This seems so anachronistic.

Like putting an 18th century cannon on a modern destroyer.

It means Stormtroopers or other wish sayed shock infantry.

I got that but word etymologies have slightly different meanings in translations. Here for example it seems (I've not actually checked though) that the dutch have used a different word for it than other germanic language groups like Norway and Germany has who use the word Sturm or Storm for this function while the duch used a word with a slightly different traditional meaning which has an equivalent word in norwegian and (I presume) German.
