Summary
Scimitar Squadron, also known as Scimitar bombing group, was an elite bomber squadron in the Imperial Navy that participated in the Battle of Endor during the Galactic Civil War. The TIE 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. Armed with proton torpedos and proton bombs, the TIE bombers of Scimitar Squadron were additionally equipped with advanced targeting systems to increase damage during planetary bombardment. Scimitar Squadron was assigned to Death Squadron during the Galactic Civil War and were utilized after the Battle of Hoth in the pursuit of the Millennium Falcon. Its TIE 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. The squadron suffered several hardships during the search, including Scimitar 2 narrowly escaping a space slug and its subsequent damage from an asteroid collision. Scimitar Squadron was later assigned to defend the Endor shield generator and fought at the Battle of Endor against the Rebel Fleet. Afterwards, they participated in the evacuation of the Death Star II shortly before its destruction.
