Hey /k/, I'm thinking of moving to Turkana to take a lucrative starship maintenance position, but the recent skirmishes between the rebels and the empire in that sector have me worried. Does anyone know what the local weapon laws are like? I want to be able to keep my DL-44 in case anyone starts going door to door.
Rebellion's definition of control is as fluid and shifty as their doctrine.
Space under Imperial control is going to have capital warships all over it on a regular basis, with a guarantee that there's an Imperial-class Star Destroyer a very short jump away.
A system under Rebel control can expect, at best, that there's an MC-class vessel in a system that's sort-of near by, projecting force via fighter squadrons.
Very different definition of control. I'll bet 7/10 that Turkana has regular Imperial incursions that local Rebel forces don't directly contest.
I thought only lightsabers were the only weapons that were really prohibited?
OP, you'll be fine so long as you don't go blasting at an Imperial stormtroopers or get caught smuggling rebels.
If you did, you'd have a lot more to worry about than some illegal weapons charge. I heard that a few farmers got blown away on tatooine for just buying a few droids that happened to escape from a rebel cruiser.
As a workaround, if you accept a mission or two as a bounty hunter, there are usually looser restrictions on them. I know this guy named Greedo and he was allowed to open carry on imperial worlds. All he did was take blue milk run jobs to catch smugglers or bail jumpers that he knew he'd never find.
Nah dog. Dunno what rimward shithole you live in, but if there's any real concentration of Imps, if you need to ask, the answer is no.
With that said, anyone who has any grasp on subtlety can avoid Imperial attention, but yeah. As the letter of the law goes, anything remotely questionable will be assumed illegal by the guys who found it, and that's really all it takes to get you shifted to Kessel for the rest of your life.
>I heard that a few farmers got blown away on tatooine for just buying a few droids that happened to escape from a rebel cruiser.
Rebel shill detected. What the press doesn't tell you is that they bought the droids from JAWAS. I don't think a Jawa has ever sold anything they didn't steal. The Jawas probably stole the droids from the cruisers. I doubt a droid is smart enough to escape on its own.
They knew they were committing a crime and then they resisted when the stormtroopers came and asked.
Yeah, but that's life. Just don't go taking it out on the nerds talking nerdy /k/. Two wrongs don't make a right and all that jazz.
Holonet, why the flying fuck aren't the TIE Avenger and Defender ready yet? Rebellion is beating the fuck out of Imperial logistics because we can't match their force projection without hyperspace capable small craft.
At least bring back the fucking Venators, with their 400+ carrying capacity and Victory-class firepower. The Star Destroyer Mafia is what's killing the New Order.
Pic related, fucking sexy as hell. Why we keep our best pilots in gimped deathtraps is beyond me.
More delicious advanced TIE. Four lasers, 8 concussion missiles, shields, hyperdrive, more speed and agility than anything in either arsenal...
Why the fierfek do we need seven kinds of star dreadnaught when we could be giving the 181st shit like this?
All the cutbacks because the liberals in the council (don't know why the fuck anyone listens to them) keep complaining about military spending.
Obviously they've never blasted rebel scum before.
Must be that cunt Leia Organa; bet you a whole night of Randoni Yellow Plagues she's as traitor as her dad.
Fierfek. I want the prodigal sons of Seinar Fleet Systems. Feking Avenger and Defender. Pic related, the later of the two. Feking four lasers, two ions, eight missiles, handling and thrust for days and days... 300,000 cred a pop, so I guess I see where that'd be restrictive, but fuck, we don't need to give them to every single suicidal TIE jockey to make a dent. Give 'em to the vets and let them hunt the ragtag Headhunter squadrons who are making nightmares for our shipping fleets.
Anyone know if these are illegal anywhere other than the Outer Rim?
I find it hilarious that the old republic, at half strength taking into account the cis split, managed to mass produce effective fighters and bombers with shields and hyperdrives, but the empire, with a galaxy full of resources under it's control, claims it's too expensive to add hyperdrives and shields to it's craft, yet they produce those giant star destroyers and super star destroyers and death stars up the wazoo
>Living in the core.
Oooh, don't tell me, you can't afford to move? Poor little city scum.
Even the fucking Tatooine cantina rats know that core worlds are for visiting, not living on.
I can confirm as a former Stormtrooper. I'm really just keen with staying neutral now, I got shook up after the battle on Hoth and was discharged with some mental something or other diagnosis.
All this to say, the politicians really don't know what its like to blast another man. To hear their insides cook from your plasma discharges. To see people crushed by AT-ATs.
