The SD-K4a mini-assassin droid, also known as the probe killer, or the mini-assassin probe, was a model of assassin droid manufactured by Baktoid Combat Automata. Spider-like, the tiny, six legged droids could be carried inside the small pits on the head of the larger SD-K4 assassin droids.
Tiny, 0.14 meter-wide, six-legged droids, SD-K4a mini-assassin droids manufactured by Baktoid Combat Automata used their speed to avoid blaster fire, and while they did not possess the power of the "parent" assassin droid, however, if they could enter a target's armor, they were capable of killing said target with their sharp legs. A single assassin produced in excess of thirty killers, which swarmed together in order to overcome larger opponents.
