The rules say that the after all participating units are exhausted, the resolve strike step ends, but that's not quite true. The development team have confirmed that the rules flowchart is the accurate representation, which is important for this card. Namely:

When resolving strikes/ending an engagement, these steps apply:
1) (Framework) The player who won the edge battle resolves 1 strike, if able.
2) Player Action window
3) (Framework) The player who lost the edge battle resolves 1 strike, if able.
4) Player Action window
5) Check to: "Repeat if any participating units are still ready."
-If yes, return to step 1, above
-if no, proceed to step 6, below
6) (Framework) Check for surviving units and reward unopposed
7) (Framework) Engagement ends

So, regarding CB, if Chewbacca has it attached, he would have to strike any time it is your turn to do so during the steps labeled "1" or "3" above. If you get to step 5 and all the participating units are exhausted, you have no choice but to proceed to step 6, and you lose out on the opportunity to strike with it.
