The TIE Interceptor was developed from the TIE Advanced. It was designed to be faster, more manueverable, and more lethal than the TIE/Ln. It takes the standard TIE cockpit and has dagger shaped bent solar panels. The TIE Interceptor has four laser cannons, one at the end of each solar panel. To save weight, there is no hyperdrive, no shield generator, and little armor plating. We intend for the Interceptor to replace the TIE/Ln, but many Imperial officials don't want to let go of the classic design.
