Capsule: The Droid Control Ships used by the Trade Federation to control its Droid armies were converted Hoersch-Kessel Freighters which the TradeFederation already used in massive numbers. This allowed them to transfer crew from transport duties to combat duties without significant retraining, and to allow parts to be bought in bulk, lowering costs as was so popular within the Trade Federations entire philosophy. The control ship was lighter armed than other Trade Federation Battleships, but contained the massive computers and communications facilities needed for controling up to a millions individual droids whether they be Battle Droids or Droid Starfighters. This made the Droid Control Ship an obvious target for resistance to Trade Federation forces, so the Trade Federation equipped the Control Ships with very powerful shield generators capable of holding up to anything except other capital ships. But after the success by forces at Naboo in destroying the Control Ship, the Trade Federation began moving away from centrally controlled droid forces meaning that the Control Ships were becoming outdated quickly by the time the Clone Wars began, however since all vessels were needed by both sides in the war, Droid Control Ships continued to see heavy use up until the defeat of the Trade Federation. Very few of these vessels survived the Clone Wars, mainly being converted back into Cargo Transports, however a couple are known to survive and are used by Pirate and Independant worlds as attack ships, but are slow and weak compared to newer vessels.
