Armed with 3 proton torpedo launchers, 2 light concussion missile launchers and a light laser cannon, the TIE Torpedo Bomber flew as fast as a TIE-LN, with no shielding and delivered hard hitting strikes with pinpoint accuracy. The TIE-TB also featured 2 SLAM engines for increased speeds to evacuate areas of danger.
About this creation
Here is my latest MOC, a TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber, also known originally as Torpedo Launcher.

Do not look for this TIE craft in any of the movies, anime, or comic books as you will not find it. It is based on the 3D model created in the early nineties par Marco SPitoni for his excellent animation fanfilm: Join the Empire. (Look from 27" and also in the credits)

I then decided to build it using my bricks in order to complete and expand further my LEGO TIE collection.

This side view shows the technic beam used to link the top wing to the TIE body. It provides structural strength and thanks to it, you can play with the TIE and replicate any kind of space combat.

The rear side offers a view on an unusual feature for a TIE craft: the presence of 2 distinctive engines under the wing:

Here is a shot at the top wing global shape. Note that the middle section was built using an odd number of studs in order to respect the symmetry with the body and the support pylon.

And of course, it is on scale with other TIE sets. ;)

Comments welcome.
