Imperial Discipline Blog: Not How the Force Work – Displacement


We’re just a few months away from the release of the first new vehicles since Legion’s launch, which means now is as good a time as ever to talk about a rule that trips a lot of people up: displacement, or the act of a vehicle running over some poor, poor troopers.

So what exactly happens when some menial troopers are in the way of your towering AT-ST or, for whatever reason you decided to fly it, your Airspeeder? Can they be in the way of your Airspeeder in the first place?

Let’s take a look.

Who is Involved in Displacement?

Only three types of units will be involved in displacement, and only in two specific cases:

Ground Vehicles moving through or into Trooper Units


Repulsor Vehicles ending a compulsory move on Trooper Units

In case you aren’t intimately aware with Legion’s vehicle reference language, here are those vehicles disambiguated:

  • Ground Vehicles
    • AT-ST (Imperial)
    • AT-RT (Rebel)
    • Occupier Combat Assault Tank* (Imperial)
  • Repulsor Vehicles
    • 74-Z Speeder Bikes (Imperial)
    • T-47 Airspeeder (Rebel)
    • X-34 Landspeeder* (Rebel)
