    The Rebels sent sent their Y-Wings and Z-95 Headhunters to lead a Rebel raid on the Imperial Supply Depot QX2 Platform Goibniu Depot in attempt to capture the cargo containers containing bacta. The platform launched both of its starfighter squadrons to deal with the Rebel threat. Alpha Squadron was deployed for perimeter defence of the area, while Beta Squadron was deployed for point defence of the platform and the cargo containers. The Imperial starfighters protecting the area concentrated their efforts on the Y-Wings, while the Z-95 Headhunters concentrated all their efforts on the TIE Fighters. Early in the battle, the Rebels called for reinforcements, which were the Rogue Squadron A-Wings. Not too long after, the Rebels called in their Specially Modified Heavy Lifters to come and pick up the supplies of bacta. Unfortunately the Y-Wings were able to disable the supply depot. However, the Imperial Forces were able to defeat the Rebels in the end, none of the Heavy Lifters that they sent to capture the cargo containers left the battle, since they were all destroyed. With the loss of their Heavy Lifters, the Y-Wings and Z-95 Headhunters began to withdraw from the battle. Their reinforcements were that were covering the retreat were destroyed in this battle, thus causing the Rebellion to lose another battle against the Galactic Empire.
