Forums > Senate Hall archive > TIE/in page wrong

Didnt want to up and change it but to the wookieepedia admins the TIE/in page is wrong the TIE/IN and TIE Interceptor are two completely different vehicles. The TIE/IN was a heaver version of the standard tie outfited to carry ordnance.Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • Source please? Also, this might be more appropriate in the Senate Hall or even, oh, I don't know, the talk page for that article. Cull Tremayne 14:18, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

There is this article in the wikia about the TIE/In

And if your refer too SWG the TIE/In is not a interceptor. Calling a TIE interceptor a TIE/In is wrong. What the TIE/In was, is the standard TIE that was modified to carry up too 6 proton torpedos. Sometimes they were even outfited with skids for support. The new standard TIE/ln fighter is visually distinguished from its basic TIE predecessor by the darker hue of its primary hull alloys. Faster and more durable, it still lacks hyperspace capabilities, but may be capable of more extended sublight flight, such as the pursuit of the Millennium Falcon from Hoth. The manufacture of a single TIE/ln is supposed to cost 60000 credits

"The newer TIE/ln fighter achieves a higher performance.

Although he commissioned the advanced technology of the Death Star, Grand Moff Tarkin's realm (in the Outer Rim Territories) was a galactic backwater, and so his starfighters might not have been the latest models. Within a few years, these basic white hulled TIEs were replaced by darker versions (at least in Lord Vader's fleet and the forces that gathered at Endor). The latter are unambiguously identified as the TIE/ln design. The former design, Tarkin's white-hulled TIE fighters, are also short-range craft and not hyperspace-capable."

Here is a link for a picture of the TIE/In swajtie3.gif

I believe you can also check the sourcebook.Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • You should note that the TIE/ln and the TIE/In are different vessels. The Fighter is a lowercase "L" while the Interceptor is an uppercase "i." Why they did it this way is baffling, but it's the canon way it's been done. jSarek 04:05, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
    • Lol, that's confusing. --Eyrezer 02:45, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
    • Humm. Does the Ln part stand for something or mean something? -Fnlayson 14:13, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Apparently, it means Line Starfighter. Aybfreak (Happy now?) 14:34, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
