“Roger, roger.”—Typical response of a B1 battle droid
B1 Battle Droids, also called standard battle droids or simply "battle droids" were battle droids manufactured by Baktoid Armor Workshop and Baktoid Combat Automata, which were both owned and contracted by the Trade Federation.
The B1 battle droids were the footsoldiers of the Trade Federation Droid Army and saw extensive use under their merchant masters, eventually participating in any battle involving the shipping conglomerate. They were mainly seen during the Invasion of Naboo. During the Clone Wars, the Federation was among the commerce guilds and business conglomerates who secretly signed as a member of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, providing the secessionist movement with various military assets. The "clankers" would form the backbone of the Separatist Droid Army and fought against the Clone Troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic, which was led by Jedi Commanders. At the end of the conflict, the droid armies were given a shut down command and the Trade Federation became a puppet government under the Galactic Empire. Nevertheless, B1 battle droids would still be used by smugglers, mercenaries, pirates and rebels as well as training droids for Imperial Academies.
