The Cavern Angels were a squadron of X-wing starfighters and U-wings that were active on Jedha during the Galactic Civil War. Because of a shortage of spare parts, usually only one or two of the starfighters were operational at any given time. During the insurrection on Jedha by Saw Gerrera and his Partisans, at least one of the X-wings was shot down, where it crashed in the streets of Jedha City.[1] Once the Imperials launched their major combat deployment during the Jedha insurgency, four of the X-wings were launched to strike back. Three of them were shot down, and the fourth was chased into the wilderness by six TIE fighters.[3]
