Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor

The Eta-2 Actis-class Interceptor was favored by Jedi Knights during the late Clone Wars for their speed maneuverability and variety of weapons, hence the nickname Jedi Interceptor. Their most noteable use on-screen was during the Battle of Coruscant, where Anakin and Obi-Wan used these ships to board an enemy cruiser to rescue the Chancellor. The ships have two laser cannons and two light ion cannons. The lack of deflector shields and relatively thin armoring makes them vulnerable to buzz-droid attacks, as seen in episode 3.
