"Those TIEs have been modified. They're not Imperial."
"Well, they're acting like it."

TIE/mg Mining Guild starfighters,[4] also known as Mining Guild TIE fighters,[2] were modified TIE/ln space superiority starfighters[3] that the Mining Guild was allowed to use due to its association with the Galactic Empire.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

In order to make the fighters clearly distinct from the ones in direct service of the Galactic Empire, they had a yellow color scheme. They also had a notch cut in their stabilizers, giving them only eight solar collectors instead of twelve, which gave them improved visibility, but greatly diminished their combat capabilities and maneuverability.[2] They were equipped with basic shielding to protect the investment in the equipment and training of the pilots.[6] The Mining Guild also retrofitted the starfighter with specialized sensors to detect and analyze valuable resources.[6]

Role[edit | edit source]

The Mining Guild used TIE/mg starfighters to patrol their territory to prevent theft of valuable materials and gasses, and were also used to locate such materials and gasses.[6]

History[edit | edit source]

The TIEs were used at the Mining Guild's Asteroid Belt Gas Refinery, and saw use as defense during a heist of the refinery undertaken by the crew of the Ghost. In the encounter with the TIE/mg, Jedi Padawan Ezra Bridger riding a purrgil—a spacefaring species capable of traveling through hyperspace, and were said to have been what inspired the early development of the hyperdrive—[3] used his lightsaber to sever one of the wings of a Mining Guild TIE fighter.[3]
