Talon Squadron was an Imperial heavy strike/starfighter support squadron consisting of Assault Gunboats and TIE Avengers.

It was formed after the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Rage of Task Force Vengeance received a shipment of advanced TIE Avenger and Assault Gunboat starfighters, replacing her stock TIE/ln starfighters, TIE/In interceptors and TIE/sa bombers. Avenger Squadron received the space superiority TIE's, while Avenger's former support squadrons, Beta and Gamma, were reformed into Talon Squadron and flew the Assault Gunboat almost exclusively. Towards the end of Task Force Vengeance's campaign, Talon Squadron would also fly the TIE Avenger.

During the operations of Task Force Vengeance under Admiral Senn, Talon Squadron's duties primarily involved heavy strike missions against enemy capital ships, disabling target vessels with ion cannons and the support of Avenger Squadron during combat.
