Is this meant to be a predecessor to the fighters seen in 'A New Hope', e.g., a design that was replaced because it was too slow? Was it a TIE Advanced x0, e.g., an attempt to develop a TIE replacement, which was rejected because it was too expensive, sharing little- if any- commonality with the standard fighters?

I don't mean to be critical. The design is very impressive- intimidating, as befits an Imperial vehicle- I'm just curious why you set it between 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'A New Hope', meaning the Empire removed the vehicle from service for some reason.

Well the main idea was that it got rejected as most of the production ships due to the costs. TIEs were known for their cheap assembly so I guess everything that would be more expensive, would just go away. It shares design elements with Republic fighters from the Clone Wars, so it would be a prototype to check if those solutions can apply to mass production.

So it's a predecessor to the TIE Fighter, a prototype that wasn't put in mass-production, due to costs? Fair enough.

this shoulde been their desgin rather then that pilot seat attached to 2 solar panals and a set of guns+engines....at least this looks more like a fighter the that thing...and frankly it looks like a strong wind can tear the tie fighter in star wars films apart...

Haha yeah the originals looked really badly made :D They were iconic in their shapes though. I hope that if we get new TIEs in the future SW movies, they will be more powerful.

Be surprised how many don't pull it off as well as you do (like the glow reflection on the guns).

Thanks :) This one was a pretty radical departure from a standard TIE shape and I had doubts if it will turn out good.

Way better than the classic, but I like the classic, this takes the fighter to a new level - as a ship that can take it and dish it more.

Quality assured from you sir!

Thanks :) I always thought that the original TIE was a bit too low on the tech to proudly represent Imperial power and I guess I achieved my goal with this one :P

If they had this I think the Rebels would have lost.

The original I love but as you said, for a power, come on....

Birlliant as usual and like you I was sceptical when I saw the thumbnail but there's no rule that a TIE must maintain the draditional ball cockpit.

Thank you. I like the spherical cockpits for TIE fighters but sometimes you have to break away from the established looks and try something new :)

I agree. That's why I find most Star Trek fan art dull. Still it's amazing what you can do with the basic TIE design, like the TIE HIMAT or TIE Defender, even the Scimitar assault bomber is more or less a member of the TIE family.

"I agree. That's why I find most Star Trek fan art dull."

Go with that, I try to add some dimensions in mine and I usually stick to the TMP era because it was most visual. I mean there is oh so much one can do of the Enterprise and Klings around a planet!
