Description: Incinerator Trooper
Prefix: TK
Detachment: First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment
Context: The Force Unleashed
The Imperial Incinerator Trooper is an elite unit specially equipped for crowd pacification. Easily distinguished by the red flash on their armor. Their armor is exceptionally heat-resistant, able to withstand high temperatures. Incinerator Troopers are equipped with powerful plasma rifles (A.K.A. flamethrowers) that can burn through virtually any material. This elite unit is used to disperse unruly populations and overwhelm troublesome combatants.


The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

FISD Defines two additional, optional levels of costuming excellence: Expert Infantryman and Centurion. In the page below, requirements for Expert Infantryman are listed in blue. Centurion requirements are in red. Please visit the FISD web site for a full description of these standards.

For 501st membership only the requirements in black need to be met.
