Can the T-wing or Toscan fighters be equipped with an astromech unit?

No fighter can be equipped with an astromech along the lines of what you are thinking.

I agree that some of the ships should have this feature, it is even portrayed in the pictures of some of them:

ARC-170 Aggressive Recon Fighter

Delta-7 Aethersprite

ETA-2 Actis-class Light Interceptor

N-1 Starfighter

X-Wing T-65

Y-Wing BTL-A4 Longprobe

Y-Wing BTL-S3

All of these ships are depicted as having an R-series slot for piloting/navigation assistance.

Thanks for clearing that up, everyone!


Second question: I see no droid in the picture of the T-wing or Toscan. DOes that mean in cannon/ SWC cannon they cannot use an R-Unit?

Stock models of each are not astromech-compatible, no. I'm sure you could modify one to accept a unit, but as they are in canon? They operate alone.

Why shouldnt you be able to modify, all you need is that socket interface thing. For all purposes you should be able to ducktape the R unit and just buy the R unit socket interface unit for any kind of the ship :D.

Id argue that it isn't that simple since Astromechs perform physical hardware repairs as well as software, therefore the position of the astromech can't just be anywhere. The design of the ship will be built around the astromech so that critical areas for repair can easily be reached from its mount. Engineers who designed ships without the requirement of an Astromech never had to worry about that during the initial design phase.

It would be a lot more complex than just retrofitting a plug.

For the sake of KISS, perhaps we can just assume that all astromech-capable craft just already have them installed. I mean, they're even already pictured that way >.>

What's KISS?

I prefer Simon over stupid, but yeah that's essentially it.
