Imperial walkers are spotted, appearing over the North Ridge. To counter this threat Rogue Squadron is sent with their snowspeeders into withering laser fire and against impenetrable armour. There is little chance of success!
Rogue Leader loses his gunner to fire and orders Rogue 3, with Wedge and Janson to launch an attack using their harpoon. This is a dangerous maneuver and requires that the harpoon cable be wrapped around the AT-AT's legs.
