Characteristics

An R5, R4 and R7-series astromech droid.

Development of the R7-series was a corporate secret, occurring during the media blitz that surrounded production of the R6-series astromech droid. The R7-unit featured two fixed, wheeled legs and a third retractable leg, and were heavily shielded against electrical discharges. These droids were primarily used onboard FreiTek, Inc E-wing starfighters, and required significant modification to work effectively with the X-wing or Y-wing starfighters. A typical R7-unit could hold up to fifteen hyperspace jump coordinates in its astrogation buffer and survive a near miss from an ion cannon.

A pirated version of the R7's advanced droid brain was also incorporated into the Imperial XR-85 tank droid.

Notable units

Behind the scenes

If R7-A7 and R7-F5 are R7-series astromech droids, that causes a continuity problem, for R7 units were not made until after the Battle of Endor, however, the two droids could just be prototype versions of the R7 series Astromech Droid.
