THUNDER WEEKLY SQUADRON REPORT - #7

To: HA Dempsey, Commodore ISD-II Challenge

From: GN Phoenix Berkana, Commander Thunder Squadron

Date: 25 August 2020

 

The twelve TIE Phantoms rolled to port as they swung around the command tower of the Imperial Star Destroyer Challenge, before snapping back to starboard. To those on the bridge of the massive vessel this was the expected salute as Thunder Squadron exited hyperspace and plotted a course that took them towards their new home.

 

“Nine, keep it tight there” growled Phoenix, “we’re putting on a show for our former compatriot.”

 

“Yessir!” came the response, as the newly minted Commander Aval pulled his fighter further back to starboard.

 

It had only been a matter of months since the then General Dempsey had departed Delta for the command chair of the Challenge, but in that time the squadron had changed its name and elected to follow her to her new command. Thunder as the group were now called had a new home.

 

Phoenix pushed forward on the yoke as the Phantom curved around the imposing hull and arced towards the hangar bay. With a quick glance at the sensors he was pleased to see all other members of the squadron follow his manoeuvre.

 

It would not be good to be seen as slack with a new Wing Commander in town…

 

SQUADRON NEWS

This week has been fairly decent for us here in Thunder! We’ve had 4 Iron Stars and a number of Legions of Combat earnt by members of the squadron, which to me sounds like a good warm up for the Raise the Flag competition that begins next month, coincidently at the same time as the Challenges own internal competition – so everyone get prepped, September will be a fun month!
