Description

The TIE/IN interceptor, also known as the 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/IN interceptor was a far deadlier opponent than the standard TIE/ln space superiority starfighter and featured four very recognizable pointed solar panels. These panels, based on the “bent-wing” configuration used on the prototype TIE Advanced flown by Darth Vader, were given a dagger like design, which gave a TIE fighter pilot a wider field of vision. Lacking
both shields and a hyperdrive, it made up for its lack of defensive capabilities with a top speed of 1,250 kph owing to upgraded engines providing considerably improved maneuverability and speed. In addition, four laser cannons on its wingtips allowed for far more firepower to overload the shields on an enemy craft. With the Empire placing its elite pilots into Interceptor cockpits to maximize the craft’s effectiveness, Interceptors were ideally suited for their main function: chasing down and eliminating rebel starfighters.

Veteran rebel pilots understood that they should not underestimate the TIE interceptor’s maneuverability and speed. In fact, to maximize the craft’s speed, designers enlarged the standard twin ion engines. The TIE interceptor’s large solar panels were included to give the needed power. Some interceptors belonging to elite pilots featured additional red and dark grey markings. In 2 BBYVult Skerris flew one of these starfighters, when he was based at Skystrike Academy.
