The Victor-wing Fighter was a model of starfighter.[1] Several Victor-wing fighters ambushed the Windfall after the freighter stole a shipment of spice from the Hutt Clan.[2] At least one Victor-wing Fighter was part of the Citizens' Fleet that fought at the Battle of Exegol, assisting Resistance forces in their fight against the Sith Eternal forces.[3]


Behind the scenes[]

It was initially designed for 2015's Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens as the ship used by the criminal organization Kanjiklub,[4] but it did not appear in the final film.[5] Due to time constraints at the time, the ship's design was created by kitbashing other ships together.[4] The fighter eventually appeared for the first time in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story.[6] The ship was later identified in the video "Every Ship in the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy," posted on the StarWarsKids.com Youtube channel in 2020.[1]

The ship was initially referred to as a V-wing, which shouldn't be confused for the V-wings that appeared in the prequels; however, as several models of the same name already existed, it was later renamed after Victor Starspeeder, a character created by Jarrett J. Krosoczka for the Star Wars: Jedi Academy novel series.[7]
