The R5 series astromech droid,[5] also known as the R5 line[6] was a model of R-series astromech droid[2] manufactured by Industrial Automaton.[1] Cut-price versions of superior R2 units,[3] they were low cost, but prone to malfunctions,[7] defects and bad attitudes.[3] Standing 0.97 meters in height[4] they generally had shorter, cone-shaped heads[8] and were equipped with repair arms.[3] Their reputation was so bad that their manufacturer, Industrial Automaton, had to pull the model from the market to save their own reputation.[1] R5-D4 was one of the last units produced in the R5 line.[7] R5-D8[9] and S4 were R5 droids that served the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War.[10]
