Crimson Squadron[3] was a Resistance Bomber Squadron comprised of MG-100 StarFortress SF-17s. They most notably took part in the Evacuation of D'Qar during the Resistance's war with the First Order.[6]

HistoryEdit

During the Evacuation of D'Qar, Crimson Squadron was called in to bomb the Mandator IV-class Siege Dreadnought that was targeting the Raddus (MC85 Star Cruiser). They were all taken out by TIE Fighters, except for one, which Paige Tico activated, dropping all her fighter's proton bombs before being shot down. This successfully brought down the Dreadnought, with the loss of the entire bombing squadron.

Behind the scenesEdit

Crimson Squadron was first seen in the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi on April 14, 2017.[6] The name was revealed on September 8, 2017 on the Fantasy Flight Games website.[3]
