Twin Ion Engine Interdictor
None (can be equipped as upgrade)
The Galactic Empire's TIE Interdictor bomber had wings and a command module which were nearly identical to those found on a TIE/sa bomber. However, the command module was flanked by two twin ordnance pods, for a total of four pods.
This design, for whatever reason, was hardly seen among the numerous other TIE craft of the Imperial Navy. Three of them attacked the Rebel's Massassi Station during the evacuation of Yavin, although they were destroyed by concussive charges placed by General Jan Dodonna.
Several months later, at least one TIE Interdictor was still present along with other Imperial forces at a Kessel Detention Center. The Detention Centers were subsequently liberated by Wookiee forces.
Behind the scenesEdit
Few technical details are provided for this craft in its only appearance, the 2001 video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds. Most of what is known is based on extrapolation from its physical structure and similarity to the TIE Bomber.