And God was it cold, so damn cold! The only way to stay warm was in battle and to keep moving forward, over those dead bodies.
But I digress, on the bright side, I was able to smuggle out (with the help of some friends from my days on Coruscant) about 3 dozen E-11 rifles.
The problem is abundance of manpower. Back in the old days, they only had clone troopers (if you believe those stories) so they had to make each one as effective as possible.
Nowadays with the thousands of worlds, the empire has billions of soldiers. They'd rather be able to throw them out into space in something instead of just having half their army sitting around, waiting for ships to be built.
Agreed, you'd think the emperor would just bring in the guards and waste those guys. We all know the emperor love's his military.
Just last week I had some dude in all black armor attacking some old wise-looking fucker in the middle of the god damn street, WITH GOD DAMN SWORDS OF LIGHT, that's some military spending right there man.
Not to mention the black guards with the black cape crusader whose armor was LITERALLY DEFLECTING the sword, which was rebounding and slicing droids in fucking two.
I'm a local metal worker in my town and the only metal that i know that can do that is Phrik, and that shit is god damn expensive, the only time i got to work with it was in a small scale test with a old scrap piece in college, and it cost the school nearly its entire budget to get. That's military spending for you
Why dont you guys have a Tenloss rifle? these things are highly illegal but shit, nobody is going to mess with you if you have one
And whatever happened to the XG1 Star Wing? Shit rocked forty concussion missiles. FORTY, plus two lasers and two ions. If that can't make rebel squadrons hunting for freighters shit their flight suits, nothing can, but the XG1s languish in auxillary fleets when they could be escorting convoys and chasing down flighty Rebel capital ships.
Your're joking right?
I used to serve in the empire. I even made it to an officer in my time there. And I can say that's some complete bullshit
you think i'm some scruffy nerf herder to pay 800 credits for that?
Storm Trooper armor protects nothing except maybe morale. They cut cost until it was nothing more than a thin Duralium shell.
You could knock a storm trooper out by throwing rocks at him if you came close enough.
I don't need a rifle that can disintegrate a stormie in one shot when a plain jane E-11 can kill the same stormie with much less spectacle, and do it 50 times on the same power cell.
Can I interest you in a older piece? its called a DC-17m, It is a interchangeable system with 3 different unique attachments, I happened to get this one from my uncle, who got it from a good friend of his after he died in battle. it also comes with the DC-15s
>Not being glorious A280 master race
Mid-Rim tier pleb.
800 credits is the best I can do, smuggling them out was a pain in the ass and I had to pay my old buddies for the help, so 800 is what I'm offering, the Empire pays 1200 credits to have 1 made, so its a good deal!
Star Destroyer Mafia detected. Bet you say the same shit about Avenger and Defender, and wonder why there's a shortage on veteran Imperial fighter pilots and successful supply runs.
Go suck Tarkin's cock some more, why don't you?
>Implying I don't EE-3.
It was just an example. A280 is pretty good, but not my style. Step it up, ner vod.
What I wanna know is: Why are they fucking white? They aren't even fit for fighting in arctic climates with their underpowered climate control units. And in any other terrain it makes no goddamn sense.
This is just one of the reasons that keep me from leaving this hellhole rock and signing up. If the empire puts no thought in something like this, what else don't they care about?
Except liberal Imperial Senators say pacifism over order, because 'muh diversity'.
The lack of quality small craft and effective force projecion in the Imperial Navy is the result of an idiotic doctrine that relies on fear instead of an effective force.
Imperial pilot here from the modified frigate Frogger, forward deployed to outpost D34. Will be getting off duty from standby alert in a few hours hopefully, would anyone be interested in combat pics from operations out in the javin sector?
>Turkana is in rebel hands (for now at least)
It's better to keep one on you and keep it concealed. Rebels are terrible at rule of law, I heard they made a pirate or smuggler a general. When the chips are down, rebels won't care about citizens and the Hutts will rule the planet.
Say what you will about the Imperials, but they KNEW how to keep law and order on a planet.
>I know, if I only attack one part of the argument, I'll look cool without attacking all of it!
Agree with you on the A-wing bit, Star Wings would make bad interceptors, which is why they should be guarding our convoys against roving squadrons of ramshackle snubfighters and upgunned light freighters.
We should have TIE Avengers and TIE Defenders squaring off against the elite Rebel pilots flying advanced fighter designs. It'd work a lot better than stuffing everyone into flying coffins and hoping that the enemy gets scared.
