Within the Star Wars universe, R2-KT has made appearances onboard military vessels preparing for battle. She has been seen in multiple Star Wars books and even has her own Hasbro action figure.
In season five of The Clone Wars, we'll see another pink droid. Revealed by Dave Filoni at Celebration VI, this pink droid sports an expanded paint scheme and is named QT-KT. This droid is one of a handful that joins R2-D2 on a mission to disrupt separatists forces. You can see more preview images of these droids at Rebelscum.

You might ask, "What would a pink droid be doing in a war?" If this were World War II, the answer would be "helping to win the war."
World War II is filled with wild stories and legends that are often so bizarre, I couldn't make them up if I tried. But when the world is at war and times get tough, even a seemingly crazy solution is worth a shot. That was the case for the pink fighter planes seen flying through the skies of Europe. Pink was discovered to be a very effective camouflage during dusk or dawn, especially for reconnaissance planes under cloud cover and even ships & trucks.

So next time you see R2-KT on TV, in a book, or doing good work in the public, don't forget that this little pink droid might actually be the 501st's secret weapon.
