Wing Commander is a military rank usually given charge of an entire wing. It is almost always associated with members of a starfighter corps, most notibly the Imperial Starfighter Corps. These are often seasoned officers who reported to a ship's captain for all matters related to flight operations.

In Imperial Service Edit

Template:Rank plate In the Imperial Starfighter Corps, a Wing Commander generally commanded an entire wing. A typical wing would consist of up to 6 squadrons of 12-24 ships (about 72 total), 120-300 officers, and 180-540 enlisted. They were addressed as commander. If a wing had more than one Wing Commander, one would be appointed Wing Commander and the other Wing Executive Officer. If appointed as a staff officer they would act as an assistant to a Group Captain.

A Wing Commander was the equivalent to a Commander in the Imperial Navy.
