ScoutRons are a kind of military unit, an organizational grouping, used within modern interstellar navies.
Scout squadrons are composed of ships assigned to the Imperial Interstellar Scout Service.
They rarely serve as ScoutRons; instead, the ships are assigned to other squadrons based on need. For example, many fleet couriers are considered scout-type ships. When a fleet courier assigned to BatRon 10 is sent with dispatches to BatRon 11, it is automatically reassigned to BatRon 11 when it arrives. Ships awaiting assignment to serving squadrons are assigned to a ScoutRon, as are ships being resupplied or undergoing repairs.
