The V-series supervisor droid was a droid model produced by MerenData as a measure to save face with the galaxy after the failed EV-series supervisor/interrogator droid line. Unfortunately for MerenData, this line failed as well.
Marketed directly to the Imperial military, the V-series lacked the MDF motivator that caused many EV-series to go psychotic. The Galactic Empire bought several of these droids to run its droid pools, but was not generally impressed with the model.
Even though the line failed in the eyes of the Empire, V-series droids could be found at several high profile locations, such as on the Death Star I, on Executor, and overseeing the construction of the Death Star II.
One such V-series droid was AV-6R7, who served aboard Executor.
There were several variants of the V-series. One variant featured a design similar to that of the EV-series supervisor droid, albeit with black plating and a streamlined head. They stood at approximately 1.8 meters in height with a humanoid build. They lacked the MDF motivator that caused their predecessor to develop a sadistic personality. The other version features a rolling base instead of legs, along with extending arms capable of being used in self defense. Its head more closely resembled that of its predecessor and was produced in brown plating.
