The Jedi Starfighter benefits both from technologies that affect Jedi/Sith, and those that affect Aircraft. It can gain stealth from Jedi Mind Trick, increased Line of Sight from Sight Beyond Sight, the ability to see stealthed units from Jedi/Sith Perception, and shielding from Shield Modifications, making it well suited for scouting and stealthed strikes.
In Tech Level 4, it can be upgraded to the Adv Jedi Starfighter, which has slightly more hit points and attack.
"Unique to the Republic, Jedi starfighters are primarily spying/sneak attack units. These fast-moving aircraft piloted by highly trained Jedi Knights have a slow fire rate, and a delay before firing, but they fire a homing torpedo. They can be susceptible to conversion by opposing Jedi/Sith Masters – but only if the opposing civilisation has researched the Force Influence ability. Advanced Jedi Starfighters can benefit from several upgrades including the Jedi Mind Trick, Sight Beyond Sight, and Shields. The most important upgrade is the Mind trick, which gives the craft its stealth capability."
