Description

"You always hear them first. Twin ion engines make TIE fighters howl as they fly by on patrols."
Ezra Bridger

The TIE/LN starfighter, commonly known as the TIE Fighter, was the signature starfighter of the Galactic Empire. Instantly recognizable from the roar of their engines, they exuded Imperial power and prestige across the galaxy, seeing use throughout the Empire's political existence. The TIE measured 8.99 meters (29.5 ft) in length, and could attain a maximum speed of 1,200 km/h (746 mph). It was propelled by two P-s3 ion engines.

During the reign of the Empire, TIE fighters were favored for their versatility, if not for their durability. They were able to operate both in space as well as in planetary atmospheres, acting as fighters or scouts. One great advantage of the TIE fighter was the fact that it was not simply limited to linear flight, like other fighters of its time. On occasion the fighters demonstrated ability to hover in place and even fly completely sideways, adding to the usefulness of the fighter as a scout vehicle. With TIE pilots instructed to ignore their own well-being in order to achieve their objectives, the fighters were extremely fragile and their pilots expendable. With the Imperial Navy's vast size and unchallenged reign over the galaxy, the use of swarm tactics and subsequent mass production and refreshment of the vessels barely put a dent into Imperial manpower and industrial capacity.
