Red Knight was a group of four Delta-class JV-7 escort shuttles used by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. They were sent to assist in the evacuation of a facility in the Parmel system where Grand Admiral Demetrius Zaarin had overseen the development of the TIE/D Defender before his coup against Emperor Palpatine and which was now under attack from Zaarin's forces. The Red Knight group helped ensure that the facility's two remaining TIE Defender prototypes and personnel were safely evacuated on the BFF-1 bulk freighter Mharsup and the Lambda-class T-4a shuttle G'nabgib.
