Construction of Echo Base
Several crucial incidents occured during the construction of Echo Base on
- An outlying sensor relay station went quiet, and Squad 16782 went to
investigate. Discovering the ice beasts that would later be known as
wampa had destroyed the construction droid, they managed to drive the
creatures away and get the station online.
- Squad 16782 and Uscano Squad were
instrumental in the development of the snow-adapted airspeeders which
would form the center of the mechanized Alliance force on Hoth. They were
often seen racing the snowspeeders and pressing them to their limits.
- Squad 16782 assisted in the demolition of the small rocky moon
crevasse that would become the main drydock facility for heavy capital
ships such as the Mon Calamari Cruisers that were the backbone of Alliance
Naval assault doctrine. Deep in that crevasse, they also discovered
information regarding the origins of the Sosef Triptych and the Daydoshan precursors.
