The ARC-170 starfighter was a heavy-duty model of starfighter in use by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. During the Battle of Coruscant, 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 shot down Jedi Plo Koon when Sheev Palpatine ordered them to execute Order 66. It was a successor to the Z-95 Headhunter 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.
