The TIE/wi modified interceptor, also known as the TIE whisper or simply the whisper, was a First Order TIE line interceptor used during the war against the Resistance by Kylo Ren. During the war, Ren used his TIE whisper to confront Rey on Pasaana.
The TIE/wi modified interceptor was a starfighter which was brought up to the exact specification of Supreme Leader Kylo Ren of the First Order. As such, it had increased speed, range, and more firepower than a standard model. It was manufactured by Sienar-Jaemus Fleet Systems and like other starships of the TIE line, had a twin ion engine and its wings were solar collectors, which were similar in appearance to Ren's previous ship, the TIE/vn space superiority fighter. It had four laser cannons at the tip of each wing, and had a round cockpit that featured red designs and an antenna at the rear. The TIE whisper was also equipped with sensor-confusing technology that allowed for a degree of stealth.
The TIE whisper entered service during the war between the First Order and the Resistance, with one used by Ren. Ren used his TIE to confront the Jedi Rey on the desert world Pasaana, during which she jumped over his ship. At another time, Ren traveled to a dark location during a storm using his TIE whisper to again confront Rey.
