Operation Darkstar-Vengeance
 
    Apparently the Rebel/Airam Force that attacked the secret Imperial Supply Base in the Talcon Asteroid Field was one of the two Rebel Task Forces that previously attempted to destroy your warship, the VSDII Touch of Death. Your request to hunt them down and destroy them has been granted. Due to the cumulative damage suffered by the VSDII Touch of Death, you are temporarily being transferred command of the Dreadnaught Cobra and the Interdictor Cruiser Restrictor. Let no Rebel escape the wraith of the Empire. Your attack has been timed to catch the Rebels during a resupply operation. Hammer and Anvil Squadrons have been transferred to the ISD Ubiquitous. Your fighter forces include 2 TIE Fighter and 1 TIE Bomber Squadrons. The Rebel/Airam Task Force consists of 2 Nebulon-B Frigates, the Electra and the Shocker, 2 Dreadnaughts, 4 Muurian Transports, 2 BFF-1 Freighters (unarmed), 2 X-Wing, 2 R-41 Starchaser and 1 B-Wing Squadrons.
Note that the Escort Carrier Hawkeye carrying 4 TIE Fighter Squadrons (Delta, Gamma, Kappa and Zeta) is available for reinforcements. The TIE Fighters do not have any warheads. While the TIE Bombers can be equipped with 16 Concussion Missiles or 12 Proton Torpedoes per TIE Bomber. The Airam Muurian Transports have no warheads. The X-Wings have 6 Proton Torpedoes each, while the B-Wings have 12 Proton Torpedoes each. The R-41 Starchasers have 8 Concussion Missiles each.

Galactic Empire Data Bank's Answer
    First, have the Interdictor Cruiser Restrictor activate its gravity wells, then call for reinforcements from the Escort Carrier Hawkeye. The Dreadnaught Cobra and Interdictor Cruiser Restrictor are not to engage the Rebel/Airam Task Force capital ships, instead they are to keep their distance from them (like playing cat and mouse). Once the Hawkeye arrives it would deploy its TIEs and join the Dreadnaught Cobra and Interdictor Restrictor. The TIE Bombers would be equipped with proton torpedoes, they would keep their distance from the battle. The TIE Fighters would let the enemy fighters come to them, and then they would engage them. There would be one TIE Fighter squadron per enemy squadron, except when it comes to the B-Wings. The reason for 2 TIE Fighter squadrons on the B-Wings is to help quickly eliminate them. The TIEs would keep their distance away from the Rebel/Airam Task Force capital ships. Once the B-Wings have been eliminated, those freed up TIEs would assist against the X-Wings. It would not take long for the TIE Fighters to eliminate the R-41 Starchasers and come to assist against the X-Wings. Once the enemy fighters have been dealt with, an equivalent of 2 1/2 TIE Fighter squadrons would attack the Muurian Transports, while the remaining TIE Fighters and the TIE Bombers come from behind and attack the Nebulon-B Frigate Shocker. The TIE Fighters being used against the Frigate Shocker are to help provide cover for the TIE Bombers, who would torpedo the frigate until it was destroyed. Once that is done, they would switch targets to the Frigate Electra. Once the Muurian Transports have been destroyed, the remaining TIEs would begin strafing runs on the Dreadnaught Punisher. As soon as the TIE Bombers run out of proton torpedoes, they along with the TIE Fighter escort would join in on the strafing on the Dreadnaught Punisher. As soon as the TIE Bombers have run out of proton torpedoes, the Dreadnaught Cobra would turn around and move to engage the Nebulon-B Frigate Electra to help keep its guns off of the TIEs. The Interdictor Restrictor and the Escort Carrier Hawkeye would engage the Dreadnaught Punisher to help destroy it. Any spare guns of the Imperial capital ships would be used against the Dreadnaught Freedom. Once the Dreadnaught Punisher's shields drop, the TIEs would move in to destroy its engines. Once that is done, they would begin strafing of the Dreadnaught Freedom. By this time the Frigate Electra should be destroyed. With that the Dreadnaught Cobra would engage the Dreadnaught Freedom. Should the hulls of the Dreadnaught Cobra, Interdictor Restrictor or Escort Carrier Hawkeye get to 30% they would withdraw to the perimeter of the battle. Once the shields of the Dreadnaught Freedom collapse, the TIEs would destroy its engines. The TIEs would then continue staffing the Dreadnaught Freedom. It would not be long after when both Dreadnaughts are destroyed. The Interdictor Restrictor would be the warship that would hunt down and capture the 2 BFF-1 Bulk Freighters if the battle permitted it, if not, the freighters would be destroyed.
