The TIE whisper starfighter was a TIE line starfighter that was used by the First Order, which was similar in design to the TIE/wi modified interceptor. It was also similar to the TIE/sf space superiority fighter employed by the same government, although the TIE whisper starfighter had upgraded stealth systems. The TIE whisper had a crew of two, a pilot and a gunner.
The starfighter had two laser cannons under the cockpit, and a lower heavy weapons turret that contained heavy lasers, mag-pulses and concussion missiles. It was the latest in the TIE line, and was a very advanced starfighter. It saw use during the war between the First Order and the Resistance.
