Blue Squadron was the name of a Jedi starfighter squadron in operation prior to and during the Clone Wars. The pilots of Blue Squadron flew mainly A-6 and Delta-7 interceptors, as well as other craft.
History[edit | edit source]
In 44 BBY, Blue Squadron was sent into battle during the Stark Hyperspace War, and was led alongside Red Squadron by Saesee Tiin. At this period in time, the squadron consisted solely of A-6 Interceptors. Though outnumbered, Red and Blue Squadrons defeated Iaco Stark's fleet through skill and sheer force in the Fifth Battle of Qotile.
During the Battle of Kamino in 22 BBY, Blue Squadron consisted of Delta-7s and was commanded by Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi, flying as Blue Leader, with his wingman, Jedi Lieutenant Anakin Skywalker, flying as Blue Two. The squadron launched an assault against incoming Trade Federation landing ships, though General Kenobi was shot down above the ocean during his attack run. Skywalker's starfighter was damaged while Anakin attempted to rescue his Master, though the two Jedi returned to Tipoca City to battle the invasion forces on foot.
In the second year of the Clone Wars, command of Blue Squadron had been handed over to Jedi Master Adi Gallia, while Generals Kenobi and Skywalker went on to lead Red Squadron in the Open Circle Fleet. Gallia's Delta 7 squadron was accompanied by V-19 Torrent starfighters and defended Bail Organa's transport from pirates above Coruscant.
