Scimitar Squadron was assigned to Death Squadron during the Galactic Civil War and were utilized after the Battle of Hoth in the pursuit of the Millennium Falcon. Its TIE/sa bombers were sent into the Hoth asteroid field in an attempt to flush out the Falcon from its last known location on one of the larger asteroids. The squadron suffered several hardships during the search, including Scimitar 2 narrowly escaping a space slug and its subsequent damage from an asteroid collision. Scimitar Squadron was later assigned to defend the Endor shield generator and fought at the Battle of Endor against the Rebel Fleet. Afterwards, they participated in the evacuation of the Death Star II shortly before its destruction.
