This thread is about all things Imperial. In Solo, the Imperial Army was featured. I could be mistaken but in the movies, this could be the first time that the imperial Army has been featured. Usually we would see Stormtroopers fighting for the Empire. We could say that the stormtroopers are like Spaces Marines who serve on Imperial Naval ships and Imperial Naval bases. While the Imperial Army existed to take out enemy forces and occupy territory. They conquered new territories while the stormtroopers dealt with Rebels within the former Republic, now Empire.
