    As part of the first mission in the Imperial Navy's Operation "Clean Sweep", the Imperial Dreadnaught Warlover was sent out to destroy a Rebel deep space supply cache in the Esyram System. The Imperial vessel dropped out of hyperspace near the MC80a Valorous. The Dreadnaught deployed its TIE Interceptor and TIE Bomber Squadron. The TIE Bombers targeted the supply containers while the TIE Interceptors engaged the Rebel starfighters. Once the TIE Bombers were in range, they let off their proton torpedo load at the containers. Early in the battle the Rebels called for their reinforcements. The TIE Bombers kept heading towards the containers to finish the remainder off. The reinforcement Gold and Blue Squadrons targeted the TIE Bombers. Gold Squadron eventually switched from attacking the TIE Bombers to attacking the Dreadnaught Warlover. However, during the fighting the Rebels did managed to get one container of supplies on board the MC80a Valorous. They needed to have at least two on board, but Imperial Forces ensured that the Rebels did not get another supply container on board. With their supplies destroyed, the MC80a Valorous and all the Rebel starfighters in the Esyram System hypered out the area with not enough supplies and with defeat.
