205th Marauders (205e Maraudeurs) is a Alliance Insignia.png Western Alliance squadron in Starlancer.

Background[edit | edit source]

France's 205th is a highly decorated fighter squadron. They fought valiantly in the initial Coalition strike and lost two thirds of their unit during the first two weeks of the war. Fatigued and low on craft and pilots to fly them, they were ordered to stand down and report to the rear for rest and reinforcement. The Marauders earned their nickname in the Lunar Conflict, as they constantly hounded the Eastern Republic supply lines, thus crippling their war effort. Of the eight remaining pilots from the original Marauders, five are confirmed Aces. They have a very respectable kill ratio of 2-1. "Good in a bar fight, but better in a dogfight" is their motto.

Encounters[edit | edit source]
