Death Troopers were an elite variant of the Galactic Empire's Stormtroopers. Only the best of the best candidates from the empire's Stormtrooper training programme were selected to become Death Troopers. They had to satisfy not only strict physical requirements but also strict ideological requirements and even beyond that, they had to go through brutal training programmes plus classified medical procedures & augmentations which made them "more than human". Said training programme and medical procedures did result in many fatalities but those that made it through them became some of the most dangerous and dedicated soldiers in the imperial military. Death Troopers were assigned to protect important assets within Imperial Intelligence (such as facilities and important personnel of the Advanced Weapons Research Division and Tarkin Initiative). The Death Trooper programme name comes from an Advanced Weapons Research Division project to revive nectoric tissue which resulted in the creation of uncontrollable undead Stormtroopers.

Should be overall at least of this level and on the level of the Clone Troopers and ARC Troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic). Small Building level with blasters (The SE-14r light repeating blaster, being a military grade sidearm, packs this kind of firepower and the E-11D blaster rifle, being a standard military carbine, packs this kind of firepower while the DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle is even more powerful).
