First off there is the standard armour:enter image description here

Notice the flat shoulder pads, next we have

Storm trooper flat shoulder

Notice the larger shoulder pad.

Also through the movie I noticed the same larger shoulder pad coloured in both Black at one point and Red at one point.

We also have Phasmas crazy chrome armour.

What is the ranking order for these armour types? Who commands who?

  • From what I remember: Trooper, Sergeant and Captain not sure what other ranks eist though – Thomas Dec 27 '15 at 9:07

  • Out of cannon but in the games (Jedi outcast, and battlefront) the yellow shoulder pad is worn by heavy weapons units. It could be another of the minor armour changes that are seen in the films, (Yellow shoulders on Tattoene mask on Hoth and a visor on Endor). – PStag Jan 16 '16 at 13:35

  • @Thomas Trooper, Sergeant, Captain, Commander, then General is what I remember from TCW series, and there would be little reason to change this. – JDSweetBeat Mar 16 '16 at 13:30
