    Scout Troopers are trained for reconnaissance and patrol missions. They are usually assigned to planetary garrison posts. At a typical garrison they perform their duties in tandem with AT-STs. Scout Troopers rely upon speeder bikes and other high-speed personal transports to patrol perimeters, perform reconnaissance and scout enemy locations. Unlike most other stormtrooper units, Scout Troopers are equipped for high manoeuvrability and long periods without support to perform objectives far from resupply by Imperial Forces. They are conditioned to work with partners wherever possible. And due to this, their personal transports are stocked with a survival kit and extra equipment. Scout Troopers do not rely on heavy weapons, instead they rely on their small hold-out blasters.

    With their gear Scout Troopers can reach and silently infiltrate almost any objective. These troopers can be employed for espionage, sabotage and infiltration of enemy outposts. Although trained to operate independently, Scout Troopers typically travel in squads, or lances, consisting of four troopers being led by a sergeant. During field operations, the lance generally separates into two elements. Standard assignments for a lance include exploration and patrol duty. Scout Troopers usually avoid conflict whenever possible, when they detect the enemy they prefer to contact the nearest Imperial force.
