“The blockade choked the primary trade route for providing republic military support to the outer rim and the main hyperlane for bringing raw goods from the Colonies to the Core Worlds.”
Era: The Old Republic
The Blockade of the Rimma Trade Route was an offensive action against the Galactic Republic by the Mandalorians during the Great Galactic War. Two decades after the return of the Sith Empire to known space and the start of the war, a new Mandalorian army was formed. These Mandalorians allied themselves with the Empire and joined the war, and in 3,661 BBY, they initiated a blockade of one of the most important Republic hyperspace lanes, the Rimma Trade Route.
