|181st TIE Interceptor Squadron|
|CO:||Major Alarik Goudinn|
The 181st TIE Interceptor Squadron is the Empire's elite band of pilots. Originally under the command of Colonel Evir Derricote, prior to the Battle of Yavin had formerly been tagged as one of the worst squadrons in the Imperial ranks. This soon changed after Baron Soontir Fel took over. In the years that followed it was headed up by Turr Phennir and later Zakrus Allistre.
The following list of pilots is the squadron's composition around the time of Operation: Vertex. However, at the time of Grand Admiral Grant's assault, New Republic Intelligence were unable to confirm or deny whether or not any of the following pilots were still currently members of the squadron. Or indeed, whether the squadron was still with the Imperial Remnant
