    The Empire planned an ambush at a Rebel supply cache that was discovered and was to attack them with an Imperial Attack Group. The Rebels knew about the Imperial Forces in the area, but they decided to cover their supplies anyway. ETR Trap Door placed a mine field around the cargo containers before the Rebels arrived. The Rebels had to recover at least one of the containers, to consider this engagement to be a success. When the A-Wings came out of hyperspace, the ETR Trap Door proceeded to engage the Rebel fighters, but it was unfortunately destroyed by them before it could inflict any loses upon them. With the ETR out of the way, Rebel fighters then turned their attention on the mine field. After the mine field was eliminated, the Rebels moved to engage the Tau Squadron. A short time after the battle started, the Rebel Heavy Lifters arrived to pick up their cargo containers. Moments after, Imperial reinforcements arrived. With Rho Squadron and the TIE Advanced engaging the A-Wings, Tau Squadron went after the Heavy Lifters to destroy them, so Imperial Forces could recover the cargo containers after the battle. Unfortunately the Rebels were able to stop Tau Squadron from completing its mission and the Rebel Heavy Lifters were able to get the munition containers that they came for. Once the Heavy Lifters jumped into the safety hyperspace, the A-Wings soon followed, leaving Imperial Forces safely behind them.
