The Anterab was a BFF-1 bulk freighter used by the Galactic Empire during the "Arms Race". The Anterab and the Degathem were delivering supplies critical for the development of the TIE Defender starfighter. Despite Rebel attempts to end the phase by raiding the Imperial research station, both freighters completed their mission and delivered the supplies, thanks to an escort of four assault gunboats led by imperial pilot Maarek Stele.
