The First Order TIE bomber was a class of TIE line bomber using by the First Order during its war with the Resistance.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The First Order TIE bomber[2] was a series of bomber used by the First Order. The craft had two pods,[1] similar to the old TIE bombers used by the Galactic Empire.[source?] The new version featured angular wings.[1] The engine bank at the rear was squared off,[3] creating a silhouette similar to the TIE silencer.[source?]

The TIE variant had four solar collectors that also acted as its wings, with four laser cannons on each forward tip. The wings themselves were angled outwards, and it had two central pods, one with a cockpit.[1]
