force to destroy the Republic. With the assistance of covert agents like Sev'rance Tann who had annihilated the criminal organizations that could stand in the Separatist's way the droid army was able to claim several victories early in the war.

As the war progressed many crucial battles took place on Geonosis, Hypori, Felucia, planets across the outer rim and even the Republic capitol Coruscant as the two sides traded blows.
