Thunder Squadron PatchSQUADRON NEWSThunder Squadron Patch

Pilots, welcome to this weeks Thunder Squadron Report.

We're now less than 24 hours away from the close of Raise the Flag, the TIE Corps wide competition that has been going on since the start of the month. If anyone has any last minute submissions, now is the time to get them in.

There has been a number of awards to hand out this week, we have seen all of last months Medals of Communication arrive, in addition to Commander Aval picking up a couple of Iron Stars. Good work all around there!

This week has also seen us lose one member in the form of LT Cartec, who has elected to leave the TIE Corps - we wish him well and will of course be here should he wish to return.

Finally, as we move in to October I will put the finishing touches on the monthly squadron evaluation so you should be expecting to see awards drop out of that over the course of the coming weeks.

Thunder Squadron PatchCOMPETITIONS AND EVENTSThunder Squadron Patch
    

We have a number of ongoing competitions at the moment, not least the final hours of Raise the Flag. If anyone has time to put in some last minute submissions, please go ahead as we need all the help we can get!     

Closer to home we have the ongoing Trivia Competitions - Thunder Trivia and Triia for the Challenged which are detailed below.     

A full list of active competitions is available at the TIE Corps Competition Center.     

Trivia for the Challenged     
Trivia for Challenged saw a tightly run battle this week with our new joiner Commander EvilGrin seeing off tight competition from Captain Drake Starfire to claim the win and a IS-BR. Kudos thought to CPT Starfire who claims a IS-SR as top-gun for the month, so well done and also gets a IS-BR for surpassing 50 career points so far, somethig that a lot of you may also do in the next week or two.     

Q1: At what battle was the A-Wing Slash first utilised?     
A1: Battle of Qat Chrystac     

Q2:  Admiral Pellaeon used the A-Wing slash against a perceived New Republic task force in which battle in 19 ABY (Legends)     
A2: Battle of Pesitiin     

Q3:  When Admiral Pellaeon used the A-Wing slash at a battle in 19 ABY, who was he waiting to meet?
