Congraulations are in order for CM Neko, LCM Honsou, and LCM Wreckage, who each earned promotions this week. For this briefest of moments, they shall share the tab at the cantina. All three are highly deserved, and their efforts to further the squadron, the TIE Corps, and the Empire have not gone unnoticed.

A few new awards have started to show up in pilots' profiles: the IS-CR and IS-CW, or the "Copper" variant of Iron Stars, are awarded for achieving a non-placement milestone in a competition. We've seen some IS-CWs go out this week for Chalquilla Cup contestants whose teams earned at least 80 kills, for example. Another new award is the IAR. "Used to recognize short-term bursts of activity, the Imperial Achievement Ribbon is awarded to members that exert effort beyond the normal scope of their duties worthy of being mentioned in a dispatch." LC Phalk Sturm and LCM Wreckage have been the first recipients of the IAR, and I expect to see many more in Tempest soon.

The Chalquilla Cup has finally been declared finished, with Firebird at the top of the pile. MAJ Genie and I are planning an awards ceremony for this Sunday at 4pm EDT / 9pm BST. It's hopefully late enough not to interfere with any Cadet Cup games, but we will postpone if necessary. LCM Wreckage (neé Wrecker) has organized a Tempest squadron team, the Storm Knights. The TIE Corps as a whole is also fielding several other teams - we wish them luck as well!

In additional competitive news, our Squadrons Premier League team went 30-29 against the Murder Hornets, beating them twice in extremely close matches. You can watch the recording on my stream.

The Tempest Squadron logo has had a minor update, thanks to the work of CPT Kalve Ryder and LCM Morgoth. It now features the new TC logo and an updated shade of blue. It is atthe top of this report, or you can view it in high-resolution here.

Firebird Squadron training, a Squadrons PvP event for all Challenge pilots, will resume May 2nd at 4pm EST / 9pm BST. See COL Stryker for more details.

April TCiB assignments are due April 30:
