The Aurek-class tactical strikefighter, also known as an A-wing, was the primary Republic starfighter, several models of which were used in the Old Sith Wars,[2] the Great Galactic War[6] and the New Sith Wars.


The Aurek fighter was a 9.2 meter-long delta-shaped starfighter armed with two heavy laser cannons and two proton torpedo launchers, capable of holding six torpedoes.[1] The fighter was capable of considerable acceleration and maneuvering, and had variable-geometry wings. They were easily refuelable and rearmable, thus driving down costs.[1]

Although the Aurek fighters saw combat throughout a time span of 3,000 years, they underwent extensive upgrades and revisions from one era to the next.
