Capsule: The R6 was the first astromech droid sold by Industrial Automaton after the fall of the Empire. It was built to redeem Industrial Automaton's image after the failure of the R5, and priced to sell in the turbulent economy of the New Republic. Its most impressive feature was the 12-jump memory capacity in RAM. The droid sold very well, until the rise of Grand Admiral Thrawn and the return of the struggle between the Empire and the Republic.
