The Blockade of Hydian Way was a blockade formed by Mandalorians that were allied to the Sith Empire. The Hydian Way was an important trade route in the Republic. The Republic Navy launched several strikes against the blockade, but the Mandalorians stayed strong and took little casualties while the Republic suffered heavy losses. Riots sprung out on Coruscant and soon a smuggler, along with a small fleet of smuggler ships, attacked and surprised the Mandalorians. Republic ships were scrambled and sent to aid the smugglers. The blockade was soon destroyed and the smuggler was honored and received a reward.
