Dubbed the Sith trooper, the new uniform sports all-red armor plates with a matching red and black blaster. Also decorating the armor is a slightly more textured pattern, although the overall design is reminiscent of past clone troopers from films such as “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith.”
Star Wars has also announced a toy version of the new character design, which hints at a host of new red and black weapons for the troopers.

However, the new design won’t be completely replacing the storm troopers of old.