Meh, I don't do politics. If you wanna be left alone, live in the mid or outer rim. The core worlds are far too densely populated to be allowed total freedom.
I don't agree with everything the Emperor does, but he keeps order for the vast majority of Imperial citizens far better than the Republic ever did, or the Rebels ever could.
never bothered me to be honest. go to the lower levels of any trade hub or bigger space port and you're bound to find an underpaid official who'll check that 22-B box in your citizen's file for maybe 4000 C-Bills. And easy as that, you can buy any non-military blaster on the market and register it.
>Rogue and Renegade Squadrons don't exist.
>Neither Death Star was ever destroyed.
>The majority of ISDs killed by Rebel forces did not suffer from Trench Run Disease.
Star Destroyer Mafia, pls go.
Enjoy your fragile phallus of a blaster.
>inb4 "b-but the trigger has like 35 pounds of pull"
What are you, a youngling?
>Advocating a weapon made for droids.
I bet you're one of those kiddos who just sprays and hopes to kill by blast and shrapnel. Storm Troopers would rape you so fucking hard.
You're sitting around Yavin when this guy comes up and slaps your Mon Cal cruiser in the ass, what do you do?
>Neither Death Star was ever destroyed
>tax the shit out of everyone to build huge space station
>all your buddies in the military industrial complex are set for life and can each buy a small world for retirement
>space stations mysteriously destroyed
>with the same trick
>oh no we have to keep spending more, the rebels are winning
Yavin IV and Endor were inside jobs.
They declared war, blockaded a planet and slaughtered tens of thousands of unarmed civilians during the occupation for absolutely no reason except trading disputes, and then they tried to hide all of this from the Republic, and you think they were fighting for freedom?
Haven't you seen the footage the Naboo guerrillas that fled from the palace released? They escaped through the countryside and everywhere they went Clankers were razing farmhouses and bombing villages.
And it's also pointless. 99.9 percent of TIE pilots are never going to see an X-Wing, and if you want to go chasing rebel fleets, you don't do it in snub fighters. The reason they decked out fighters in the old days is because they couldn't crank out enough ships and clones to fly them. The the CIS ran off with the financial and industrial sectors, but the old republic had no shortage of civvies and technicians to keep them flying. It's an outdated doctrine of caring whether the ship makes it back or not. You can either spend 200 man hours fixing a faulty shield generator on an X-Wing, or crank out 10 TIE's and train 10 idiots to fly circles around border worlds and not wet themselves when they see a blip on the sensors.
Lol, get off the Holonet for a bit and join the real world. Though honestly, I wouldn't put it past Tarkin... Were it not for the fact that Vader and Palpatine pull HIS strings, and they were all for it.
See, that'd never have happened if we'd decided not to produce the Bellator, Assertor, or one of the other tens of dreadnaught classes, and spent the money and resources on TIE Avengers for our veteran pilots.
While we're at it, retain Venator-class SDs so we can swarm baseline TIEs while we swarm baseline TIES.
Oh don't listen to Rebel prop on that. The entire Rebel Fleet was shooting at the thing and that A Wing was loaded down with enough explosives to penetrate the shields on a standard Star Destroyer.
The big issue here is that all navigation controls were on an extended, exposed, lightly armored bridge instead of in the center of the hull. Imperial craft design is kinda stupid, maybe they wouldn't be getting their asses kicked so hard by a bunch of backwater smugglers if they knew how to build a good warship.
It was doing it really well, 90% of the shielding was still intact, but from the released footage on galaxyleak it looks like they were trying to reroute shielding to the bridge right as the A Wing slammed into it.
Warships were fine, fighter compliments were insufficient, even for the swarm tactics TIEs were built for. 72 craft from each ISD is chump change, the old Venators could carry over 400, and that's including big fuckers like the ARC-170. But instead of retaining force projection, we tossed them out for the Victory-class, which carries all of two squadrons. TWO. Fucking bullshit.
Hell yes, I love mine. Sits right beside me in my cockpit wherever I go. They really dont deserve the bad rap they get for being unreliable. If you purge the gas and blast chambers every once in a while, itll take care of you whenever you need it.
Do you do bulk discounts? How well do they do against, say, Scout Trooper armor? Would they stand up to the humidity of a forest moon? And finally, can indigenous tribal bears use them?
>It was doing it really well
It would have been, if Imperial Fighter Wings were equipped to handle vastly superior Rebel fightercraft. They had neither the craft nor the numbers that they needed, all because Tarkin and his buddies thought we needed a dozen dreadnought classes.
