Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The First Order TIE bomber was a series of bomber used by the First Order. The craft had two pods, similar to the old TIE bombers used by the Galactic Empire.[source?] The new version featured angular wings. The engine bank at the rear was squared off, 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.
History[edit | edit source]
At one point during the war between the First Order and the Resistance, a number of these bombers were deployed to the planet Aeos Prime. After the Battle of Crait, they were deployed to bomb areas as part of the destruction of Tah'Nuhna.
