Indeed. HK droids are not war droids, or battle droids even. They are cunning assassins, usually relying on surprise and ambush to eliminate their prey. It would probably be an even match, except that the Sith have lightsabers and force powers, and the HK droids will probably make heavy use of flamethrowers, grenades, etc.

Quite a big portion, but if the factory is destroyed, she will have a much better chance of winning, or at the very least survive longer.
This is not the type of battle which can be committed to halfway, and both sides will know this. The victor would secure a significant advantage, unless their own forces were so devastated in the attempt as to be rendered combat ineffective.

Consider their outside assets as well. What reinforcements can be committed to the fight if necessary?

Can a feint be executed? Are there secondary targets that may be engaged during the fight, either to draw off enemy reinforcements or to ensure damage to the enemy's infrastructure?
