Thread: Gold Leader

    Gold Leader

    Okay, so, although Angus MacInnes is credited as "Gold Leader," he seems to take orders from the "Stay on target!" guy. So despite MacInnes' credit, I confess to puzzlement as to who is commanding the Y-Wing trio. Can anyone explain this?

    Dutch Vandar (Angus) is the Y-Wing leader throughout the battle. He identifies himself as such and is in touch with Red Leader and the base most often.
    In the trench, with Vader on his tail, he starts to panick. His wing-man (Gold Five) is trying to keep him from flipping out, hence "Stay on target!"

    After Tiree and Dutch are killed, Red Leader responds to the news brought by Gold Five "I copy, Gold Leader" , thus field-promoting him to leader of the remainder of Gold Squadron. For as long as that lasted anyway.

    i never noticed that! well shortest command in history. i was going to say after dutch and tiree died he said "gold five to red leader lost tiree lost dutch" (or hutch in some media but seems to be dutch in the movie)
    related side note i thought it was cool that angus (i heard) recorded new lines as well as the use of archival footage for his apperance in rogue one

    I'll always remember him as the henchman who dies in the grain silo in Witness.



    Anyway, thanks, guys. It makes sense now.
