This ambush on Rebel forces took place immediately after the fall of the Yavin 4 base.

Prelude

To aid logistics after the relocation of Alliance High Command from the rebel base at Yavin 4, Red Squadron was divided into two convoy groups.

Collecting supplies from several planets, the convoys were originally meant to rendezvous at Ison, but upon arrival, the first convoy was wiped out by an Imperial-class Star Destroyer that was previously hidden in a nebula. The second convoy arrived to discover the area littered with ruined ship parts. Suddenly, squadrons of TIE fighters ambushed the convoy, followed by TIE Interceptors. Because of the agility of the TIE Interceptors, the rebels had to switch to a faster craft than their X-wings, which incited Red Squadron's first use of A-wings in battle.

Then, once those fighters were destroyed, the convoy had to move through a nebula before they could jump to hyperspace and escape. The convoy moved into the nebula. More waves of TIE Fighters and TIE Interceptors attacked them through the dim lights of the nebula. The rebel pilots managed to destroy all nearby TIE Fighter squadrons.

The convoy suffered some losses, and the frigate Redemption did suffer some moderate damage, but neverless the convoy reached Echo Base on Hoth.
