From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The Chryya-class very fast courier was a type of heavy starfighter built by Hoersch-Kessel Drive, Inc., and used by the Jedi Knights during the Clone Wars. Whereas in this period, HKD were best known for the large capital ships used by the Trade Federation, the Chryya belonged to a design lineage of fast scouts that stretched back to the Delaya-class courier of four thousand years earlier, also embodied by the contemporary Tavya-class armored picket and Seltaya-class fast courier. Like those other ships, the Chryya took its class-name from a planet ending in -a, in this case Chryya, once visited by Darth Maul

The Chryya could be flown by a single pilot, but the cockpit also contained a seat and console for a dedicated gunner to operate the turret-mounted laser cannon, and was large enough for entry and exit through a hatch in the forward hull, rather than simply an opening canopy. Six months before the fall of the Old Republic, Anakin Skywalker was using a modified Chryya as his personal starfighter, although it was stolen from him by Asajj Ventress on Vjun.
