"I am more than just a pilot!"

WAC-47 was a masculine-programmed[3] modified DUM-series pit droid[1] who served the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. He was a part of D-Squad along with several other droids on an important mission, serving under Colonel Meebur Gascon and piloting his ship.

WAC-47 was programmed as a pilot, but felt he was capable of more. He repeatedly referred to Gascon by the incorrect rank of Corporal, apparently as a part of a "program glitch." He did not get along well with Gascon at first, as he treated the droids as property,[3] though they eventually came to understand and respect each other and WAC was promoted to Corporal by Gascon.[4]

During the Clone Wars, WAC-47 served in the 91st Recon Corps, reporting to Clone trooper Commander Neyo.[3] In 19 BBY,[5] WAC was drafted into Colonel Meebur Gascon's D-Squad. WAC arrived late for Master Windu's briefing on their mission at the Jedi Temple. WAC assigned to pilot their shuttle. During the initial start of their mission, WAC piloted on a collision course to get the Providence-class Dreadnought's attention. After boarding the dreadnought, WAC was able to distract the battle droids stationed at the dreadnoughts vault. After acquiring the Encryption module, WAC and the rest of the squad were then confronted by the dreadnought's super tactical droid, Aut-O. Together, they were able to put him out of commission and escape from the dreadnought.[2]

Enroute to Coruscant, WAC and D-squad's shuttle ran into a comet storm. Despite the difficulty, WAC was able to get the shuttle out of hyperspace. Unfortunately, the shuttle crashed on Abafar. WAC attempted to take command of the squad, but the unit abandoned him and Gascon. Together, they then discovered a Void strider stampede and use it to reach Pons Ora and rejoin the squad.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

He is voiced by Ben Diskin.

A possible Easter Egg occurs once WAC receives his "promotion," as the WAC Corporal was a rocket used during the early days of the U.S. Space Program.

  5. Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide states that the Onderonian Civil War began 22 years before the Rogue One mission, and that it ended 19 years before the mission. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Rogue One mission to 0 BBY. Therefore, the Onderonian Civil War began in 22 BBY and ended in 19 BBY. Because the end of the war was depicted in "Tipping Points," the events of the episode must be set in 19 BBY. StarWars.com Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link) establishes that the events of "Secret Weapons" take place after "Tipping Points" and before the events of "Eminence," which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY. Therefore, the events of "Secret Weapons" must take place in 19 BBY.
