The TIE Interdictor, also known as the Advanced TIE Bomber, was a heavy bomber in service to the Galactic Empire.

CharacteristicsEdit

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.

HistoryEdit

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.

During the attack on Cloud City in 3 ABY, eight bombers were sent in as support units to occupy the city.

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.

Three of them are provided to the player at the beginning of the Galactic Empire's non-canonical Battle of Endor mission.
