Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The Advanced Project ship's role was to escort freighters in the Outer Rim Territories for corporate clients. They could deploy into combat from tight-packed launch stacks in standard cargo holds. Advanced Project ships did not have the blade-shaped forward hull of the Scimitar, only a compact, spherical compartment, and had broad vertical cooling vanes at either end of a twenty-meter wingspan. It had essentially the TIE's signature look, but was painted black and was noted as being smaller than previous models.
History[edit | edit source]
The design of the Advanced Project ship would be expanded upon with the T.I.E. starfighter and its successor designs.
