Pincer Squadron was a Squadron of at least 5 T-wings employed by Nami Crime Lord Ali Tarrak. When, then, Admiral Thrawn discovered Tarrak's Deep Space Manufacturing Facility where she was building TIE Defenders. Thrawn launched an assault to put an end to her attempt to proliferate the TIE Defenders. Pincer Squadron was the first set of fighters that were engaged by TIE Interceptors. When Tan Maarek Stele in his Missile Boat was launched only Pincer 2 and 5 were standing and soon they were shot down afterwards.
