TIE fighters featured large solar collectors on either side of the cockpit

Solar collectors[1] also called solar arrays,[2] solar-collecting arrays,[3], solar gather panels[4] and simply solar panels[5] were devices that captured solar radiation for producing energy.[1] The wing panels of the TIE/ln space superiority starfighters used by the Galactic Empire had six solar arrays each, with energy accumulator lines running back and forth beneath the panels.[2] The collected energy was then channeled through a reactor to fire emissions from a high-pressure radioactive gas stored in a ventral fuel tank.[6] The TIE/fo space superiority fighter of the First Order used similar, yet improved, technology.[3]
