The Viper recon droid, also known as the Ringneck recon droid, was a model of probe droid manufactured by Arakyd Industries. It was used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Viper recon droid,[1] also known as the Ringneck recon droid,[4] was over 1.65 meters in height,[5] and sported a large, bulbous central photoreceptor alongside several smaller ones that dotted the probe droid's main body.[2]

Manufactured by Arakyd Industries,[1] the droid was visually similar to the Separatist probe droid, a small probe droid model with a contractible photoreceptor used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars.[6]

History[edit | edit source]

The viper recon droid was used by the Separatists at the prison complex on Lola Sayu during the Clone Wars.[3]

In the Imperial Era, the droid was used by the Galactic Empire on its occupied world of Lothal. There, the probe droid patrolled Imperial installations alongside the smaller sentry droids and TIE fighters.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The viper recon droid first appeared in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Counterattack." It again featured in the early-2015 mobile game Star Wars Rebels: Recon Missions, where it is identified simply as a "Probe Droid." It would not be until the late-2015 reference book Star Wars Rebels: Visual Guide: Epic Battles that the droid is given its official name.
