The GST double zero R three "Stormtrooper" was 
designed by Luthien Armor Works from an old starleague 
design in an attempt to produce a mech that could tear up 
larger targets from close range.

The project received large criticisms in its early 
development.  Some said that the AC/20 was not powerful 
enough to be used as a stand alone weapon.  that 
multiple medium lasers would be more effective.  
Replacing the AC/20 with its more versatile LBX 
counterpart silenced these criticisms.  The next criticism 
was the lack of energy weapons.  A major argument was 
that the hunchback, a classic design, was far superior to 
the prototype stormtrooper.  both in cost effectivness and 
total damage.  with the advent of double heatsinks the 
hunchback no longer suffered from overheating and was 
now able to use its energy weapons freely. The invention 
and use of the sword silenced the criticisms stirring up a 
patriotic feeling towards the mech.  The Stormtrooper's 
biggest advantage over the Hunchback is its speed, 
allowing it to close to short range more quickly.  
Also, because it has less armor than the hunchback, the 
added speed makes it a much more difficult target to hit.

In 3059 the Stormtrooper was first deployed behind the 
frontlines in a fierce battle behind a line of firesupport 
mechs.  When the fire support mechs ran low on 
ammunition they broke formation and the Stormtroopers 
ran forward swinging their swords menacingly.  The enemy 
attempted hold their position but when the stormtroopers 
entered firing range the hail of AC/20 ammo forced them 
to turn tail and flee.  Those who couldnt flee were cut 
down by the Stormtrooper's blades.
