The Eta-5 interceptor was a type of snubfighter in use by the Galactic Alliance Navy. Its name suggests that it was a descendant of the Eta-2 interceptor. 

The Eta-5 possessed a pair of wing arrays similar to its Eta-2 predecessor, but had an overall different mid-section and cockpit more in line with TIE fighters. It was powered by twin ion engines, giving it top of the line speed and maneuverability, but it had low armor and minimal shielding. It was equipped with dual fire-linked concussion missile launchers, laser cannons, and advanced computer targeting systems, giving it considerable punching power when it needed to engage small capital ships. 

Wedge Antilles's daughter, Syal Antilles, flew this model when she entered the Galactic Alliance military under the name of Lysa Dunter. She joined VibroSword Squadron. 

Rhysati Ynr made use of an Eta-5 during Lando Calrissian's mission to prevent the destruction of Kessel. She loaned it briefly to Wedge Antilles when he expressed an interest in flying it.
