During the Clone Wars, a battle in space between the Galactic Republic and the Separatist Alliance occurred when Separatist Supreme Commander General Grievous launched a massive offensive across the Outer Rim Territories, resulting in the Outer Rim Sieges. A Separatist fleet consisting of six Providence-class Dreadnoughts led by Grievous engaged a Republic fleet of six Venator-class Star Destroyers.
The battle included starfighter forces engaged in dogfights, including droid tri-fighters and Clone Z-95 Headhunters. During the battle, at least two of the dreadnoughts sustained major explosions on their hulls.
