In the Outer Rim, even the secure and well protected supply lines of the Empire are not safe from the predations of pirates and raiders. Despite the Empire’s best efforts, such brigands are occasionally able to knock over a supply convoy and make off with its high quality wares to hock on thousands of black markets. One of the most prized pieces of this stolen stock is the specialized armor worn by Imperial scout troopers.
Scout Trooper Armor

The armor worn by scout troopers is very similar in basic design to the plastoid laminate armor of the average stormtrooper. However, it does vary in several important ways. First, scout trooper armor is slightly lighter and provides less coverage; and, second, the former is fitted with an incredibly advanced suite of advanced optics, range finders, and firing solution computers. These modifications make scout troopers a deadly combination of speed, stealth, and accuracy when deployed to the field. They also makes the armor quite popular with assassins and wetworkers.
Like standard laminate armor, scout trooper armor is fitted over a body glove, and can be tailored to protect against exposure in a similar manner. The optics in the helmet act as if the armor had an enhanced optics suite attachment added to it, though this does not count against the armor’s HP limit. Furthermore, the wearer of scout trooper armor gains an additional Bonus die when using the Aim action when equipped with rifle-type weapons.
