Confederacy Star Wars Ships : Geonosian Starfighter

"The last Human who tried to fly one of our ships crashed into the N'rakti Lava Fields. Your pilots would fall out of the sky like damp moths."
―Archduke Poggle the Lesser to Count Dooku

Confederacy of Independent Systems

Nantex-class territorial defence starfighter

When Count Dooku fled the engagement of the Clone Wars, a pair of Geonosian starfighters provided escort and covering fire.

Many of these starfighters were used during the opening stages of the Battle of Geonosis. A number of these craft, accompanied by Vulture droid starfighters, were sent to intercept the Acclamator I-class assault ship Aken, which was carrying thousands of clone troopers who were accompanying the Jedi Master Yoda's mission to rescue those Jedi fighting in the Petranaki arena in the wake of their attempt to rescue Obi-Wan Kenobi , Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala.

As the battle wound down, a pair of these craft protected Count Dooku from the pursuing LAAT/i carrying Obi-Wan and Anakin, as he fled to his personal hangar ahead of the impending Confederacy rout. As the target of assassination by Delta Squad, the Geonosian lieutenant Sun Fac attempted to flee his homeworld aboard a Nantex fighter, but he was shot down by the clone commandos before he could get away.
