The TYE-wing was one of the composite starfighter designs known as "uglies".

Though it was known by a number of names, including TIE-wing, T-wing, Y-ball, TIE-Y, TYE fighter, Die-wing, or simply TYE, it was apparently more standardized than most uglies.

TYE-wings combined the ball cockpit and wing braces of the TIE Fighter with the engine nacelles from the Y-wing. They were armed with two TIE fighter laser cannons, usually had a functional TIE sensor package, and had fair maneuverability. Unfortunately, they had no shields, and although they were faster than many uglies, they were quite slow compared to most mass-produced fighters.

The TYE-wing essentially combined the key weaknesses of both the TIE fighter and the Y-wing, yet had the strengths of neither. Many pilots dubbed them "DIE-wings", as the survival rate of TYE-Wing pilots was appallingly low.

TYE-wings were often found in the service of pirates, notably Kavil's Corsairs and others under the Blazing Claw sigil. They were also found in many private defensive fleets. Some were used by the Imperial Remnant.
