"Used to hang out with that mouthy tactical droid. What was his name?"
Han Solo on the L-1 tactical droid SV-3[src]

The L-1g general purpose droid,[7] also known as the L-1 general purpose droid,[8] L-1 general service droid,[1] or L-1g worker droid,[9] was a model of service droid commonly used for basic operational tasks. The droid was equipped with an AA-1 VerboBrain processor on par with that of a high-end protocol droid[1] and vertistile language processors.[10] Due to its capacity to calculate complex scenarios, some referred to the model as the L-1 tactical droid.[10] However, few bothered to use the L-1 unit to its full potential.[1]

In the year 14 BBY, the Scrapper Guild used L-1g units painted in blue with red stripes as foremen on the planet Bracca.[4] On the planet Corellia, in 13 BBY, units painted yellow with blue stripes were employed on shipyards for various menial tasks,[8] including disassembling hydro transfer conduit to clear a minnow blockage.[7] K-OHN was a L-1 tactical droid,[10] as was SV-3.[11]


Behind the scenes[]

The L-1g general purpose droid first appeared, albeit unidentified, in the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.[3] While the 2016 reference book Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide identified the model as the L-1 tactical droid, the 2018 reference book Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide identified it as the L-1g general purpose droid.[7] The 2018 reference book Star Wars: Droidography clarified that while some referred to the L-1g as a tactical droid due to its capacity to calculate complex scenarios, it was actually a model of service droid.[1]
