Radtrooper armor is classified as a military secret, so possession of such armor is punishable by life imprisonment or execution. Those few sets of armor that have reached the black market are believed to have sold for over 50,000 credits. It is believed that this highly specialized armor costs the Empire over 25,000 credits per suit.
