Enviromentaly freindly troopers were designed to keep eco-nuts from complaining.
History: A long time ago, when the Empire came to power, Mormons complained that too much wildlife, forrest life, and plant life was harmed. So the Empire created an enviromentaly freindly soldier.
About: The enviromentaly freindly trooper carries an E-11 blaster rifle, EMP launcher, and a knife. The EMP launcher was used to take out droids and cause minimal damage to plant and forrest life. The E-11 blaster rifle was their back-up weapon. They only used it if ABSOLUTEY necessary. Their knife was used not for droids, but in case of a wild animal.
Most of the time, enviromentaly freindly troopers were stationed on Kashyyyk, Endor, Yavin, and other forrested planets. That's why their armor is green; to camoflauge themselves. (Sometimes they also wore brown to camoflauge themselves to trees.)
Their name is most oftenly associated with EVO troopers. However, they are two different soldiers and are NOT to be confused.
Quoting Exercitus Plasmator
I found the Mormon part unnecessary, we're religious, that's to be sure, but we aren't hippies...
I relize that you're not hippies, and I'm NOT making fun of you. I'm a Christian myself, so, I would never make fun of a fellow Christian group. But I just used Mormons because I couldn't think of anything else.
