"Emperor Palpatine has decreed that all Rebel insurgents meet the firm hand of Imperial justice. To reach this objective, military forces of the Imperial Navy are to conduct a search-and-destroy campaign to wipe out all Rebel strongholds."
―Battle description[src]

Imperial Fleet Operation: Clean Sweep was a campaign fought by the ruling Galactic Empire against the rebellious forces of the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. The engagements involved both Imperial assaults and Rebel counterstrikes, ranging from convoy strikes to frantic defense missions.

Battle missions[edit | edit source]

Dreadnaught Warlover Attacks Rebel Cargo Operation[edit | edit source]

Raid on Goibniu Platform[edit | edit source]

Rebel starfighters attacked the Imperial supply depot in the Goibniu system and attempted to steal some Class-E Cargo Containers with bacta by means of six Heavy Lifters of HLF group SFNGR.

Raid on Rebel Factory Koensayr 42[edit | edit source]

Imperial strike forces attacked Rebel Factory Koensayr 42 as ESC Eleusis was taking on a squadron of newly produced Y-wings. During the battle, Imperial commandos tried to infiltrate the factory and plant a computer virus that would crash the remote-controlled Y-wings into the Eleusis instead of docking them.

Attack on Imperial-class Star Destroyer Tormentor[edit | edit source]

HLF group Bellboy was retrieving supplies delivered by four ships of FRT group Monru for Imperial-class Star Destroyer Tormentor near Udnil II when Rebel starfighters attacked.

Ambush of Rebel Leader at Airam Platform[edit | edit source]

The Rebel CRV Intrepid must flee from neutral PLT/1 Airam under starfighter cover to evade a capture attempt by Imperial Gunboats and Assault Transports.

Raid on Imperial Convoy near Atterol[edit | edit source]

Rebel fighters raided a convoy consisting of FRG Tegret and three ships of CNVYR group Xibo near the Atterol system.

Frigate Duel: Malevolent vs. Endeavor[edit | edit source]

In an evenly matched fight, Imperial FRG Malevolent squared off against Rebel FRG Endeavor.

Attack on Victory-class Star Destroyer Formidable[edit | edit source]

The Victory-class Star Destroyer Formidable was found to block a vital location in the Dellalt system where a Rebel supply convoy was expected to pass in the near future. The Rebels launched a heavy starfighter attack against the Formidable, but Imperial FRG Fury joined the fray.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Although the occurrence of the individual missions of X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter can be considered canonical within Star Wars Legends, the outcome depends on the player's actions. Therefore, the canonical outcome of each mission is unclear. It is safe to assume that no side achieved a lasting effect (such as the destruction of a starship) over the course of the battle.
