Alpha Squadron

From Emperor's Hammer Encyclopaedia Imperia


Description[edit]

Alpha Squadron is one of the original TIE Corps squadrons currently stationed onboard the Imperial-II Class Star Destroyer Hammer, flagship of Battlegroup I.

We operate a mixed fleet of Spectre Advanced Missile Boat and TIE Defenders to undertake our mission as a Special Forces Squadron.

As per the TIE Corps Pilot Manual we are trained to deal with extreme combat situations in space, in the air, and on the ground, Special Forces units are often called upon to carry out missions involving multiple theaters. Just as deadly with a blaster as they are at the controls of a starfighter, these are the commandos the Emperor’s Hammer relies on when a particular objective is imperative to the success of a larger operation.

History[edit]

Alpha was first activated in 3 ABY (1995) and originally led by then General Ronin as part of the fighter complement on the PLT: NL-1, along with the other five squadrons that were part of the Emperor's Hammer

In 22ABY (April 2014), the squadron was assigned to the newly-commissioned ISD-II Warrior, reconstituted as Sigma Squadron.

The 7th Squadron was reactivated aboard the Hammer later on same year (in May 2014).

On 2020, then LC Alejandro Araujo after managing to have the 7th Heavy Assault (HA) Squadron reach Squadron ReMob's goals, considering the squadron's personnel traits and abilities, had proposed TCCS a draft for the unit's mission profile redesignation and after approval, it was formally established as Special Operations Squadron.

Lineage[edit]

Alpha Squadron as one of the original six squadrons that comprised the Emperor's Hammer, has a long history dating back from 3 ABY (1995).
