"Roll forward. Crush everything ahead of us."
―First Sergeant Jimmon Arbmab[src]

The Imperial tank proceeds through the enclosed Jedha streets

The 22 year[2] old trooper and his tank crew were deployed to the desert moon of Jedha, and shortly before the Empire's evacuation were assigned to a transport detail for kyber crystals being exported off of the moon from Jedha City.[1] The tank was escorted by a squad of heavily armed stormtroopers, and proceeded carefully along their route through the cities narrow, enclosed streets—streets that were strategically ideal for ambushes. Nonetheless, the transport detail moved through the city, wary of hostile forces.[4]

Despite their concern, the escort was swiftly ambushed by local partisans affiliated with Saw Gerrera while they proceeded along their route. The escort responded in turn and inflicted heavy casualties on the insurgents, and Gojun, along with his crew, delivered several deadly shots into the insurgents' ambush positions. Despite the efforts of the escort team, the stormtrooper escort was eliminated after the brutal firefight. In the chaos, Arbmab, Gojun's commanding officer, was killed by a point-blank shot from Rebel Alliance spy Cassian Andor.[4]
