While clearly Dooku convice the government one worlds not join Republic be under their protect. He made statement that droids out number clones thousand to one. Statement fail take account tons first Israel air force know fight 15 to 1 this not taking account stealth technology which make even more lethal. Israel tank commander able fight 15 to 1 odds against Syria tanks until at least reforcement arrive which point Syria basic bad shape.
Also confendery of independent system use military effective those commando droids why they not man guns Confederacy warship. To be fair most target they trying hit are big and hard to miss even for even for B1 Battle droids deal enemy fighters were armed with missile relative lethal. Some battel droids armed with missile also relative lethal when came to anti vehicle warfare that we saw in attack of the clones.
However effective of unit per unit combat is not to underrate at all. Question individual clone destroy 1,000 answer come down more units. Ankin Skywalker tactic depend battle Junior officers be poorly effective to say the least. Basic they depend speed to over power the Serpentine forces. Know we do not get see entire detail of this fight to know happen other one Clone chip trigger order 66 go off let execute of Jedi general basic response for failure of the attack. We do not know what Droid army response was to such rush attack however fact they nearly successful according general Trench. Suggestion junior officer play role in near defeat also able to make judgment call Clone seem to be better comes us evierment around them as weapon. Go three S speed, surprise and stealth. Average clone depend battle might will make back able destroy over thsuand battle driod per unit or more.
Other taking account is this both sides need deregulate the banks order to fund war. Which suggestion two side even match some degree or at least cost how fighting was such were push war push the two side bankrupts. Of course neither side operation maximin effectiveness for most part. Jedi not operation own Starfighter group for most part or order 66 would killed lot few Jedi knights. For that matter Generel Gerives would gonner if Jedi strike force send against the Malevolence since Jedi having no trouble fly his defense. What is surprising is that know question way Jedi used in the war. Militery logic it made little sense. Clone lead own unit good degree while Jedi general was so what useful it question how useful they were.
First thing take into account real only get see small part of the battle of Klendathu argument three possible reasons why did not see them
FIrst the bugs took out.
Second it was longer campaign special force might been top priority to save defense lines could moved order to save with cover fire which is most likely take into account Rico was not killed and with out help he should have one could argue main star that rule is the main star never died .
Third possible of course is there was none and that Rico survival because was main star.
I say most likely second that they did have combat forces that were used to act as cover fire retreat force and special force were give top priority
My theory in general why normal Starfleet personal did not wear armor or us personal force fields has do most time real risk of mission Starfleet officers face. Unless on Star Terk TV shows your like kill follow crew member hand phaser setting to high level because body armor or personal force field then you are hit by enengry base weapon. Also advance able move faster in general. Last reason have to do simple effective are personal force fields or body armor. Two security officer we saw Nor batte to the strong were at least knock out possible killed. The borg are only able adapt to phaser setting and higher the setting the harder time have adapt to it.
Of course this does not go into Federation peace keeping force. In the alternate reality, Christopher Pike described the United Federation of Planets to James T. Kirk as a peace-keeping and humanitarian armada in 2255. (Star Trek) . All likelihood use both ground personal and Federation navy portal and starships.

We know some Rebel ships escape the battle at Scarff. No reason per say Leia send message Rebel Base that they the Death star plans but, Milliennium Falcon likely bug. Give Han Sola have the ship carry money Han Sola and just go.Study details of Death star at Yavin IV.Were likely found less costly plan to destroy the Death star rather losing get number their best pilots. In practice the Death star had many weakness if battle Scarif questionable justified after all the thermal exhaust port was only one many weakness it biggest weakness factor depend X-9 heavy turbolaser battery and ship size Millennium Falcon fly right in. You could fit something like X-9 heavy Turblaser on ship even smaller Millennium Falcon with the Rebel able to make makeshift. Rebel Fleet attack in that way it like per say destroy this does even go into in theory commandos. This weakness Rebel found about relative early. This also beside point main question why did Millennium Falcon not drop Rebel on Rebel ship.
