This looks like the lovechild of a TIE Phantom and a TIE Defender… I love it!

This feels like it came out of the whole TIE interceptor/TIE Defender line of ships. Very aggressive heavy hitter type. Awesome design!

So it wasn’t just me. It strikes me as a budget-version of the TIE Defender, refined and iterated to the point where it doesn’t cost an obscene amount of credits to mass-produce them.

I’d twist that a little.

If you’re the Empire even production run well into tens of thousands is just about scratching the surface of the fighter park. Further, it would probably take a lot of time to happen, even (or especially) if it’s low on the priority list. In comes a more direct responce to the Rebels which sacrifices a degree of overmatch but is vastly easier to tool up for, allowing it to actually materialize in units by the end of the next year, not sometime in the next decade, though long term goal would still be Defender.

Yup. These works of military art are reserved for those few, exceptional pilots that the Empire recognizes that it can’t simply replace overnight.

The lengthened chassis provides extra volume to support an enhanced power generator and a life-support system. The former is especially valuable for powering the beefy Twin Laser Cannons this TIE sports, capable of flattening the robust energy-shields that many Rebels and Smugglers use to protect their ships in only a shot or two, to say nothing of the armor beneath.

While this added volume adds extra weight, dropping the speed of this craft to just above that of a standard TIE Fighter, the tri-wing design allows for maneuverability that meets that of any TIE Interceptor.

Why is it that your models are 100 times better than anything that came out in the last trilogy?
I wish they’d give you credit and hire you on again!
Awesome! Keep up the great work!

Except for Rogue One and Andor, Disney Star Wars is unworthy of his work.

Would this be an interceptor or fighter?

TIE-Blade or TIE-Katar (punch-dagger) comes to mind.
