"There might have been some trouble with the pre-launch check list, the crews aren't used to dealing with the hyperdrives on these new TIE scouts."
"If so, it's a deficiency they need to correct. Launch practice, Captain, beginning now. Please see to it personally."
Captain Dagon Niriz and Admiral Thrawn[src]

The TIE/sr starfighter, or TIE scout, was a limited production TIE series starfighter used by the Galactic Empire as a scout and light reconnaissance vessel. It was one of the many TIE variants in service during the Galactic Civil War.

CharacteristicsEdit

At 24 meters long, the TIE/sr was one of the largest TIE variants, and it was distinctive in appearance, with a tall, elongated main fuselage behind the cockpit, flanked by large, bent-wing solar panels. Although slow and not very maneuverable by starfighter standards, neither heavily armored nor heavily armed, it boasted an impressive suite of com-scan equipment, and its enlarged hull could accommodate a crew of up to three, sometimes including a second pilot.

The most notable feature of the TIE scout was that it carried the most capable hyperdrive of any TIE variant. In contrast to the TIE/rc starfighter and TIE Vanguard fighters, which were capable of only sublight reconnaissance ahead of their carrier, the TIE scout could undertake extended lightspeed missions without being at the mercy of a capital ship, like most other TIE models.

It was also capable of making a sensor ping that could reveal unseen enemies.

The TIE scout proved to be too expensive for mass production.

Civilian modelEdit

Unlike most other TIE designs, the TIE scout also had a civilian variant, the Lone Scout-A, designed as an exploration vessel and armed with a single chin-mounted cannon. This variant could carry three passengers and supplies for up to a year, and boasted a cargo capacity comparing favorably with many light freighters: up to 60 cubic meters by volume, or 150 metric tons by weight. Since the Lone Scout-A had shields, the design was still used by the Imperial Navy, as the TIE scout was in need of supplementary designs.

HistoryEdit

CCG Limited Premier

A TIE scout.

Several TIE scouts were carried aboard Thrawn's flagship, Admonitor, when he was posted to the Unknown Regions. They may have been design ancestors of the similarly-sized TIE-variant scout ships later used by Household Phalanx pilots based at the Hand of Thrawn.
