These five experimental designs were issued in limited number to the Imperial Navy. They were designed with greater weapon systems than current TIEs.
Our designers are experimenting with a remotely operated TIE Fighter. This is our latest concept. It is called the TIE/D (for TIE/droid unit). It can be operated by a droid outside of the ship.
This design was forwarded to us by an Imperial admiral. It takes the shape of a Defender, but without hyperdrive or shields, making it less expensive. It is called the TIE Raptor.
This concept design takes a different approach to the three wing design. It will increase maneuverability. We are calling it the Tri Fighter.
