    The Rebels sent three squadrons of their starfighters in an attempt to destroy or cause the ISD Allecto to retreat out of the area in an attempt to eliminate or capture Grand Moff Tarkin. To stop this disaster, all TIEs that were carried on board were deployed in four teams of 6 TIE Bombers and 12 TIE Fighters, each to deal with the Rebels. The Rebels were attacking from three different directions. The TIE Bombers launched their concussion missiles at the Rebel starfighters in the beginning moments of the battle. The Rebels responded with proton torpedoes which were directed at the ISD Allecto. TIE Fighters had to dual duty of protecting the TIE Bombers as well as fighting off the Rebel attack. The Y-Wings were the primary target due to their proton torpedo payloads, as well as the X-Wings. At the mid point of the battle, Grand Moff Tarkin in his shuttle arrived in the area in midst of the battle. Several TIE Fighters were diverted to escort his shuttle to the ISD Allecto's hanger. Nearing the end of the battle, the Rebels realizing that they had failed to complete to accomplish their objectives, hypered out of the area. Unfortunately, the Rebels were able to collapse the shields and cause damage to the vital of the ISD Allecto over the course of this battle.
