Description: The Tie Defender was a total change in policy for the Galactic Empire, they had never supported a fighter with shields and a hyperdrivve before, but the Tie Defender ended this policy. This was seen by many as an admission that the designs and tactics used by the Rebel Alliance were successful, and from a design point of view the Tie Defender has more in common with fighters like the X Wing, than it does with its own Tie fighter ancestors. With three large solar panel wings it has power aplenty to devote to its 6 energy weapons, the drive systems which made it as fast as a Rebel A Wing fighter and its sheild generators. The energy weapons are mounted on the forward ends of the wings in a similar manner to those on a Tie Interceptor, with the weapon bay on the chin of the command pod holding its twin Concussion Missile launchers. With larger engines and thrusters in the centre of all three of its wings, the Tie Defender is a very agile and powerful fighter, which has only one disadvantage, its cost. v
