The ARC-170 starfighter is a fictional starfighter that appears in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. It is considered to be the technological forerunner of the X-Wing, and is also known as the Asterisk Wing (due to looking like one from the front).

The Incom/Subpro Aggressive Reconnaissance Craft, more commonly known simply as the ARC-170, was a space superiority fighter developed by the Galactic Republic during its mass militarization as a result of the outbreak of the Clone Wars. It was piloted by a crew of three Clone trooper pilots, two forward-facing and one rear-facing, and one astromech droid, usually an R4 model. It was designed primarily by the Incom Corporation for the Republic during the Clone Wars but deployed only in the later months of the conflict. The tri-foils of the fighter fold outward into a distinctive 'X' shape. The starfighter's two huge, round engines on either side of the craft and its wing configuration are reminiscent of other Incom models, such as the Z-95 Headhunter and the Rebel Alliance's famous X-Wing starfighter, and, judging by the differences in time the movies take place, are likely all part of the same series of ships, each replacing some of a previous model.

The ARC-170's wingspan was 22.85 meters and its formidable armament included two medium laser cannons, an aft blaster cannon controlled by a rear gunner, and a payload of six proton torpedoes.


The most famous use of the ARC-170 was during the Battle of Coruscant, when thousands of them, alongside Eta-2 Actis-class Jedi interceptors and Venator-class Star Destroyers defended the Republic capital of Coruscant against invasion. A clone pilot named Odd Ball, who flew an ARC-170, aided the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi in holding off enemy starfighters while Kenobi and his former apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, boarded the flagship of the diabolical Count Dooku and General Grievous.

Aleph-class starfighter

The aleph (also known as twees) was designed by the Galactic Alliance late in the Yuuzhan Vong War as a one-on-one match for the coralskipper. It relied on heavy shields, armour and weaponry to defend it from the variable weapons of the living coralskipper. It was described as a central pod, with two ion engines trailing behind it. Each craft required two crewmen: one pilot, and one gunner.

The Belbullab-22 is a fictional starfighter. It comes equipped with a hyperdrive and two ion drives, along with auxiliary thrusters. The ship features rapid-firing triple-laser cannons that put it on par with V-Wing starfighters. The dreaded General Grievous, who normally prefers hand-to-hand combat, pilots a well-worn version of this ship into space battles. After the death of Grievous Obi-Wan Kenobi steals the fighter and reunites with the starship of Senator Bail Organa. A modified version of this craft is the CIS Strike Bomber, featured in Star Wars: Battlefront II in space missions.

The Chir'daki (better known outside of Ryloth as the Death Seed) is a unique design of starfighter developed and used exclusively by the Twi'lek species. The fighter is actually an "Ugly" design, having been built using components from both the TIE/ln and the X-wing. Unlike typical "Uglies", which were haphazardly cobbled together from whatever parts were available, the Chir'daki was built according to a specific design and apparently had no more variation from one fighter to the next than would a factory-built craft. The S-foils of the X-Wing fighter are attached to a gyroscopic mount that is then mounted onto the main pod of a TIE fighter. The Death Seed uses the twin ion engines of the TIE for propulsion, and relies on the X-wing engines to power the lasers, hyperdrive, and shields. The resulting craft has a bit better maneuverability than the standard TIE, but is a little slower. The S-Foils do give the Death Seed the X-Wing's firepower, which is a grade higher than that of the TIE. The Twi'leks decided not to incorporate any concussion missile or proton torpedo launchers into the design, as those weapons were very difficult to acquire. All in all, the Death Seed is not a bad starfighter for a composite craft. It is unknown how many of these craft the Twi'lek have built, but it is not thought to be many.

The CloakShape fighter is a craft produced by Kuat Drive Yards. The CloakShape is one of the most enduring fighter designs ever developed by a single company. Designed decades before the Clone Wars and used more or less ever since, the CloakShape fighter was originally intended to serve as an atmospheric and short range space fighter craft. Armed with 2 medium laser cannons and a concussion missile launcher, they are adequate assault craft but best for planetary defense. They have no deflector shield generator or hyperdrive systems, however.

