409th Ronin (409 浪人) is a Western Alliance squadron in Starlancer.
Background[edit | edit source]
Japan's finest, the 409th, better known as the Ronin, is one of the most feared fighter squadrons in the Alliance. The Ronin are known for their deadly efficiency and honor. They strike quickly with incredible accuracy. For many years they had the difficult job of being a long-range assassination outfit, with only minimal supply support. The Ronin are now based on the Alliance's newest carrier, the Yamato. Under construction as the war broke out, this carrier and her squadron have now entered the fray with devastating results.
The Ronin have been involved in a running battle with the Coalition since the beginning of the War, including a daring defense of their base carrier against an entire Coalition strike force consisting of three Tornado-class cruisers and a class 1 carrier at the outset of the war, the defense of Triton against a Coalition strike group, and of course, the destruction of CS Lenin during Operation Shield.
