The Starfighter Corps was the Resistance's primary means of aerospace attack and defense. Approximately thirty years after the Battle of Endor, the Corps most notably engaged with the forces of the First Order during the Battle on Takodana and later the Assault on Starkiller Base.

OrganizationEdit

AdministrationEdit

The Starfighter Corps served as the Resistance's primary means of naval space attack and defense, with capital ships nearly impossible to acquire following New Republic demilitarization efforts. As a result, the Resistance had few capital ships.[4]

Tactical OrganizationEdit

The Starfighter Corps combat missions typically broke the squadron into paired fighter elements, consisting of a lead and a wingman. During the Corps stay on D'Qar, the Resistance maintained two primary X-wing squadrons codenamed Red Squadron and Blue Squadron. Blue Squadron served as the primary defensive force for the then Resistance base, while Red Squadron served as support. Leading both squadrons was Poe Dameron as Black Leader in his specialized X-wing, Black One.[4]

PersonnelEdit

The youngest and brightest of the Resistance military typically filled out the ranks of the Starfighter Corps, with many of them recruited from local planetary defense forces. Tending to be high spirited, idealistic and closely-knit together, these 'victory kids' were both proud of their service and eager for action. Despite this, veteran pilots such as Poe Dameron and Nien Nunb flew as part of the Corps, bringing years of tactical experience to both inspire and train the next generation of pilots.[4]

TrainingEdit

The Skywalker Swoop, Antilles Intercept and Porkins Belly Run were all training basics for Resistance pilots.[4]

EquipmentEdit

UniformsEdit

Nien Nunb

Nien Nunb used a modified helmet for his species.

Resistance pilots wore standard 'interstellar orange'-colored piloting jumpsuit and were equipped with basic survival equipment when piloting their starfighters. A single box-shaped FreiTek life support unit was attached to their chest, while four signal flares in a bandolier strapped onto their knee helped increase their chances of survival. In addition, they also wore a white, inflatable flight vest and ejection harness. Additionally, they wore padded flight gauntlets and an insulated flight helmet, along with a Guidenhauser flight harness.[4]

The helmet for Ello Asty had an old Cobalt Squadron logo on it, while Jessika Pava's had one for the Tierfon Yellow Aces sigil and Nien Nunb had one with Coalstreak Squadron's stripes.[4]

WeaponsEdit

Resistance pilots were equipped with a single Glie-44 blaster pistol in a detachable holster.[4]

VehiclesEdit

Resistance pilots normally flew in T-70 X-wing fighters, although the Resistance also utilized Resistance transports for ferry troops and personnel.[4] At least 1 pilot, L'ulo L'ampar, flew an RZ-1 A-wing interceptor early on in the First Order–Resistance conflict.[2]
