield medicine and become effective combat medics.
