Although Jedi pilots prefer to rely on their connection to the Force to avoid disputes and aggression, Jedi starfighters are amply equipped for combat. They are to small however to carry a hyperdrive and therefore rely on a circular booster craft for travel though hyperspace. The jedi pilot Eta-2 starships during the last days of the galactic Republic, an evolved version of the Delta-7 with better firepower and a folding wingtip design. This addition is later adapted for the X-wing starfighter during the Rebellion. Anakin Skywalker's displays of skill in his Eta-2 earn him a reputation as the best starpilot in the Galaxy.
