Description

The ETA-2 Actis-class interceptor, also known as the Jedi Interceptor due to its extensive use by Jedi pilots during the Clone Wars.  It was a republic starfighter used towards the end of the Clone Wars that was a blend of design elements between the Republic’s Delta-7 and Delta-7B Aethersprite starfighters, as well as the TIE fighters of the later Galactic Empire.

The ETA-2 was significantly shorter than the already diminutive Delta-7.  The new fighter’s mass was further reduced by removing much of the forward space frame, leaving the front of the ship in a forked shape.  Like its predecessor, it was also too small to hold an onboard
hyperdrive.  Because of this, the ETA-2 Actis had to rely on carrier vessels or Syliure-45 hyperdrive modules for long-distance travel.  However, the Actis did have a full astromech droid socket, instead of a truncated unit as was seen in the early models of Aethersprite starfighters.

Like the ARC-170 and Alpha-3 Nimbus class V-wing starfighters developed during the same time period, the ETA-2 incorporated S-foils to radiate excess heat in the thick of combat, reducing the likelihood of damage to the craft.  Occasionally, though not always, the lifting panels were opened during normal flight to further reduce stress on the engines.

However, such design elements resulted in a lighter hull design with light armor making the ETA-2 extremely susceptible to both laser fire and buzz droid sabotage.
