The Ringali Shell Starfighter Wing consists
of all Rebel starfighter support within the sector. Stationed on the
Sector Base, the Starfighter Wing provides protection to the Alliance
installation and performs raids on lightly-guarded Imperial targets.
Though the Wing is composed of only two squadrons of fighter craft, the
skilled pilots of both units make the group a potent force for the
The unit's Corsair
Squadron contains twelve T-65B X-Wing starfighters. Well-suited against
both enemy fighter craft and light support vessels, the Squadron
performs a variety of missions for the Alliance. Be it escort duties or
seek and destroy operations, the Corsairs and their ships are able to
effectively engage and defeat enemy targets while retaining their
ability to flee from deadlier foes.
The unit's Knave Squadron is equipped
with twelve BTL-A4 Y-Wing starfighters. These heavily armed and armored
craft are ideal for assaulting heavier targets, provided they have
escorts against enemy fighter defenses. Able to successfully attack both
medium capital ships and ground installations, the Squadron enables the
Alliance to disrupt Imperial activities without the constant fear of
incurring friendly losses.
Each squadron can be deployed
independently of one another, utilizing their specialties to engage
appropriate enemy targets. However, missions featuring the combined
force of both Corsair and Knave Squadrons present a powerful tool for
the Starfighter Wing and a lethal opponent for the Empire to confront.
