    This attack on the Imperial Construction Yards on Balmorra was done after the Imperial traitor Kasan Moor supplied the Rebels the location of this hidden Imperial Base, this base is one of many which was responsible for the production of TIEs and Imperial walkers (AT-ATs and AT-STs). This Rebel attack did not stop the Galactic Empire, but it unfortunately did cripple production for a little period of time. The 3 Rebel Land Speeders from Rogue Squadron were deployed in a canyon to attack the Imperial Construction Yards, the Rebels had to navigate a small canyon while destroying 6 Scanner Dishes, to blind the Imperial Base's ability to send an adequate response to the Rebel attack. When Rogue Squadron emerged from the canyon they were greeted with a hail of fire from a patrolling AT-AT, which the Rebel Speeders were able to dodge in time. The Speeders began making their attack on the first Imperial Landing Platform, but were intercepted by 3 TIE Fighters patrolling another nearby Imperial Landing Platform, however they were destroyed by the Rebels. Skywalker was able to trip and destroy the patrolling AT-AT using his tow cable on the speeder, then the Rebels went to destroying most likely some of the platform's surrounding structures and defences, which were: 1 Turbolaser, 1 storage tank, 2 Barracks with Stormtroopers, 4 cargo containers and most likely the 9 TIE Fighters that were on the landing deck of the platform. When or if the Barracks were destroyed the surviving Stormtroopers opened fire on the Rebel speeders or fled in retreat. The Rebels then proceeded to the other nearby Imperial Landing Platform and were able to catch an Imperial Lambda-class Shuttle with its shields down and trying to take off to escape and were able to destroy it, along with most likely some the platform's surrounding structures and defences which were: 1 Turbolaser and 1 Missile Turret, 2 storage tanks and 8 cargo containers and 3 Barracks with Stormtroopers. When or if the Barracks were destroyed the surviving Stormtroopers opened fire on the Rebel speeders or fled in retreat. Also the Rebels most likely destroyed the 2 patrolling Scout Troopers on their 74-Z Speeder Bikes. After both Imperial Landing Platforms were attacked the Rebels then turned their attention to the nearby AT-ST factory, which was a single building accompanied by: 2 Barracks for Stormtroopers and construction yard towers for the construction of 4 AT-STs which were under construction, 14 storage containers, 4 cargo containers, 1 storage tank and 1 construction structure. It was protected by 2 (functional) AT-STs, a few Stormtroopers, 2 Turbolasers, 1 Missile Turret and 3 TIE Fighters. The Rebels were able to clear the defences and destroy the entire AT-ST factory. After the destruction of the AT-ST factory the Rebels went to their final destination in this attack, the AT-AT factory. The AT-AT factory was a huge 3 factory complex with: 7 cargo containers, construction towers for 2 AT-ATs which were under construction and 2 AT-STs which were under construction. The factory was protected by 2 Turbolasers, 2 Missile Turrets, 3 TIE Fighters, several Stormtroopers and 1 (functional) AT-AT. The Rebels were able to defeat the Imperial Forces protecting this factory and were able to destroy the factory itself. When Rogue Squadron destroyed one of the three sections, which was on the right hand side, they were surprised by a surviving AT-ST and several more Stormtroopers, but unfortunately they were not able to defeat the Rebels. When the centre section of the factory was destroyed, it  produced no surprises to the Rebels. When Wes Janson destroyed the left and final section of the factory, another AT-ST survived but it was unable to engage the Rebels since it had been toppled. With the Imperial traitor Kasan Moor on the Rebellions side, working with Rogue Squadron the tide of the Galactic Civil War was starting to waver in the Rebels favour.
