As the Rebel Gold Squadron Y-wings begin their bombing run, twenty heavy duty Imperial turbolaser cannons bombard the claustrophobic Death Star trench in green energy fire, only stopping with the soon arrival of Darth Vader's unique TIE fighter and escorts
A wide image of a model cannon firing was one of the first successfully completed effects shots for STAR WARS by ILM in 1976.
