During the Galactic Civil War, Assault Transport Tiger was part of, then, Vice Admiral Thrawn's campaign to bring the Pakuuni system, along with the other Outer Rim territories under Imperial control. The transport was on standby in the Nebulon-B2 frigate Ludwick to capture Rebel fugitives aboard Cargo container CRM908A which was inside a base used by Pirates. When Ludwick launched an assault on the base to destroy it, Imperial Ace Maarek Stele scanned the containers to find the desired container. The assault transport was launched and boarded the container to arrest the Rebels. The Pirate stronghold was destroyed to pave way for the construction of XQ3 Platform NL-1 in the Pakuuni system.
