Fighters: 6 Vulture Droids


Description: The automated vulture droid deployment station, also simply called the Vulture droid base, was used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems to deploy Vulture droids during the Clone Wars.

Vulture droid bases were equipped with six of the Separatist fighters for which it was named, which were contained in the sealed pod until an intruder was detected. When a threat approached, the pods would open and release the waiting activated Vulture droids from its docking rack to commence an attack on the approaching vessel. They were often placed around neutral planets to intercept and destroy Republic scout ships.

During the Clone Wars, after destroying the Haven-class medical station stationed over Felucia, the Confederacy of Independent Systems left at least one deployment pod in orbit around Felucia. When Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano arrived in-system to investigate the status of the Republic medical station, the pod was activated and proceeded to dispatch its payload of six Vulture droids. The droids succeeded in damaging the Jedi's unarmed T-6 shuttle causing it to crash on the planet's surface.
