The TIE Advanced x1 was an advanced prototype starfighter that was part of the TIE line manufactured by Sienar Fleet Systems. An update of the TIE Advanced v1 prototype, the TIE Advanced x1 featured a highly sophisticated target tracking system, making them useful against deflector shield generators. Several years before the Battle of Yavin, the Sith Lord Darth Vader piloted a TIE Advanced without any backup into the midst of a rebel fleet in a daring attack that resulted in the destruction of the rebels' flagship, Phoenix Home. Later, during the Battle of Yavin, Vader again piloted a TIE Advanced x1 to pursue and eliminate the Rebel fighters attacking the first Death Star. In this, he was almost entirely successful, until his fighter was unexpectedly knocked out of the battle when a TIE/LN starfighter collided with it after a surprise attack by the Millennium Falcon. After the collision, Vader spun out of control into space, and thereby escaped the destruction of the Death Star.