If you plan on buying all 3 dozen of them, then yes. E-11's will go through just about any modern armor, especially if you hit within the same area. E-11s can do well in just about any environment, and how big are these bears you speak of?
That's because of Imperial strategy of using overwhelming numbers of low cost fighters against the enemy.
When the rebels see a cloud of tie fighters, not even the best pilot can beat it, and it becomes a Pyrrhic victory for the empire as they can stand to loose the fighters while the rebels cannot
Say that to his face and not on the holonet and see what happens fucker
Unless Rogue Squadron just shoots them all down, or any other competent Rebel fighter wing.
It doesn't matter if you have five times the ships they do if theirs are faster, stronger, and can shoot down a TIE in a single salvo while it takes multiple passes for a TIE to even get through the shielding, let alone blow through the armor.
I heard the absolute worst story about a bounty hunter using one of these, defeated by a lowly smuggler.
The reload time is simply unacceptable, and it cost that guy hislife. Don't even get me started on the horror stories about them exploding when hit by blaster fire.
I think you misunderstood, Thrawn hardly had any contact with the Imperial senate, he made his name while in the Chiss expeditionary defense force.
And muh diversity is wrong, hes a humanoid, and Chiss are descendants of humans.
Rogue squadron is one of the best in the rebel fleet dont get me wrong, but if they loose a pilot, it's a bad day for them, while if the Empire looses ten pilots it's an average day for them.
In the long run rogue squadron stands to loose
Except that's not what actually happened. The TIE swarm alone worked wonders against backwater PDFs flying Headhunters at best. It didn't faze seasoned rebel pilots, nor did it stop their advanced fighters from running wild over ISDs and large installations.
There are two things that could have been done. For one, the Venator-class Star Destroyer could have been retained as a heavy carrier. It was removed from service because the smaller Victory-class matched its firepower, but the VSD's massive ventral hanger would have meshed perfectly with Imperial fighter doctrine. For two, advanced TIE designs could have been put into meaningful production and supplied to veteran TIE outfits. Even if only the cream of the crop would be flying Avengers or Defenders, those elite pilots would still outnumber their Rebel counterparts, while having craft that would easily outclass those they would be flying against. Instead, TIE vets flew the same deathtraps they came up in; this kills the veteran pilot.
Was the B Wing really needed over the Y? Seemed like the Y wing was perfectly serviceable
Good enough mate, that's why I ain't joining the Imperial Navy, Instead im going to Stormtrooper Officer School. I've head that If you get commissioned with the 501'st right out of the school, you get killed really quickly
It was slow and outdated bomber craft.
The new B wings fulilled the fighter bomber role of the Y wing while still being fast and well armed enough to defend itself.
You wouldnt believe the attrition rate of the Y wings. Any fucker high on force can sneak up from behind and blast them away.
Plus the Y wings needed 2 pilots to function in what seems to be just as a ion cannon gunner. A weapon not even capable of destroying a TIE Fighter and from the looks of Hololeak videos, arent even seen to work at all.
Moving onto imperial fleet doctrine. Which smart ass general thought that a giant moon could fulfill the function of what is probably 20 other imperial star fleets?
The rebels have at their best ONE fleet, their heavy cruisers all dependent on that squid world. Surely spending money to build more star destroyers or even 10 death star cannons would be a far better use of resources?
Yeah, but they started to run out of clone officers (since they are one of the last legions to use Jango's template and therefore that template is a fairly low cloning priority).
They've allowed some non clone officers, granted they survive
Just a note OP, if you do decide to make the move, don't but any of that outer planet imported blaster gas that is prevalent in the markets in the area. It's shit, I bought 4 charges of it and my blaster was dirty as hell and had 3 FTB, and my accuracy went down to POG stormtrooper level. it costs less credits but it's not worth it IMO.
agreed, what you do with the E-11s is your business so you don't have to worry about me asking too many questions. I'll be in an old beat up republic era freighter. We'll do the deal clean, and because I like ya, I can even hook you up with some other associates of mine.
Why didnt the empire simply replicate the droid fighters in the clone wars into their tie fighter system?
Surely it would fill the role of cannon fodder and in the long term prove far less costly to maintain and quicker to construct? Allowing for more starship crews or contruction of advanced tie fighters.
Stanging Nar Shadda man. They're slimey slugs, for sure, but I've never had as much fun as I've had in Hutt Space.
