The R5 astromech droid was created by the Industrial Automation sometime during the early years of the Clone Wars. It was created to give the droid's owners the ability to customize the droid, since it has a new head. The droid, however, only had a little bit more intelligence than the R4 Astromech Droid. Well know R5 droid include R5-S9 and R5-U8.
