Vassek 3, also known as the third moon of Vassek, was a remote moon that orbited the planet Vassek. During the Clone Wars, it was home to General Grievous's fortress.


Located in the remote Vassek system of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories,[1] Vassek 3 was a moon that orbited the planet Vassek.[3] Its landscape was marked by craggy, moss-covered canyons filled with dense fog.[2]


During the Clone Wars, a conflict fought between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, a Republic task force traced a frigate stolen by Viceroy Nute Gunray of the Trade Federation to General Grievous's fortress on Vassek 3. Infiltrating the castle, the Repubcli forced were all but destroyed by the Kaleesh warlord and his forces. The survivors, Jedi Master Kit Fisto and his astromech droid, R6-H5, only narrowly escaping Grievous and his IG-100 MagnaGuards.[1]
