| Imperial Forces were successfully
able to repulse but not destroy the Rebel Battle Line in the Andorus Cluster.
A number of the Rebel vessels escaped to rain destruction in other parts
in the Mid Rim. Imperial convoy AA-292 which is carrying a large sum of
munitions has been attacked by the Rebels. The convoy is also unofficially
carrying Moff Duku (onboard the Carrack Cruiser Hades). The Hades
reported that the Rebel attack force is being led by the MC40a Yavin's
Justice. And as such the Rebels have managed to capture a few of the
convoy ships. The forces under your command include the ISDII Obliterator,
Carrack Cruiser Hades (Moff Duku relinquished control), Lancer Frigate
Class 1000 Cruiser Rapier, and the remaining Imperial cargo ships.
Your force complement includes 3 TIE Fighter, 2 TIE Interceptor and 1 TIE
Bomber Squadrons. The Rebel force consists of 1 MC40a, 3 Modified Corellian
Action VI Transports [armed with 4 turreted turbolasers and 1 fighter squadron.
Speed 6 Space Units] and 6 Stormtrooper Transports. The Rebel fighter complement
consists of 3 X-Wing and 1 B-Wing Squadrons. The Rebels have managed to
ambush your force as it dropped out of hyperspace. Damage has been inflicted
upon your force.
Since the vessels in this engagement are so spread out; craft with a sublight speed of:
2 Space Units can cross into the next grid square in 30 seconds.
4 Space Units can cross into the next grid square in 15 seconds.
6 Space Units can cross into the next grid square in 10 seconds.
8 Space Units can cross into the next grid square in 7.5 seconds.
10 Space Units can cross into the next grid square in 6 seconds.
12 Space Units can cross into the next grid square in 5 seconds.
|Note that there are no reinforcements available. The Carrack Cruiser is equipped with ion cannons. The TIE Fighters and TIE Interceptors carry no warheads. The TIE Bombers have been equipped with 12 Proton Torpedoes each. The ISDII Obliterator is carrying no Stormtrooper Transports or Skipray Blastboats, but is carrying 5 Assault Gunboats, 8 Lambda Shuttles and 2 Gamma-class Assault Shuttles [with their Spacetroopers]. Imperial support craft are fully loaded with their respective ordnance (Assault Gunboats are loaded with Concussion Missiles). The Rebel fighters are fully loaded with Proton Torpedoes. The Rebel Stormtrooper Transports have no warheads.|
