"Master Windu still fights on Dantooine"
―Palpatine[src]
Battle of Dantooine

Battle-of-Dantooine

Conflict
Date
4 months after the Battle of Geonosis
Outcome
Republic victory

The Battle of Dantooine happened four months after the Battle of Geonosis, resulting in a Republic victory.

The Battle[]

The battle erupted on Dantooine when clones and B2 super battle droids began to clash in a vast, open plain. The Clones used PLX-1 portable missile launchers to destroy scores of droids, while the droids used their missile launchers to shoot down many gunships. Due to the large numbers of droid forces, many Clones were lost in the fighting.

Seismic tank attacks

With Master Windu at their side, the clones slowly began to gain the upper hand. At this point the Republic army was outnumbered nearly four to one. However, the battle was suddenly turned upside down with the arrival of a large siege weapon—the seismic tank.

This tank used its seismic driver—used for mining operations in peaceful days—to cut a swath through the clone trooper ranks, either crushing them outright or sending soldiers flying from the shock wave, killing many of the Republic's forces.

Retrieving his lightsaber amid another seismic shock wave, Windu flew towards the seismic tank. Windu cut his way in, disabled the seismic driver, destroyed the tank's droid crew, and knocked out the controls. Flying clear, Windu watched as the seismic tank smashed into the ground and exploded. After he landed, a small boy gave him a bottle of water. The battle was won.
