Astromech Droids were a type of maintenance droid that were used commonly as a repair unit for starships. As secondary purposes, astromech droids had the ability to override auto turrets, open sealed doors, and even reprogram other droids, other computer slicing activities, janitorial, and even messenger duties. Starfighter pilots were also known to have a personal astromech droid to aide in piloting their ships during the Clone Wars.

Appearance

All standard versions of Astromech Droids were 1.1 feet high in length and often had a cylindrical base. They also came in a variety of colors and designs, depending on the owners preference. Their colors included combinations of white, black, grey, blue, green, brown, orange, red and purple. The heads of Astromech Droids were generally conical, each series having different particular shapes depending on its model.

Equipment

These droids commonly moved on three wheeled feet, two of which were directly below powerful boosters that supported limited flight capabilities, however this was not always the case. Astromech Droids had a variety of built in tools, including buzz saws, electrical prods, fusion welders, hologram projectors, oil injectors, hidden compartments, claw like mechanical arms, fire extinguishers and many others, mostly different for each model and owner.
