I have all 4 Editions of Traveller, along with GURPS Traveller, and 
worked on the playtesting of stuff for CT and T4
let me see what I can do about answering some of these questions.
I will reference to various sources by the following Abbreviations
M= Mercenary
S1= CT version of Striker
S2= Striker 2

I dont play Star Grunt myself, just Dirtside 2 and Full Thrust.
but have been playing Traveller since 1978, living a mile from the
old GDW helped.

Combat armor is closer to Imperial Stormtrooper armor from Star Wars
but with better protection, and more sensors/commo gear.

The figures that I have came with a ready made order of battle for
(had it here a few days ago, think I can find it???). They were either
with PGMPs or FGMPs. The OOB gave EVERYONE in the squad the

Standard Armarment as per Striker 2 will depend on the type of unit 
"All personnel stands are equipped with TL-14 Heavy Battle dress and
Grav Belts. Infantry and single figure stands are armed with 
FGMP-14's and 2 FGMP-15's in the weapons squad, along with TL-15
Portable Tac Missles."
"Support Infantry Stands are armed with TL-15 Portable Tac Missles 
and an integral TL-15 FGMP-15'

Support Stands such as Combat Engineers, Intel specialists. etc..
will generally be in Combat Armor, and armed with Gauss Rifles.
