Inferno Squadron, also known as Inferno Squad, was a special forces unit commanded by Iden Versio during the Galactic Civil War. The Inferno Squad was first commissioned to infiltrate and destroy the Partisans, an extremist group led by resistance fighter Saw Gerrera before his death.
Hunting the PartisansEdit
Inferno Squadron was commissioned after the Alliance to Restore the Republic scored its first major victory when they stole the plans to the Death Star during the Battle of Scarif, and ultimately destroyed the battle station during the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY. Inferno Squadron was tasked with infiltrating and ultimately destroying the Partisans, an extremist group that was led by resistance fighter Saw Gerrera before his death.
Battle of EndorEdit
In 4 ABY, at least three members of the group participated in the Battle of Endor. They were on the forest moon when the Rebels destroyed the Death Star II. After this, they sought to avenge the Emperor, who had perished on the station.
Behind the scenesEdit
Inferno Squadron was first revealed on the official Star Wars website on February 17 2017, with the announcement of their feature book. On April 14 2017, EA Star Wars posted on Twitter a video teasing the announcement trailer of Star Wars Battlefront II at Celebration Orlando the next day. The video also featured Aurebesh text, which reads "Inferno Squad" when translated. In the Celebration Orlando livestream, the group was revealed to be in the game, and the focus of the single-player campaign.
