At the creation of Commander Kaiden Sareno's Imperial Army and Navy, two Legions were formed, the Legion of Black Death (L.B.D), and the Legion of White Life (L.W.L). The Legions served as twin fighting forces with standard troopers serving as the bulk of the forces. Each Legion consisted of 25,000 troops, almost the equivalent to a standard legion/brigade in the Grand Army of the Republic. The breakdown of units in each legion was different for both, but the main count of soldiers was 35,000 Stormtroopers and 15,000 Clone Troopers.
The uniform of each solider in the Legion of Black Death was greatly consistant with the gear carried by Imperial stormtroopers and Republic/Imperial Clone troopers save differences in coloration of their armor and markings on their armor. The Legion of Black Death wore jet black Stormtrooper armor that was modified highly. Specifications for each set of armor were never published to the public and are held classified as military secerts.
The markings on the Legion of Black Death's armor were greatly different from any other Legion in current duty at the time. Their leg armor had twin white Lightning bolts arcing down them while the chestplate they wore had a bright red flame sketched onto it. On the back of each hand small versions of the flame were also sketched.
Each symbol had a meaning that directed itself to how to Legion operated. The twin lightning bolts stood for each Legion, how they both worked together to accomplish their objective. The small flames on their hands symbolized how they burned their way through the galaxy and through the battlefield. The larger flame on the chestplate stood for the hope they could give the allies, while also standing for the flame of destruction of their enemies.
The soliders inside the Legion carried standard issue E-11 blaster rifles and SE-14r sidearms, basic issue weaponary for Imperial stormtroopers. However each squad withen the legion carried specialized squads with more advanced technology for harder missions. Some squads formed together advanced sniper units which would/could inflitrate an enemie base and wreck havoc. As well as the snipers, the demolition crews could blow anything up they could get their hands on.
