Sienar Fleet Systems Republic T.I.E. Fighter v2

The Republic TIE, is one of the oldest serving craft from Sienar Fleet Systems, used by the Old Republic it first saw service during the Clone Wars.

Armed only with 2 medium class lasers and lacking shields its agility made up for its weakness. The Republic TIE was often deployed in overwhelming numbers to compensate for its weakness.

After the Wars, production of the Republic TIE was brought to a halt, due to the takeover of Sienar Fleet Systems by the Empire and the introduction of faster craft.

In later year the Republic TIE, now an old craft can still be found in small numbers in remote Outer Rim Sectors, used by pirate clans.

Clutch
Concept Design by: John Mayers

Clutch v2

The Clutch consisted of a TIE/LN starfighter ball cockpit and ion engines and three triangular fins set 120 apart with one fin above the cockpit and two below. Windows were cut into the side of the ball cockpit to give the pilot a better field of vision. Clutches were slightly slower than X-wing fighters but more maneuverable, and also had an unusual, but convenient, layout of controls, featuring a couple of pedals used for cutting quick turns, and the thrust and repulsor throttles could be turned off by pulling their respective knobs out--which the starfighter was wired to read as compensating to halt the movement in question, rather than merely ceasing thrust. This allowed a pilot to kill his ship's movement with a quick yank and re-engage it just as quickly, possibly with a quick turn added in there to further shake attackers.

Unlike Imperial TIE Series starfighters, the Clutch had basic shields, granting it better survivability. Weaponry consisted of two laser cannons mounted below the cockpit, similar to the TIE fighter. The Clutch also had an ion cannon mounted on the tip of the top fin. The lower two fins served as landing gear.

Though Clutches were sometimes referred to as "tri-fighters", they were not to be confused with the earlier droid tri-fighters used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the later years of the Clone Wars.

TIE Raptor

TIE Raptor v2

The TIE/rpt starfighter, or TIE Raptor, was an unofficial, smaller variant of the standard TIE Fighter.

Like all TIE Series craft, the Raptor had a spherical cockpit with an octagonal forward window, but rather than the usual large wings on either side, it had four short fins protruding directly from the cockpit assembly at right angles to one another. Although not as fast as a TIE Interceptor, it was as maneuverable as an A-wing, and heavily armed, with four laser cannons and two concussion missile tubes. A few prototypes were also equipped with shields.

The TIE Raptor appeared in the years after the Battle of Endor and was designed by Warlord Zsinj's engineers in his shipyards at Dathomir for the exclusive use of his faction's forces.

Sienar Fleet Systems played no role in the project aside from creating the original TIE series design lineage, and the Raptor saw little or no use among units of the Imperial Navy loyal to central authorities. The name "Raptor" appears to have been a particular favorite of Zsinj's, as he also bestowed it on his black-armored elite commandos.

Although many TIE Raptors may have survived the collapse of Zsinj's authority, they do not seem to have played a significant role thereafter.
