    In the scene with Jyn making her case to rebel high command, she says "Why would my father lie" and someone says "to draw our fleet out, and crush it in a final blow" This is pretty much Palpy's plan in ROTJ.

    quotes are approximate

    Good point.

    But it makes sense. From what we have learned there had not been a direct major-scale confrontation with the Empire by the time of Rogue One, but so far the ones we have learned of from Rebels were damaging enough for the Rebellion.

    I probably miss what you mean (english is not my language), but isn't Scarif a major-scale confrontation between the Alliance and the Empire ?

    That's what I meant. Before Scarif, there were smaller confrontations between the Rebels and the Empire - as depicted in the Rebels Season 3 Finale.

    You can see why Admiral Raddis was so bloodthirsty.. he was tired of being held back.
