    Rogue Squadron was assigned by General Carlist Rieekan to escort a Barkhesh convoy carrying valuable supplies and equipment that were vital to the Rebellion to a rendezvous at a landing site where a Rebel shuttle would pick up the supplies and equipment. These supplies were desperately needed by the Rebels since they had lost their base at Yavin. The Galactic Empire knowing this, did everything in power on this planet to stop this transfer of supplies, by posting AT-STs in the planet's canyons where the Resistance convoy would pass through. When the 5 X-Wings from Rogue Squadron arrived, they had to destroy several Probe Droids on their way to the Barkhesh Resistance Base, where the convoy was assembled. The X-Wings had to clear out another group of Probe Droids blocking the route of the 5 Rebel Cargo Vehicle convoy which was led by 1 of the 3 Rebel Assault Vehicles. The other 2 Rebel Assault Vehicles took another route to the landing site. The convoy travelled through the planet's canyons where the Rebel X-Wings cleared out the 6 AT-STs that where posted throughout the area, while protecting the convoy from two attacks by two pairs of TIE Bombers doing bombing runs on the convoy. Meanwhile, the other 2 Rebel Assault Vehicles went through an Imperial blockade, passed the Big Gun (Turbolaser Tower) Turret and an Imperial Bunker, where they were able to destroy most of the Stormtroopers and destroy 1 of 2 AT-STs blocking that road. After that they past two more Turbolasers and went on to the landing site where they waited for the convoy. Before convoy reached the landing site, it was attacked one last time by a lone TIE Bomber, however the TIE Bomber was quickly destroyed. With the Barkhesh Resistance convoy at the landing site and unfortunately Imperial Forces defeated, the Rebel Lambda-class Shuttle came to pick up the supplies and equipment to take to Rebel Forces.
