The Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing starfighter,[5] also known as the Alpha-3 Nimbus or V-wing starfighter, was a starfighter model manufactured by Kuat Systems Engineering.[1] They were first deployed by the Galactic Republic in the final days of the Clone Wars[2]—serving in the Battle of Coruscant against the Confederacy of Independent Systems—and continued to see use under the Galactic Empire. V-wings were also utilized as escort fighters for Darth Sidious's personal Theta-class T-2c shuttle.[6] In the following years, V-wings were gradually replaced by TIE/ln space superiority starfighters. The Alpha-3 Nimbus was little more than a single pilot fuselage pod sitting on vertically stacked ion engines flanked by deployable, heat radiating, stability foils. The V-wing was designed for speed and agility, at the expense of a reliable life support system or hyperdrive. The pilot instead relied on a sealed flight suit in case of ejection.[7]
