In total, how many droids were killed/destroyed in the Clone Wars? I need to know so I can crunch numbers and get a kill-death ratio for clones.

    A. All of them. – Valorum Aug 15 '15 at 1:32
  • I'm honestly very tempted to VTC this, because there's absolutely no references I'm familiar with that even come close to answering this. That said, even though I'm a Star Wars junkie, I'm sure there's sources I'm not familiar with...I just doubt there is an official answer (or even enough info for a reasonable guess). – Jeff Aug 15 '15 at 1:45

    Presumably you only want to know the number of droids destroyed by the clones? You'd need to know how many droids were produced over the course of the war, minus the number deactivated by Vader at the end of the war. And you'd have to somehow discount the number destroyed by Jedi. None of these numbers are going to be easy to obtain, and uncertainty in each will make the final calculation even more uncertain. – Null Aug 15 '15 at 2:42

    But we can get a idea of the scope of the conflict, as we know clone numbers. 200,000 + a million more soonish. The process to get a trained clone from nothing took like a decade. And at most that first attack on main enemy stronghold (that overwhelmed them) was 200,000. Most battles/wars, when you have a decent general, do not end in massacres. And the clones were always the clear dominate power, from my understanding. So well under a million, likely. At most probably around the million mark, if it was a real meat grinder of a war. – Jonathon Aug 15 '15 at 3:25

    @JonathonWisnoski a minor point, but if you're referring in your first comment to AoTC, the cloners only state to OWKenobi that an additional million "units" were almost ready to be produced; a "unit" could refer to an individual or a group of unspecified size. So the clone army could be considerably more than several million. Unless you've found an official source that gives a more precise body count? – Meir Illumination Aug 15 '15 at 9:38
