Recon Squadron is a Cyrandia Resistance starfighter squadron formed shortly after its formation. The squadron is tasked for reconnaissance missions, participates in battles and supporting capital ships. However its unique and well known to be one of the more classified cells within the Resistance, often carrying out covert ops missions involving their starfighters.
With one carrier and 12 Reconnaissance-class fighters, with a crew complement of 3 per fighter the squadron is well trained and independent as their CS-16 class provides all they need.
Shortly after the forming of the Cyrandia Resistance, Colonel Perreri Ackdool understood the need of an elite covert strike team to carry out duties and missions that the common fleets and personnel should remain unaware of. In the following years, after getting his hands on the modfied CS16-class he dubbed the Château de Montségur and operated independent from Resistance Command and carried out missions with their stolen Reconnaissance-class heavy-duty multipurpose starfighters.
With the outbreak of the Second Great Cyrannus War in 21 AQF, Recon Squadron set out to do their duties for the Resistance as it headed deep into Imperial territory to operate behind enemy lines. During one of those duties, they intercepted an Imperial transmission involving the Auethnen Raptor, not hesistating a moment colonel Ackdool dispatched six Reconnassaince-class starfighters that aided the vessel in need. Engaging the ASP-fighters, the Gozanti-class and the light cruiser they managed to open a line in the Imperial lines and escaped the sight together with the Raptor.
Ackdool later met with Kara and Aoirtae though refused them to leave their vessel to protect the secrecy of his squadron. He later escorted the Raptor towards the Resistance fleet where Recon Squadron was present during a meeting deciding whether or not provide aid at Coruanthor. Recon Squadron participated in the battle of Coruanthor moments later and various Reconnassaince-class heavy starfighters provided an escort for the Raptor, allowing them to safely reach the surface and end the battle. Afterwards the squadron was dispatched to find a suitable base for the Resistance. After locating various locations they rendezvoused with General Sesoka in orbit above Andustar. Since then, the squadron has been involved in various assaults against Imperial patrols and failed recon missions to locate missing resistance cells.
By January 6 2820, Colonel Perreri Ackdool finally recieved permission from General Sesoka to investigate resistance activity within the Space in Between. Much to the dismay of lieutenant Tatsu Irana, the colonel and the Château set course towards Ozdudrahk to gain access into the Space in Between. Near Ozdurahk, Recon Squadron engaged a Saurien Sector Corporation freighter convoy to steal fuel and ammunition for the Resistance. Disabling one of the large Kounotori-class, commanded by S'aur as well as two of the three Gozanti-class escorts Recon Squadron docked with the large freighter to be refueled. Afterwards Recon Squadron entered the Corridor and headed towards Isle Blue. Upon their arrival, the Loyalist fleet was already under siege by the Imperial task force under admiral Apticyus' command. Deploying their fighters Recon Squadron managed to open a hole in the Imperial lines and managed to join the Loyalist forces into their exodus into the Quadrant Galaxies.
By March 2820 Recon Squadron was deployed along the (in)famous Gorge and assaulted and disabled starbase 04 in an effort to disrupt Imperial activities in the vicinity and draw their forces away from the eastern colonial sectors.
Recon sqaudron is considered a small yet effective rebel cell or squadron. It operates on directions from Resistance Command and is commanded by Colonel Perreri Ackdool, a Mon Nadhar.
Military and DefenseEdit
Recon squadron is a rather small Resistance Cell due to its unique mission objectives and roles within the Resistance. Highly trained and adepted to each other, it is rather unknown to other rebel cells and are dictated not to interact with other cells unless required. Socializing with other cells is forbidden due to the more secretive nature of the Squadron.
