The Starfighter Corps was the starfighter branch of the Galactic Republic that was organized under the Republic Navy, although it was considered a separate fighting force. The Starfighter Corps participated in the Clone Wars against the Confederacy of Independent Systems in a wide range of conflicts.

History[edit | edit source]

Early history[edit | edit source]

The Starfighter Corps of the Galactic Republic was a separate fighting branch and was active in the Clone Wars against the Separatist Alliance.[14]

Legacy[edit | edit source]

When the Republic was transformed into the Galactic Empire, the Republic Starfighter Corps was reformed into the Imperial Starfighter Corps, and was reorganized under the Imperial Navy due to the navy's new doctrine that relied on capital ships.[14]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Organization[edit | edit source]

The Republic Starfighter Corps, although administered by the Republic Navy,[1] was considered a separate military branch of the Republic Military.[14] There were various squadrons that were under its auspices, including Blue Squadron and Group Two,[2] Clone Flight Squad Seven,[3] Gold Squadron,[4] Shadow Squadron,[7] Razor Squadron,[5] and Red Squadron.[6]

Vehicles[edit | edit source]

As a Starfighter Corps, the branch contained a vast array of starfighters and bombers in its war effort against the Separatists. Initially, V-19 Torrent starfighters were commonly used as the mainline craft,[10] until they were mostly replaced by ARC-170 starfighters[8] and Clone Z-95 Headhunters.[9] By the end of the war, the ARC-170 remained as the main craft of the corps,[8] which was also supplemented by Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing starfighters.[11]

Interceptors were also used, primarily by Jedi Generals and Jedi Commanders. These interceptor starships included Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptors[8] Delta-7B Aethersprite-class light interceptors,[10] and Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptors.[8] Bombers like the BTL-B Y-wing fighter-bombers were also deployed,[7] as were Cord-class starfighters.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Starfighter Corps of the Republic first appeared in the 2005 Star Wars saga film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, albeit unidentified.[8]
