TIE/In Interceptor
Affiliation: 
Description: 

In many ways, the Empire's extensive TIE Advanced program was little more than a series of experiments undertaken to find the best application for Sienar Fleet Systems' new I-s3a solar ionization reactor. The product of more than a decade of research and development, this power plant so outclassed its predecessors that the standard TIE/ln starfighter configuration simply could not be made to take advantage of it.

TIE Advanced X1
Affiliation: 
Description: 

The first product of Sienar's TIE Advanced program to see combat was the X1, a true space superiority fighter of the highest quality. Driven by two sets of advanced P-s5.6 twin ion engines, the X1 can run down all but the fastest interceptors while losing only a slight edge in maneuverability to the standard TIE. More importantly, it is as robust and well protected as some light bombers thanks to an armored hull (in contrast with the standard TIE's lightweight approach) and expensive custom shield units built into the flattened trailing wing.

TIE/ln Fighter
Affiliation: 
Description: 

The most common starfighter in the Galaxy, the TIE/ln is an extremely potent weapon in the hands of an experienced pilot. At the heart of this ship is the P-s4 twin ion engine, an upgraded and refined version of Raith Sienar's original SIE-TIE concept design. This engine contains no moving parts, and its ease of use gives the TIE/ln the best maintenance-to-flight time ratio of any modern mass-production fighter.
