“Secretly bolstered by an array of corporations, the Separatist Alliance stands in stark contrast to the Galactic Republic. Rather than ships crewed by Jedi and clones working for a common cause, the Separatists’ deep pockets give them the freedom to fight with faceless fleets of mechanized droids. Still, organic beings make up a large chunk of the Separatist high command and it is not uncommon for them to dictate the faction’s larger strategy. “

Meet The Fleet

The First ship up is the Munificent-Class Comms Frigate. It doesn’t pack quite the same punch as a Star Destroyer, but it’s got solid shields and a good engineering rating. These ships are tougher than they might look. They are also support the deadly Vulture-class Droid Fighters as well.


And if you’re feeling spicy, you can take the Haor Chall Prototypes for your droid fighters to really put the hurt on their targets:

The Munificent-Class also has the option for titles to take as well. Here we have a look at two of them that can be added to your fleet:

Now, in terms of who will be in charge of these fleets you’ve got a few other options as well. Count Dooku is one such option:


Alternatively, if you want to keep your fleet mosty organic-free, why not run with the super tactical Kraken droid?

The Droids can also bring some extra crew along for the ride as well. Check out Wat Tambor – a masterful engineer. Or pack in the Battle Droids!

The best part is that you’ll be able to assemble your fleet very soon as the Separatists are slate to ship out on December 4th!
