The TIE Defender Expansion Pack is a supplement to the Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight Games. The expansion features a detailed miniature of the TIE/D Defender. It was released on June 26, 2014 as part of the game's fourth wave of expansions.

Publisher's summary[]

When it was first released shortly before the Battle of Endor, the TIE defender was perhaps the most technologically advanced starfighter in the galaxy. It improved upon the design of the TIE fighter by adding shields, a hyperdrive, and more powerful weaponry.

In X-Wing, the TIE defender is a lethal starfighter that features three attack, three agility, three hull, and three shields. Imperial players can further load it up with both cannon and missile upgrades, and because only the Empire's most elite pilots were allowed to fly the TIE defender during the Galactic Civil War, both of the unique pilots among the expansion's four ship cards come with the elite talent upgrade.


The TIE Defender Expansion Pack contains one miniature, plus a maneuver dial and action tokens, as well as pilot and upgrade cards.
