    For Phase 1 of this decisive Imperial victory in the Airam Sector, Admiral Senn wanted to capture the Rebel shipyard for Imperial use to pacify the remains of the Airam Sector, however he was going against the Emperor's standing orders. Admiral Senn ordered a reconnaissance of the Nocto System and the clearing of any static defences that could be protecting the Rebel shipyard from capture. Imperial Forces had only 15 minutes to conduct this phase before the SSD Vengeance would arrive. Both Avenger and Talon Squadrons were reassigned from the ISD Rage to the SSD Vengeance and also Talon Squadron was re-equipped with TIE Advanced to replace their Assault Gunboats. The location of the Rebel shipyard was revealed to Imperial Forces by prisoners that were recently captured by Imperial Forces. Avenger and Talon Squadrons hypered into the area quite some distance away from the shipyard. The Rebel shipyard was being protected by the Rebel Nebulon-B2 Frigate Valiant. Moments after the arrival of Avenger and Talon Squadrons, the Rebel Nebulon-B2 conducted a micro jump to the Imperial starfighters' co-ordinates. Once complete the micro jump, the Nebulon-B2 let loose its T-Wings after the Imperial starfighters, which Imperial Forces engaged. A short time after the Nebulon-B2 deployed its starfighters, the MC40a Pertenax arrived as reinforcements and deploys its A-Wing complement. During the fighting, the Rebels launched Stormtrooper Transports from the shipyard to rush crews on to the three incomplete ships that were in the shipyard. Imperial Forces were able to reach the Rebel shipyard in time to identify the three incomplete ships that were leaving the shipyard to flee from the area. Imperial Forces were also able to destroy the Rebel starfighter opposition and the static defences along with the ETR which was laying extra mines, just before the SSD Vengeance hypered into the area which frightened off the Rebel capital ships. Imperial Forces were also able to get sensor readings on all of the Rebel ships in the area. In Phase 2 of this battle, which was the SSD Vengeance launching its attack to destroy the Rebel shipyard in an attempt for Senn's entire command staff to redeem themselves. The ISD Rage hypered into the area a short time after the SSD Vengeance. Both Avenger and Talon Squadrons were heavily increased in size to accomplish the mission. The Rebels made their last stand here at their shipyard. They launched all of their starfighters from the shipyard and they quickly called for their A-Wing reinforcements. Both Rogue and Green Squadrons were heavily increased in size in an attempt to destroy the SSD Vengeance. And the MC80a Liberty and the Modified Strike Cruiser Peregrine were called in for extra support in an feeble attempt to destroy the SSD Vengeance. The Rebels' allies in the Airam pledged that they would send what ever support they could. The ISD Rage launched its complement of starfighters which were the two squadrons of TIE Bombers against the Rebel shipyard. The SSD Vengeance launched Avenger and Talon Squadrons as well as TIE Fighters and TIE Interceptors into the battle. A CUV was positioned forward to allow warhead reloads to Imperial starfighters during the attack. The Rebels starfighters conducted their attack on the SSD Vengeance using their heavy rockets. Unfortunately, all of the TIE Fighters, TIE Interceptors and TIE Bombers that were deployed in the battle were destroyed. The Rebel capital ships and the shipyard were inspected by Imperial Forces during the battle. Once the Rebel Admiral was found aboard the MC80a, ATR Omicron was launched to capture the Rebel ship. The Rebels launched their Muurian Transport during the battle, the transport concentrated its attacks on Talon Squadron. It would later be destroyed in the battle. In the later half of the battle the Rebels launched three Dreadnaughts on ramming runs on the SSD Vengeance's engines, these ships in order were the Lupo, Topol and the Nicodemus. These ships came in succession after its predecessor was destroyed. They were supported by drone Y-Wings which were also programmed to ram the SSD Vengeance's engines. Imperial Forces were able to destroy the Rebels' prized ship, the Modified Strike Cruiser Peregrine. Imperial Forces were able to capture the MC80a near the end of the battle. During the fighting the Rebels managed to destroy the CUV, so another one was launched to take its predecessor's place. With the battle almost over, Rebel Gallofree Yards Medium Transports arrived in the area to rescue the personnel on the Rebel shipyard, but they would not be successful since they were destroyed before the could flee the area. The ramming ships combined with the Rebel heavy rocket attack caused serious damage to the SSD. When the last of the ramming ships were destroyed, without warning the Airam Corvette Thunder laden with Space Bombs came out of hyperspace near the SSD Vengeance and with flank speed headed toward the command tower of the Imperial warship. Fortunately, Imperial starfighters were able to destroy the corvette before it could strike a fatal blow against the SSD. Most of the opposition eliminated, remaining Imperial starfighters went to finish off the Rebel shipyard and the remaining Rebels. It was Avenger Squadron that fired off the last two pairs of space bombs that destroyed the Rebel shipyard and ensured that the Empire would be able to take over this sector to restore peace and order on the Airam. As per the Emperor's orders the MC80a Liberty's crew was sealed in the ship and was sent on a collision course with the nearest star. With Rogue Squadron's greatest defeat and losses, the Empire avenged the loss of the Death Star by Rogue Squadron. The pilots of Avenger and Talon Squadrons were to receive Imperial Honours on the Imperial Centre by the decree of the Emperor, due to their pivotal role in the Airam Sector campaign.
