    Comments: With its vast space fleet, the Imperial Navy is a model of military efficiency. The best pilots in its ranks are rigorously trained to useto use highly maneuverable and heavily armed Twin Ion Engine (TIE) fighters. The small ships are used to both attack - and defend against - Rebel forces.

    Unlike the stormtroopers, TIE pilots wear black plastisteel protective armor over an insulated high-gravity body glove. Their reinforced helemt features polarized lenses, a navigational computerlink-up screen, a vocoder, and breathing filters. Two gas transfer hoses connect from the helmet to a chestplate control unit which contains an emergency atmospheric unit and control switches for the armor functions. Tightly sealed wrist gauntlets allow dexterity in handling TIE Fighter controls, while positive-gravity pressure boots keepthe pilot well anchored even in zero-gravity situations.

    TIE fighter pilots are often brash and cocky, believing they hold tremendous power in their hands each time they take control of their craft. Taught to be the best, many believe they are the best. That overconfidence has ended more than a few careers, as Rebel Pilots have proven them wrong in battles above the Death Star battle station and elsewhere. Despite their elite ranking within the Navy, TIE Fighter pilots are seen as a replaceable resource by the Empire. Their ships are not equipped with ejection systems, nor much life-support equipment. As with all servants of the Empire, fighter squads are trained to willingly offer their lives in support of Emperor Palpatine's commands and decrees.

    Point of Interest: Parts of the sculpt of the TIE Fighter Pilot was used for the Cruisemissile Trooper pilot figure.
