Separatist Droid Army

Military Groups

The Separatist Droid Army, also known as the Confederacy army, was the ground army force of the Confederacy of Independent Systems during The Clone Wars, and was part of the Confederacy military. The army was made up of millions of varying types of battle droids, and was created by the Trade Federation and other commerce guilds.

The Droid Army was led by notable figures such as General Grievous, Count Dooku, and Nute Gunray, and their objective was to combat the Grand Army of the Republic, which was the army of their primary adversary, the Galactic Republic. The Separatist Droid Army`s numerous campaigns included many of the galaxy`s most brutal conflicts, leaving entire planets devastated in their wake.

The backbone of the Separatist Droid Army were the B1 Battle Droids, while the sturdier B2 super battle droids provided heavier firepower. These were complemented by Droidikaas and Commando Droids for specialized roles. In addition, the Separatists made extensive use of various types of tanks, artillery, and other vehicles for their operations.

Despite the vast numbers and different categories of droids, the Separatist Droid Army suffered from several key weaknesses. Their droids were not capable of the level of independent thought and adaptability that their clone or organic counterparts had. They were also heavily reliant on central control signals, and would deactivate if these were interrupted.

The Separatist Droid Army continued to fight throughout the Clone Wars until its end. When Chancellor Palpatine, secretly Sith Lord Darth Sidious, issued Order 66 and transformed the Republic into the Galactic Empire, he ordered the deactivation of the Droid Army. With that, the droids were shut down, marking the end of the Separatist Droid Army and the Clone Wars.
