The TIE/dg starfighter, also known as the TIE dagger, or the Sith TIE fighter, was a type of Sith TIE line starship that was forged in secret by sinister forces. It saw use during the war between the First Order and the Resistance as a new generation of starfighter. It was manufactured by Sienar-Jaemus Fleet Systems and had red designs. It had a cockpit, two triangular-shaped wings that featured solar collectors, and twin ion engines. Its appearance gave the vessel a menacing profile.
