In 22 BBY, a battle was fought between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems in orbit of the planet. A Republic naval task force regrouped in Bothawui Prime's orbit after several vicious confrontations with a Separatist fleet led by General Grievous. They were the only line of defense between him and Bothawui itself. As Grievous's frigates swooped in to attack the Republic cruisers, groups of AT-TE walkers hidden on the asteroids of Bothawui Prime's rings, opened fire on the vessels' unguarded sterns and turned the tide of battle, helping to stop his assault on Bothawui.
