Trooper class revealed for The Old Republic

The fourth Star Wars: The Old Republic class has been revealed today, and it's the Republic Trooper:

"Not all heroes carry Lightsabers. Some just have the will to fight.

For decades, the armed forces of the Galactic Republic defended their civilization against the seemingly unstoppable Sith Empire. Despite countless setbacks, the men and women of the Republic military never backed down until the Senate ordered them to do so. These brave souls remain ready and willing to lay their lives on the line today."

The story is too old to be commented.

Im sure Lucas wouldnt let them mess with the SW story too much, but the Republic is not supposed to have an army at all. Maybe they can get away with having some troops, but not an army.

why cant the republic have an army? dont forget this is thousands of years before the trilogys happen. The old republic had an army in Kotor, and this is a sequel to the Kotor games.

Tbh, I dunno what's up with the Republic Army. They're barely mentioned throughout the franchise. I don't think it's out of line to have strike teams and the like. Can't fight a war with absolutely no ground forces.
