Now with the garrison secured and fully operational the Empire knew that they needed new equipemant and uniforms to help the troops work better in these harsh enviroments so testing was done on a number of uniforms. So beagn the the trials to see what uniform would suite the troops in these harsh condition which would serve the Empire better.
