If you're a Star Wars fan who loves learning the histories of ships, weapons, and other items in the fictional galaxy far, far away, then this is the video you’re looking for. Fans won’t want to miss YouTuber EC Henry’s latest video exploring one of the most regularly seen weapons in the original trilogy: the stormtroopers’ E-11 blaster.

Henry’s epic five-minute analysis offers a closer look at the elements of this Imperial weapon as well as where it came from. He spends time discussing its predecessors, the E-10 and E-10R, and its variants like the E-11D. Henry even goes into how the E-11 evolved later on in the fictional universe into what we see being used by the First Order in the sequel trilogy.

It’s a fun deep dive into one aspect of the Star Wars canon, showing images of the weapon in action and how elements of it work with great animations.

This is far from Henry's first video exploring something like this. He has more videos looking at different aspects of Star Wars and Star Trek on his YouTube channel.
