Background: The Lothal astromech droid was a model of astromech droid manufactured by Lothal Logistics Limited. Although they were not considered to be on par with the more advanced astromech models from Industrial Automation, Lothal astromech droids were considered decent enough. The droids had mostly white bodies and transparent domes that revealed some of their inner mechanisms, much like the Industrial Automatons R3-series Astromech droid.

Very loosely modeled after the design of the R3-series astromech droid, the Lothal astromech droid was perfectly capable. Like the droids of the R-series, it consisted of a barrel-shaped body with a transparent domed head and three limbs, one on both sides of the body and a shorter retractable foot beneath. Due to a lack of complex components and its low construction price, Lothal astromech droids were relatively light compared to other astromechs. This resulted in them being fairly easy to kick over and made them vulnerable to dust storms.

Behind the flat lens cover of the droid’s dome was a single-lens photoreceptor. Lacking the Intellex V of the R3 series, the model’s basic droid brain was also visible within its dome and could hold the coordinates for a single hyperspace jump and the return journey. Its databanks could be loaded with the technical specifications of various starships and vehicles. Alongside several other access ports, a port for a holocam was built into the dome. Still, no actual camera was included within the base model, which was obvious due to a lack of connections to the port within the dome.

The Lothal astromech droid’s boxy feet offered less clearance than those of the R-series but were reliable, if somewhat noisy. The model had a clunky but reliable drive system that, like all of the systems in the Lothal astromech droid, could be easily accessed for repair or replacement. The base model came with a limited toolset hidden behind protective panels, including an arc welder, an electro-prod, a universal computer interface arm, and a manipulator arm. Other toolsets were available to allow the droid to be customized.
