"That's Felucia, dead ahead."
"But where's the medical station? I don't see anything on my scanners. Wait, there's something."
―Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano, referring to the deployment station[src]

The automated vulture droid deployment station,[2] also referred to as the Automated Droid Deployment Station,[3] was a type of space station used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars against the Galactic Republic to carry Vulture-class starfighter. It could launch a total of six droid starfighters when hostile vessels approached in its territory.[1]

During the Clone Wars in 21 BBY,[4] after the destruction of Felucia Medical Station HCTFF2 at the hands of Separatist forces, the Confederacy placed an automated vulture droid deployment station above the planet Felucia. The station was later encountered by Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano, to which it deployed all six fighters against their T-6 shuttle.[1]
