Star Wars Tie predator - Legacy Era
About this creation


Considered a successor to the older TIE/IN interceptor, the Predator-class fighter was still highly maneuverable and heavily armed, but unlike most previous TIEs, it was also equipped with hyperdrives and a deflector shield generated through its blade-shaped wings. As with the earlier Chiss Clawcraft, these wings could adjust to a variety of positions, aiding the starfighters maneuverability. They folded back fully for docking mode. However, the complex technologies packed inside the wings of the Predator were a maintenance nightmare. In addition, the standard redesigned viewport offered poor visibility due to its narrow horizontal panes separated by thick struts.
After much lobbying, the Imperial Navy convinced Sienar to produce Predator-class fighters with classic TIE-style cockpits that were flown by squadron leaders. Other pilots flew fighters with horizontal slats across the front of the central fuselage.













The Predator-class fighters served as the primary fighter craft for the Fel Empire during the Sith-Imperial war. After the war's end they continued to stay in use throughout the Second Imperial Civil War in service to both the Empire-in-exile and Krayt's Empire until the Sith-Imperial starfighter came into service in the latter to supplant them.
In 130 ABY, Predator-class fighters were used by Moff Rulf Yage forces in the attack on the Jedi Praxeum on Ossus. When a Jedi transport attempted to flee, they moved to shoot it down but were intercepted by Cade Skywalker's in a X-83 TwinTail starfighter, who managed to defeat several Predators before being shot down, buying time for the Jedi transport to escape.
Imperial Knights would commonly fly Predator-class fighters. In 137 ABY, Antares Draco and Ganner Krieg would take two of those fighters to Vendaxa to save Princess Marasiah Fel from the Sith.
The Outer Rim Third Fleet used these fighters at the Battle of Dac.

Excellent work. I admit to not being versed in the Star Wars extended universe so I appreciate whenever I get to see a glimpse into it, and this makes it seem very interested indeed. :)

I never read the Legacy comics...looks like maybe I should have, 'cause this is one cool fighter. Your model looks great, probably better that LEGO would make. The angling of the wing plates is superb and I love how the wings fold back. Great job.

Awesome!! This is really well done and so close to the concept art, and I had no clue this variant existed either! Might I suggest using some light grey slopes and adding some greebling onto the back of the wings where they connect? I feel that would really bring it up a notch. Just a suggestion though :) Very cool- 5/5

It never ceases to amaze me how many variants of the tie fighter there are. You certainly did a brilliant job recreating this one! Those panels look slick. Excellent!

Quoting Big Chief Uber Guy Oscar Wow! I have never even heard of this TIE Variant. Are you going to build the X-83?
No, because honestly I don't like, but I would like build the Pellaeon star destroyer
