The R6 Astromech droid was the upgraded model of the previous R1,R2,R3,R4, and R5 Astromech Droids created by the Industrial Automation. Like all upgraded Astro droids, it was created to give the droid a newer look along with a larger intelligence span than the other astromech droids. It was released sometime after the Battle of Endor for the New Republic.
