The 23rd Naval Air Squadron[1] consists of a squadron of Pilots in the UNSC Navy and Marines, namely Echo 419 or "Foehammer."


Several members of this unit, if not the entire unit, was aboard the UNSC Pillar of Autumn in 2552. Members of this squadron were adept at piloting several types of air vehicles, including D77-TC Pelicans, GA-TL1 Longsword-class Interceptors, and even Spirits. When the Pillar of Autumn crashed on the surface of Installation 04, some of the pilots survived, though every one of them has since been killed. It is unclear if there are any other members of the Squadron assigned elsewhere, so it is unknown at this time if this squadron exists anymore. Kilo 023 could have been one, pertaining to the Pelican Identification name.
