Affiliation

The ARC-170 starfighter was a heavy-duty model of starfighter in use by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. It was manufactured by Incom Corporation.[1] During the Battle of Coruscant, Clone Commander Odd Ball led a squad to protect Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi on their mission to rescue the Supreme Chancellor. Several participated in the battle of Cato Neimoidia and, following the battle, shot down Jedi Plo Koon when Sheev Palpatine ordered them to execute Order 66. During the early years of the Galactic Empire, ARC-170s continued to see use in the Imperial Navy.[4] It was a successor to the Clone Z-95 starfighter and the predecessor of the X-wing starfighter.

Behind the scenesEdit

The ARC-170 was named after "ART-170," the title of the artwork form by concept artist Ryan Church that inspired the finalized design. Originally, it was referred to simply as a "clone fighter" in the script for Revenge of the Sith.

The HUD seen on Odd Ball's ARC-170 cockpit during the Battle of Coruscant has the same targeting display as Luke Skywalker's X-wing in A New Hope.[3]
