After completing the annihilation of the Vong, the remaining Imperial ships turned back against the Seperatists, only now the numbers were more evenly stacked. The remaining torpedo sphere directed its fire against the mothership, moving constantly closer and closer until it was firing at point-blank range. The remaining SSDs charged into the Seperatist fleet, not bothering to maneuver to avoid breaking their tips on the battleships. The remaining TIEs, whose numbers had been halved by the vong, began a desperate battle against the streams of droid fighters. The star destroyers also moved in as close as they could to the seperatists, and created a suicidal bloodbath of ships tearing each other apart at close range. On Kothlis, the Imperial army hit the seperatists like a bolt of lightening from all angles. The immense force of troops and the smaller walkers flooded the confederate lines, charging over the defenses and splitting the orderly lines of droids with their reckless and random tactics. The Tank Droids and AT-ATs moved closer and closer to the enemy lines. The largest weapons aboard the walkers and Tank droids were directed at the conquerer droids. The force of hundreds of particle blasts, each strong enough to level a hardened bunker in one shot, combined with the walker's high-powered lasers drowned out most of the noise of battle and created an incredible pyrotechnic storm across the confederate lines. The few remaining air cruisers were not about to be left out of this and contributed their part to the wall of fire as well. The medium-sized vehicles and walkers targeted the Seperatist's vehicles and deflection towers, to drive holes in their heavily reinforced lines. The army of darktroopers marched fearlessly into battle, arranged shoulder-to-shoulder. Their jumpjets propelled them over the confederate defenses and into the heart of the droid army, where they dispatched droids with their armored hands and feet. Whenever they were confronted by anything larger than a SBD, they would employ their shoulder-mounted rocket launchers to eliminate the problem. A cloaked shuttle slowed to a halt over the capitol city on Kothlis. The bottom access ramps opened, sending out a force of royal guards and darktroopers. The elite group marched through the streets and sought out the CIS's leaders in their command bunkers. The small army identified the most likely location for the bunker, then began to drill and blast through the walls to enter the facility.
