|Industrial Automation's R6 droid was the first new model to be released after the fall of the Empire. IA saw it as a chance for a "new beginning" after the failure of its R5 series.
Like the R5, the R6 was intended to be a cheaper alternative to the R2. Unlike the R5, the R6 delivered. It had the sensor and equipment package of the R2, the practicality of the R4 and was still nearly as inexpensive as the R5. The R6 even topped the R2's capabilities in astrogation, storing up to 12 hyperspace jump coordinates. It quickly became as much a success as the R5 had been a failure.
