Description[edit | edit source]
"The standard starfighter of the Imperial Navy, the TIE (Twin Ion Engine) fighter is sturdy (despite a lack of deflector shields), faster, and more agile than its Rebel X-wing counterpart, and versatile enough to serve in multiple roles. Its speed, maneuverability, tiny silhouette, and good forward visibility give it an edge in a dogfight, while its armor and payload options make it useful against enemy capital ships as well."
Behind the Scenes[edit | edit source]
The TIE Fighter first appeared in the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, directed by George Lucas.
