Description

The TIE/sa bomber, formally known as the TIE Surface Assault Bomber and also known as the TIE/sa tactical bomber and TIE bomber, was a bombing variant of the TIE line used by the Galactic Empire, and was their main source of anti-emplacement air-support. They were nicknamed “dupes” by the New Republic pilot Wyl Lark.

The TIE/sa bomber was specifically designed by Sienar Fleet Systems for use in the military of the Galactic Empire. A model of light bomber, it was part of the TIE line of starfighters, distinguished by their twin ion engines and solar collector panels. The
bomber measured 7.9 meters long, 10.6 meters wide, and 5.4 meters high. In keeping with the Empire’s preference for muted colors, it was painted a bluish gray.  Like the TIE Advanced x1 prototype, the TIE/sa bomber had inclined wings, which maximized its speed and maneuverability while carrying mass of heavy ordnance. Unlike the other models
in the TIE line, the bomber had not one but two central pods: a starboard cockpit for the pilot and a portside ordnance bay for the munitions. The cockpit featured two forward-mounted laser cannons, the standard transparisteel viewport, and an ejector seat in case a pilot on a distant bombing run needed to abandon ship.  The ordnance bay was divided into two sections. The forward ordnance bay carried either eight concussion missiles or
four proton torpedoes. The main ordnance bay carried either four proton torpedoes and eight concussion missiles, or eight proton bombs and sixty-four thermal detonators, or six orbital mines, or even stormtroopers. Located underneath the ordnance pod was a bomb chute connected to the ship’s targeting systems, a T-s7b targeting computer and a 398X bomb sight. The pod also featured a missile port that allowed for front-launching and torpedoes. The ordnance bay could also be swapped for a passenger cabin with room for six.