The CloakShape enjoys such widespread popularity because it is an incredibly easy craft to modify and upgrade to almost any specifications. Capitalizing on this design feature, Kuat Drive Yards has introduced several upgrade kits intended specifically for the starfighter. These include one that adds on a maneuvering fin at the back to increase handling in atmosphere - this has become so popular that many people believe that it was part of the original design specifications. Many others include ones that improve such systems as the sensors, targeting computer or power generator. Like the Delta-7 Jedi Starfighter and Eta-2 Actis Interceptor also produced by Kuat Drive Yards or its subsidiaries, the CloakShape can also dock with a specially designed hyperdrive ring.

Anakin Skywalkers Eta-2 interceptor The Eta-2 Actis Interceptor, sometimes known as the Jedi Interceptor, is a fictional starfighter from the Star Wars saga. ...


(It should be noted that in most external descriptions of the Cloakshape, including the current Wizards of the Coast Star Wars d20 roleplaying game, the Cloakshape's hyperdrive option is a sled rig that attaches to the back of the fighter. This rig is also capable of containing a limited shield generator and is almost always paired with the aforementioned maneuvering fin upgrade.)


The CloakShape's main drawback is its small power generator. It is too small to keep the craft running for extended periods of time, especially during battles. However, due to the easiness of the upgrading of this craft, even novice mechanics can fit a larger generator, more weapons, better engines or a deflector shield generator to allow this craft to serve as part of many militaries and mercenary group's space starfighter services for years to come.


Droid starfighter

The Droid Starfighter, also known as the "Variable Geometry Self-Propelled Battle Droid", is a sleek assault machine which can transform into either an airborne spaceship or into a land-based droid (hence its name). It is used by the Trade Federation before and during the Clone Wars, and, like the rest of the Trade Federation's armed forces, it carried no living pilot, rather, a droid brain which was linked to the Trade Federation Droid Control Ship. Each Trade Federation battleship carried 1,500 of these droid fighterships. The most famous use of this starfighter was during the invasion of Naboo, where they both acted as high power ground troops and starfighter screens for the droid control ships. According to Outbound Flight, they are controlled by multiple frequencies that make jamming impossible without jamming the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The Trade Federation invasion, and later occupation, force marches on Theed The Trade Federation is a fictional organization that exists in the Star Wars universe at the time of the Galactic Republic. ...

The starfighter carried four blaster cannons and two proton torpedo launchers and could reach 1,200km/h in a planet's atmosphere. When not in flight, the ship could transform into a walking weapons robot, used for ground patrol and troop support. It would move on its folded wings which each split in half to walk on four limbs and act much like a large mechanical four-legged creature. In this stance, it is often referred to as a droid rather than a starship especially as it has its own mind (although not a self-controlled one) and does not require a pilot to function in either its droid or its starship modes.[3] The fictional Star Wars universe features an intricate array of different weapons, whose uses and powers range from interpersonal combat to destroying entire space stations or even planets and solar systems in single sweeps. ...

The Fanblade Starfighter is based on Geonosian air patrol skimmers (Ginevx-class starfighters) which are also called "fanblades" for their distinctive and very vital feature, a fan like wing going all around from the top to bottom vertically.

The following is primarily a list of manufacturing corporations in the fictional Star Wars universe. ... A deflector shield is a fictional technology commonly found in science fiction. ... In the fictional Star Wars universe, the Confederacy of Independent Systems (CIS) is an organization that existed in the latter years of the Republic. ...


