Just so that the heroes don’t hog all the action, the Skystrike Academy Squadron Pack for Star Wars: X-Wing gives the Imperials a pair of TIE/in Interceptors and a TIE/d Defender. It also adds characters like Vult Skerris, Commandant Gorran, and Ciena Ree to your team. Long live the Empire!

“My cadets are unmatched, both in their skill and loyalty.”
– Commandant Goran, Star Wars™ Rebels

The Galactic Empire is a regime sustained by cruelty and callous disregard for life, including the lives of its own pilots. At training facilities like Skystrike Academy, Imperial cadets are taught to put the mission above the lives of their comrades. In such a cutthroat environment, the treacherous thrive – those willing to prioritize their own survival while extolling the virtue of other people’s sacrifices.

The Skystrike Academy Squadron Pack brings Imperial brutality to the table in Star Wars™: X-Wing, including a pair of swift TIE/in Interceptors and a devastating TIE/d Defender. It also adds iconic aces like Vult Skerris, Commandant Gorran, and Ciena Ree to your hangar alongside powerful Imperial faction upgrades like Disciplined and Skystrike Academy Class. Whether it is the start of your X-Wing collection or a fresh wave of recruits for your Imperial forces, the Skystrike Academy Squadron Pack gives you access to the tools to win through the time-tested Imperial strategy of attrition.
