"Red Five standing by."
―Luke Skywalker — (audio) Listen (file info)[1]

Red Five was the callsign for the fifth member of Red Squadron.


The callsign was used by Pedrin Gaul of the Massassi Group during the battle over Scarif; however, Gaul was killed in the battle, leaving the position vacant.[2] It was later taken up by Luke Skywalker when he joined the Massassi Group shortly before the Battle of Yavin,[1] and he would use this callsign in that battle as well as in several subsequent missions.[3] After Skywalker destroyed the first Death Star, the callsign became synonymous with the actual X-wing fighter he flew.[4] Grizz Frix used the callsign during the Battle of Endor.[5]
