"The Inquisitor's TIE."
"Well, we know he's not gonna use it."
"You know what, kid? You worry me sometimes."
―Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger[src]

The Inquisitor's TIE Advanced was the personal TIE Advanced v1 prototype TIE fighter entrusted to the Grand Inquisitor in his mission to hunt down Jedi for the Galactic Empire.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This TIE Advanced was equipped with a cockpit access hatch, targeting sensors and solar collectors. Its special folding wings allowed it greater speed than the 1,200 kph[2] of a standard TIE fighter. It boasted an armament of two laser cannons and could carry up to 20 missile shells.[3] Unlike the production version of the v1, the Inquisitor's personal ship also had life support in the cockpit, allowing it to be flown without a flight suit if desired. Unlike most other TIE models, the v1 was outfitted with a hyperdrive and basic shields.

History[edit | edit source]

On the Empire Day celebration on Lothal five years before the Battle of Yavin, the Inquisitor used it to pursue rogue Jedi Padawan Kanan Jarrus and the Spectres after a "terrorist attack" in Capital City.[5] Later, following the Inquisitor's death aboard the Sovereign, Jarrus and Ezra Bridger stole it to escape the exploding Star Destroyer and rejoin with their own transport.[6]

According to General Antoc Merrick, following the action at Mustafar, Capin Harinar and his crew had a merry time taking the ship apart.[7]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In 2014, Hasbro made a toy of the Inquisitor's TIE advanced prototype as part of their Saga legends/Rebels line. There are 2 variants, one with green missiles and one with red.

Star Wars Rebels: Head to Head gives the length of a TIE Advanced v1 as 3.57 meters, but Star Wars Rebels: Beware the Inquisitor! states that the Inquisitor's TIE measures 9.2 meters in length. This article assumes the former source correct.
