The TIE/sr Starfighter, also known simply as the TIE Scout, is almost unheard of outside military and intelligence circles; at least when compared to more recognizable starships like the TIE/ln Starfighter. During the rise of the Galactic Empire, there was an increase in starship production by various companies who jumped at the rare opportunity and lucrative contracts for new designs. Scout ships have always been an essential element in fleet operations and intelligence gathering, as such one of the many ships commissioned during this period was the TIE/sr Starfighter. The ship was originally manufactured by Sienar Fleet Systems, a company which had already successfully marketed many other starships. The cost of running a galactic government, coupled with the immense size of the fleet required to maintain order, meant that quantity easily trumped quality. As a result, Sienar chose to continue with their previously successful Twin Ion Engine (TIE) base for use in the construction of the scout ship; a cheap and easily mass-produced frame. In order for the TIE Scout to serve its true purpose as an intelligence gathering platform it needed to be equipped for long range reconnaissance, this necessitated that a hyperdrive unit be included in the design. A basic hyperdrive met the intent and still provided more than adequate range and speed when mounted on the starfighter.

Modifications were made to the overall structure of the TIE Scout which provided room for the hyperdrive, data recording devices, sensor suite, and additional personnel and supplies. This resulted in a larger, thicker mid-line for the ship. A final step in the design phase was to increase the size of the wings; making them longer and the introduction of a curve provided better in-flight stability, especially during atmospheric sorties. The TIE Scout, once completed, fulfilled its role perfectly. Unfortunately, the cost per unit was too great for a newly forming government and so only relatively small numbers were purchased. Unwilling to accept a total loss for the project Sienar sold the plans and rights to the Galactic Empire. Afterward, they commissioned a popular civilian variant of the TIE Scout known as the Lone Scout-A.[1]

These starfighters are a take-off of the basic TIE fighter. They are very fragile ships and are the scouts of the Imperal Navy. It has a basic TIE body but with a large square box attached to the back. This is where its sensors and hyperdriver are kept. Its wings are bent, instead of the classic TIE's straight wings. This was done to strengthen the wings, so that they can survive hyperspace. These modifications help the ship in its role as a scout but also make it a less effective fighter. The wings, although stronger, decrease the ship's speed and mobility. The added sensors and hyperdrive force the removal of extra defences and weapons, which makes this ship one of the easiest kills in the galaxy.


After the clone wars the Imperal Navy needed a scout ship. This problem was solved by a commander who simply took a captured hyper drive motivator and attached it to a TIE-Ln. They had to remove the extra armor and boosted the sensors. The current version is only slighly altered from the original by stabilizing the wings. The modern version also has a small decrease in speed because it uses so much power on its sensors.
