First seen in Attack of the Clones
, the jedi starfighter
is a modified Delta-7 Aethersprite light interceptor.
"Kuat Drive Yards has a proud heritage of serving the Republic, and the new Delta-7s we have specifically prepared for the Jedi order will continue that tradition," said Senator Lenoan of Kuati.
The Delta-7 does not have hyperspace capabilities. The Jedi starfighter however features a built-in astromech droid to provide damage control, power regulation, and nav-computer capability. An upgrade contains docking clamps and data-feeds to a separate hyperdrive booster ring.
An advanced Delta-7 does carry an onboard hyperdrive and does not require the booster ring.
