TIE/rc Fighter
Affiliation: 
Description: 

An inconspicuous but vital component of the standard Imperial fighter wing, the TIE/rc variant is the most prominent sublight reconnaissance craft of the Galactic Civil War. Though the Empire makes extensive use of dedicated scout ships, those craft are built for maximum speed in hyperspace and tend to carry massive and expensive sensor equipment. Consequently, they are not suitable for deployment in or near a combat zone as they would be easy pickings for even the most humble snubfighter.

TIE/sh Shuttle
Affiliation: 
Description: 

During the later development stages of the TIE/sa bomber, it was noted that the design would make for a highly economical sublight runabout. Far cheaper than a Lambda class shuttle, the bomber's lack of speed and shields were considered unimportant for the short ferry rides that officers often made between capital ships. The frame is also more robust and capable than an airspeeder, being able to transport its occupants into orbit or even on short intra-system journeys.

V38 Assault Fighter
Affiliation: 
Description: 

Sienar's current platform for starfighter scale technology demonstration is the V38, a highly flexible two or three seat design that resembles a scaled up descendent of the manufacturer's classic Dagger starfighter. Though shielded, hyperspace capable, and armed with a powerful array of laser cannons, the craft's offensive flexibility is hampered by a lack of secondary weapons, so its designation as an Assault Fighter is more a vestige of the planners' original intent than an accurate description of its real-world uses.
