The Battle of Balamak saw the Confederacy of Independent Systems employ an experimental jamming platform in an attempt to disrupt HoloNet transmissions in the Taldot sector, a region in the Mid Rim.

Contents

Background

A CIS flotilla appeared over Balamak, an important food-producing world that hosted a key HoloNet node, and established a blockade. One of the vessels was a Lucrehulk-class Droid Control Ship with a modified transmission array to broadcast jamming signals capable of disrupting all transmission networks in the entire sector.

The battle

The jamming continued for four standard days until a Galactic Republic task force, led by Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Nanda-Ree Janoo, engaged the flotilla with a massed starfighter attack. Starfighter tactician Adar Tallon planned the attack, during which Anakin Skywalker delivered the final missile volley that destroyed the jamming craft. The remaining Separatist forces were routed.
