49AX3 was an Imperial Support Vessel that served the navy of the Galactic Empire. Some time between 3 and 4 ABY, the vessel was captured by the Alliance to Restore the Republic, who used it to raid Imperial Refining Platform M36, a refinery in the Outer Rim Territories. Assisted by Luke Skywalker, the team of rebels managed to steal fuel from the refinery, but their escape was blocked by an Imperial-class Star Destroyer. Skywalker landed his X-wing in the vessel's hangar, where he and the rebel major used a shuttle to draw the attention of the Imperial TIE fighters away. The tactic worked, and the rebels aboard Imperial Support Vessel 49AX3 were able to evacuate, escaping to a nearby world.
