From Age of Rebellion

The tiny and fragile TIE/In has been the primary space superiority fighter of the Imperial Navy for decades now. Light, fast, and nimble, SFS’s TIE/ln is a bare-bones, no-nonsense fighter designed for deployment in large groups to overwhelm enemy combatants with sheer numbers, as opposed to precision fighting and flying. Considered largely disposable, as are their pilots, TIE/ln fighters have extremely light hulls, thin armor, and no shields. They possess no internal life support systems, or hyperdrive, and only the barest of avionics. Every bit of fat was trimmed from the initial design, resulting in a screamingly fast and shockingly agile fighter, albeit one with a very high attrition rate.

TIE/ln fighters are the most common in the Imperial arsenal. They fight in swarms, using their speed and agility to out-maneuver opponents and employ pack hunting tactics to destroy targets by chewing away at them with their light laser cannons (as opposed to using heavy weapons). Rebel pilots refer to this as “death by a thousand cuts,” comparing TIE pilot tactics to those of small, fierce hunting dogs bred to stalk rodents and vermin. Although Alliance pilots have any number of derogatory nicknames for the standard TIE/ln and its pilots, there is no mistaking their effectiveness. Their ability to project the Empire’s force throughout the galaxy is without question.

From Edge of the Empire

The primary space superiority fighter of the Imperial Navy, the tiny and fragile Twin Ion Engine fighter has been in service for decades. Light, fast, and incredibly nimble, the iconic TIE fighter is a bare-bones, no-nonsense fightercraft. Consisting of a spherical, lightly armored command module with a large circular transparisteel viewport attached to two massive hexagonal wing and solar panel assemblies, the TIE fighter has no shields, no landing gear, no hyperdrive, few computerized systems, and no life support system, requiring the pilots to wear vacuum suits. Every bit of fat was trimmed from the initial design, resulting in a blisteringly fast and shockingly agile ship, albeit one with a high attrition rate.

Along with being light, the ship is also incredibly simple. It draws its power from a miniature version of SFS’s l-a2b solar ionization reactor, which collects solar energy from the panels in the fighter’s wing assemblies. This generator powers the twinned, high-output SFS P-s4 ion engines from which the craft takes its name, as well as the twin linked laser cannons under the cockpit. TIE fighters are necessarily short-range fighters. When not based at planetary or orbital naval installations, they must be carried into battle by carrier ships such as Star Destroyers or escort frigates.
