"You had better be right!"
"I am a droid. I am always right."
―Wat Tambor and TX-20 — (audio) Listen (file info)[2]

TX-20 was a T-series military strategic analysis and tactics droid who served the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars as a commander. He was assigned to the command of Wat Tambor, foreman of the Techno Union and Emir of Ryloth.

During the Battle of Ryloth, TX-20 and his forces conquered the Twi'lek city of Nabat, establishing a base camp in the city's courtyard and capturing the city's population. TX-20 was tasked with preventing the Republic from pushing their assault to free Ryloth, using the captured Twi'leks of Nabat as a living shield to prevent the Republic from launching reprisal strikes against droid forces.


TX-20 was a masculine tactical droid sent to the planet Ryloth as part of Techno Union Emir Wat Tambor's occupation force and conquered the city of Nabat. There, the droid served as commander and built a base camp, including a Separatist command center, in the city's courtyard. TX-20 protected the site with five proton cannons, and captured what was left of Nabat's population to use them as a living shield to protect his cannons.[2]


TX-20 is destroyed

After the blockade was destroyed, TX-20 was contacted by Tambor, who ordered him to prevent the Galactic Republic forces from landing their troops. The droid commander commenced firing his cannons at the Republic transports and gunships, however, the gunships were able to land. Sending recon droids to learn of the Republic's attack plan, he ordered his droids to release the starved gutkurrs—predatory insect carnivores—upon the clones. Although Kenobi defeated the creatures, TX-20 saw that Techno Union ranks were thin.[2]

The tactical droid prepared for a final attack, assuring Tambor that the clones had a minimum chance of victory. TX-20 led his tanks and droids against Clone Commander Cody's troops. However, he was then informed by one his battle droids that Kenobi was freeing the Twi'lek—natives of Ryloth—prisoners. He then turned his AAT tank around to confront Kenobi, firing on the Jedi General and destroying the remaining proton cannon. TX-20 held Kenobi and the Twi'lek youngling Numa at gunpoint, laughing as he believed he was victorious. However, he had failed to calculate the morale of the prisoners, who were reinvigorated by Numa's courage and swarmed his tank, dismantling him.[2]