The fan deploys for combat mode, stretched in a half circle along a pair of boom arms. Atop each arm is a double laser cannon that when deployed into combat mode swings into place. When the arms are shut, the cannons will only point forward due to a limited hinge joint that locks them into place. When in combat mode, the cannons have limited movement. Combat mode is not the only mode for the "fanblade". The downside to the combat mode with its fan extended is that with the fan's exotic material, it also serves as a transmission plane for deflector shield energy. However, that is the problem: the shield energy makes it stick out on sensors. With the fan folded in, it is very difficult to target. To make it even harder to target, ion bafflers are installed in sublight engines. The fan also is similar to the one on Dooku's solar sailer, acting as an alternate form of propulsion, not that it matters, as the fanblade is fitted with hyperdrives for hyperspace travel, in addition to its standard sublight engines. Hyperdrive is a name given to certain methods of traveling faster than light (FTL) in science fiction. ...

The Geonosian Starfighter is a starfighter used by the Geonosians to guard their territories against intruders and as their main use of transportation. It was a lean, needle nosed fighter craft. The Geonosian starfighter was also a small, compact vehicle of great speed and superior agility. The engine and laser cannon are in self contained modular orbs that can be easily replaced or switched for different mission requirements. It is also considered to be a stealthy fighter due to the small amount of ambient glow the engines and weapons produce. A single Geonosian pilot sits within a small cockpit with his head poking up to see out of a transparent bubble canopy allowing 360 degree field of vision. The pilot is chosen as a pup and forms a bond with an individual starfighter. The Geonosians have never exported their starfighters to anyone, mainly because the fighter is especially tailored for a Geonosian pilot. The multi-axis controls require a Geonosian's dexterity and a special scent mask provides vital performance feedback by exploiting the Geonosian's acute sense of smell (which may or may not account for an error in the Star Wars: Clone Wars series, as a close-up on one of the fighters shows a Battle Droid piloting one). Its weapon is a turret-mounted laser cannon cradled underneath its forward needles. An array of about 100 micro-tractor beam projectors help to aim the laser beam. This small twin-pronged needle nose fighter is effective against intruders of Geonosian airspace. It is 9.8 metres long and its speed is 2,000 km/h. The fighter is composed of a highly flexible material which allows it to rebound from impacts that would fracture a more rigid craft. The Geonosian starfighter was first seen in the Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones where two Geonosian starfighters accompanied Count Dooku to his hangar. The two fighters are called "Beak-wing fighters" in the script, although they are not specifically named in the onscreen dialog.

Hornet Interceptor

The Hornet Interceptor is a starship frequently used by smugglers, pirates and other fringe groups. Named for its insectoid appearance, Hornets were cheap, yet capable starfighters. Unfortunately the fighters were vulnerable in atmosphere due to their poor aerodynamics.


Administrator Doole, the Ribet responsible for the prison uprisal on Kessel, acquired several of these fighters as part of the planet's defense fleet, and some were responsible for shooting down the Millennium Falcon. However, almost all of them were destroyed when Admiral Daala's Imperial fleet attacked the world, believing it to be a Rebel base. This is about the municipality in the Netherlands. ...


When the Peace Brigade faction aligned with the Yuuzhan Vong, they also procured several Hornets, in the mistaken belief that the ships vaguely organic appearance would impress the Yuuzhan Vong, who themselves hated machinery and embraced living technology.

The I-7 Howlrunner is made by Incom Corporation to show the Empire that it could produce a fighter that was comparable with the main fighter in the Empire. The Howlrunner was also used by a Jedi at the time of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. Unlike normal Imperial starfighters, it has shields. However, most Star Destroyer captains did not choose the fighter.

The bombs do not need to be restocked; a special energy generator begins restocking the bombs the moment the supply is depleted. Like with all Naboo starfighters, the N-1 was designed by Nubian engineers but is generally looked down upon by the peaceful Naboo for its destructive power. After the battle of Naboo, the craft was decommissioned due to its unpopularity and because it was very expensive to manufacture in large quantities.

What the Naboo N-1 Starfighter lacked in heavy firepower, the N-1 Bomber made up for. Its weapons have been especially reworked: the normal energy weapons are now lighter to allow for an upgraded Proton Bomb Launcher. This launcher extends the range of the standard proton torpedo, and includes a larger magazine, which makes the NB-1 a far better assault ship. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into List of Star Wars weapons. ...


