The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on official information from the Star Wars Legends continuity, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

This article is about Anakin's yellow customized Delta-7B. You may be looking for Azure Angel or Azure Angel II, each being a blue customized Delta-7 or Anakin's other starfighters.

"Anakin, there are too many to take by yourself."
"You say something, Master Obi-Wan?—I can't hear you over the sound of all these enemy fighters being destroyed."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker[src]

Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker used various customized Delta-7B Aethersprite-class light interceptors during the Clone Wars to lead the Republic Navy against Separatist forces.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

"Fire up the engines, Artoo-Detoo—we're leaving."
―Anakin Skywalker, to R2-D2[src]

These series of starfighters were each painted gray and yellow, like his later Eta-2 Actis-class interceptor, and were armed with four laser cannons and an unknown complement of missiles. His droid, R2-D2, could fit in a socket located just fore of the cockpit of each fighter.[1] Skywalker's fighter also had a tow cable.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

"Ready the laser cannons, Artoo!"
―Anakin Skywalker, to R2-D2[src]

At some point in time after the destruction of the Azure Angel on Yavin 4, Anakin Skywalker began using Delta-7B Aethersprite starfighters.[1]

Anakin first used his Delta-7B interceptor when he flew alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi's Delta-7B in the Battle of Christophsis.

Later, Anakin once again flew the fighter alongside Obi-Wan's as they led Ghost Squadron during the Battle of Nexus Ortai. However, after both sides sustained heavy casualties, the Republic withdrew when the Separatists brought reinforcements out of hyperspace.

During the Battle of Bothawui, the interceptor was severely damaged and R2-D2 went missing, believed to be destroyed. Artoo, however, was salvaged by the Trandoshan captain of the Vulture's Claw, Gha Nachkt. Nachkt discovered the military secrets inside the astromech, and planned to sell him to the Separatists.

The fighter was later recovered and piloted by Anakin with a new astromech droid, R3-S6. Anakin used the ship during the mission to uncover the location of the Separatist listening post, and during the ensuing raid on Skytop Station, he recovered Artoo as the station was breaking apart.

Later, Anakin intentionally damaged the ship and used it along with the Twilight and a hyperdrive ring as a ploy to get aboard Count Dooku's frigate, with the intent to capture Dooku. However, his mission proved unsuccessful.

During the Battle of Ryloth, Anakin piloted his starfighter along with Ahsoka and her starfighter. Together they faced Hyena-class bombers during the conflict.

Destruction[edit | edit source]

"Where's your starfighter?"
"That thing ate it!"
Mace Windu and Anakin Skywalker[src]

Although surviving more than one precarious wreck, the fighter met its demise in the aftermath of the Battle of Malastare, when Skywalker flew into the hole of the last remaining Zillo Beast. Anakin tried to out-maneuver the beast, but his Delta-7B was struck by the creature and the vessel crashed into the rocky terrain. Skywalker escaped by riding on his astromech, R2-D2, using the droid's thrusters to leave the wrecked Delta-7B behind to be crushed by the beast.

Rebuilt[edit | edit source]

Despite its destruction on Malastare, the fighter appeared once again when Skywalker used the fighter to find an escape pod containing a group of clone cadets that had been forced to evacuate the Venator-class Star Destroyer Endurance.[3] It was later destroyed when R2-D2 was forced to use the fighter to destroy a gundark on Vanqor. Later, Skywalker rebuilt the fighter, and used it to shoot down Ventress's personal shuttle along with Obi-Wan's Delta-7B.[4]
