After escaping an Imperial attack, about fifty Rebel soldiers landed on Tatooine via life pods. Their mission was to distract the Empire while they were looking for the Death Star plans. Five of them landed near a Tusken Raider camp. The Empire then sent AT-STs, Stormtroopers, and Shocktroopers to engage them. The others landed near hangar. A GR-75 medium transport was sent to the hangar with supplies and troops. The Empire sent 2 AT-ATs to destroy the transport and the rebels. As this occurred, a Rebel Blockade Runner engaged a Star Destroyer outside the atmosphere of Tatooine, with the Star Destroyer eventually destroying the Blockade Runner.
Eventually, Red Squadron flew down and proceeded to attack the fleeing Stormtroopers. A Star Destroyer ends up crashing down onto the planet as twenty of the fifty Rebels escape.
