Thread: New Tie Fighter

    Exclamation New Tie Fighter

    In the latest LucasArts newsletter, shots from the new game Rogue Squadron III were included. There was a 3D model of a new tie fighter, that was absolutely off the hook. Does anyone have any information about this new ship, anything at all will do. I love new ties, and this one is great!

    YOu know a name? cause i have not heard of this. Wonder whats its purpose is though? cause all Imperial TIEs have already exhausted their functions. Cloaking. Bombing. Tanks. INterceptors. Droids. Mentioning the many TIEs out there. I think they never made a TIE walker?

    Default New tie

    I do not know the name, but have only seen a pic... It is sleek and has a profile reminiscent of an interceptor, with a fairly large engine emplied, as well as some very large gunports. Give me your email and I will foreward a pic to you.

    I think the purpose is to uppdate technology. The original TIE was a basic interceptor, then the TIE Interceptor came in and kicked butt; now this new TIE is the best of the best as far as I can tell. The 181st has a few of these, if I'm not guessing incorrectly.

    Better than a TIE interceptor is a TIE advanced. That has the interceptor style cut-aways on both the front and back of the wings. Quad lasers are mounted on the wings like the interceptor, there are also missile tubes underneath the cockpit. It also (the Avenger version at least) has a sort of flattened engine section.

    Better than a TIE advanced is a TIE defender - iirc, the 181st is known to have flown these at one point. The defender has three wing arrays equally spaced around the fuselage. Each of these has two wings sticking out at angles, like a Y.

    If I had to guess, I'd say it's neither of those. Lucasarts loves making up new TIE designs. (It's like they have some kind of random TIE generator.)

    I can only assume this is the TIE you are asking about. I'm not sure about it, and we likely really won't know until the game is released. But it is an interesting design.

    No, I am familiar with the tie family. I know ints, adv's (most famous varients) defenders, raptors, bombers, scims, uglies (incld deathseeds) crawlers and about everything else. This is brand new. Post your email and I'll send a copy.

    It does look like an update to the TIE Interceptor design.

    Looks pretty sweet.

    Wow an interesting design but looks like it will follow the Interceptor pathway. Those wings are just calling for it .

    Well, I put a link above, but when a Mod asks you to post a pic, what can you say??

    Here you go:

    While it does look like it's following the T/I and T/A line, judging from the pic it'll carry the T/A wing-mount quad laser & internal warhead launchers, but adds a pair of ion or some other heavy cannon in the wing roots. The wings also appear to be S-Foiled & fold up similar to the venerable X-Wing.

    It looks very much like Sienar Fleet Systems has produced a design similar to the Twi'Lek Chir'Daki, but without the B-W style stabilizer ring around the cockpit, with typical SFS styling, and probably some suitably Imperial name tacked onto it, like TIE Enforcer (T/E).

    Interesting, one wonders if this is going to be a standard SFS design or some Warlord Custom...

    I don't see evidence of wing mounted quadlasers, warhead launchers or a stabiliser ring. The wings could be foldable, though the little raised sections (look like air intakes, lights at the back of them) would mean they wouldn't lie flat.

    I wouldn't get too excited about the ship, lucasarts churns new TIEs out all over the place.
    The ship looks unaccountably familiar to me, which makes me wonder whether one of the experimental TIEs in SWA had a similar design.

    Well it does look abit like the Chiss Claw Craft so perhaps....its a precursor to that design.
