Role Classified

Overview

As the original model for all of the future TIE projects, this star fighter has maximized it's potential and serves as the primary fighter in the Imperial Navy. It was best to maximize numbers and overwhelm the enemy due to design drawbacks from conception (such as a lack of shielding or a dependency on a larger transport craft).

Performance

The TIE/ln Star fighter serves across the galaxy on many systems and planets, however with the basic design she has many flaws that can be overlooked dependent on the pilot's skill. Some of these flaws include a lack of landing gear, ensuring that the pilot needs some form of additional access to ascend into the star craft.

In conjunction, the craft also lacks any form of shielding which allows other craft to easily neutralize a lone TIE if the pilot is unprepared.

Role

Star fighter

This fighter has widely served the Imperial military from orbit, core systems, and even the edge of the galaxy.

Miscellaneous

  • The TIE fighter is named after her Twin Ion Engine, hence TIE.
  • TIE pilots carry a unique service ID base upon their operator. The first two letters serve as a posting, the next two to three letters served the squadron, and the last one to two numbers serve as the position within the unit.
  • A lack of moving parts made the craft low maintenance and would allow repair teams to quickly fix problems as they became apparent.
