    In retaliation for the Airam's attack on the ISD Rage, the ISD Rage exacted retribution upon them. Intelligence believed that the Airam Repair Yard Hinda had recently serviced Rebel ships. Much to the Empire's surprise and delight the MC80a Pietr was being serviced by the Airam and was caught by surprise and with its shields down. Avenger Squadron inspected the ship before it was destroyed by Talon Squadron. In its own defence, Repair Yard Hinda started launching its complement of starfighters, while the MC80a Pietr tried to make a run for it. However, the MC80a never left the Repair Yard, it was destroyed by a volley of heavy rockets from Talon Squadron. Both the Modified Corvettes Salu and Frop were powering up to flee the area, but they were inspected by Avenger Squadron just before they were destroyed by the Assault Gunboats. Before the Gun Emplacements met their fate, the all of the defending T-Wings had been destroyed. The Gun Emplacements also faced the same fate from the Assault Gunboats and were soon destroyed. With the destruction of the Gun Emplacements, Rebel reinforcements arrived but far too late to save their destroyed MC80a or to save the platform. The two Rebel Strike Cruisers and the Nebulon-B stayed out of the battle, and let loose their complement of Z-95 Headhunters. Once the Repair Yard's hull integrity was down to 50% it started launching Escort Shuttles to evacuate personnel, however none of those shuttles would make it out of the area. They were all destroyed by Avenger Squadron before they could escape. It was not long after that the Repair Yard was destroyed. With it destroyed, Talon Squadron set its sights on the Rebel ships. Avenger Squadron was able to inspect these vessels before these Rebel ships were destroyed, before they could escape from the Empire's grasp. The presence of the MC80a was irrefutable evidence that the Airam were still providing assistance to the Rebel Alliance.
