"With all due respect, General, if someone comes to our home, they'd better be carrying a big blaster."
"I concur with Captain Rex, sir. This is personal for us clones."
Captain Rex and Commander Cody, to Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]

The Battle of Kamino was fought during the Clone Wars between the Jedi-led Grand Army of the Galactic Republic and the Droid Army of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Separatists launched the battle as one of their key campaigns during the war, hoping to capture Kamino and eliminate the cloning facilities in Tipoca City, thus depriving the Republic from creating more clone troopers for their army. The Separatists, led by General Grievous and Asajj Ventress, were repelled by the Republic.

PreludeEdit

"The clone planet of Kamino will be a dangerous target."
"Just make sure you hold up your half of the mission. We must stop the production of new clones if we are to win this war.
"
Asajj Ventress and General Grievous[src]

Following the destruction of Rishi Station[5], Jedi Generals Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi intercepted a transmission between Confederate General Grievous and assassin Asajj Ventress. They were planing an attack on Kamino. Thus, Skywalker, Obi-Wan, Commander Cody, Captain Rex and the troopers of the 501st Legion were then sent to reinforce the blockade and General Shaak Ti's forces at the cloning facilities in Tipoca City.[3]

During this time, Ventress and her forces were hiding in Kamino's oceans aboard Trident-class assault ships. There they awaited Grievous's arrival.[3]

The battleEdit

Space distractionEdit

"I'm going to press the attack, Master."
"No, Anakin. Wait! It's too easy. Not even Grievous would attack so recklessly."
"Master, the battle's up here in space, not down there."
"The debris from the destroyed Separatist ships is the key.
"
―Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]

When Grievous's fleet approached Kamino, the blockade under Admiral Wullf Yularen held the line against the Confederate fleet. Skywalker and Broadside then led the fighter squadrons against the fleet. Grievous sacrificed his larger transports to protect his command ship. When debris from Grievous's fleet fell into the ocean, Ventress ordered her aqua droids to assemble the assault crafts.[3]

However, General Kenobi suspected that debris was a clue. So, Kenobi took a Kamino sub down into the ocean to investigate. There, he discovered the aqua droids assembling the assault crafts. Kenobi was then attacked by several of the aqua droids. He was then forced to abandon the submarine. Kenobi was then saved by a Aiwha.[3]

Assault on Tipoca CityEdit

The Trident assault ships then came out of the ocean and attacked Tipoca City. The aqua droids under Ventress then led the attack against the clone troopers under Commander Colt and his fellow ARC Troopers Havoc and Blitz. General Grievous then landed with his battle droids. After killing Colt, Ventress and Grievous discuss their plans. While Grievous would attack the clone barracks, Ventress would secure a sample of the clones' DNA.[3]

During this time, troopers Fives and Echo were acting as snipers. They were then given grenades by 99 after Havoc was killed. They then found a group of Clone cadets and took them to the barracks. Once there, they were joined by Captain Rex and Commander Cody. Together, they prepared to fight Grievous's forces. When battle droids were about to enter the barracks, Cody, Rex and the others were able to attack them. Grievous was then confronted by Kenobi and the two dueled. They fought until they got to a platform where a Trident assault ship destroyed the platform. Grievous thought Kenobi had fallen to his death, but was actually saved once again by an Aiwha.[3]

Ventress then entered the DNA room and retrieved a DNA sample. However, she was then confronted by Skywalker. The two then fought until Ventress lost the sample and was surrounded by clone troopers. As Skywalker was about to let his troopers execute Ventress, Grievous came in a flight pod. Ventress was then able to board the Pod and retreated.[3]

During this time, Rex, Cody, their troops and the clone cadets were able to destroy the battle droids. However, 99 was killed in the cross fire. Blitz and several ARF troopers then destroyed the last Trident assault ship.[3]

AftermathEdit

For their actions during the battle, Echo and Fives were then promoted to ARC troopers.[3]
