"Last night, 60 Arakyd AAD-4 assault droids entered Viper Tower just prior to the end of the business day quickly eliminating ground-floor security units."
―"Sensor Technology Dispute Settled in Takeover"[src]

The AAD-4 was a line of[1] fourth-degree[2] assault droids manufactured by Arakyd Industries. Hulking, humanoid droids[1] strong enough to lift a Vulptereen off the ground by their neck, they had bronze plating and were equipped with a pair of black photoreceptors.[3] Shortly before the outbreak of the Clone Wars[4] in the year 22 BBY,[5] Arakyd sent 60 AAD-4 assault droids into Viper Tower, headquarters of Viper Sensor Intelligence Systems,[3] during its hostile corporate takeover of VSIS,[4] which quickly eliminated its ground-floor security units. A garrison remained in order to assist with the transition.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

The AAD-4 assault droid was originally created for HoloNet News Vol. 531 50, a HoloNet News article written by Pablo Hidalgo and Paul Ens with illustrations by Joe Corroney and released on April 4, 2002.[3] Its design was derived from early battle droid concept art developed by Doug Chiang for Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace.[6]
