The attack on Obumubo was launched in 3 ABY by the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry against an Imperial garrison on the moon Obumubo during the Galactic Civil War as a part of Operation Ringbreaker.
In 3 ABY, Twilight Company had been attacking several planets in an effort to divert troops and supplies away from the shipyards of Kuat. The fighting had been bloody. No troopers had died at the Attack on the dockyards of Najan-Rovi, but injuries and exhaustion had taken a toll.
The garrison had been from fighting off the sea creatures of Obumubo for months and gained experience. The Battlefield favored the defenders and the garrison expertly defended the fort. In the initial landing, 2 Twilight soldiers and a medic drowned after jumping from the dropships. Another dozen died in the first assault. It took two more days for the siege cannons to be prepped on the fluid landscape and the cannons brought down the garrison at last.

Notes and references
- Battlefront: Twilight Company
- The main events of Battlefront: Twilight Company are set 22 years after the Clone Wars, which ended in 19 BBY, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Those events must have therefore occurred in 3 ABY. Futhermore the attack on Obumubo must have also occurred in that year.
