Description: As the Clone Wars raged across the galaxy, star systems found themselves subject to raids and attacks by one side or another, and couldn't count on the fleets to defend them against attack. Many systems bought starfighters, leading to the success of the Z-95 Headhunter and Y-Wing fighters, but some systems manufactured their own vessels.
Corellia purchased the rights to build the Eta-2 Actis interceptor to defend it's system, however this fighter had a well earned reputation for being near uncontrolable by anyone apart from a Jedi, so Corellian Engineering reworked the design. Adding improved flight control computers to aid the pilot, energy shielding to protect the fragile hull, and a inbuilt hyperdrive, the starfighter was more expensive, but actually far more capable in battle than the interceptor it was based on.
The spaceframe is basically the same, but larger solar panels to meet the power demands of the added systems, and a move of the droid socket to a more traditional placing behind the pilot as well as an increased hull volume to incorporate the systems, leave the fighter with its own distinctive look.
