Manufactured by Sienar Fleet Systems, EX-4-9 was a TIE/LN starfighter within the Imperial Navy during the Galactic Civil War. By 3 ABY, the Executor-class Star Dreadnought Executor included EX-4-9 among two full wings of TIE/LN starfighters at the Star Dreadnought's disposal, at a total of 144 starships. Around that time, EX-4-9 flew through the Hoth asteroid field.
Behind the scenes
EX-4-9 was created in 2003 on a card for the Empire Strikes Back expansion set of the Star Wars Trading Card Game. The image on the card is an edited version of a still from the 1980 original trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. The lead TIE in the photo was altered for the card as a rotated version of a film still of Black 11, a TIE/LN starfighter from 1983's original trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, which was inserted to take the place of the lead TIE from the original The Empire Strikes Back still.
