Jedistarfighter detail

Anakin Skywalker's Jedi starfighter during the first half of the Clone War.

The Delta-7B Aethersprite-class light interceptor was a unique class of starfighter used by the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars period. This design was developed in the years preceding the outbreak of the Clone Wars prototypes of this short range fighter class were in testing under the watchful eyes of talented Republic engineers and Jedi like Saesee Tiin and Adi Gallia around the time of the invasion of Naboo. These initial tests proved fruitful and the fighter went into production and became a powerful tool for the Jedi Order being issued to those Knights and Masters on field missions with the traditional markings of the Republic Judiciary department. However later during the war as Jedi used there fighters for more combat missions personal starfighters were customized with different equipment and colors.

As some of the Delta-7's were destroyed in battle they would be replaced with newer Delta-7B's, an upgraded class, which were virtually the same in all respects save for their changes in the socket for astromech droids.

Though the fighter was short range a hyperdrive ring allowed for extended distance missions.

Armament

The ship was relatively lightly armed with its primary weapons being two twin laser cannons. These cannons were mounted on either side of the cockpit. Later as fighters became more customized bomb drops and seismic charges could also be seen onboard these fighters.

These fighters were single man spacecraft and thus featured no passenger space. A single astromech droid could be attached, in the original Delta-7 this socket was off to one side where as in the upgraded 7B this socket was centered in front of the cockpit. This feature allowed the Delta-7B to use different more advanced designs of Astromech droids.

History

Saesee Tinn's Starfighter

Saesee Tiin's Delta-7B Starfighter.

The starfighters were used heavily through out the Clone Wars by many Jedi including Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, and Kit Fisto. Saesee Tiin , Adi Gallia , and Kit Fisto provided air cover for republic gunships to fly to the surface of Lola Sayu to rescue a strike team carrying coordinates for hyperspace lanes known as the Nexus Route. Plo Koon led an assault on Kadavo to rescue Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, and Captain Rex along with many slaves from a Slaver facility. Eventually the Delta-7B Aethersprite-class starfighter was replaced by the Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor.
