- "Those must be the new TIE Hunters. Be careful, they're deadly!"
- — Crix Madine
The TIE Hunter is a starfighter from the TIE series used near-exclusively by the Galactic Empire's storm commandos, and as a result it is rarely seen. Oremin is also known to use these fighters for many of the same reasons as the storm commandos, as well as the fact that it doesn't have the same bias as the Imperial Navy.
The craft is produced in limited quantities and performs relatively well, but as a result of internal debates within Naval Command for and against using weapons improved with the enemy's designs, the TIE Hunter doesn't see use outside of the storm commandos.
When the S-Foils of the TIE Hunter are locked in attack position, the fighter's top speed is 115 MGLT, but the fighter's closed wing configuration redirects all energy intended for the energy cannons. No weapons can be fired while the wings are in closed position since all available energy is transferred to the craft's advanced twin ion engines, thereby increasing the fighters max speed to 135 MGLT. The torpedo load, coupled with high speed, makes it an effective assault fighter.
