The Battle Droids (also B1 Battle Droids or Clankers) are Military Droids that are produced as a cheap and expandable organic soldier substitue. Being the successors of the OOM-Series Battle Droid, the B1's processing power was limited in comparison to theirs to further reduce the production costs. Mainly, the Battle Droids are produced to swarm an enemy with it's huge numbers, not leaving them any chance to play out the advantages that an organic soldier possesses. The more sophisticated Destroyer Droid and Super Battle Droid alongside the common Battle Droids made the droid armies of the Trade Federation and the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the wars with the Galactic Republic under Hiram Drayson so successful.
