The TIE/sr starfighter, or TIE scout, was a limited production TIE series starfighter used by the Galactic Empire as a scout and light reconnaissance vessel. It was one of the many TIE variants in service during the Galactic Civil War.

Characteristics

At 24 meters long, the TIE/sr was one of the largest TIE variants, and it was distinctive in appearance, with a tall, elongated main fuselage behind the cockpit, flanked by large, bent-wing solar panels. Although slow and not very maneuverable by starfighter standards, neither heavily armored nor heavily armed, it boasted an impressive suite of CommScan equipment, and its enlarged hull could accommodate a crew of up to three, sometimes including a second pilot.

The most notable feature of the TIE scout was that it carried the most capable hyperdrive of any TIE variant. In contrast to the TIE/rc starfighter and TIE Vanguard fighters, which were capable of only sublight reconnaissance ahead of their carrier, the TIE scout could undertake extended lightspeed missions without being at the mercy of a capital ship, like most other TIE models.

It was also capable of making a sensor ping that could reveal unseen enemies.

The TIE scout proved to be too expensive for mass production.

Civilian model

Unlike most other TIE designs, the TIE scout also had a civilian variant, the Lone Scout-A, designed as an exploration vessel and armed with a single chin-mounted cannon. This variant could carry three passengers and supplies for up to a year, and boasted a cargo capacity comparing favorably with many light freighters: up to 60 cubic meters by volume, or 150 metric tons by weight. Since the Lone Scout-A had shields, the design was still used by the Imperial Navy, as the TIE scout was in need of supplementary designs.

History

A TIE scout.

Several TIE scouts were carried aboard Thrawn's flagship, Admonitor, when he was posted to the Unknown Regions. They may have been design ancestors of the similarly-sized TIE-variant scout ships later used by Household Phalanx pilots based at the Hand of Thrawn.
