Annoying word: troops

Another one for my list of annoying words: troops, to mean several soldiers, which is also what troop means. An individual soldier is a trooper, not a troop. So shouldn’t it be trooper is singular, and troopers is plural; or, if troops has to mean plural, then troop should be singular, not plural too!
