I honestly never noticed the missiles before

Ah, spruced-up rendition of my favorite OT Sienar product. I take it this one’s a six-gun ship with targeting lasers in the wing hubs?

If these were so great why did the Empire ever use normal TIE fighters.
And what did they base the Interceptor off of? I can’t think of a Republic model that has similar stats or looks. Also, what was the weight of this? I know this stripped it as much as they could to save weight but how light was it?

The TIE/IN was developed after the standard TIE, so at the least they would have all of the TIEs around that were built before the INT. I don’t see the weight listed anywhere I’ve looked, but most places state that it was lighter than the TIE. I imagine the difference in these being comparable to the F-15 (TIE) and F-16 (TIE/In). Both are superiority fighters, but with different flight characteristics. Also, I note four multipurpose warhead launchers in Fractal’s model not previously depicted, giving it another advantage over the standard TIE aside from maneuverability.

And that all the OT empire’s fighters and almost all of Fractals’s fighters being 4K with the TIE mangler being the only one left.

We got an animation for the Mangler, we are good for it.

I’m talking about the render pictures not the video.

It was still a good video, all though I am a little surprised that the Mangler’s pictures were not 4K.

Yeah no argument it was a awesome animation to watch.

When SFS developed the radiative panels in the TIE series, it was said to be great new technology. I understand why the rebels did not have star craft that used these types of panels on their systems because they were largely surplus, but other than the new writers not caring about the back story much, or at all really, why wouldn’t we see these panels being adopted by every other manufacturer after Sienar made the breakthrough? Galactic copyright?

Yeah… The proprietary spec book on those things would have been thicker than Hutt’s tail!

That’s assuming, of course, that they had actual books… So… A very tall stack of datapads.
