This desperate starship maneuver was developed by
the Alliance's Admiral Ackbar. The slash involved sending your warships
directly through the line formed by your opponent's ships at top speed.
If done correctly, and if the Force was with you, this maneuver resulted
in two things. First, any of the opponent's ships who missed your ships
actually shot up their own ships. Second, it scattered the opponent's
ships, breaking their line.
An escape maneuver developed by Pash Cracken in
which a team of escort ships maneuvers into an assumed flight path that
is altered based on the countdown to the start of the new maneuver. If
the maneuver is to start on the count of 2, the correct flight plan is
found by adding 2 to the second number of each coordinate.
A series of military maneuvers employed by Obi-wan
Kenobi, when he was a general with the Old Republic. The Offensive revolved
around the use of a large number of smaller ships, which executing small
attacks on the enemy fleet in an effort to draw a portion of the fleet
out of formation. Once out of formation, the enemy ships could be destroyed
by a reserve offensive task force, which could then rush behind enemy
lines through the hole created in the main formation. In theory, the enemy's
ships would be unable to fire on attacking ships as they passed through
the line, because any stray fire would strike their own ships. Over time,
Alliance military leaders simplified the strategy, simply placing ships
where the enemy wouldn't expect them to be, and then attacking the main
enemy force from within.

Tron Boral Maneuver
