    The Battle of Ton-Falk was a disaster for the Galactic Empire. The Rebels accomplished destroying the 2 Imperial Nebulon-B Escort Frigates and a Dreadnaught because the Imperial ships had to drop their complements of TIE Fighters very near the battle, since TIE Fighters lack hyperdrives. During the Battle K-3PO made an off-hand remark to Commander Narra revealed unfortunately a stunning and simple tactic that Narra and his forces exploited. The Rebel Starfighters ganged up on the Capital Ships and destroyed them. It was determined by Imperial High Command that there was insufficient TIE support, so Kuat Drive Yards was commission to design a TIE carrier. The Escort Carrier was the result because of this battle.
