D Squadron

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

D Squadron, also called the "Daggits", are a Viper strike team that attacks Cylon baseships and other military targets in order to distract the Cylons from detecting Viper traffic to and from Earth.

D Squadron, lead by Lieutenant Dante, consists of Viper pilots with a "devil-may-care" attitude. Colonel Boomer holds them in high regard, but an unidentified captain reports an issue with D Squadron's pilots removing limiters from the turbo chargers on their Viper craft (1980: "Space Croppers").
