The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on canonical information, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

A squadron[1] of TIE/ln space superiority starfighters was active within the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War following the Duel on Cloud City. The squadron was assigned to the Imperial assault group led by Commander Ellian Zahra from the flagship Tarkin's Will, and participated in a battle at Rendezvous Point Delta-Three when assault group blockaded and trapped the Fourth Division of the Alliance Fleet. The squadron was one of many starfighter units that attacked Fourth Division starships, but were ordered to attack the Millennium Falcon when it arrived.[2]

Commander Luke Skywalker aboard the Falcon, in a moment of rage due to learning that Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader was his father, used the Force to take control of the entire squadron's TIE fighters, allowing General Leia Organa, also aboard the Falcon, to destroy all twelve fighters of the squadron.[2]
