Background: The V-19 Torrent starfighter, also known as the V-19 Torrent Interceptor, was a model of starfighter manufactured by Slayn & Korpil. They were used by the Republic Navy during the Clone Wars.

It served as a predecessor to the Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing starfighter, in terms of its usage and purpose.

V-19 Torrents were developed to compensate the LAAT Gunships effectiveness against droid fighters. In the early stages of the war, Anakin Skywalker led a squadron of V-19 and Y-wing bombers against the Separatist vulture droids in the Corvair sector.

V-19 fighters were also present during the Battle of Christophsis where they engaged droid fighters over the planet as Anakin and Obi Wan used their starfighters to break through the Separatist blockade so they can land on the planet. More V-19s were also present engaging Vulture droids when more Confederate Navy ships arrived, making Admiral Wullf Yularen unable to deliver reinforcements.

V-19’s would later be replaced by Aggressive ReConnaissance-170 starfighters, though V-19’s participated in a few battles such as the Battle of Malastare where they escorted Y-wing bombers and ARC-170 starfighters to assist in the dropping of the electro-proton bomb. They also provided escort to Duchess Satine’s ship, the Coronet following a skirmish orchestrated by Tal Merrik, who wanted to kill Satine so Death Watch can invade Mandalore. Several V-19’s were also present in Mace Windu’s flagship, the Endurance, where Clone pilots used them to evacuate just as the ship was about to be destroyed by Boba Fett in a revenge plot against Windu. V-19’s also participated during the Battle of Kamino where they defended Republic ships from Hyena-class Droid Bombers, and also participated in the Battle of Sullust, engaging droid fighters scrambled by a fleet led by Asajj Ventress. V-19’s also acted as aerial security over Kamino’s cloning facilities. They also participated in the Battle of Coruscant where Odd Ball had a few of them shoot down droid tri-fighters to clear the way for Skywalker and Kenobi. During the reign of the Galactic Empire, these fighters were used by planetary defense forces, including the Botajef Defense Force, which mounted a rebellion against the Empire.
