The elite starfighter pilots of the Galactic Empire form the Imperial Starfighter Corps. Typically assigned to fleet carriers and Imperial Star Destroyers, the Imperial Starfighter Corps exists through the doctrine of pure numerical superiority in space combat, and as a result uses cheap to produce fighters that lack in performance one-on-one when faced with a starfighter of the New Republic.

A wing of starfighters, four TIE Interceptor squadrons, all of which are of the Mark 2 modification, and two Scimitar Assault Bomber squadrons, are assigned to a single Imperial Star Destroyer. Most Imperial starfighters lack hyperdrives, and thus are fully reliant on their mother ships for transportation in between systems.

The Imperial Starfighter Corps is a division of the Imperial Navy, and thus follows Naval organization. The head of the Starfighter Corps is the Chief of Starfighter Operations, who reports directly to the Chief Naval Officer and the Grand Admiral's Council. The Chief of Starfighter Operations does not have a seat on that Council, however.

Uniforms
Officers in the Starfighter Corps wear the Imperial Pilot Uniform while flying. Due to the intensity of operations on Imperial warships, most pilots, under the direction and approval of their commanding officers, wear their flight suits – sans vest pack, gloves, and flight boots – at all times, provided the wearer had active flight status. Otherwise they wear the Imperial Duty Uniform for the Starfighter Corps.

History Edit

Previously existing as a part of the Imperial Navy, the Starfighter Corps recently took on its own rank and organization, autonomy from the Navy, by the order of Jal'Dana Rall in 15 ABY. The first commissioned commander of the corps was Krieg Inrokana, taking the rank at the time of Wing Commander. The Corps was highly successful, and soon its first commander progressed to the rank of Marshal earning the command of Task Force Inquisitor as the first non-Navy commander. The newest chapter of the corps involves the addition of the most advanced starfighter to date, the TIE Avenger.
