Background: B1-series rocket battle droids, also known as B1 rocket battle droids, rocket battle droids, or pod hunter droids, were a modified version of the B1-series battle droid used to hunt down and destroy enemy escape pods.
During a series of attacks launched by the Separatist Subjugator-class heavy cruiser Malevolence under the command of General Grievous and Confederate Head of State Count Dooku in the first year of the Clone Wars against the Galactic Republic, five B1-series rocket battle droids were used as a means to hunt down any and all survivors that may have escaped their vessels aboard escape pods. However, during a battle in the Abregado system, which saw the destruction of Jedi General Plo Koon’s fleet at the hands of the Malevolence, the rocket droids and their Droch-class boarding ship were destroyed by Koon and three clone troopers that had survived the battle.
Rocket battle droids saw later use on Florrum in 20 BBY, during Grievous’s invasion of the planet.