Though it was powerful, it was highly unpopular with the pacifist people of Naboo, and was decommissioned before it could be mass produced. An extremely rare ship, the Naboo N-1 Bomber was produced in very small numbers, with only 30 serving with the Naboo Defence Forces.

(It can be noted in other sources that RSF officers and a Naboo Pirate lead separate forces to stop the flanking actions.)


Naboo NL-1 Light Starfighter

Not seen in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, the Naboo NL-1 Starfighter is a modified version of the Naboo N-1 Starfighter, addressing everything its older brother did not have. Whereas the N-1 needed specialized docking equipment, the NL-1 can use standard spaceports for docking and refueling.

It is also faster and more agile due to the same engines from the N-1 being used on its smaller frame. While most ships this size are weaker, the NL-1 is still a capable fighter, and outclasses newer designs, like the Z-95 Headhunter. An illustration of the Incom/Subpro Z-95 Headhunter. ...


Although small in number, more of this type have survived than the N-1, due mainly to its adaptation of using standardized spaceports, so it can dock and refuel even at citizen spaceports even when the military spaceports are closed.

It was designed as a defense vehicle for the unarmed yachts that the Nubian shipyards built at the time, but the Naboo N-1 Starfighter sold better due to its success at the battle of Naboo from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

With modest deflector shields and thicker hull armor, Clawcraft are slower at sublight speeds than their TIE Fighter progenitors. A standard pair of Imperial ion engines allow the ship to achieve a sublight speed of 1,000 kilometers per hour. Clawcraft make up for their lower sublight speed by greater maneuverability. Each curved wing can make minor position adjustments and is paired with a mounted control jet to allow a Clawcraft’s pilot to throw the ship into sharp turns and complex maneuvers.

Sublight Records has released albums by artists venetian snares, Richard Devine, Datachi, Doormouse, The Gasman, Enduser, The Flashbulb, Jason Forrest and others in the IDM, Breakcore Genre of experimental electronic music. ...


Another deviation from the standard TIE design is the fact that Clawcraft contain a Class 1.5 hyperdrive system, relatively fast for a vessel of their class. A unique hyperspace beacon system allows a Clawcraft to travel anywhere in Chiss territory without a navigation computer, although Clawcraft do possess basic navicomputers as a backup system. Hyperspace anchor points broadcast navigational data to the starfighter, allowing it to patrol Chiss space more effectively. One minor weakness of the anchor system is that, since Clawcraft are entirely reliant on the navigational beacons for hyperdrive transport, their navicomputers are capable only of very basic independent commands, making it difficult for a Clawcraft to travel independently through the galaxy outside Chiss space.


Some Clawcraft were used in various engagements alongside the New Republic in the war against the Yuuzhan Vong; in cases when Clawcraft left the Unknown Regions, the pilot would typically link his navicomputer to a Republic capital or other ship for navigation. Later in the war, some Clawcraft were upgraded to include more powerful navicomputers.[7][8]

Preybird-class starfighter

The SoroSuub Preybird is a fictional model of medium starfighter. It is a capable craft for attack and defense purposes, mounting a heavy laser cannon on each wing. Production commenced shortly before the Battle of Endor and continued for a number of years. The design was primarily meant for export, rather than use in Sullust's own defense forces. Late in the Galactic Civil War, the Imperial Remnant procured Preybirds for its fighter wings because it could not devote manufacturing facilities to build TIE fighters; those facilities were dedicated to building starships for the Remnant's naval forces.