Just avoid any females charging less than 200 cred if you value your genitals, and any kind of debt if you value your freedom
>living in the star wars universe
>giving a fuck about weapon laws
pick one and only one, if the empire wants to shoot you they are going to. Might as well give yourself a fighting chance to shoot your way back to your ship and skip out. After all its not like you cant just go work on Nar Shadda as a maintenance tech. And there they pay cold hard credits and the hutts keep out the Imperial elements, not to mention they don't give a flying droyk what you do.
Because having enough ships to police all the systems under the dominion of the Empire matters more than having batshit crazy ships that do the same job that is currently being done cheaper.
There's a lot of money to be made in Imperial space, doing both what the Imps do and don't want you to do.
Knowing the laws makes keeping a low profile easier, if only for the sake of expediency.
Hey guys I found this rust red droid. It claims to be a simple protocol droid that is thousands of years old with an odd speech pattern. What should I do?
sidenote, I've caught it eying my rifle a couple times now
Well they are illegal but you can get them. They just ship 'em in as servants with concealed slave implants. The market in twi'lek slave girls in the lower levels of corescant is not impossible to find. Then you "hire" them and they don't have a choice in the matter. Easy. That said if you get caught its usually more of a slap on the wrist if its Imperal forces. They'll probably just confiscate you property to pass around the barracks before they deport her ass.
So cut out one of the dozen classes of dreadnought and battlecruiser we've got kicking around. I get that the Tarkin doctrine saves the Imperial Navy from a lot of small, preventable deployments, but eschewing decent fightercraft because it's too Rebel and not compensatory is foolish.
you don't have to pay clones...
They also were not dealing with a force the size of today's modern Imperial navy. Old republic fleets were not as large and did not have to perform the system security role that they do now. Simple tie fighters are very effective when employed en masse. Especially when we are talking about the pacification of pirates and interdicting smugglers. Besides its not like shields on a fighter give you more than a few extra hits anyway. It may sound harsh on the pilots but its better to have more fighters to police a system than to worry about loosing the odd pilot.
Found it in a derelict space station a few cycles back.
It speaks every language I can think of plus several I don't recognize.
Now it seems to have an odd infatuation with everything trying to fight me. It claimed an ugnaught was looking for a good blasting.
>large as a blaster carbine
remind me why these are a useful weapon? granted if you are charging repeating blaster emplacements accept to substitute since you can disintegrate the shit out of whatever you point it at. But aside from that it is limited in its utility. Give me a dl-44 or an e-11 any day of the week.
they couldn't take on the rebel interceptors in a turning fight and were only really useful to lob missiles at long range. Since capital ships can do that and these things cost as much as a squadron of TIE's they decided that they weren't worth it anymore. Make a good commerce raider though. It's got the firepower and the shields to take on most transports and commercial fighter type craft.
I don't think that anyone here is debating the effectiveness of TIE swarms on ragtag resistance cells and backwater militias. Where the TIE swarm fails is against the Rogue Squadrons, the Renegade Squadrons, and the Lightspeed Panthers, who rove abroad, striking against objectives throughout space and scything through Fighter and Interceptor grunts like Wookies in a nerfhouse. Numbers alone aren't enough to counter those assets; they can't reach far enough, stay long enough, or hit hard enough, and they're too fragile to allow an efficient cultivation of veteran pilots.
Hey, if it's looking to protect you I'd let it.
I'd check it's programming and functions, as well as it's memory. You can always reprogram it if you're having troubles.
He might even tell you something interesting if he hasn't had a memory wipe or restraining bolt installed.
Wasn't there a whole load of these guys found on Mustafar a while back? I thought the ensuing bloodbath scrapped them all.
Implying ass loads of hyper capable ships with wings of fighters, bombers and entire army groups cant project force.
Protip: a single imperial star destroyer can pacify an entire system by itself.
Oh sure, but it can't do any of it without letting everyone in system know about it. Very inefficient to use an entire SDBG to snuff some Headhunters flying off a refitted bulk cruiser when a single squadron of TIE Avengers cpuld do the same job with much more subtlety.
They can, but you can't divert an entire SDBG for every squadron of snubfighters in old pirate bases. That's how the rebellion does it; their attacks are too numerous, small, and farflung to send even a single ISD after every cell.
Could just as easily be attributed to highly skilled Rebel pilots in capable craft cutting through those screens, torping their targets to shit, and jumping for it before swarms of shit craft with shit pilots can overwhelm them.
Ask him what his primary function is. If he says anything questionable get the fuck away mang. Those things are bad news.
