Darth Vader Easykit Pocket

Darth Vader?s TIE Advanced. During the Battle of Yarvin, in Star Wars IV: A New Hope, faced with a guerrilla style attack by the Rebel Starfighters, the Empire trusted the seemingly invincible Death Star?s technological superiority to triumph. With the Death Star?s arsenal unable to hit the nimble Starfighters, Darth Vader took command of a squadron of TIE Interceptors. Vader used the TIE Fighter prototype as the basis for the terrifyingly effective TIE Interceptors.

Unlike all other TIE Fighters, this prototype has a deflector shield generator and a simple hyperdrive. Vader?s own customised fighter, the TIE Advanced is armed with heavy twin blaster cannons on fixed mounts, but has no life support systems. The TIE Advanced is characterised by a hull made of duralloy steel, an extended after deck and unique solar cell wings.

The Tie Advanced quickly became one of Darth Vader?s favourite ships. Like all the TIE ships, the prototype has a drive system consisting of twin ion engines. Its solar ionization reactor is reputed to be much more powerful than that of the standard TIE Fighters. The TIE Advanced has proved itself in battle, as it is capable of withstanding many direct hits.

In addition, the pilots? chances of survival were considerably enhanced by the incorporation of a hyperdrive system, which enables the ship to escape from hopeless battle situations.