Scarab Starfighter

The Scarab was an experimental concept by the Trade Federation. It began its life as a prototype that became widely accepted even before the Clone Wars, and acted as a forerunner in design to the more deadly Droid Starfighter deployed in the Invasion of Naboo. The Scarab performed quite well in combat testing and was introduced to the Trade Federation starfighter forces only months after the first prototypes rolled off the assembly lines. It was armed with 4 laser cannons, the same as the Droid Starfighter, but to save production costs the energy torpedo launchers were deleted. Like the Droid Starfighter it could open and close its wings to disguise its combat nature until the last minute. As on almost any craft, the shields reduced maneuverability and so the craft was not as agile as the Droid Starfighter was. It did gain one large advantage: instead of the solid fuel slugs used in its contemporary, the Scarab used conventional ion engines, giving more or less unlimited flight time.

Scimitar Assault Bomber

The Scimitar assault bomber was a replacement to the slow and bulky TIE bomber. During Grand Admiral Thrawn's campaign to retake the Galaxy Core from Ysanne Isard and the New Republic, the Scimitar Assault Bombers were developed as a new generation of TIE Bombers. The Scimitar Assault Bomber has a single elongated body and the pilot and gunner sit in a forward shaped module which can eject from the craft and serve as an escape pod. The Scimitar Assault Bomber is supported by two large elongated array wings on either side. Interlocked repulsorlift thrusters provide it with additional maneuverability. In space, the Scimitar Assault Bomber is faster than any TIE Bomber and in planetary atmospheres it can travel at 1,150 km per hour and its divebomb speed is 1,250 km per hour. It is 8 metres long and thus is longer than the standard TIE Fighter. Its weapons are laser cannons, concussion missiles, thermal detonators, proton bombs and proton grenades. It has a crew of two.

The Galactic Federation of Free Alliances is a fictional government from the Star Wars novel series, more commonly called the Galactic Alliance for short. ...


The StealthX is mainly for use on stealth and recon missions but could also be taken into battle because of the laser cannons and torpedo launchers that have been retained. However, the launchers have been upgraded and are able to fire a variety of ordinances such as glop bombs, which explode and fill the surrounding area with a quick hardening foam, the modified bunker buster bombs, which have a concentrated thermal detonator in the first stage that breaks through the bunker wall and a second stage that contains a more powerful thermal detonator, that was used on a surprise raid on a Chiss base.


In operation, the StealthX comm system usage is severely limited, to the point that it is usually only used in emergency situations, since an active comm system can give away the presence and/or location of the StealthX. Jedi, who can open themselves to a battle-meld, virtually eliminate the need for a comm system all together, which is why the ship (to this point) has only been seen piloted by Jedi in combat situations.


Swarm-class Battle Droid

In the fictional Star Wars Expanded Universe novel The Truce at Bakura, the Swarm-class Battle Droid was the Ssi-Ruuvi equivalent to a starfighter. It is about 2 meters long making it one of the smallest starfighters. Because of their size, Ssi-Ruuvi vessels can carry hundreds of them into battle. They are also easy and cheap to produce. They are pyramid-shaped and armed with 4 laser cannons located on each corner making them very dangerous. These laser cannons can be turned through 360 degrees thus giving the droid a wide field of fire.

Trifoil fighter

The trifoil fighter is a fictional medium starfighter from the Star Wars Universe. It was produced by the Yevetha, a fierce and technologically adept race that inhabited the Koornacht Cluster in the Deep Core. Its systems were probably configured for Yevethan physiology. It had an angular shape, and sported three laser cannons and no missile systems. It also had a velocity of 12 sublight units, but had no hyperdrive.

V19 Torrent Starfighter - starwars.com

Prototypes of the Slayn and Korpil V-19 Torrent starfighter were first introduced at the Battle of Geonosis. Having proven their worth as an assault fighter with exceptional speed and maneuverability, the Republic quickly produced V-19s to add to the arsenal of the growing clone army. Because of the months of training it took for the Republic's clone trooper pilots to become proficient with the vessel, the fighter was not available in large numbers for some of the early engagements of the war, but they made a prominent showing during the Battle of Muunilinst. Initially designed as a short-range fighter, Republic technicians later added a Class-1 hyperdrive to equip the vessel for escort missions. The ship is unique in that it has two pairs of folding airfoils that give the ship added maneuverability and provides pilots with easy access to the ship's sliding canopy. The lower split airfoils coupled with enhanced repulsorlift engines make the ship an exceptional vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) fighter.

