The Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor, also known as the Eta-2 Actis Jedi Interceptor or simply Actis, was a starfighter used by the Jedi during the Clone Wars. Designed to replace the Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor, the Actis was a smaller vessel but possessed superior firepower.

Measuring 5.47 meters in length,[4] the Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor was a highly maneuverable combat-oriented starfighter utilized by the Jedi Order to lead troops in battle during the final days of the Clone Wars. As with earlier Jedi starfighters, the ship lacked a hyperdrive and relied on an external hyperspace transport ring to reach hyperspace. Despite this, it was faster than its Aethersprite predecessor, with ion engines providing a maximum acceleration of 5,200G and a max speed of 1,500 kph. The Eta-2 featured wings with upper and lower radiator panels, S-foils, that were opened to shed excess heat from the ship's engines. The radiator wings were primarily opened during intense combat.[8]

The ship was piloted by a single pilot, with the assistance of a single externally mounted astromech droid for navigation and repair assistance. For offense, the ship featured two laser cannons and two ion cannons. Unlike laser cannons, the ship's ion cannons fired bursts of plasma that caused temporary electrical disruptions to their target upon impact.[8]

The ship saw extensive use during the latter end of the Clone Wars by the Jedi Order, most notably by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Grand Master Yoda.[8]

Darth Vader would continue to use a modified black variant of the starfighter for several years following the conclusion of the Clone Wars.[12] Five years after the end of the war, a damaged Jedi interceptor was found on the junkyard planet Bracca by two Scrapper Guild members, Prauf and Cal Kestis. Unknown to Prauf, the ship's discovery caused Kestis to recall his past, as he was a Jedi survivor of the purge that shattered the Jedi Order.[13] A grey Eta-2 was hung as one of the many exhibits in the Gallery of Peace in the Coalition for Progress headquarters, which was located on the third moon of Coruscant, Centax-3.[14]
