"Blade Squadron.... start your attack run!"
―Adon Fox, during the Battle of Endor[src]

Blade Squadron was a B-wing starfighter squadron that served with the Rebel Alliance and later the New Republic during the Galactic Civil War. The squadron fought during the Battle of Endor, where they single-handedly destroyed the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Devastator. The squadron's patch, a B-wing over a lightning bolt, was captioned with the words "strike as lightning" in Aurebesh.

In 5 ABY, Blade Squadron also saw action at the Battle of Malastare, during which Gina Moonsong disobeyed Blade Leader Braylen Stramm's orders and attacked Moff Pandion's vacation palace on the planet.[2] Later, a group of X-wing starfighters was added to escort the B-wings in Battle for Kuat Drive Yards[3] and Battle of Jakku.[4]
