Navy Personnel
Back

All vessels serving the Imperial Fleets have varying numbers of the following personnel.  It must be noted that all game statistics are for "typical" individuals in that category - specific skill levels may vary dramatically from individual to individual or ship to ship, depending upon training level, mission profile and countless other factors.



 

Pilots

From the men who fly the capital ships to the men who leap into the cockpits of the TIE fighters, Imperial pilots are the mainstay of the Imperial Navy.  they are the necessary element in the military branch charged with protecting the space lanes from pirates, smugglers, alien invaders, and Rebels.

The top pilots in the galaxy are found in the Imperial Navy.  These pilots, following the glorious and time-honored allure established during the Republic, attend the premier academies throughout the Empire.  Within these fine institutions, the Empire teaches these men duty and promotes the idea of maintaining order, as opposed to defending against aggression.

TIE fighter pilots form an elite corps within the Imperial Navy.  Each candidate for admission into the rigorous TIE training program must undergo a strenuous screening and testing process.  After all, they are being prepared to fly the best starfighters the Empire has to offer.

Gunners

Gunners are a special sub-unit of the Imperial pilot corps.  Any Imperial military vessel larger than a one-man TIE starfighter makes use of these trained weapons masters to handle the high-tech arms employed by the Empire.

Most gunners are either pilots in training or pilots who failed to make the grade in all the skills necessary to fly a vessel.  Nonetheless, a gunner must have a keen eye, superior reflexes, and a rapport with the specialized equipment.

Gunners are trained to handle everything from a single light laser cannon up to turbolasers battery emplacements and even the now-destroyed superlaser that was the main weapon on the Death Star battle station.  in addition to their hands-on training, gunners learn to work with specialized computer helmets that not only offer protection but are equipped with macrobinocular viewplates and sensor arrays to assist with targeting fast-moving fighter craft.

Equipment

Equipment designs proliferated under the Old Republic to the extent that the odds of a cadet training on equipment and serving with units which used anything which bore a passing resemblance to said equipment was often remote.

With the New Order , and especially since the massive build-up orders issued after the Battle of Yavin, the Navy has received top-of-the-line equipment throughout the upper ranks of the Imperial fleet.  Only in the lower, system-level units does the older, less-standardized equipment appear in large quantities.
