The Free Virgillia-class Bunkerbuster, also known as the Bunker Buster, was a type of corvette model constructed by the Corellian Engineering Corporation and used during the First Order–Resistance war by the Resistance. Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo commanded a Bunker Buster known as the Ninka for the Resistance.
The Free Virgillia was a class of corvette. It was armed with powerful bunker buster plasma bombs, turbolaser turrets that had dedicated power outputs, and a complement of bomber craft or a squadron of A-wing starfighters that could dock on its reinforced pylons.
They were in use as of 4 ABY. The Resistance used the bunkerbuster Ninka commanded by Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo in 34 ABY. The Ninka served as an escort for the Resistance flagship Raddus during the attack on the Resistance fleet, where it was destroyed when it ran out of fuel and fell into range of the pursuing Supremacy.
