The INT-4 Interceptor was an aerial vehicle used by the Galactic Empire for scouting operations. Introduced at some point before the Battle of Hoth[1] in 3 ABY,[2] it had a blocky cockpit module with an entrance hatch at the top, two stabilizer wings, two laser cannons, and landing gear. There existed a modified version fitted with a close-range impact hammer, which was used to batter enemy fortifications.[1] In keeping with the Galactic Empire's preference for subdued colors,[3] the hulls of INT-4s were painted a light gray.[1]

At some point during the Imperial occupation of the Forest Moon of Endor, an Ewok of the Bright Tree tribe named Peekpa found a battered INT-4 Interceptor, which[4] she[5] tried to repair with salvaged parts. Eventually, she managed to make the craft serviceable enough to at least lift off the ground. Sometime later, the Ewok shaman Logray told gathered members of the Bright Tree tribe a story about Peekpa, which included the INT-4 Interceptor.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

The INT-4 Interceptor first appeared in the current Star Wars canon in Star Wars: Commander,[1] a mobile strategy game which was developed by Disney Interactive and released on August 21, 2014 for iOS devices.[6] The scout craft can be added to the game's armory by collecting 20 data fragments, and can only be used on Hoth.[1] Originally, the INT-4 was created by the Kenner toy company in 1982 as part of the second wave of its Mini-Rig vehicle series.[7]
