During the time of the Great War, the bounty hunter Braden tried to capture the Wookiee Imperial Army Commander Dalborra, but was stopped by orbital bombardment from Republic Commander Gin Lesl because the Republic signed a peace treaty with the Sith Empire. Braden was caught by Dalborra and later taken to Korriban. Imperial Strike Base 18 also had two outposts away from the base with three large turret installations to warn about attack and to defend the base.
The Strike Base was in the middle of a forest on Dantooine and had three turret installations spaced out from each other in case of ground attack. The structure itself had about five levels.
