The Army Air Corps, often abbreviated as AAC, was the Starfighter Corps of the Imperial Army. It consisted of airspeeders and TIE series starfighters detached from the Imperial Navy's Starfighter Corps. The AAC was primarily concerned in ground attack and air support missions to support Army operations.[1] TIE fighter pilots who flew "in the blue" for the Air Corps were nicknamed "Groundhogs".[3]
