Based on the designs featured in STAR WARS: A New Hope, inspired by the nano scale official sets.
Experimental Aero-TIE. This is a post STAR WARS: Return of the Jedi, created fighter utilised by the Imperial Remnant. Developed to utilise the advantages of a "true" wing, for combat within an atmosphere.
More expensive to produce, these dual form fighters would be used only for planetary defence where a small supply could be kept on standby in the event of a New Republic attack.
I came up with he idea of the aero-TIE back in the late 90's when I was brainstorming ideas for a possible novel pitch for the on going STAR WARS franchise (post Timothy Zahn). But as will so many of my projects, I never got much beyond planning.
The idea was to create an imperial fighter that could out match the X-Wing in a dog fight.
