    This mission was one of the first operational test missions for the new A-Wing. The Rebel attack was also meant to disrupt Imperial operations. The Empire believed that the Rebellion would not waste its time on such an out of way Imperial Repair Dock, that it was left unprotected. Unfortunately the Empire was wrong. Red Leader hypered into the area and destroyed all 22 of the craft staged in the area waiting for repairs, as well as the Imperial Repair Dock itself. All the craft but the Space Tug T-34 and two TIE Fighters in the area were stationary. With the attack on the Imperial Repair Dock signalled for the arrival of the Imperial Nebulon-B Frigate Virulence, which was too late to save the Imperial Repair Dock or any of the craft staged there. The Nebulon-B deployed 2 TIE Interceptors and 3 TIE Bombers equipped with concussion missiles. Unfortunately, Red Leader was able to narrowly escape the blazing guns of the Imperial frigate.
