Arvel Crynyd flew as Green Leader in the Battle of Endor

Green Leader was the callsign of the Commander of Green Squadron. There were a number of starfighter squadrons with this name, and several pilots went by the call sign Green Leader.


Rebel Alliance[]

In 0 BBY, Merrick Simms flew a T-16 skyhopper under the call sign Green Leader while stationed at Anchorhead Base on Tatooine, where he conducted trials for trainee pilots such as "Rookie One" through the nearby Beggar's Canyon.[1][2]

An X-wing pilot who escorted the freighter Otana past Imperial Star Destroyers during the evacuation of Hoth was designated Green Leader.[3]

After the Battle of Hoth, Stevan Makintay commanded a Green Squadron stationed at Eyrie Base, and presumably went by this callsign.[4]

Arvel Crynyd served as Green Leader in the Alliance Fleet, leading a squadron of RZ-1 A-wing interceptors into combat during the Battle of Endor, but was killed during the battle after his A-wing was fatally hit. However, Crynyd managed to steer his interceptor toward the unshielded bridge of the Executor, destroying it and sending the Dreadnought plummeting into the surface of the second Death Star.[5]

New Republic[]

A New Republic X-wing pilot flying as Green Leader was killed in combat against World Devastators during the Battle of Calamari.[6]

Later, another Green Leader was stationed in the Ottegan system when the troopship Pelagia was destroyed by a missile fired from the Galaxy Gun.[7]

That same year, an X-wing pilot designated Green Leader caused extensive damage to the palace of Grappa the Hutt on the orders of Commander Mirith Sinn.[8]

Yakown Reth served as Green Leader during the Yuuzhan Vong War.
