Overview

The TIE-Fighter is a custom-made model of the TIE/LN starfighter which Benulobiweed Inc. imported from a mysterious Empire in the unknown regions. The original design and the adaption to "inferior" GalCop technology came from Sienar Fleet Systems there. Different from the original the TIE-Fighter is double size and has a single front laser mount. However, the full range of equipment (including shields and hyperdrive) could now be added to the ship systems.

It is a combat ship, and a damn good one despite relying on a single forward military grade laser. Small enough to pass unharmed amid the beams of a Rattle Cutter four-laser volley, fast enough to catch most preys and evade most pursuers, with shields meant to withstand heavy punishment.

While Galactic Police (GalCop) was pleased with the donated fighters they ultimately refused to replace the Viper class fighter with TIEs. The most credible answer we got from insiders was that "No Gal Cop pilot will ever accept to stay cramped into an exotic soda can".

The complete lack of cargo and the price of 800,000 Credits leave this ship relegated to the public market. Occasionally you can see some, possibly insane, escorts, bounty hunters and mercenaries flying decommissioned police fighters.

Soon Benulobiweed Inc. was able to copy the design and started with the production of more specialized models in their own workshops.


Variants

The first TIE-line entirely assembled in the workshops of Benulobiweed Inc. included the TIE/S01 Scout, the TIE/GA01 Fighter and the TIE/F02 Fighter. All models were exclusively sold to government militaries. While the exact reproduction of the energy storage with GalCop technology failed the engineers were still able to fit 5 energy banks into the small hull. As the maximum speed got reduced so got the prices, some disbanded fighters could be bought for roughly 1/4 of the imported TIE-Fighters.
