A Group is a unit of the Starfleet Starfighter Corps made up of three different types of squadrons and totaling thirty-six starfighters. At least one squadron of any group will be a Starfighter squadron. The second squadron will be either a Reconnaissance squadron or an Interceptor squadron, and the third will be either a Bomber squadron or an Attack squadron.
In addition to the support craft and personnel assigned to each squadrons, a Group will also have a fourth Warhammer-class SWACS runabout and a Raptor-class COD craft, as well as approximately eighty additional support personnel. Some Groups are also assigned a Viper-class Attack Craft when the Group Leader is not the seniormost Squadron Leader.
The typical group is commanded by a Commander.
