Operation Darkstar-Retaliation
    Captain with your cunning defeat of one of two Rebel/Airam Task Forces sent to destroy your warship, the Rebels have decided to retaliate on the heels of their previous defeat. Once again the Rebels/Airam have managed to surprise us and have located the secret Imperial Supply Base in the Talcon Asteroid Field. Somehow the Rebels infiltrated the base and managed to sabotage the static defences protecting the base. Right now only a handful of mines stands in the way of the Rebels causing any harm to the Imperial base. All the Type C mines can do is hold off the Rebel/Airam attackers for a short period of time. Your warship, the VSDII Touch of Death is the only ship close enough or for that matter combat worthy enough the save the base from the insidious plans of the Rebellion. The Repair Yard BXE-9 was able to restore your shields, however VSDII Touch of Death's hull has yet to be fully restored. Unfortunately due to the composition of the asteroid field, your warship is far too large to manoeuvre in it and it would take too long for your warship to blast its way to the base. Your orders are to save the Imperial base from either destruction or capture by the Rebellion. You must buy the base enough time so its technicians can bring its defences back online. You don't have to destroy the Rebel Force, just inflicting 66% losses will force them to retreat will suffice. You still retain command of Hammer (TIE Interceptors, specially equipped with shields) and Anvil Squadrons (TIE Bombers specially equipped with shields). Note that Hammer and Anvil Squadrons are veterans. You have been given 4 Stormtrooper Transports. The Rebel and Airam Task Force includes 2 Nebulon-B Frigates, 4 Stormtrooper Transports, 12 ATRs, 2 Y-Wing and 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 16 Concussion Missiles or 12 Proton Torpedoes per TIE Bomber. Both Imperial and Rebel Stormtrooper Transports have 10 Proton Torpedoes each. The Rebel ATRs have no warheads. The Y-Wings have 8 Proton Torpedoes each, while the T-Wings have 8 Concussion Missiles each.

Galactic Empire Data Bank's Answer
    Hammer Squadron would proceed to the Imperial Base. Their objective is to keep the enemy fighters occupied while using the Type C Mines for cover fire. Meanwhile Anvil Squadron (armed with proton torpedoes) would proceed grid B2 and attack the ATRs and Stormtrooper Transports with proton torpedoes. Once the TIE Bombers have fully engaged the craft in grid B2, Imperial Stormtrooper Transports Alpha 1-4 would come to assist by lending its proton torpedoes. With the arrival of Alpha, 4 TIE Bombers from Anvil Squadron would attack the ATRs that were in grid B3 with their proton torpedoes. If the ATRs in grid A1 decide to attack, the TIE Bombers from Anvil Squadron in grid B2 would deal with them. At no point in the battle would Imperial Forces engage or get close to the Rebel Nebulon-B Frigates. Once Anvil Squadron and Stormtrooper Transports Alpha 1-4 are completed their objectives they would head towards the Imperial Base to help finish off any enemy fighters that are engaged with Hammer Squadron. It would not be long after until the 66% objective would be achieved.
