Stormtrooper Retaliation
 
    Commander XC-1098, after much effort by Imperial Intelligence to locate a secret mercenary base, you are hereby ordered to capture it. The base is located on an atmosphere less moon in the Mytilda System. The mercenaries, the Living Hell Corps were contracted by the Empire to help put an end to the Nishudi Crime Combine in the Delores System. Instead of assisting, the treacherous Living Hell Corps attacked the small local Imperial Army Garrison and stole a large number of small arms, munitions and ordinance from the Garrison's armoury before they could be driven off. The mercenaries managed to escape due to a blunder by the Imperial Army Garrison commander. It is now up to the Stormtroopers to rectify this disaster. An Imperial probe reported that the mercenary base is protected by 6 Atgar SpaceDefence 1.4 FD P-Towers and 14 Y-Wings. It also reported that the base's threat detection grid (sensors) were geared towards space, not to the surface of the moon. There are an equivalent of 8 squads of mercenaries, 80 in all. An Y-4 Military Transport has delivered 4 AT-STs and 4 augmented squads of Stormtroopers (40 in all).
Note that 6 TIE Fighters are available for reinforcements. All of the Stormtroopers have been equipped with life-support packs. They are all armed with E-11 Blaster Rifles (Range 300 Metres, 100 Shots) and their standard Thermal Detonator. 2 Stormtroopers of each squad are equipped with 4 Magnetic Demo Charges, while the rest of the squad are equipped with 2 Concussion Grenades (Total of 8 Stormtroopers with charges and 32 Stormtroopers with grenades). All the mercenaries are equipped with Vacuum Suits, DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistols and SoroSuub QuickSnap 36T Blaster Carbines (Range 250 Metres, 100 Shots) or SoroSuub Stormtrooper One Blaster Rifles (Range 300 Metres, 100 Shots). Note that 2 squads of mercenaries operate the base's defences.

Galactic Empire Data Bank's Answer
     Order all the AT-STs to move to the bottom right corner of grid D4. From there the AT-STs would move quickly to attack and destroy the Atgar P-Towers 3, 4 and 5 using their twin blaster cannons and their twin light blaster cannons. The AT-STs would also help to provide suppression fire on the Mercenary Squads 1, 2, 3 and 4 using their concussion grenades. Meanwhile, Stormtrooper Squads Aurek, Besh, Cresh and Dorn would support the AT-STs by moving in to eliminate Mercenary Squads 3 and 4 using a combination of grenades and their blaster rifles. Once Mercenary Squads 3 and 4 and Atgar P-Towers 3, 4 and 5 have been eliminated, all the AT-STs would make a run to the bottom of grid E4 to keep Mercenary Squads 1 and 2 at bay (while at the same time to keep out of the sights of P-Towers 2 and 6). Meanwhile, the Stormtroopers with the Magnetic Demo Charges would blow a hole in the hanger doors to allow squads Aurek, Besh and Cresh to move into the base's hanger. Dorn Squad would remain outside the base to support the AT-STs against any Mercenary squad counterattack (and to provide warning should any Mercenaries decide to attack from behind). Stormtroopers without Magnetic Demo Charges from squads Aurek, Besh and Cresh would provide perimeter defence while Stormtroopers with those weapons (from Aurek, Besh and Cresh squads) would set several their Thermal Detonators on a count down timer (for 1 minute) to destroy or cripple the Y-Wings. Shortly after (30 seconds) the count down was set, Aurek, Besh and Cresh squads would evacuate to outside the base and wait for the detonation of the Thermal Detonators. Once detonated, Aurek, Besh and Cresh squads would move back into the base and move through it and elimate the two Mercenary squads inside (and any other Mercenaries they come across). Once that is done, they would move to the roof of the base to take out the crews manning the Turreted Anti-Starfighter Lasers. With those weapons taken out, the 6 TIE Fighter reinforcements would be called. The TIE Fighters would then proceed to destroy P-Towers 1, 2 and 6 before returning back to base. From there the Stormtroopers along with the AT-STs could proceed to eliminate or capture the remaining Mercenaries to allow the full capture of the base.
