Encyclopedia > Alpha Squadron

In the computer game StarCraft, Alpha Squadron is the Terran Confederacy military unit under the command of General Edmund Duke.


It is seen as more professional than Delta Squadron and Omega Squadron. Also known as "the Blood Hawks" it's motto is "first in, first out". It was at one time based on Chau Sara but had to leave as the Protoss and Zerg wiped out all life on the planet.


When Duke defected from the Confederacy to join the Sons of Korhal, he took his men with him. Alpha Squadron becomes Acturous Mengsk's elite military unit, and they see much action throughout the starcraft universe.
