The First Sparks
The V-Wing, also known as the Nimbus fighter, is a short-ranged starfighter. It was introduced by the Republic Navy late in the Clone Wars. After the Clone Wars the V-Wing became the primary starfighter used by the Empire.
It is not hyperdrive capable but can be docked with a hyperspace transport ring for long-distance travel. The V-Wing does not provide life support, pilots must wear a sealed flightsuit.
