    The Airam clan under the command of Clan Leader Tamaron was grateful to the assistance the Rebels provided in the evacuation of Airam factory in the Mobetta System. Because of this, Clan Leader Tamaron offered a generous supply of warheads that were desperately needed by the Rebels. The Rebels were to rendezvous with his clan at one of their hidden research facility bases in a nearby asteroid field to receive the warheads. With the supply of warheads the Rebels would be able to continue their terrorist campaign against the Empire for control of this sector. To the Rebels the Airam would be a powerful ally in their war against the might of the Galactic Empire. The Rebel starfighters arrived before the Rebel ships that would carry the warheads would arrive. They took up a patrol pattern, while one of their fighter pilots conducted an inspection of the Airam ships and cargo containers in the area to ensure that the Rebels were getting the warheads as promised. The Rebel ships arrived as expected into the area, but soon after unexpected visitors show up. T-Wings Bravo 1 and 2 hyper into the system, they were not authorized in Tamaron's territory and they did not state their intentions there either. Right after the T-Wings arrival came the Assassin-class Corvette Tondar and shortly later the two Cargo Ferries. Everything was going fine, except for the situation about the T-Wings, since they were not responding, Rogue group was diverted to check them out. Without warning the T-Wings fired proton torpedoes at the asteroid base, thus beginning the attack and Rogue group engaged the hostile T-Wings. With the attack on the asteroid base, the IPV-1 System Patrol Craft Bubkis was launched. The T-Wings were quickly defeated, the YT-1300 Ranger launched from the asteroid hanger and with that the rest of the T-Wings from Ilay's forces hypered into the area to fire off their proton torpedoes at the base and then they would go on strafing runs on the base, but they would engage in dog fighting if their were attacked. The YT-1300 Ranger helped in the defence of the asteroid base. Once all of Ilay's T-Wings were destroyed, the first wave of Assault Gunboats arrived in a pair, armed with proton torpedoes, their target was the asteroid base just like the T-Wings targeted before them. Right after the first wave of Assault Gunboats hypered into the area, the last of Tamaron's ships...the Assassin-class Corvette Lothar hypered into the area, quite some distance away from the assembly of ships transfering cargo. The Rebel fighters in the area moved to engage the incoming Assault Gunboats. Throughout the entire battle the Taramon ships carrying the warheads docked with the Rebel ships to transfer the warheads. The CR90 Corellian Corvette Ignat and the Assassin-class Corvette Tondar docked with the MC40a Condor to transfer the warheads to the Rebels. The Cargo Ferry Tango docked with the Cargo Ferry Lundi while the Cargo Ferry Charlie docked with the Cargo Ferry Orrian to also transfer the warheads to the Rebels. After the docking operations with the Tamaron Cargo Ferries, the Rebel Cargo Ferries then proceeded to pick up the cargo containers that also contained warheads. Both the Tamaron and Rebel ships hypered out of the area at different times during the battle. Moments after the arrival of the Assassin-class Corvette Lothar the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Wasp came out of hyperspace right behind the corvette and ordered both Rebel and Airam ships to stand down and to prepare to be boarded. A Rebel pilot was just able to inspect the Corvette Lothar just before it was destroyed by the ISD. While pounding away at the doomed corvette, the ISD also launched TIE Interceptors into the battle, some of the Rebel fighters diverted to engage the Imperial starfighters. The ISD Wasp itself moved in towards the asteroid base to destroy it. The IPV-1 System Patrol Craft Bubkis, along with other Rebel starfighters engaged the ISD Wasp after all 12 of the Assault Gunboats were destroyed. During the conflict however, the System Patrol Craft was also destroyed by the ISD Wasp. Unfortunately, the ISD Wasp suffered heavy damage and was forced to withdraw from the battle. With the Rebels victorious the YT-1300 Ranger entered hyperspace and the last Rebel ships, namely the MC40a Condor and the X-Wings also made their jump into hyperspace with their obtained warheads.
