droid starfighter

During the Battle of Naboo the Trade Federation attempted to counter any shortcomings in their vulture droid by dispatching them en masse. Swarms of the tiny fighters were launched from their battleship's hangars, attacking the small number of Naboo starfighters defending the planet.

As the Clone Wars erupted, and the Trade Federation became founding members of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, they supplied their vulture droids to the growing Separatist fleet. Painted with the blue and white hexagonal sigils of the Confederacy, vulture droids would plague Jedi and clone pilots on many battlefronts, including the decisive Battle of Coruscant.

From the Expanded Universe

The Xi Char cathedral factories of Charros IV manufactured a vast number of precision-engineered droid starfighters for the Trade Federation. The development of advanced technologies is a religion to the Xi Charrians of the Haor Chall order, and the droid starfighter is testament to their devotion.
