That Shrieking Sound

The terrifying, screaming sound of Imperial TIE Fighters descending on their targets is one of the few things Alliance pilots admit to fearing. Below are two of the unusual variants of the standard TIE craft that fringers might encounter.

TIE Oppressor

The TIE Oppressor is a new variant intended to serve as a multi-role spacecraft. The Oppressor is capable of being deployed as a dedicated ground assault asset rivaling the standard TIE Heavy Bomber as well as functioning as a deadly space superiority fighter. The Oppressor’s increased weapons and defensive systems complement is balanced by is comparatively slower handling and speed. Below is a TIE Oppressor fitted for anti-air missions.
