The Grand Army of the Republic
B1 Battle Droid
The B1 battle droid, sometimes referred to as the standard battle droids, is a model of battle droid manufactured by Baktoid Combat Automata and Baktoid Armor Workshop. Designed to resemble their Geonosian creators, the Trade Federation made extensive use of B1 battle droids and utilized them as their military force during the Federation’s invasion of Naboo. Ten years later, the Federation provided B1 battle droid forces to the Confederacy of Independent Systems for use against the clone army of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars.
B1 battle droids are the most common form of battle droid. They are vulnerable to EMP weapons, such as the electro-proton bomb.
B1s have three fingers on each hand, allowing them to perform manual-dexterity tasks. They typically charge towards their enemies, firing their hand-held blasters. B1s are also able to pilot and operate Single Trooper Aerial Platforms (STAPs) and Armored Assault Tanks (AATs).
