Overview

Red Squadron is a unit working within the Greeop Defence Force (GDF) which continues in attempts to cleanse the Greeop Sector of all opposition. The group was a sub-unit of the Patriot Starfighter Group (formerly titled Patriot Battle Fleet (PBF)) until after the Rebel Squadrons defeat at the Battle of Blerthmore when it was replaced by the GDF and moved to Tarsonis.

History

Red Squadron was originally stationed aboard the Mon Calamari MC80a Star Cruiser Independence during the build up to the Battle of Yavin. Pilots who flew with the squadron included Lieutenant Hamo Blastwell, Keyan Farlander, Samuel Raider and Puck Naeco. Many members were transferred to Yavin Base and reassigned to different squadrons for the Death Star assault.

During the battle, Red Squadron gained the distinction of being the unit that brought down the Death Star's defenses as well as ultimately destroying the station itself. But the victory came at a price. Almost the entire squadron was destroyed, except for two X-wings flown by Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles.

After the subsequent Battles and Evacuation of Yavin after the Death Star was destroyed, the squadron operated as two groups. The first was Renegade Flight under Arhul Narra, the squadron leader, and the second was Rogue Flight under Luke Skywalker. The latter group, while operating under the name Red Squadron, carried out various operations.

As the Rogues became more autonomous, they became a group with no standing orders, ready any time or place for urgent missions that would arise.

For the Battle of Endor, Wedge Antilles changed the name of Rogue Squadron to Red Squadron, with himself as Red Leader, to honor the heroes of Yavin.

In the years to come Red Squadron would see many changes to its roster and eventually become part of the Greeop Defence Force, stationed on the Mon Calamari MC80a Star Cruiser Windstorm where it remains to this day.

Red Squadron is currently headed by BGN. Ta-Re Djo who was fundamental in setting up the original Trivia competition which has now been opened up to the entire RS and it's social media followers.
