Oh this is sick, I always did like turret fighters. Even the old ones from the earlier half of the 20th century.

that’s really awesome I wonder if it would land like a vulture droid and requires a ladder to get in and out of the cockpit?

I’m getting Legend of the Galactic Heroes Valkyrie vibes and it is making my nerd heart sing better than and Epstein drive sipping refined Tylium.

So with the turrets does it have 2 crewmen? A pilot and a gunner?

Dang! Up until now the Mangler was my favorite TIE, with its turbolasers to fight big ships. But this one… I can see this literally dancing around enemy fighters while picking them off one by one with its turrets.

Does it transform too? seriously I would love to see a full state block on this WUNDERTIE

I can’t decide whether I like it or not. It is certainly unique and would look gorgeous in flight but the gimmick is, well gimmicky. I applaud your boldness and creativity, but all I’m saying is…Hasbro would love it if this made its way into canon. 😛 Good work as always though!

IF the solar panels could fold down the turrets could fire 360 without reorienting the ship.

Check out WIP #2, they can.

I meant completely fold down. The panels are just in the way on this design and should be redesigned. in any case it a ludicrously complicated design that would never see more then a few prototypes.

Wow, this thing would wreck Alliance starfighters with a good pilot. Great Job Fractal!

In fortunately its a very complicated design that’s would be extremely difficult to pilot. The B-wing of the Tie Series.

Whirlwind… aye, I see what you did there.

Would this be a patrol fighter or some sort of heavy fighter destroyer?

This is a really great TIE design. It’d be cool to see this in Mandalorian season 2 and its Moff Gideon’s new experimental TIE!

Really wish you’d been the one designing stuff for the sequel trilogy. Then again, perhaps it’s better not to have your name attached to such a mess? LOL. Point is, your designs are fantastic.

the sequel trilogy is hot trash.

Does it still have the ability to fold its wings, or did you decide to scrap that? I hope that a droid brain is the co-pilot here as historically human aimed turrerts were rather bad accuracy wise.

Great design!!

Excellent work Ansel. Fantastic!

Ooh, love the name! Props to the gunner (I’m assuming there’s one) for moving the wings in sync with the turrets. How they manage to do that, I can’t imagine.

Droid brain, perhaps. Probably the best way to keep the guns on one target or even targetting multiple targets at once

This design is insane! I imagine it being the pinnacle of intercepter technology.

I imagine it being a maintenance hog. Probably more expensive to run then a TIE Defender. The TIE Defender might be more expensive to produce but the complexity of this design is probably a credit sink
