Hey everyone, before you read the rest of this caption go check out @starwars.archivist! This post is part of a small collaboration we are doing this week! "Although the Clone Wars were over, some people never seem to get the message. The worst case of denial was Gizor Delso, a Geonosian Separatist who'd somehow escaped Lord Vader's efforts to wipe out the remnants of the CIS. Lord Vader tracked him to Mustafar, and brought us in to finish the job." ― Unidentified 501st stormtrooper.
The Battle of Mustafar was an isolated battle on Mustafar that took place between the Galactic Empire and Separatist holdouts in the early years of Imperial rule. The engagement was fought by the Imperial 501st Legion under the command of Darth Vader, against a secret droid army controlled by Gizor Dellso.
Gizor Dellso was a geonosian engineer who escaped the assassination of the separatist council by Darth Vader. Dellso fled to Mustafar where he activated a droid factory and began creating battle droids. He even had plans for a new type of superior battle droid. Once Lord Vader learned of this he sent the 501st to take out Dellso and destroy the factory.
When the 501st arrive they were met by a small fleet surrounding the planet. The 501st made quick work of the fleet and was able to breakthrough to the planet below. At Darth Vader's unusual request, a pilot flew into the enemy hangar and stole one Belbullab-24 strike bomber. The fighter was then brought to the Imperial hangar for closer study.
When the 501st landed on the planet they were greeted by a vicious attack. Droids waited from small windows and other areas in the base to assault them. The 501st was able to push their way in and take out the droids. They then destroyed various schematics for the prototype droid Dellso had been working on. All that was left was to take out Dellso. The Geonosian was well guarded and put up a challenge, however the 501st was able to defeat him and kill him. After a beacon was planet and an orbital strike followed, destroying the facility and the remaining droids.
