The 77th Air Wing was an Imperial starfighter wing that operated during the early years of the Galactic Empire. The wing was commanded by Captain Shea Hublin and was made up of at least one squadron: Sword Squadron. Sword Squadron consisted of three flights: Blade Flight, Dagger Flight, and Scimitar Flight, which all flew Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing starfighters. The 77th Air Wing participated in the Western Reaches Operation, a campaign initiated by Moff Wilhuff Tarkin to drive the Separatist holdouts from the Western Reaches region of the galaxy, and in 17 BBY the wing was deployed during a battle on the planet Kelrodo-Ai.
