Template:Rank plate In the Imperial Starfighter Corps, a Group Captain generally commanded an entire group. A typical group would consist of several wings depending on the task force assembled. A group held at least 4 wings and at a minimum had 288 ships, 480-1200 officers, and 720-2160 enlisted. They were addressed as captain. If a group had more than one Group Captain, one would be appointed Group Captain and the other Group Executive Officer. If appointed as a staff officer they would act as an assistant to a Fleet Commodore.
