B1-series rocket battle droids were a modified version of the B1 battle droid used to hunt down and destroy enemy escape pods.


Rocket Battle Droids

B1-series rocket battle droids in action.

During the Battle of Abregado, Count Dooku and General Grievous deployed a group of rocket battle droids in a Droch-class Boarding Ship to hunt for survivors and or witnesses of the battle. The droids eventually came across Pod 1977, and proceeded to latch onto the pod. From a nearby pod, Jedi Master Plo Koon and a small group of clones watched as the droids cut open the pod, sending the two clones inside hurtling through space. The droids' attention then turned towards the Jedi Master, however, and they attempted to infiltrate the pod. Koon, with the help of clone troopers Sinker and Boost engaged the droids in combat. After a short confrontation, Koon severed the boarding ship's hold on the pod, resulting in the ship crashing into nearby debris.[1]

Later in the war General Grievous used B1-series rocket battle droids on Florrum during the invasion of the planet.[3] They were also deployed on Kashyyyk during the Battle of Kashyyyk.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

B1-series rocket battle droids first appeared in the "Rising Malevolence", the second episode of the first season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They were voiced by Matthew Wood who also portrayed General Grievous.[1]
