The TIE/sa bombers of Scimitar Squadron were typically assigned to attack secondary targets and provide cover during bombing runs. Their targeting systems were calibrated to track fast-moving Rebel starfighters.[4] Armed with proton torpedos and proton bombs, the TIE/sa bombers of Scimitar Squadron were additionally equipped with advanced targeting systems to increase damage during planetary bombardment.[5][6]

Scimitar Squadron was assigned to Death Squadron during the Galactic Civil War[2] and were utilized after the Battle of Hoth in the pursuit of the Millennium Falcon. Its TIE/sa bombers were sent into the Hoth asteroid field in an attempt to flush out the Falcon from its last known location on one of the larger asteroids.[7] The squadron suffered several hardships during the search, including Scimitar 2 narrowly escaping a space slug and its subsequent damage from an asteroid collision.[3]

Scimitar Squadron was later assigned to defend the Endor shield generator and fought at the Battle of Endor against the Rebel Fleet.[1] Afterwards, they participated in the evacuation of the Death Star II shortly before its destruction.
