Years later another squad of death troopers served under Director Orson Krennic's command wielded as his personal weapon against the Rebel Alliance and the Erso family. They were present for the theft of the Death Star plans at the beginning of the Galactic Civil War. Death troopers were known to wield SE-14C blaster pistols, blaster rifles similar to the E-11, and long-range blaster rifles similar to the DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle. They also had C-25 fragmentation grenades. Those selected to command a squad were called Imperial Death Trooper Squad Leaders and wore a large black pauldron.