It sports four laser cannons, possible missile launchers, deflector shielding, and a hyperdrive. It consisted of a triangular fuselage in the center reminiscent of that of the Jedi Starfighter used in the Clone Wars. The cockpit was at the narrow end. Four mobile S-foil wings were attached to the fuselage - two to the left and two to the right. In combat mode, they were forty-five degrees away from each other on each side, and 22.5 degrees away from the equator of the starfighter. The twin ion effleux drives were mounted on elongated cylinders that extended behind the fuselage towards the back of the starfighter.

Yorik-Et

Yorik-Et (more commonly referred to as coralskippers) are vehicles that are mainly dedicated to interstellar dog fights by the Yuuzhan Vong. They are a type of bioship made of coral, as their name implies. They are grown on planets that have been biomodified by the Yuuzhan Vong and contain only biological forms of control, as technology is seen as blasphemy to the Yuuzhan Vong, as is the phrase "biotechnology."

Descriptions vary, but they are usually described as being shaped like apple seeds and being black or purple in color. The front of the craft is usually drawn with a series of wrinkly tubes that lead to a barrel at the front of the craft. An elliptical structure wraps around the top with the back of it pointing back and slightly upturned. In the embedded ellipse, there is a cockpit. A coralskipper does not appear on standard scans from a starship: scanners must be tuned towards biological targets to identify any Yuuzhan Vong ships.


The primary weapon is a conical extrusion that fires streams of molten asteroid that are highly destructive to the Republic and Imperial starfighters. The dovin basal can also be used as a weapon or a shield. When used for defense the Dovin Basal creates a singularity that absorbs all local energy and matter. In effect a miniature black hole, the gravitational pull also diverts missiles. This use can exhaust a Dovin Basal leaving a ship vulnerable after heavy use. To attack ships that stray too near, the Dovin Basal creates a focused singularity that draws in shield energy, rapidly draining power cells in the enemy starfighter as it attempts to compensate for the loss. For other senses of this word, see black hole (disambiguation). ...

The Z-95 Headhunter is a starfighter that was designed jointly by Incom Corporation and Subpro Industries several decades before the Clone Wars. Considered one of the most capable fighters of its day, it boasted a distinctive bubble canopy and two sets of blasters mounted at the ends of its two wings. Its sleek, yet rugged, design was attributed to Seti Ashgad, an engineer in Incom's Hyperdrive Design Division. This work is copyrighted. ... This work is copyrighted. ...

The Z-95 is smaller in size than its successors: the ARC-170, designed during the Clone Wars; and the T-65 X-wing, designed shortly before the outbreak of the Galactic Civil War. While the Z-95 still enjoyed considerable use in the years following the establishment of the New Republic, it was clearly outclassed by fighters developed in the decades since its original release. When compared to the T-65, it is slower, less-maneuverable, has lighter armor and shielding, and is not as heavily armed. Yet it is fairly inexpensive and reliable, making it a favorite amongst smugglers, Outer Rim organizations, local system defense forces and bright-eyed youngsters with dreams of becoming fighter jockeys.

The New Republic (officially The New Galactic Republic) is a fictional government in Star Wars. ...


Owing to its longevity, it is not surprising that many variants of the Z-95 have come into existence due to the efforts of starship mechanics and hotrod pilots throughout the galaxy; these include a split-wing version, a courier version that can accommodate a single passenger, variants with various alternative weapons loadouts, and a trainer version that was commonly used by the Rebel Alliance until replaced by the T-65X, the trainer variant of the X-wing. In the fictional Star Wars universe, the Rebel Alliance, or more formally, the Alliance to Restore the Republic, was an interstellar political resistance force formed in direct military opposition to the Galactic Empire. ...
