Behind the scenesEditThe INT-4 originated as a Mini-Rig in the Kenner toy series, designed to fit inside the AT-AT within the same range. The details about its role are taken from Kenner material: the box described it being used on "a scouting mission for Rebel Base", and depicted it in a white setting with Snowtroopers and AT-AT crew, while the contemporary catalogue said that it could "fly short missions".
A similar vehicle appeared on the cover of the novel Lando Calrissian and the Starcave of ThonBoka. Although it is not explicitly indicated which of the fighters seen in the book it is meant to represent, the "interceptors" at Hosrel XI seem most probable. Alternatively, however, they may have been represented among the ramshackle fighter squadron of the Renatasian Confederation.
It is also possible that the ships depicted in the novel, which have some differences of appearance from the toy, represent a different design within the same wider Interceptor lineage as the INT-4. Tim Veekhoven's blog Offscreen, but Not Forgotten: Mini-Rigs, Body-Rigs, and Other Kenner Vehicles, however, revealed that those were actually based on the similar Scout Walker cockpit sets released by Kenner rather than the INT-4.
