"Sir, incoming vessels!" Kreel immediately turned to face his men "Launch the fighters - all of them! Order them to move as one group and target the enemy ships that have gotten ahead of the rest of the group. If they can't destroy the enemy ships before reaching firing range of the rest of the Republic ships have them retreat back to our own lines and take defensive positions." He heasitated mor a moment "Contact the fleet! Let's move in this formation towards the enemy and fire when we get within range."
The TIE squadrons were quickly assebled and took their places in the formation. The fighters moved swiftly to intercept the closest ships - opening fire with all weapons at maximum range. - they were like a swarm of really angry wasps and Kreel knew how a sufficent amout of wasps could kill even the largest of kath hounds. "Give the command, move at full speed!" The rest of the fleet began moving towards the enemy - they held their formation and were preparing to fire from maximum range. "Contact the Star Destroyers! Take the bigger vessels - expecially their bridges - as primary targets!" The Vice-Admiral closed his eyes and clenched on the walking stick with both hands "Maker be with us."
