"I am more than just a pilot!"

WAC-47 was a masculine-programmed DUM-series pit droid 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,[1] though they eventually came to understand and respect each other and WAC was promoted to Corporal by Gascon.[3]

During the Clone Wars, WAC-47 served in the 91st Recon Corps, reporting to Clone Trooper Commander Neyo.[1] In 20 BBY,[4] 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 ice comet swarm. 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 and use it to reach Pons Ora and rejoin the squad.[3]

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.
