One of the droids joining R2 for the adventure is a new pink droid, QT-KT. This pink astro droid is actually the second pink robot to be seen in The Clone Wars. R2-KT, the memorial droid built by the R2 Builders club for 501st Legion founder Albin Johnson's terminally ill daughter Katie, has been a force to reckon with in the Star Wars community since young Katie's passing in 2005. Not only has the real-life droid made appearances around the country - the pink astromech has been turned into a Hasbro action figure, featured in numerous Star Wars books, and even episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars
World War II is filled with wild stories and seemingly crazy ideas. 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.