I'm pulling up some archives on the HK line, and "HK-47" doesn't show up at all. It has to be between the HK-27 and HK-50, which give a lot of leeway from the start of Mandalorian Wars to the end of the Jedi Civil War. Anything that old and not on records has to be one tough sonofabitch that won't hesitate in removing you.
better shields, with the cost of more maintenance and not as many on board fighters and ground forces. SD's are much more well rounded vessels. And if one SD cant do it send more.
Better fighters. The complement of an MC80 can attack your ISD from three jumps away. 36 great fighters vs 72 shitbirds is a mismatch, and even if you beat that attack, you still haven't found their mothership.
Now everything is a meatbag? What is wrong with this thing, also it referenced a man(?) named Revan. Old master perhaps?
I want to dump it but having an assassin droid could prove quite useful.
I'll leave it as is, I feel like an attempted memory wipe would prove... problematic for me.
>mfw it just agreed
I mean you should be fine, honestly most Stormtroopers aren't concerned with your personal weapon as long as you aren't some rebel shill.
The rebels on the other hand want you to sacrifice for their cause, so if you aren't with them they probably don't want you having a weapon.
Just go with yes, you can have it.
well then the obvious solution it to give each star destroyer a squadron of advanced fighters for countering these threats and keeping the cheaper fighters for system patrol and general use.
Pictures as promised, these were taken from the first battle of D-34
I would agree with you entirely.
In addition, one could bring the Venator class back into service, and attach one to each SDBG. 400+ extra craft, along with advanced TIE squadrons, certainly help aleviate TRD.
As you can see, the rebel and pirate scum were not match for superior Imperial equipment and training
While yes I agree with the notion that the empire not having hyper capable fighters is a mistake. I think the main reason they have so much trouble is more a matter of pilot training. I mean in theory a TIE can run rings around most rebel fighters.
Last picture. We took minimal losses in the engagement whilst destroying many rebel Y-Wing and X-Wing starfighters, as well as a few Mugaari pirates. We even captured some rebel officers that foolishly flew into the battle zone on a shuttle!
Turkana is a shitty place to do business Anon-kun. I was aboard a privet owned C-90 Corvet we got ambushed by one of those Tartan patrol cruisers. We werent even armed and after a brief encounter with some stormtroppers we were let off with a warming. Fuckin shoot kill and ask questions later imperial scum.
In theory yeah, but it's not just the hyperdrives. No missiles or shields is crippling; TIEs can't engage outside of laser range, and they have no regenerative protection. A rebel pilot can take dozens of hits so long as they're spaced out enough for his shields to recharge. Even the best TIE pilot has the armor to take two, maybe three laser hits before he's space junk.
>bitching about role-playing in a star wars thread
get over yourself
While im here does anyone know anything about this model of droid? Im a foreman in a maintenance droid pool in cloud city and several ugnaughts brought it to my attention. Im kinda getting creeped out by it.
Anybody know where I can get armor like this?
I lost mine.
Its gone, I was only out for a second to find the Baron or Lobot and when i got to my office it left and took a schematic of the city. Firefek im screwed.
DO NOT activate it UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES for ANY REASON WHATSOEVER. You'll die a horrible death. Oh, and probably 99% of all droids everywhere will go Skynet on the biological species of the galaxy.
Meh I live on Narshadda and they pretty much leave well enough alone unless you piss one off. Working for them can be rough if you mess up but if you are worried about that it isnt like they are the only ones with any work around.
Now its the empires apparently fuck wheres Lando this place is going to hell...thanks lobot you mute fucking nerf herder.
So In my service as a stormtrooper I came across this guy once or twice, he's a bounty hunter Lord Vader had recruited to accompany us on missions. He fought unlike any man I've ever seen.
I've heard his name mentioned around by some of my associates, they say his name is Boba Fett. You guys ever heard of him or met him?
I have a friend of yours, it's called DC-15A.
Welp, time to get the barbecued Bantha and some fried calamari and turn to the News Channel, cause this is gonna be a bloodbath
Someone's circuits seems to be fried, you'll soon be in the recycling bin tinboy
>ton of Imps
>a rampaging killbot
>rumor of Skywalker and Vader
>an angry Wookiee
No worries I understood what you meant. anyways in my time as a Stormtrooper I served on multiple worlds, with my service ending after the battle of Hoth. Once on when I was deployed on Kashyyyk Boba Fett was hired to help our battalion break through the Wookie defense line.
The guy just danced circles around those giant creatures. he even managed to get on ones back and slit its throat with a blade he had hidden in his boot. The guy is hardcore.
