Various starfighters

A starfighter, or simply called fighter, was a small and maneuverable spacecraft designed for combat in the atmosphere or space. Bombers, such as Y-wings, could be considered starfighters as well.[1]

HistoryEdit

During the Clone Wars, the Jedi used Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptors, Delta-7B Aethersprite-class interceptors, and the subsequently developed Eta-2 Actis-class, while the clone trooper pilots under their command flew the V-19 Torrent starfighter, the ARC-170, the Z-95 Headhunter and the V-wing. The Separatists used droid starfighters like Vultures, tri-fighters, and Hyena bombers, but also built fighters for their commanders, such as the Belbullab-22 starfighter, the Rogue-class, and the fanblade starfighter.

The Imperial Military inherited the starfighters of the Republic Navy, but by the time of the Galactic Civil War, it was reliant on the TIE line, as was its successor, the First Order Navy. Contrastively, the Rebel Alliance Starfighter Corps used a variety of classes like the A-wing, B-wing, X-wing and the Clone Wars-era Y-wing.[2]

By the time of the First Order–Resistance conflict, the New Republic Starfleet used the T-85 X-wing. The Resistance's Starfighter Corps used an older model, the T-70 donated by sympathetic senators, which was seemingly the only fighter they used.

Starfighters unique to certain cultures included the Naboo N-1 starfighter; The Geonosian Nantex-class; The Mandalorian Kom'rk-class fighters and Fang fighter; the Huttese HH-87 Starhopper, and the Umbaran starfighter. The Corellian Engineering Corporation designed the VCX-series auxiliary starfighter to attach to their VCX-100 light freighters.
