- "This is Captain Panaka to Bravo Flight. Great work, group. The Trade Federation Army is out of commission. Naboo is finally free."

- ―Ric Olié giving orders during the Naboo Space Battle
Bravo Squadron was based on the planet Naboo in the Theed Hangar, located in the capital, Theed, and was formed by King Ars Veruna as a symbol of Naboo's power. The squadron participated in the Invasion of Naboo ten years before the Clone Wars. Members of the squadron joined the Naboo Resistance, with at least two at a base in the Naboo training canyon. During the final stages of the invasion, the pilots of Bravo Squadron engaged in dogfights with droid starfighter squadrons during the attack on the orbital Droid Control Ship Vuutun Palaa. Lieutenant Gavyn Sykes succeeded in damaging the deflector shield generator and tractor beams of the vessel, allowing Anakin Skywalker to destroy it from within with two proton torpedoes.
The Queen chose her Honor Guard from the pilots of Bravo Squadron. The squadron comprised Bravo Flight A and Bravo Flight B. It was led by Ric Olié and consisted of N-1 starfighters. As part of the Naboo defense force, it was under the command of Captain Quarsh Panaka at the time of the invasion. New pilots were trained in a canyon with hologram emitters. Others were promoted in from Echo Flight.
