R3-A2 was an orange R3-series astromech droid. It was seen in the Rebel base during the Battle of Hoth in 3 ABY.
Like other R3 droids manufactured by Industrial Automaton, R3-A2 was designed for high tech work on military installations. The clear plastex dome shows off a newly-updated Intellex V computer system, which contained detailed statistics on thousands of military starships. R3-A2 could hold up to 5 hyperspace jumps in active memory, and could also coordinate piloting coordinates and approach angles during combat. His eye was a round kind unlike most R3 units.
Card Text/Abilities Edit
- If a ship equipped with R3-A2 performs a secondary weapon attack that says “perform this attack twice,” this ability can only be used on the first attack because the target is not declared again during the second attack. (X-Wing FAQ, Version 4.2.1, Updated 07/01/2016)
- R3-A2's ability triggers at the end of the "Declare Target" step.
