Description: R3-T2 (Arthree-Teetoo) was an R3-series astromech droid who was the property of an abusive crew of pirates. By the year 0 BBY, R3-T2 had escaped its owners and roamed the streets of the desert planet Tatooine's Mos Eisley spaceport, avoiding capture by its former masters.
Manufactured by Industrial Automaton, R3-T2, also spelled "Arthree-Teetoo," was one of the few R3-series astromech droids to avoid service aboard the warships built during the Galactic Civil War. For many years, the droid was the property of an abusive crew of pirates based in Mos Eisley, a spaceport located on the desert planet Tatooine.
Finally at the end of its electronic tether, R3-T2 escaped from its tormentors by 0 BBY and was a refugee from that day forth, constantly roaming the spaceport to avoid capture, though its owner remained a mystery to some. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, the droid was wandering the streets of Mos Eisley when it passed an X-34 landspeeder carrying Tatooine locals Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The astromech droid R3-T2 had a mostly red dome, white body plating with blue trim, and a black photoreceptor. Unlike most R3 units, R3-T2 did not have a clear plastex dome.
R3-T2 was equipped with an Intellex V droid brain. Its former masters enhanced the astromech droid with an increased memory capacity, as well as special programming that made it equally capable of enhancing or sabotaging a starship's hyperdrive systems. The droid was adapted for survival on Tatooine, a desert world.
