  • TIE Heavy Bomber
rdfs:comment
  • The Heavy TIE Bomber was a starfighter used by the Galactic Empire for heavy assault and mobile artillery missions. The Heavy TIE Bomber could be used in space and atmospheric conditions. The spacecraft was an enhancement to the standard TIE/sa bomber, having dual weapons pods in the place of the original single payload module. In a ground assault vehicle role, the Heavy Bomber was very effective at destroying mechanized and heavy weapons units such as T3-B heavy attack tank and artillery. In addition the Heavy TIE Bomber was most effective at destroying enemy power cores.
  • The TIE Heavy Bomber was seen as a great improvement upon the original bomber. Several rectified problems included shielding and slightly improved agility. Its heavy armor was kept, so it was only slightly faster than a regular TIE Bomber. The basic weapons of two laser cannons had been kept, but they had been swapped for the Ls-7.2 Laser cannons from the Defender, which do not overheat quickly. It had two bomb bays stacked on top of one another. These bomb bays could hold many armaments, but these payloads were preferred:
