R2-F2 was an R2-series astromech droid[4] manufactured by Industrial Automaton[3] that served in the Alliance to Restore the Republic,[2] though it was suspected of being a double agent. The astromech droid was assigned to Biggs Darklighter,[5] who flew as Red Three during the Battle of Yavin. Both Darklighter and R2-F2 were killed when their T-65B X-wing starfighter was shot down by Darth Vader.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

R2-F2 first appeared, albeit unidentified, in the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.[2] It was first identified in the Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game Core Set,[4] which was first released at GenCon Indy on August 17, 2012.[6]

The 1999 reference book Star Wars: The Action Figure Archive, written by Stephen J. Sansweet, conflated Biggs Darklighter's then-unidentified astromech droid with R2-Q2,[7] an identical Imperial astromech droid that appeared on the Tantive IV earlier in A New Hope.[2] This error was repeated by the Star Wars: The Saga Collection toyline.[5]

R2-F2's color scheme varies as depicted in Star Wars: Empire and Star Wars: Rebellion comic series.
