Altyr V was the fifth planet in the Altyr system.

History

Altyr V was the site of a battle during the Clone Wars, during which Clone Commander Deviss and his forces destroyed a Separatist ion cannon. Thanks to their actions, the Grand Army of the Republic was able to rout the Separatist forces and reclaim Altyr V for the Galactic Republic. When the Galactic Empire rose to power, the Imperial regime took over control of the planet.

During the Galactic Civil War, the New Republic established a base on Altyr V. In 10 ABY, Jedi Kyle Katarn was stationed there as a Captain with his then apprentice Mara Jade. During their stay, the Imperial Remnant began an assault on the planet.

The Republic forces found out that the Remnant had manned two modified asteroids, which they used to bombard the planet, pinning the Republic forces down until a large-scale assault could be staged. Kyle managed to travel to one of the asteroids and redirect its weapon to the other asteroid, destroying it. He then circumvented the weapon's cooling system, destroying the one he was on, barely escaping himself. It was during this mission he learned of an Imperial presence on Dromund Kaas, leading to his fateful brush with the dark side.

During the Second Galactic Civil War, representatives from Altyr V condemned the actions of the Galactic Alliance Guards raids on Corellian citizens on Coruscant.
