The TIE/lN Interceptor, also known as TIE Interceptor, was a type of TIE fighter used by the Galactic Empire, most notably during the Battle of Endor. The interceptor was identifiable by the addition of four arrow-shaped panels tipped with laser cannons.
The TIE/lN Interceptor was far deadlier opponent than the standard TIE/ln space superiority starfighter. Its panels were based on the “bent-wing” configuration used on the prototype TIE Advanced X1, but were given a dagger like design, which gave the TIE fighter pilot a wider field of vision. It lacked both shields and a hyperdrive, but made up for
the lack of defenses with greater speed capabilities and maneuverability.
In addition, four laser cannons on its wingtips allowed for far more firepower to overload the shields on an enemy craft. The Empire placed its elite pilots into interceptors to maximize the craft’s effectiveness. Interceptors were ideally suited for their main function:
chasing down and eliminating rebel starfighters.
