Blazing Squadron is a battle hardened and seasoned resistance squadron within the Cyrandia Resistance and one of earliest to joint it. With its blockade runners and its single Venator-class star destroyer accompanied by X15-class starfighters they are infamous amongst the Imperial Navy. Their thoroughly methods of leaving no witnesses behind often raises eyebrows amongst the other resistance squadrons.
During the opening stages of Operation Liberty, Blazing Squadron was decimated after an Imperial ambush.
05 AQF, the battle of Orbispira concludes the Great Cyrannus War and saw the fall of the United Republic of Cyrannus. In its place rose the tyrannical Galactic Empire of Cyrannus whom sought dominance over the Cyrannus Galaxy. Delusional with the new regime, commander Raymus Oquoné and most of the crew of the Venator-class CRS Defender wanted to refuse the call to return to Orbispira and pledge fealty to emperor Tyrómairon.Others, including the captain saw it as the right course of action and Raymus killed his commanding officer, assumed command of the Defender and headed into the Outer Regions with his loyal crew that remained loyal to the URC. Instead of seeking out the Republic Remnant or the Republic in Exile they began raiding Imperial convoys and outposts.
Raymus and his crew were eventually contacted by General Sesoka and supported his idea to form the Cyrandia Resistance. Within the Outer Regions of Cyrannus, Raymus and his crew continued their exploits and expanded their ranks with new X-15-class starfighters and various CS12 blockade runners stolen from the Rambo colonial sector, or perhaps even provided and officially formed the Blazing Squadron.
In 08 AQF, during the New Cyrandia Wars the Blazing squadron joined the main resistance forces and participated in the battle of Capricaerón. During the battle the Blazing forces stood their ground and the brunt of various Imperial fighter strike runs. The battle turned into a victory and they scattered again into the depths of Cyrannus space and continued their exploits once more much to the annoyance of the Empire.
Years later, in 20 AQF (2819) the squadron participated in the battle of Ambar that saw the liberation of the Miluiel from darkness. Afterwards the squadron wanted to find a suitable planet to set up a more suitable base now that wit hthe outbreak of the Second Great Cyrannus War supplies and fuel were more difficult to find. The squadron eventually rendezvoused with the rest of Resistance Command at Andustar to set up a new base of operations. Later on, Blazing Squadron led a failed rescue attempt during the Escalation stage, intercepting the Arquitens-class light cruiser of captain Vertac Uiana who transported a captive Janice Ross.
During Operation Liberty, an attempt to liberate the Twelve Worlds the squadron was tasked to reconnaissance the Mou'Lhhei System. On their way back to the recently liberated Coruaan, the Defender and its escort were ambushed by the Basilisk under command of captain Marquar Cuinn. Unable to raise the shields in time, the Defender buckled under the fire barrage of the Imperial star destroyer and exploded in a violent flash, destroying the flagship of Blazing Squadron.
Due to heavy casualties inflicted during Operation Liberty, Blazing Squadron had ceased to exist as a military unit.
Blazing Squadron is a well equipped and battle tested squadron under command of commander Raymus Oquoné who leads the fleet onboard either the Venator-class Defender or from the CS12-class blockade runner Confident. The commander leads his squadron by using strict military navy protocols and customs.
