"This can't be happening!"
―Overseer Juhm, as the bombers are destroying his shipyards.

The Battle of Gwori was a battle during the Clone Wars in which Anakin Skywalker had to pinpoint the location of a Confederate shipyard on Gwori. Once there he had to call on a bomber strike to destroy it. However, his Padawan, Ahsoka Tano sneaked abord the mission when she wasn't supposed to. Together, and with help from Obi-Wan Kenobi, they not not only had the bombers destroy the shipyards, but they freed a number of experienced ship builders.

Prelude

After suffering a major defeat at Nexus Ortai, the Republic decided to attack the shipyards at Gwori, under the command of the Muun overseer, Juhm. However, there was a problem, the droids had developed a machine where only droids could pass through harmlessly, not to mention a whole blockade of Munificent-class star frigates. So Anakin Skywalker proposed that they freeze themselves in carbonite in order to bypass the Separatist blockade. Once there, Anakin, his Padawan Ahsoka Tano, and Obi-Wan Kenobi delivered the shipyard coordinates to Jedi Masters Plo Koon and Saesee Tiin.

Battle

"What is happening?"
―Juhm, just moments before the shipyards collapsed

In order to bypass the Separatist blockade, the 2 Jedi masters and the Republic bombers would have to perform a precision hyperspace jump. Little did they know that the shipyards were full of slaves. In the meantime, Skywalker, Kenobi, Tano, and Rex were captured. However, with the help of R2-D2, they escaped. Once the bombers arrived, the Jedi decided to escape on a Separatist frigate. However, the bombs took out their shields. Moments after Skywalker led the stolen frigate away from the shipyards, Tiin was about to blast it until Kenobi contacted him and told him not to blast it. Plo Koon then ordered the bombers to strike the construction supports. Once they were done, the shipyards collapsed. Once in space, they were almost killed by the separatist's radiation beam, until Plo Koon and Saesee Tiin destroyed the beam.

Aftermath

The Jedi had escaped, the shipyards were destroyed, and Count Dooku ordered Asajj Ventress to kill Overseeer Juhm. Darth Sidious said that it was no major loss however. Back on Coruscant, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine had once again been impressed by Anakin's work. The ex-slaves now could build warships with fair pay and happiness.