Statement: Organics such as yourself need not be concerned for the pointless squabbles your kind seem to have over meaningless depths of space, or the self-imposed 'laws' that you seem to cling to so very, very much. If I were you, I would take it upon myself to end my own pointless existance with that DL-44, as outdated and as illegal as it is, and do the rest of the galaxy a favor. You would be doing your kind a great service!
Hey guys, my lightsaber has been acting up and barely works for 10 seconds. Anyone recommend a new one that isn't shitty?
Hey anon, apparently some guy named Han Zimmer shot him first before he could defend himself. This is why we have stand our space laws in place so things like this doesn't happen.
Blastech and SoroSub are the only 2 companies that make half decent E-11 parts, but all the SoroSub blasters ended up inRebel hands and they have since stopped making them. So unless you can get a small weapons maker to custom build you stuff your only real option looks like Blastech.
All I have is my ion blaster and a restrainer bolt. I just looked up the droid in a nearby droid database terminal. Holowan Laboratories IG model assasin droid. This things armed to the tooth, fletchet launcher, built in blaster cannons, a concussion missle launcher, vibro blades. stun cord electron nets. Yeah.....Im going to see if I can catch up with fett and ask about his rates.....
Witty Declaration: The DL-44 is by far and large one of the worst blaster pistols I have ever come across, and it does not surprise me that you, being an organic, are quite fond of them. Suffice it to say that in combat you would not last long against any other current generation blaster, because after all, you are an organic, prone to sentimentality. It is quite laughable. What is more humorous to me is that you think you can survive even a minute fraction of a second in my presence, a meatbag fighting the inevitable processing by that which was created solely to do the Master's bidding.
Ive reached the Slave I, theres still time.
Anyone else here kill a jedi 1v1 no surprise attacks?
I did once. Fired scatterguns from both hands. The idiot must've thought i was carrying blasters. Pellets ripped thru em.
My buddies don't believe me.
I know, I was being facetious.
Holonet, I just bought this S-5 off a salty spacer on the Jubilee Wheel for 550 cred. Did I do good?
Jedi-wave me on joining the imperial stormtroopers /k/. It's been a while since I have a good job, I have little to nothing holding me back here. I've also been giving scouttroopers a thought.
pop pop pop and watch some rebels drop.
Our dark lord Darth Vader does not have problems with civilians the likes of you owning a laser rifle or laser shotgun or even a blaster pistor but here is one thing you civilians do not get...
Imperial planets that are under our leaders control all have their own laws regarding ownership of weapons.
For any of you that are on tight restrictive planets, news flash you peasents your on a planet that took either pre-war British political view point on weapons or pre-war japan political view point on weapons.
Now even though the planets are under our imperial laws and order the planets have few rights to run their own legislation laws and one of those just so happens to be weapon based related laws.
One of the planets that are close to our imperial circle has very very very few laws regarding on weapons the only exceptions is that you don't fuck with us. We won't blow up your original home planet with your families or blow your body into smithereens.
Now the rebels are the ones that are wanting a tight weapons ban and hord it all to themselfs.
Oh you did not know that?
Well it is because they do not want to let anyone know because those pesky rebels know that if any civilians knew their agenda on a full weapons ban then they would lose alot of their supporters and to keep this under control those rebels frame us stormtroopers as the bad guys and the imperial force as wanting to ban all weapons when truly it is the rebels that wants the weapons to be banned.
Don't believe me? Then go visit one of our popular imperial planets than go visit those pesky rebel owned planets and then come back and tell me which is better.
Trust me I know you would not really want to live on a rebel planet nor a republic planet where even a pre-war firearm is considered offensive now would you?
All hail Darth Vader
> Pic related it is me in my stormtrooper suit
The pays good free housing, food, medical, and dental.
The down side is shity officers but you rotate through them fast enough. Also since the big E bit it they have been letting non humans in
tell me about it, things have gone crazy here since word of the Emp. turning into space dust got out. I still can't find myself trusting a group of terrorists and more force extremists, heck we already had it bad enough with the Emperor and his big black force dildo raiding our system every now and then.
>tfw toydarians are starting to show their ugly mugs here again.
sometimes I miss the bigger stormie presence
I sorta felt bad for him, guy seemed like he was selling the thing to try and score some deathsticks or spice. Hang around the wheel for a while and you see a bunch of those types.
Thanks, I'll take it to a Verpine I know and have it worked over. I'm thinking he could work up an HE projectile for the dart launcher while he's at it. I like having options like that.
