It was a costly victory for the Empire, with up to half of some of the squads killed by both the local fauna and the enemy forces. The enemy's use of sophisticated jamming technology and advanced "Avenger" class combat armour contributed to the casualties, with an overall lack of coordination. However, the enemy failed to take into account the surprise attacks by General Fury and his Force-sensitive bodyguard "Bob", whicb lead to the destruction of/ severe damage to several key outposts and the loss of many of their vehicles. Had the vehicles and troops not been destroyed, the communications building would likely have had a much heavier guard than the force of antique AAT tanks, speeders and missile launching platforms that were assigned to it and the enemy would have probably been able to repel or even destroy the AT-AT carrying the Raiders and Dark Dragoons. In addition, the enemy placed too little importance on aerial superiority, as shown by the complete lack of opposition to the Imperial Star Destroyer in orbit and the unopposed bombing runs executed by TIE bombers on the communications buildings. Had they simply evacuated, they would likely have been able to save a large portion of their equipment and used it against the Empire elsewhere to great effect. However, their decision to stay and fight lead to the loss of their main bases through bombardment and, presumably, the destruction or capture of most of their equipment.
