The Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor, Delta-7 Jedi starfighter, Delta-7 Jedi Interceptor, or more commonly known as the Jedi starfighter, was a model of starfighter designed by Kuat Systems Engineering and used by the Jedi Order during the reign of the Galactic Republic up to its end during the Clone Wars. The variant Delta-7B Aethersprite-class light interceptor was also used by the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars.


Maufactured by Kuat Systems Engineering, the Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor was a Jedi-used starfighter that saw extensive action during the golden age of the Republic, and was designed specifically with the Jedi in mind. The Delta-7's designers worked with the Jedi to create a starfighter with less internal systems than other starships, and focused on making their controls as responsive as possible due to the Jedi's Force-aided capabilities. An elite transport, it could hold a single pilot and an integrated astromech droid, as unlike later starfighter models, the wings were too thin to accommodate a full astromech. Instead, a modified astromech was hardwired into a socket on the vessel's wing, with its dome remaining intact but its components plugged directly into the ships computer. The droid therefore, would play an important part in assisting the pilot with navigation, damage control, and hyperspace travel coordinates.[3]

Unlike most ships in the galaxy, the Delta-7 Jedi starfighter did not feature a built-in hyperdrive, but instead relied on external hyperspace transport rings that attached to the starship, allowing it to enter the trans-dimensional realm. Despite this, the ship could still attain speeds of 1,260 kph in realspace, and was painted red, the color which represented the diplomatic immunity the Jedi enjoyed.[3]
