The Delta-12 Skysprite was a two-being starfighter/cargo transport developed by Kuat Systems Engineering for the Jedi Order.

Characteristics

This vessel was a two-person version of the Delta-7 Aethersprite-class starfighter, produced without weapons for civilian sales. They were also used by the Jedi Knights.

The Skysprite was a wedge-shaped starfighter with a cockpit large enough to seat two. Like the Delta-7 model, the Delta-12 featured no onboard hyperdrive, though the Skysprite could link up with a Syluire-31 hyperspace docking ring to reach lightspeed. The model featured no weaponry, though it was believed that certain models were modified by Jedi pilots with laser cannons.

History

At least one of these starfighters was carried aboard Outbound Flight when the project launched in 27 BBY. It was intended to be used by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, who planned to stay aboard Outbound Flight until its arrival at the Unknown Regions and then use it to return to Coruscant. However, they were forced to leave earlier aboard a shuttle with Supreme Chancellor Palpatine and the Delta-12 was left aboard the doomed vessel.

Around ten years after the Clone Wars, Kuat Systems Engineering sold the entire Delta line to Sienar Fleet Systems.

Perhaps the last of its kind, the Delta-12 onboard Outbound Flight was rediscovered some forty years after the launch of the project by Luke and Mara Jade Skywalker. The two Jedi Knights used the Delta-12 to breach a Dreadnaught cruiser captured by the deadly Vagaari.
