Battlegroup Commander

From Emperor's Hammer Encyclopaedia Imperia

Position Description[edit]

A Battlegroup Commander (BGCOM) commands one of the many battlegroups listed in the Order of Battle. A battlegroup usually consists of an Imperial II-class Star Destroyer and a number of support vessels. The BGCOM oversees the operation of these ships and all assigned personnel.

From 2009 through most of 2022, this position was not in use in the TIE Corps. This position was brought back in October of 2022. The three assigned Commodores were elevated to Battlegroup Commander and the position of Commodore was retired.


The appointment rank for a BGCOM is Rear Admiral, though officers that have completed a tour of duty at a higher flag rank will be restored to or retain the highest flag rank they've earned. A BGCOM may be promoted up to the rank of Fleet Admiral.
