The Delta-6 starfighter was a short-range light starfighter used by the Jedi Order during the time of the Invasion of Naboo. It was the predecessor to the Delta-7 Aethersprite-class interceptor. Where the Delta-7 was essentially a sort-bodied snubfighter, the Delta-6 was a long-nosed fighter, although it retained the arrowhead shape and rear cockpit location.

The Delta-6, manufactured by Kuat Systems Engineering, was a short-range patrol and reconnaissance interceptor, able to hold one pilot. This model lacked an on-board astromech droid for in-flight navigational assistance. It was armed with twin laser cannons, located on either side of the tapering, delta-shaped nose. These models were painted with a bronze and silver finish. The model evolved from the earliest Jedi starfighter concepts, dating back to the time of the Great Sith War and the Jedi Civil War. 

Prior to the onset of the Clone Wars, Kuat Systems Engineering unveiled the Delta-7 Aethersprite-class interceptor—the latest craft in the Delta line—thus rendering the Delta-6 obsolete. About ten years after the Battle of Geonosis, Kuat Drive Yards sold the entire Delta line to Sienar Fleet Systems, choosing to concentrate on capital ships instead of fighters. Any Delta-6 starfighters that survived into the Galactic Civil War would have become the property of Sienar Fleet Systems at that time.
