These droids were equipped with two short blades, arm-mounted blasters, and a shield that could block lightsabers. In addition, they possessed a built-in repulsor pack allowing them to hover on the battlefield and gave them a high degree of mobility allowing them to either harass enemies from a distance or charge at them in close quarter combat.
There were high hopes for the design, but it was easy for clone troopers to shoot them down because they had a weak spot on their wings. If one was shot, then it lost control.
A number of air battle droids were present on the Invisible Hand during the Battle of Coruscant. These units were destroyed by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker when they boarded the Providence-class carrier/destroyer to free Supreme Chancellor Palpatine of the Galactic Republic.
