The Rebel Alliance are a faction in the Star Wars Series.
Although it had fewer troops and resources when compared to the Imperial Military, the Alliance possessed a strong will to fight, dedicated and equally trained soldiers, and brilliant commanders. The Alliance found its first major victory at Toprawa, and would later deal a massive blow to the Empire at the Battle of Yavin. Following the deaths of Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader during the Battle of Endor, the Alliance became the Alliance of Free Planets, and would finally realize its goal of reviving the Old Republic, especially following the capture of Coruscant.
The Alliance to Restore the Republic (also known as the Alliance to Restore Freedom to the Galaxy, the Rebel Alliance and, informally, as the Rebellion), was a loose alliance of planetary-, system-, and sector-level forces formed in direct military opposition to the Galactic Empire. It was originally formed by a group of Loyalists, united by Galen Marek, determined to preserve the ideals of the Galactic Republic. The Corellian Treaty and the Declaration of Rebellion formally organized the Alliance, and the crest of the Marek family stood as the symbol of the Alliance after his act of redemption on the Death Star. The Alliance and the Galactic Empire engaged in open warfare in a conflict known as the Galactic Civil War, which the Rebellion fighting to restore liberty to the galaxy.
Battle vs. COG (by Samurai234)Edit
On a small city resembling Cloud City, six COG soldiers are patrolling the area for any Locust activity. Two are armed with lancer assult rifles, two are armed with gnasher shotguns, one is armed with a longshot sniper rifle, and the last member is armed with a hammer of dawn. Down below, the COG spot six members of the Rebel Alliance. Three are armed with DH-17 blaster rifles, one is armed with a shotgun, one is armed with a E-17d sniper rifle, and the last member is armed with a HH-15 projectile launcher. The rebels enter the carbon freezing chamber, with the exception of the sniper, who goes to another building. The COG decide to engage them and follow them, except for the sniper, who stays behind. Inside the chamber, both sides split up into teams. Two Rebels spot two gears and open fire with their rifles. One gear is hit directly in his chest, killing him instantly.
However, the other gear acts quickly and kills one of the rebels with his lancer.
The gear fires his rifle at the other rebel and wounds him. Thinking he's killed him, he exits the building, but the rebel with the shotgun pops out and shoots him, injuring him. Suddenly, the rebel is hit in his head, and is killed. His assailant, the gear sniper.
The injured COG soldier tries to get up, but he is picked off by the rebel sniper.
Meanwhile, two more rebels are patrolling a hallway, unaware that a gear has set up a trap for them, a bolo grenade. As the rebel approach the end of the hallway, the gear hurls the grenade, killing one the rebels and throwing the other to the floor.
The COG walks up to the injured rebel and blows his head up with his gnasher.
Meanwhile, the last two rebels are looking for the gears, when they spot one hiding in a corridor. One of the rebel hurls a Thermal Detonator, and the gear goes flying.
The two rebels decide to split up, and one of them approach a small building. After investing the building, he decides to leave, but unaware to him, the gear armed the hammer of dawn has already put the satellite to attack the rebel. Without any warning a large particle of light falls from the sky and reduces the rebel's body to a mere corpse.
Meanwhile, the last rebel approaches the gear armed with his shotgun. The gear can't get the satellite to lock on the last rebel in time, and ends up getting a head-shot.
The rebel switches to his DL-44 heavy blaster pistol, and looks around for any remaining gears. He spots one armed with a snub pistol and fires at him, but misses. The two exchange fire until the gear runs out of ammo. The rebel shoots him with two rounds in his pistol and kills him.
The remaining gear, realizing that all his comrades are dead, decides to contact the base to report what happened. However, he is surprised to find the rebel pointing a HH-15 right at him! The rebel smirks, pulls the trigger, and fires a rocket that blows the gear up.
The Rebel surveys the damages, yells in victory, and walks off to report to his base what happened.
