Operation Darkstar-Duty Calls
    Captain, your Victory-II class Star Destroyer Touch of Death has been assigned to Operation Darkstar. Your Star Destroyer is to participate in a covert operation designed to help Imperial Task Force Vengeance in the Airam Sector. Other ships will be assigned to Operation Darkstar as Imperial High Command sees fit. You have been ordered to capture a massive Airam supply depot that has been supplying the Rebel Alliance in that sector. The supply depot is located near a highly active pulsar and due to the unique nature of the area, there is only one safe hyperspace route in or out of the area. All Rebel craft in the area are either to be captured or destroyed, no ship is to escape. Your VSDII Touch of Death has been specially assigned Hammer (TIE Interceptors, specially equipped with shields) and Anvil Squadrons (TIE Bombers specially equipped with shields). Note that Hammer and Anvil Squadrons are veterans. Other craft available to you are 2 ATRs. You also have the option of deploying Spacetroopers and standard Stormtroopers. Rebel opposition is led by the MC40a Shadowstrike. Its forces include 2 veteran X-Wing Squadrons, 2 Stormtrooper Transports and 6 Cargo Ferries. The Airam Forces include 2 T-Wing Squadrons. [A Veteran squadron is the equivalent 2 ordinary squadrons]
Note that there are no reinforcements available. Hammer Squadron does not have any warheads. Anvil Squadron has been equipped with 12 Proton Torpedoes per TIE Bomber. The ATRs have only 4 Proton Torpedoes each. The X-Wings have 6 Proton Torpedoes each, while the T-Wings have no warheads. However, the Stormtrooper Transports have 10 Proton Torpedoes each. The Airam supply depot has no shields.

Galactic Empire Data Bank's Answer
    Order Hammer Squadron to allow Green and Red Squadrons to come to it. This will allow the VSDII Touch of Death fire a barrage of fire which will help keep the X-Wings off balance and possibly score lucky hits. Throughout the entire battle, the VSDII Touch of Death would lend any fire support to Hammer Squadron when possible, again to help keep the X-Wings off balance. The VSDII Touch of Death will hold its position to ensure that the Rebel force will not be able escape out of the area. Anvil Squadron will hook right going through grids E2, E3 and D4 to attack and quickly destroy the Rebel Stormtrooper Transports using proton torpedoes. After which they would then make a bombing run towards the Cargo Ferries. Their orders are not to destroy them, rather to bring down their shields. Anvil Squadron would take on the T-Wings to help prevent them from joining the battle against Hammer Squadron. Anvil Squadron would do all it can to thin the ranks of the T-Wings, while at the same time keeping them occupied. Hammer Squadron would do all it can to keep the Rebel fighters away from the VSDII. This would allow the launching of both ATRs. The ATRs would loop around to disable the Cargo Ferries one by one. When attacking the ATRs would attack from the aft of the Cargo Ferries and thus using them as shields against any possible incoming fire from the MC40a Shadowstrike. Once the MC40a Shadowstrike comes into range, the VSDII Touch of Death would use all available weapons against the Rebel vessel and would hold it in place with its tractor beams. Once the Cargo Ferries are disabled, the ATRs would make their way towards the Anvil Squadron and lend them some fire support. Once the T-Wings have been taken out, Anvil Squadron would let off the remainder of the proton torpedo load at the MC40a to quickly destroy it. With that they would move in to assist Hammer Squadron while the ATRs capture the Cargo Ferries. Also with the MC40a destroyed, the VSDII would be able to lend more guns against the X-Wings. It would not long after until the remaining enemy fighters would be destroyed.
