Conceived as "[Darth] Vader's secret advanced Tie-Fighter project," the handful of TIE-X ships in existence "were built to be the most agile in the Empire, carrying out secret missions for Vader across the galaxy." Trigger warning: those of you who honor Star Wars cannon might retreat from your screens when you get to the TIE-X flanks and what look like four exhaust ports. For those who don't know (which includes me - I had to look all this up), the "TIE" in TIE Fighter stands for Twin Ion Engine. The large, glowing aperture in the center of a traditional TIE Fighter is a Sienar Fleet Systems (SFS) I-a2b Solar Ionization Reactor. On either side of that is where you'll find the two miniscule, glowing red exhaust ports for the SFS P-s4 Twin Ion Engine System. Behold the liberties taken with the TIE-X at your own risk. We recommend you enjoy every one of those liberties in the large gallery above.
