The V-19 Torrent is composed of mostly white and dark red, with some grey and black pieces. The main features of the V-19 Torrent include a sliding cockpit window, two flick-fire missiles, and adjustable wings and legs for landing and attack formation.
The cockpit can be accessed by pulling the cockpit window forwards allowing it to slide on the smooth plates beneath it. Within the cockpit is a blue chair to seat the Clone Pilot at the helm with a 2x2 control panel in front of it.
Manufactured by Slayn & Korpil, V-19 Torrent fighters were flown by the Clone Pilots of the Republic against CIS fleets. They were heavily armed, with torpedo launchers and laser cannons. They also featured hyperdrives. Cad Bane once flew one whilst escaping from a Republic ship.
They made up a significant portion of Jedi General Anakin Skywalker's fleet onboard his flagship, the Resolute, especially during the Malevolence Crisis. They were armed with two laser cannons and missiles, which were capable of independently acquiring and pursuing their own targets. Although their prototypes were a huge success, the fighters were not available in mass quantities during the early engagements of the war due to the months it took to train pilots to use them skillfully, though they were mass produced by the Republic.
- This set was once sold at Tesco for £25.99 and then for the drastically reduced price of £7.99 due to proving unpopular in the UK.
- A V-19 Torrent appeared in a Star Wars Brickmaster set.
