Characteristics

A TIE boarding craft participates in a kidnapping mission on Shiva IV.

The TIE boarding craft had an enlarged, hollow secondary pod with clamps and a hull-cutter.

It was used to deliver small stormtrooper boarding parties onto captured or disabled ships when larger vessels such as the Gamma-class assault shuttle were not appropriate for the task. Unlike most craft in the TIE series, the boarding craft was equipped with landing gear and was able to land on a hangar deck instead of in an overhead launch rack. Passengers could then disembark via a boarding ramp.

History

A TIE boarding craft was used by Darth Vader in the capture of Princess Leia's CR90 corvette, Tantive IV, in 0 BBY.

Behind the scenes

TIE boarding craft concept art.

This ship was designed for the very first Star Wars film, but the exterior model would not make it into any scenes. The design would be resurrected for The Empire Strikes Back as the TIE bomber and the TIE shuttle.
