Storm Troopers are the epitome of the European infantry; elite, professional units working in small well-drilled fire-teams. Despite the European focus on their mechanized forces, their infantry are not exactly incapable. A Storm Trooper unit tends to operate as a trio; they are primarily armed with light machine guns, specifically an adapted version of the German MG42 that is no longer requires mounting. This modification is accomplished by reducing the length of the barrel, which results in the loss of one cooling vent. The weight of such weaponry is still considerable, and combined with the weight of its ammunition and their body armor does restrict mobility. The rise of biological warfare has necessitated an adaption to the regular headgear, the original Storm Trooper half-helm has since been combined with a Kevlar gas mask, the full facial nature of their current helmets means their sight capabilities have been sacrificed for survivability. All candidates of the Storm Trooper corps must pass a strength and stamina exam to ensure that they are fit enough to carry and operate their equipment in the field, once in the service there are also regular tests on each Trooper's maintenance of his weapon.
The Storm Troopers have become regular part of the European army, with facilities and scouts all across Europe and its theaters of war. The core was founded after an incident early in the conflict with the Soviets, when an entire regiment's weapon shipment was replaced with MG42's, this was a stage in the war where Europe did not have their current mechanized capabilities and they were reliant on entrenched infantry fending off the advancing Soviet tide, operating light machine guns was a rare specialization. The incident forced the regiment to use its unrequested shipment of LMG's, however they operated so successfully with their new-found equipment that it became regularly used. The regiment's effectiveness was then mimicked across the alliance with the headquarters of the Storm Trooper corps being erected in Berlin, near the arms factory of the newly adopted armament.
