A battle over Coruscant took place around 21 BBY during the Clone Wars, between The Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Republic forces were commanded by a Jedi Knight and Admiral Wullf Yularen.

The BattleEdit

"Coruscant is the heart of the republic!"
―Briefing before the mission[src]

One Venator-class Star Destroyer was left alone protecting the planet Coruscant when the Separatists attacked, launching several Vulture Droids, Droid tri-fighters and Hyena-class bombers to destroy the lone Republic vessel, though they did little damage to the cruiser. Later, a Munificent-class star frigates arrived and attacked, but the Confederacy failed once again. Finally, a fleet of Recusant-class light destroyers arrived in orbit and although the Recusant was repelled too, the Republic vessel was dealt some damage. Later, a Lucrehulk-class Droid Control Ship arrived and launched its many Droid tri-fighters, causing more considerable damage to the Republic ship. However, the Droid Control Ship was destroyed in the process, leaving the Republic victorious.


The Confederate forces were defeated and repelled from Coruscant by the single Venator-class Star Destroyer, which was left somewhat damaged. The Confederacy suffered a harsh defeat but in 19 BBY the Separatists attacked the capital again, managing to capture the Supreme Chancellor but this time, the Republic Fleet had many vessels in orbit and were able to rescue the Chancellor back while the Confederate Fleet retreated.
