This disaster befell the Imperials because General Maltaz allowed the two battalions of tanks to be cut off from their supply lines by counterattacking Rebel forces — known as the Hitak Harriers — based in the volcanic Hitak mountains. Maltaz ordered the tanks to stand their ground, and all but three tanks were lost before TIE Fighters arrived, bombarding the Rebel landing field, killing many Rebels and destroying much of their equipment.
