The 427th Bombardment Squadron was originally the 38th Reconnaissance Squadron. They were sailing to Hawaii to join its parent, the 19th Bomb Group, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on the 7th of December 1941. The ship carrying the 38th Reconnaissance Squadron returned to the mainland and the personnel were assigned to the 427th Bomb Squadron. The 427th BS became famous with its parent, the 303rd Bombardment Group (H). Because of its initial move in the Pacific, 427th Squadron members are entitled to we ar the Asia-Pacific Campaign ribbon.

For now, it's an honor to be able to serve in such a famous squadron and know you are striking fear in the hearts of the enemy by your very presence. This elegantly simple design is perfect for hardcore Star Wars fans. Complete with Aurebesh text, this design screams "nerd cred".

Created for a Lutheran X-Wing Miniatures (Fantasy Flight) gaming group. If you are not Lutheran then it is probably over your head ;-) For those not able to decipher the Aurebesh 🤣 the Lutheranish is: Top Line: Smalcald Squadron Bottom Line: Here we stand Flanks: 'V' 'D' 'M' 'A' From what I have been able to learn over he years, the "V" marks are role identifiers used on pilot helmets; they are authentic marks in SW and they come in various combinations of red and yellow. We chose all red ones for the traditional colour of the Reformation; six of them for the Six Chief Parts of the Catechism 😉 -- and it just so happens that the "V" can be interpreted as a Roman numeral representing the 5 major parts of the Confessions.
