Dagger 2 was an Assassin-class corvette used by the Galactic Empire.

At some point prior to the Battle of Hoth, Dagger 2 was hauling TIE Series starfighter parts and its sister ship Dagger 1 was hauling torpedoes when they were ensnared by Rebel type B ion cannon minefield M2.

A pair of Missile Boats were dispatched to free the corvettes and defend the repair operation carried out by Gamma-class ATR-6 assault transport Omega from the Rebel MC40a light cruiser Planka, which arrived to claim the prize the Rebel minefield had caught.

The Missile Boats destroyed the minefield, the Rebel cruiser, and the starfighters the cruiser launched. The Dagger group then entered hyperspace to continue their mission.
