Star Wars: Squadrons Wiki

The TIE/SA bomber, also referred to simply as the TIE Bomber, is a bomber for the Galactic Empire in Star Wars: Squadrons.[1]


"A heavily armored tank of a ship, the TIE surface assault bomber is the slowest and least responsive ship in the Imperial roster, but that thick armor allows it to hang tough in a firefight against the faster ship classes. In a head-to-head joust with any other ship, the bomber – with its powerful loadout – will always come out on top. As the name implies, it is primarily designed for bombing runs, particularly on large capital ships. It can weather a storm of turbolaser fire to lay down a swath of destruction across heavily armored hulls, hampering or destroying escorts and flagships alike."[1]

Behind the Scenes[]

The TIE Bomber first appeared in the 1980 film Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, directed by Irvin Kershner.
