Slayn & Korpil
Blaster Cannons, Concussion Missiles
A tough, aggressive short-range fighter, the V-19 Torrent experienced an expanding role throughout the Clone Wars. originally intended as an assault fighter configured to destroy an enemy capital ship's fighter escort, it quickly graduated to planetary assault at the Battle of Muunilist, and then to escort and defense after a retrofit added a small hyperdrive engine. Complex controls kept it from being deployed as widely as the ARC-170, but it still formed a significant proportion of the Republic space forces.
