"All TIE bombers, commence bombardment. Set the skies on fire if you have to, but find those ships."
"Aye-aye, captain. I love my job."
―An Imperial captain and a TIE pilot[src]

The TIE/sa bomber, also known as the TIE bomber,[7] was a bombing variant of the TIE line used by the Galactic Empire, and was their main source of anti-emplacement air-support.[8]


A decade after the rise of the Empire, one was deployed by the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Ultimatum in order to attack the mobile refinery Forager used by the corrupt Count Denetrius Vidian.[9]

Three years before the Battle of Yavin, TIE/ sa bombers were being launched from a Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier above Ryloth to attack Cham Syndulla's rebel cell. When the Lothal rebel cell attacked, trying to capture the carrier, most TIE bombers were shot down by the rebels, manning gun stations on the carrier.[10]

At least one was present aboard the Death Star during the Battle of Yavin.[11] After the Battle of Hoth, they were sent to flush the Millennium Falcon out from the asteroid field it was hidden in.[5]

The bombers also played a role during Imperial reprisal raids after the Battle of Endor.[12]
