Anyone know if the empire has any ace squadrons? If so what are there markings?

I’m not sure what you mean by Ace Squarrons.
However we do have the Jolly Roger Squadron which the TIE Pilots and their variations. Within that many garrisons, including Bast Alpha, has a local group of TIE Pilots. It is called Velker Flight.

As far as the Jolly Rogers Squadron goes we have an ace of Aces program which denotes kill counts.
Once a pilot costume is approved, each 25 kills earns and Ace. Beginning at 25 kills is the Ace award followed by the coveted double ace award
At 50 kills and then you earn Baron status at 100 kills. That is how the program works for the Jolly Rogers Squadron the majority of Detachments have their own programs in place.

How do I earn kills anyway? If I go off of video games I'll hav been way past baron by now

Troops in TI costume are considered "kills". 25 "kills" is an "Ace".

Within the club there is no video gaming award that I am aware of.
The intent of the program when it was started about nine years ago was to get people to take the TI costume out of the closet and wear it, vs wearing their stormtrooper.

This is the current Velker Rankings

Sorry for not replying earlier yes it is the local TIE pilot flight for Louisiana. Once a members TI costume is approved they are assigned a Flight number by me.

The last two weeks I have been exceptionally busy finishing another new costume.

The Op asked if the EMPIRE had any ACE squadrons. Of course it does.

It's known as the 181st Fighter Group and sports distinctive red stripes on the wings of the TIE Interceptors they fly.


Signed,
Corsair, Ace and proud pilot of the 181st. :D
