Red Squadron was the designation of a starfighter squadron that adorned their T-65 X-wing starfighters with crimson paint. The unit was stationed aboard the New Republic Fifth Fleet's Majestic-class heavy cruiser Mandjur. Captain Tegett, commander of the Mandjur, had his personal fighter in Red Squadron, although during the Battle of N'zoth, he stayed on the bridge of the Majestic-class heavy cruiser instead of engaging enemies in his personal X-wing.
Plat Mallar, a recovery shuttle pilot stationed aboard the Mandjur, took off in the unmanned X-wing fighter and abandoned his post at the shuttle. Tegett's personal fighter was destroyed when Plat Mallar rammed an enemy suicide fighter and saved the Mandjur.