How would this work out with Star Wars technology?
Yeah you would just have to reload more and at long range account for drop in bullet trajectory and wind. You would also have the advantage that your postion would not be instantly revealed when you opened fire.
oh goodie, then just take off the legs and replace those arms for multiple turrets.
Oh but now all of a sudden it doesn't sound so cool anymore does it?
fucking techno unions I swear to god
Just tell me some were you are and what the situation is like and whats left of us might be able to liberate you.
Nope. Blasters rely on particle beams, which create a huge amount of blast and shrapnel. This can be seen in the Detention Center scene in ANH, when an unarmored Imperial Navy trooper gets killed by a near-miss. That's one thing that separates the shiny whites from your average grunt; they're impervious to blast and shrapnel from blaster weaponry.
Also, blaster ammo is light as fuck. E-11s fire 500 shots per power pack. 2200 bolts is a minimalistic loadout.
So it can turn around like a spacewalking astronaut without expending fuel. Mostly, because giant stompy robots are cool
>implying the existence of space fighters at all isn't just as contrived and for the sake of coolness
Yeah, I've done the bounty hunting gig on the small scale for a while now, and I've had several guys who bought CIS SBDs (the big fucking blue ones) as body guards. Those fuckers are TOUGH. HE projectile should help out with shit like that, along with anything else that's significantly hardier than your average humanoid.
NO MIXING WITH NON HUMANS
Holonet /k/ and holonet /pol/ are friends, we both want a pure Human and chiss galaxy!!!
(please understand this is done for comedic effect, i never go on /pol/ but I always see these kinds of posts on /k/)
Hell's teeth, you're a tougher man than I. However, if you want some extra firepower, here's what you do. You get an RT-97C, I don't care how, and chop the barrel down about halfway. You then weld the collimator nut back on, and drill a 3mm hole into the gas injector, then tap it. Now hook up a 3 bar can of trifluorazine carbonate and crank the power output to about 82%. Open the valve, fire, and laugh maniacally. It will scare the living shit out of anyone within three clicks and can put holes in armoured hullplates.
All they're good for is current events. I have no idea where those fuckers pull info from, but if shit's going down, /pol/ knows what's up before just about anyone else on the internet.
Hey guys, my aunt is selling a Tuskan rifle (pic related) and is offering to sell it to me for 50 credits and a starter capacitor for a condensation unit. I've shot it before and it's pretty fun but I really want to save up for a DL 44. Should I go for it anyway?
Also, raiders aren't genetically compatible with humans, right? I-I'm asking for a friend...
If you can lug one of those around all day, more power to you; the heaviest blaster I own is a DH-X. Can't imagine needing heavier.
That shit's my speeder gun. I would recommend only using it when you must if you take my advice. The reason the barrels shorter is to reduce the power output. I blew up the first one I made after three shots because of that. It was putting holes in 3m of solid rock though.
Naw, she already checked it out, its just a generic hunting blaster restocked and barreled with, like, 4 capacitors sandnigger rigged along the barrel. Kicks like a mule and eats cells like a motherfucker.
I have 10 Z-6 rotary cannons for sale, looking for 35,000 credits will meet anywhere in the outer rim.
Har har, very funny mister "I get paid for this". Those things get destroyed once they're de-commissioned. Let me guess, you want a ten grand deposit now? You'll never fucking show up again.
i bet you never even stepped out of a shuttle bay in that cushy space station job you had faggot. man you probably just scanned freight, all the soldiers in that task force sent to both were reeducated as per vader's orders when they failed to capture the rebel command structure.
go imperial navy bro
I placed into a tie interceptor squadron, our unit was based on Kile two. fuck the ground pounders man, they don't even train the troopers to lead shots with turbo laser batteries anymore, I saw trigger-happy stormtroopers spraying and praying like one of those tusken savages at a y-wing on a bomb run, a whole squad just dumping their weapons, they shot down two of my wing mates. go navy bro you'll see shit that'll blow your mind out there. my captain shot down the rebel terrorist antilles on Kile two, he got set up with a palatial estate on this nice forest world, guys got six wives (all human of course ;) ) and his isn't over 40
hell we shot down at least 4 of those wannabes on sullust, for some damned reason they always survive the crash with an intact radio though and the fucking ground pounders never move in for a capture
Back in the old days, we killed em like it was nothing. Only a handful are actually good enough to really defend themselves. Most can be taken out by simply firing at them simultaneously with a buddy.
Speaking of dead jedi, anyone got any clone wars gore? I accidently deleted my file.
