The TIE/br boarding shuttle[1] was a TIE model used for boarding and troop transportation.[2][3] In the aftermath of the Battle of Scarif, such crafts escorted Darth Vader's shuttle[2] to board the Tantive IV.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

Tieboardingcraft

TIE boarding craft concept art.

The TIE/br boarding shuttle was imagined for Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, in which a twin-pod boarding vehicle was to be seen among the Imperial forces. Although the idea was dropped from Episode IV, the design of the boarding craft was reused for the TIE bomber in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.[5] The TIE/br boarding shuttle, however, ended up making an actual appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.[2][3]
