Force Multiple Orbit

Force Multiple Orbit in action.

Force Multiple Orbit was an Imperial Navy flight maneuver that was used to trap and engage vessels who could not produce valid identification and was nicknamed the "Atom".


The basics of the tactic utilized a unit of Imperial fighters flying around the target vessel in crisscrossing orbits at staggered distances. The maneuver was compared to the theory of how electrons orbited the nucleus of an atom, hence its nickname.


Force Multiple Orbit was employed by Biggs Darklighter and his fellow TIE fighter pilots during the initial interrogation of the Lark.
