Scholae Palatinae Fighter Corps
Under the scrutiny of High Admiral Thran Occasus - Ace Pilot of Scholae Palatinae - the Scholae Palatinae Corps were established at the end of Dakari's reign as Consul, before being finalized under the rule of Braecen Kaeth.
It was at the request of then Quaestor of Caliburnus - Thran - to establish a more legitimate organization within the Clan's Naval Fleet. In addition to his restructuring of the Clan Fleet into two Battle Groups - Rancor Horde & Starstealer Flotilla - he went about coordinating future starfighter efforts. With the assistance of Dakari, a Consul Emeritus, the two divined assignments for each squadron into the corresponding Wings that create the sum total of the Corps.
As the hierarchy stands, the High Admiral is included in all stratagems and Battle Plans that include the use of starfighter elements. The technical expertise and deft understanding of each ship and their outcome on the course of a battle gives them a vast amount of control on the outcome of the planning phase. Additionally, when present in battle, the Senior Officer can override direct orders of all personnel - excluding the Emperor, Grand Air Marshal and Fleet Commander - if a tactical discrepancy is recognized.
With a new sense of structure and ability to defer to a direct Chain of Command, the fighter element of Clan Scholae Palatinae has begun to surge forward into a lethal addition of military prowess. The new formation has yet to engage in direct combat, but the smaller force of ships was able to navigate through the Rites of Supremacy: Second Darkness with devastating skill and proficiency to claim Third Overall in their simulated engagements.
During the invasion of the Yuuzhan Vong, the Scholae Palatinae Corps incurred terrible losses. On the front lines of the invasion, many of the Clan’s veteran enlisted pilots went MIA or were KIA helping the Clan to defend their home and place Second Overall in the GJW. In light of the major loss, High Admiral Thran Occasus began a major overhaul of the Corps training criteria as well as initiated testing emergency preparedness. In lieu of the Fleet’s reconstruction under Operation: Strike Back, the TIE Corps also saw a wave of upgrades and repairs. With a several squadrons of the improved TIE Hunter, TIE Defenders, and TIE Interceptors, Scholae’s winged heroes stand poised to protect their Clan once again…
Structure & Ranks
The command structure, or element breakdown, of the Scholae Palatinae Fighter Corps complies with Imperial TIE Corps criteria. As such, the collective identity of the entire Clan Fighter Forces falls under the official title: Scholae Palatinae Corps.
Because the Corps is made of such a large number of starfighters, it must be organized into units, each with its own leaders and reporting structure. Each unit—whether it’s a squadron or division was created to respond to any mission, regardless of size or complexity. To further aid this rigid structure, each group of 3 squadrons were redefined into Fighter Groups, corresponding to their mission protocol.
Each Squadron of pilots is filled with the most adept of those who have successfully completed an intense training regiment, including but not limited to Simulations of Combat and successful completion of a Pilot’s Proving Course. In order to reduce casualties, High Admiral Thran Occasus keeps this strict policy for all members of the Corps.
|Corps:||2 or more Divisions||Force Marshal|
|Division:||2 or more Wings||General|
|Wing:||3 to 6 Squadrons||Lt. Colonel|
