The Galactic Empire had a garrison stationed on the the sea moon Obumubo during the Galactic Civil War. The troops defending the garrison gained months of experience from holding off the moon's sea creatures. In 3 ABY, the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry was deployed to Obumubo with the intention of obliterating the Imperial garrison in order to create a job vacancy that an individual posted at the planet Kuat could then be promoted to. The Obumubo garrison initially had the advantage over the battlefield due to their combat experience. After two days of fighting, however, the 61st were able to erect siege weapons, which brought the garrison down.

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. Furthermore, the Obumubo Imperial garrison's destruction must have also taken place in that year.
