The Confederacy Defense Forces or Separatist military is comprised primarily of droid forces from across a variety of corporate members in the Confederacy. The Confederacy lacks the centralized elements of the Grand Army of the Republic but makes up for it in sheer numbers due to the near limitless number of droids. The Confederacy also contains a number of planetary, sentient (non-droid) units which fight across the galaxy for the confederate cause.
