The TIE/gt is a specially-equipped TIE fighter used for carrying bombs and torpedoes to support ground troops. It was the predecessor to the TIE Bomber, but was a bit more maneuverable. Based on the standard TIE/ln, it measured 6.3 meters in length and was armed with a single laser cannon and a concussion missile launcher.

With the retirement of the Z-95 by the Empire, a tactical niche was left empty, that of an aerospace attack fighter. To fill that gap, the TIE Fighter was modified with an extended fuselage, holding a light concussion missile laucher. Intended to destroy ground installations and heavy vehilces rather than infantry units, the use of the armour-penetrating concussion missiles replaced proton weapons to save weight. The cost of the new weapon was in engine efficiency: it isn't as fast as the TIE Fighter. For self-defense and strafing, it a single laser cannon found of the model found on the TIE Fighter.
