    This battle was initiated when Moff Seerdon chose to hold Chandrila hostage in an attempt to make the Rebellion pay for its raid on Fest. General Carlist Rieekan ordered Rogue Squadron to escort a supply Hovertrain headed to the city of Chandrila. Imperial Forces under the command of Moff Seerdon were attempting to bombard and surround the city of Chandrila with Wall Builders. Rogue Squadron was escorting the supply Hovertrain, when it was attacked by an extensive amount of TIE Interceptors and pairs of TIE Bombers for a total around 1 squadron making bombing runs on the train. When Rogue Squadron was able to defeat that attack and when they arrived at the city 3 TIE Bombers were at work at bombing the city, but they could not complete their mission since they were destroyed by the Rebels. Once the TIE Bombers were cleared out 3 Rebel Lambda-class Shuttles being used as evacuation shuttles arrived at the edge of the city limits, but they were attacked by 6 AT-STs coming from two different directions from outside of the city. The AT-STs were unfortunately unsuccessful in destroying the shuttles, since they were all destroyed by the Rebels. There was another attacking AT-ST at the other end of the city, it was most likely destroyed by the Rebels. After the AT-STs were destroyed another bombing run was made on the city by 3 TIE Bombers escorted by 1 TIE Interceptor, but they were ultimately unsuccessful and were destroyed by the Rebels. When the Rebel shuttles were completed their evacuation and leaving the area, they were attacked by 3 TIE Interceptors, which were shot down before they could eliminate the escaping Rebel shuttles. During the battle, the Imperial traitor Kasan Moor lost her X-Wing's stabilizer. Moff Seerdon made a communication to Kasan Moor, taunting her for switching to the wrong side of the Galactic Civil War...the Rebellion. In anger she was going to engage and attempt to destroy Moff Seerdon, but she was ordered by Skywalker to not to engage on the grounds that they (the Rebels) did not know how many fighters were protecting him and also they (Rogue Squadron) had to protect the city of Chandrila. Moff Seerdon got the final word over the traitor Kasan Moor by declaring her a coward. The Moff was in his Lambda-class Shuttle leaving the site of the battle and he was being escorted by 4 TIE Interceptors.
