The Battle of Cawa City was fought during the Galactic Civil War when the Alliance to Restore the Republic fought to liberate Sterdic IV from the shattered Galactic Empire. It took place seventeen days after the Battle of Endor and resulted in a Rebel victory.
- "Green Group, we need an approach corridor for the Y-wings, now!"
- ―A Rebel commander at Cawa City
Cawa City, on Sterdic IV, was occupied by the Empire, with ground forces consisting an All Terrain Armored Transport and air support from TIEs. The Alliance sent Green Group and Feral Group to liberate the city from the Imperial forces. A-wings from Green Group, which included the squadron's new acting commander, Lieutenant L'ulo L'ampar, screened the air of TIE fighters to clear a path for Feral Group's Y-wing bombers. Just as Green Group were clearing the last of the TIEs, Shara Bey's A-wing was hit by a pursuing TIE fighter, although not fatal, her ship started leaking coolant. L'ampar managed to destroy the TIE fighter before it could do any further damage.
Once the approach was clear, Feral Group made their bombing run. Their Y-wings dropped magnetising cluster bombs, which magnetized to the All Terrain Armored Transport and destroyed it instantly. Both sides suffered heavy losses, however it was a Rebel victory.
