The infamous EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate Red Wind had been located near Plooriod IV where it was experiencing a malfunction in its engines. The Imperial frigate and its commander had become notorious for committing a number of atrocities during their battles against the Rebel Alliance and several CR90 corvette crews urged an attack to seek out retribution.
Stranded above Plooriod IV, the frigate was protected by a minefield and was awaiting repairs from BFF-1 bulk freighters Onteba and Ramit. The assault run was made in three waves of three CR90 corvettes, Arrow, Hammer and Striker, while two A-wings from Red Squadron cleared the minefield and intercepted enemy starfighters.
