Aftermath of Yavin

The first TIE Bomber Advanced was developed by Captain Tomax Brenthe, part of the team who designed the TIE Advanced, using some leftover parts and a prototype Bomber. By taking half of the weapons hardpoints out, they were able to squeeze in a lightweight ray shield generator, and part of a hyperdrive. The rest of the hyperdrive and extra consumables were placed into an extension around the connector between the weapons and cockpit pods. Because part of the machinery is mounted on the weapons drum, it requires special connections to be able to draw power. These have been found to be prone to breakage due to wear, but the wings that have them consider the extra maintenance duties to be worthwhile. Because of the hyperdrive, an enlarged power generator had to be installed. Because the hyperdrive only draws excess power while in operation, the Sienar engineers also gave the Bomber Advanced the lasers of the TIE/ln . In addition, the repulsorlifts and landing gear of the TIE Commando have been installed, making them more suitable of remote field operations. Only a small handful of wings are considered politically reliable enough to give these craft to, but for those wings it also provides the ability to have strike craft available to back-up thier TIE/ad's. Overall, the TIE Bomber Advanced is popular in the limited wings it is employed in.
