As the title says, I don't understand how Han Solo could put on the trooper's heavy armor when him and Luke are on the Death Star. I mean, as a smuggler shouldn't he only be able to wear medium armor? I guess maybe he was lucky he found a set of adaptive armor?

Best. Post. Ever. You know I've been wondering the same thing.

He talked the GM into letting him pick up Heavy Armor Familiarity as part of the character background.

Alternately, Palpatine ordered all stormtrooper armor to be Adaptive.
As if I have anything worth putting in a signature...

Same goes for Luke! He was only a Jedi Knight who hadn't chosen his Advanced Class! And how'd he get a blaster, eh?

Imperial Trooper Armor is Adaptive. He was just a CE holder.

Well I sure hope the new Star Wars movies will make more sense than the old ones. Seems the more you dig into this, the old films totally fall apart. Disney should release digitally revised editions sorting this out.
