A battle for control of the planet Felucia took place between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems around the second year of the Clone Wars. When the Confederate General Grievous and the Dark AcolyteAsajj Ventress seized Felucia with the Separatist Droid Army, 2 Jedi Generals and a Jedi Commander, were dispatched to lead a clone trooper detachment of the Grand Army of the Republic to maintain the Republic's foothold on the world. However, the Jedi and their forces were soon overwhelmed by the deeply entrenched Separatist troops, and Republic reinforcements were sent to extract the Jedi and the clones from the contested world.
While the Republic Navy's Hunter Squadron and several Star Destroyers in their assault group attacked the large Separatist blockade surrounding Felucia, 2 other Jedi Knights took a squadron of LAAT/i gunships with starfighter escorts to rescue the Jedi and clone troopers on the embattled surface. Although Kenobi, Skywalker, Tano, and the remainder of their battle group were able to evacuate from the planet with Koon's team, the Republic's failure to hold Felucia hampered the Grand Army's efforts in the entire sector.
