Confederacy of Independent Systems
An insidious weapon unveiled by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the later stages of the Clone Wars, buzz droids are tenacious saboteurs launched onto enemy starfighters via specialized missiles. When the missile achieves an optimum proximity to its target, it fragments to unleash a cloud of melon-sized metal spheres into the target's flight path. The spheres attach themselves to a target vessel, popping open to reveal an insect-like droid equipped with cutters and other tools of vandalism.
The buzz droids are designed to disable, not destroy, enemy craft. They operate quickly, slicing into starship hulls and severing vital control linkages. While their tools are effective, they are relatively weak and vulnerable to damage. A hit to its central eye can knock a buzz droid out of commission.
Even though it's a joint development, Trade Federation must play some part.
