R2-X2 was a green and white[5] R2 series astromech droid that served in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire.[2] In 0 BBY,[1] it was at the Alliance's headquarters within the Great Temple on the moon of Yavin 4 and attended a briefing by General Jan Dodonna on the Alliance's plans to attack the Imperial Death Star superweapon. R2-X2 was then later loaded into the astromech socket of a T-65B X-wing starfighter in the temple's hangar bay which soon launched as part of Red Squadron to destroy the Death Star.[2] It flew with Theron Nett as Red Ten[6] but both were killed when their X-wing starfighter was shot down.[2]
