The Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor, more commonly known as the Jedi starfighter due to its extensive use by Jedi, was an interceptor commissioned just before the outbreak of the Clone Wars in 22 BBY.

The starfighter was highly advanced and carried sophisticated equipment, but it was expensive to produce. The ship was armed with four laser cannons (originally the Delta-7 carried two laser cannons but due Jedi Master Saesee Tinn's recommendations many of the fighters were upgraded to contain the extra two cannons behind breakaway panels), and an advanced communication and sensor array kept the pilot of the ship well-prepared in firefights as well as peacetime.

The Delta-7 fighter was fairly prominent in the Clone Wars, mainly through its use by Jedi. One of the most famous encounters and tests of the Delta-7 was the tracking of bounty hunter Jango Fett by Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi through the asteroid fields of Geonosis.
