The Irregulars were known to attack less-defended military target, including bureaucratic cores, factories, garrisons and space stations, to rob storehouses, to jam communications and to terrorize, and sometimes kill, high-ranking officers, in all the cases using targets affiliated to the Empire. They also run when faced with opposition, forcing the Empire to search for their secret bases.
As the Empire could not ignore these attackers, the only choice was to assign an overwhelming amount of resources to neutralize badly-funded units. While doing so, the Empire was diverting their resources from other, more important jobs such as finding the Alliance commanders.
