Reconnaissance of Brentaal IV (4AVY) (2)
Basic info
First appearance: Star Wars X-Wing Rogue Squadron : In the Empire's Service
Happened during: Brentaal Campaign (4ABY)
Relations: Brentaal IV
Approximately nine months after the Battle of Endor, the newly formed New Republic began to perform reconnaissance operations throughout the Core Worlds with an eye toward staging a campaign to liberate the Core, and the capital of Coruscant. Following the decision of the inhabitants of Recopia to ally themselves with the New Republic, Rogue Squadron was assigned to recon the planet Brentaal IV. A five-fighter element, consisting of four Incom T-65 X-wing starfighters and a T-65BR X-wing reconnaissance starfighter, entered the Brentaal system and began to collect reconnaissance data. Imperial forces stationed at the Brentaal IV moonbase responded to the New Republic intrusion, deploying TIE fighters to engage the Rogues. A brief dogfight ensued, with the Rogues covering the reconnaissance fighter, piloted by Nrin Vakil. All but one of the TIE fighters deployed was destroyed; however, as the fighter raced for the safety of the moonbase, Rogue pilot Wes Janson fired two proton torpedoes into the launch bay, causing massive internal damage. Unhindered, the Rogues leaped to hyperspace, returning to Base Delta-Nine.
