"Sky Fury Squadron! Destroy the Hyperion!"

Sky Fury Squadron is an elite Viking unit of the Terran Dominion Armed Forces.

History

Near the end of the Second Great War, Sky Fury Squadron fought in defense of Augustgrad during the Swarm's invasion of Korhal. The squadron, along with the Night Wolves, attempted to stop Sarah Kerrigan from destroying the planet's Drakken defense network.[3] Later, Sky Fury Squadron fought in defense of the Korhal Palace itself against the zerg and Raynor's Raiders. At one point, Mengsk personally ordered Sky Fury Squadron to destroy the Hyperion, but they failed. Ultimately the Swarm and the Raiders triumphed over the Elite Guard and ended Mengsk's reign.[1]

During the Defenders of Man Insurgency, members of Sky Fury Squadron defected to General Carolina Davis and the Defenders of Man. They aided in the final defense of the Xanthos at the Cerros Shipyards against Dominion forces led by Agent Nova Terra.[2]
