―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 missionsEdit

Dreadnaught Warlover Attacks Rebel Cargo OperationEdit

TRN group Val was delivering supply containers to Rebel Alliance CRS Valorous in the Esyram system when it was attacked by the Imperial Dreadnaught Warlover and its starfighter complement.

Raid on Goibniu PlatformEdit

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 42Edit

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 TormentorEdit

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 PlatformEdit

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 AtterolEdit

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

Frigate Duel: Malevolent vs. EndeavorEdit

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

Attack on Victory-class Star Destroyer FormidableEdit

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 scenesEdit

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.
