"Look at this place. This is a real proper fortress."
―Saponza, to his partner[1]

Fort Sunfire was one of two major Galactic Empire Imperial military installations on Tatooine during the Galactic Civil War—the other being Fort Ironhand, near Anchorhead.[1]

Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, the base was destroyed by a Rebel agent as part of operations on Tatooine. The destruction of Fort Sunfire started a contained conflict between Captain Kosh and the local Rebels.[2]

  2. In Kekit's Databank entry, it is stated that Saponza and his partner played an integral part in the campaign that liberated a Jawa clan from the Tusken Raiders. It also states that the plan was orchestrated by Jennica Pierce of the Rebel Alliance. This scenario does not occur if the player aligns with the Empire, so it can be deduced that Saponza's gang joined the Rebellion.
