Operation Ram's Head was conceived after flight data from the destruction of the BFF-1 bulk freighter Sarsuma suggested that a Star Destroyer could be disabled by ramming the bridge tower. The concept became more feasible after the defection of the Leafar and the capture of several TIE Avengers from an Imperial test base by the BFF-1 bulk freighter Ashanti. Study of the captured ships indicated that the Galactic Empire was experimenting on a new type of shield, designated the Shield X.
The Assault Gunboats were used by the Alliance to infiltrate a secret Imperial base where the Shield X project was being conducted. There they captured the CR90 corvette Blade 5, which bore the mechanism.
The corvette was renamed Ram's Head, and after final preparations by technicians from the corvette Libra, she was then sent to ram an array of Imperial-class Star Destroyers docked in the Imperial Drydock IV. The operation was a total success, as the Ram's Head caused enormous damage to each of the Star Destroyers by tearing apart their towers.
It is unknown what happened to the Ram's Head as it was not destroyed and was seen traveling into space without a crew.
