L-2832 was a C-9979 military landing craft that served in the Navy of the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. Utilized as a troop transport modified with turbolaser armaments, the vessel was one of the Separatist transports commanded by Dark Acolyte Asajj Ventress to deploy Armored Assault Tanks and battle droids of the Confederate Droid Army. L-2832 was once used to deliver a battalion of the T81 Division to the surface of the coral moon Rugosa, where the battalion was destroyed by Jedi Master Yoda and three Coruscant Guardsmen.
L-2832 was a Confederacy of Independent Systems C-9979 landing craft—a four-winged Confederate Navy military transport outfitted with at least two wingtip and at least two turret-mounted laser cannons, as well more powerful turbolasers, which gave the transport more firepower than typical C-9979s. L-2832 was marked with angled black- and slate-blue–colored stripes on its wingtips, pairs of short slate-blue stripe stubs on each of the leading edges of the fore wings and the trailing edges of the aft wings, and a slate-blue zig-zag pinstripe that ran off each of the inner stubs and along the length of each wing.
Around 21 BBY, during the Clone Wars, L-2832 was commanded by Dark Acolyte Asajj Ventress to deploy one of the battalions from T81 Division to the coral moon of Rugosa in order to impress Toydarian King Katuunko of the benefits of Confederate protection. The T81 Division was considered by Ventress to be her best battle droid troops, and the battalion she deployed was led by OOM commander 224, and included Armored Assault Tanks, as well as troops of B1 and B2 battle droids, at least one B2-HA super battle droid, and at least one other OOM command battle droid. In a bid to prevent Jedi Master Yoda from securing a treaty with the planet Toydaria that would establish Galactic Republic supply lines through that area of Hutt Space, Ventress challenged the strength of the Separatist Droid Army against the skills of Yoda. The entire battalion was obliterated when Yoda and his three Coruscant Guard escorts divided and ambushed the droids, systematically destroying them.
