TIE Advanced


The TIE Advanced, also known as the TIE/ad or TIE/ad starfighter, is a starfighter used by the Galactic Empire notable for its advanced technology and improved features over the standard TIE/ln fighter. Developed by Sienar Fleet Systems, the TIE Advanced features enhanced shielding, a hyperdrive, and superior maneuverability, making it a formidable craft in space combat. Notably, Darth Vader himself piloted a TIE Advanced X1 during the Battle of Yavin, showcasing the fighter's elite status within the Imperial fleet.

Unlike the standard TIE Fighter, the TIE Advanced includes solar ionization panels which increase its energy efficiency. These panels, combined with the fighter's sleek and aerodynamic design, provide it with excellent speed and agility. The inclusion of an advanced targeting computer and missile launchers offers significant firepower, allowing pilots to engage effectively against a variety of targets. These advanced features make the TIE Advanced a key asset in the Empire's efforts to maintain dominance over the galaxy.
