Operation Repulse-Beginning of
| The Rebel Battle Line originally
encountered in the Andorus Cluster has been considerably reduced in strength
and size over the past few engagements. However, the Rebels have struck
back. In the past week and a half the Rebels have managed to silence two
Imperial monitoring posts causing significant gaps in the Empire's ability
to monitor ship movements in this sector. The Rebels however, did not not
destroy our listening posts. Through intercepted communications we have learned
that the Rebels are in the process of acquiring replacement vessels from
local pirates. You are hereby ordered to prevent the Rebels from obtaining
those ships. Your command ship will be the VSDII Iron Hand as the
ISDII Obliterator is still stuck in spacedock. Your force includes
the Interdictor Cruiser Agitator. Your fighter complement includes
2 TIE Interceptor, 1 TIE Fighter and 1 TIE Bomber Squadrons. The Rebel and
pirate forces consist of 3 CR90 Corellian Corvettes, 2 Marauder Corvettes,
1 Corellian Gunship and 12 GAT-12j Skipray Blastboats. Their fighter force
includes 3 Preybird Starfighter and 1 A-Wing Squadrons.
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.
