A-Series Assassins

Assassin Droids are a class of droid unit that were designed to hunt down and kill certain targets that their masters programed them to. Some Assassin droids were given such extreme programming and independent control minds that they would go rogue and destroy their masters, as seen with IG-88 and the other IG-88 Units. During the Clone Wars assassin droids were banded by the Galactic Republic, but Holowan Mechanics, a droid manufacturing group, ended up making units of IG-86 Assassin Droids for sell to criminal organisations, like the Black Sun, along with Baktoid Combat Automata, which created the BX-Commando Droid and the A-Series Assassin Droid, that was sold to both criminal groups and also occasionally to the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the rule of the Galactic Empire, assassin droids were placed into the Imperial Army, creating units like the BT-1 and 0-0-0 Assassin Droids that would be inputted following the Tarkin Initiative.
