|"hey look, a place to babble! I love the TIE design, and especially the tech of it. Though I always wondered if they suffered from the "Korean War American Jet" issues, in that when supersonic flight was achieved an engagement could simply be abandoned by a faster-moving enemy. In this case, I wonder about the thoughts of Stormtroopers (a fighting force absolutely steeped in the ongoing idea of TIE from thier days in the ETA class fighters used during the clone wars). "Oh boy. Hey, lets go chase these rebels with our "substantially slower TIE powerplants" and watch our foes just peel off in front of us as they push the hyperdrive button." Maybe when you're shadowed by a Star Destroyer you don't worry about that sorta thing. "|
