Description

The TIE/rb heavy starfighter was an Imperial craft of the TIE line. Unlike the regular TIE/LN starfighter, it was equipped with a pressurized cockpit. As the fighter was theorized to be a larger target, the viewport was made of extra-reinforced transparisteel.

The prototype was created by Sienar Fleet Systems in response to the Empire’s expansion into the Outer Rim Territories.

Some Imperial admirals were wary of its development, believing it would reduce the need for larger support vessels. Like all TIE models, they were manufactured by Sienar Fleet Systems,
and featured twin ion engines and micro-corrugated solar collector panels, with the power being transferred via a conduit located between the panel and the engine systems. The pilot was assisted by an MGK-300 droid brain, which acted in a similar manner to an astromech counterpart.

At least three of the starfighters were assigned to the Kullgroon garrison. They were deployed during the uprising on the planet led by Captain Lando Calrissian and the natives. They were all shot down by L3-37 flying the starship Millennium Falcon.

CadetHan Solo, during his time at the Carida Academy, was assigned to fly a TIE Brute aboard a Cantwell-class Arrestor Cruiser as part of Onyx Squadron. His ship was damaged during a fight with pirates and crashed in the landing bay, leading to a tribunal.

In 10 BBY, one such fighter was again deployed to chase the Millennium Falcon inside
the Akkadese Maelstrom and was the last surviving TIE Fighter pursuing the Falcon until
Solo, now an outlaw, used a maneuver he learned from a street racer on Corellia, causing the
TIE/rb to crash.
