During the later years of the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker flew a Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor.

CharacteristicsEdit

Anakin Skywalker's craft had bright yellow markings similar to his previous Delta-7B and the podracer he piloted as a child on Tatooine.

HistoryEdit

JediInterceptors

Skywalker's Eta-2 alongside Kenobi's Eta-2 interceptor at the Battle of Coruscant.

With the arrival of the new interceptors, Anakin began using this starfighter instead of his yellow Delta-7B. He flew his Eta-2 in numerous battles during the closing days of the Clone Wars, proving time and again his superiority as a pilot. Often at his side was his former Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, in a gray and maroon-colored Eta-2 interceptor. Although he was impressed with Anakin's skill, Obi-Wan often remarked on Anakin's reckless piloting. Obi-Wan and other Jedi were also concerned about Anakin's obsession and possessive attitude toward the ships he had for personal use. Saesee Tiin, however, often encouraged the young Jedi Knight to continue making modifications and enhancements to his ships.

Around 20 BBY, he used this fighter on Cato Neimoidia after the Separatists launched an attack on the planet. During the battle, a Discord missile was fired at his ship, causing a swarm of buzz droids to land on it. Skywalker and his droid R2-D2 were fighting them off, but one managed to hover under the ship and cause damage to the ship which made it malfunction and crash.

During the assault on the Invisible Hand, Anakin used his interceptor's weapons to disable the Hand's hangar shields. Anakin then crash-landed his ship inside that starship's hangar bay, and it was likely destroyed as the infamous Confederate warship plummeted into the atmosphere of Coruscant.

After Anakin became Darth Vader, he flew an Eta-2 interceptor that was colored black, keeping several identical craft in reserve.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Aurebesh markings on the sides of the craft read "Elbert Maria," but it is as of yet unknown what this refers to.
