Why are they using Storm Troopers if The First Order is meant to be distinguishing itself from the Galactic Empire, shouldn't they have completely different foot soldiers?
Uh maybe because jj adumbs is a fucking retard, did you ever think about that? maybe he doesn't know the first fucking thing about star wars and just fucking said "durrr hey i guess the old movies did this so i guess this is what happens in da star wars hurrrr" And disney went "hurrr sure thanks for the money faggots" Literal jew fucking scum sucking shit.
Because the Empire has thousands of uniforms lying around after it waned. They just went and raiding some supply rooms, and then took out the filters and painted the guns white to stand out.
>Why are they using Storm Troopers
Stormtroopers are a normal type of infantry. It'd be odd if an army didn't have stormtroopers. As for their costume, they are different from the Empire's stormtroopers.
But all the stuff is newly designed. New armour, new TIEs, new Star Destroyers, new Death Star. They could have made their own stuff if they wanted, they just didn't because they wanted to be the new Empire and keep that continuity.
