I distinctively remember these from Battlefront II. It used to confuse me that such small ships, fragile looking ships were uses as the tanky bomber class.
I had a toy one of these, THE F'N WINGS WOULD NEVER STAY ON GOD IT MADE ME SO MAD! But I loved the design.
The V-wing is easily my favourite prequel fighter. I love the fact that they were an early predecessor (along with the Jedi Eta fighter) to the TIE series.
