This is the
Arakeed Viper series Probot. In short, a probe droid. You almost never
see these on their own, unless they are on a reconnaissance mission. The
Empire uses them to attack slow and unarmed ground targets, for instance
civilian buildings. Recently they were used to attack Tatooine. They have
very little in the way of weaponry and one shot will destroy them. However
these babies go out with a boom so be careful.
Twin Ion Engine Fighter (TIE Fighter) is the stock fighter craft of the
Imperial Navy. They are fast, manoeuvrable, but the large solar panels
give the TIE Fighter poor turning ability in the atmosphere. They have
no shields and can't take much abuse. Therefore they are easy to take out.
They tend to fly in squadrons of three like all TIE craft.
TIE Bombers are a real danger when it comes to defending an installation.
They can carry large numbers of free falling energy packets which will
do considerable damage. They are slow and present no real threat to you,
but make sure to take them out first.
sleek TIE Interceptor is your greatest adversary. Hunting in packs, they
are faster, more manoeuvrable and have more weaponry than our fighters,
with the exception of the A-Wing. They are a big problem, and the only
design flaw in them is that they (like all TIE craft) have no shields and
will blow with only a few shots.
The TIE Droid
is a nasty rumour, and hope to the maker that it remains so. In theory,
the TIE Droid would be a cure to the pilot shortage problem of the empire
by eliminating the pilot completely. Droids would make this evil creation
precise and fast. The powerful in-exhaustable source of pilots. Manoeuvring
jets would give TIE Droid the turning circle born of absolute terror. Lets
just hope that these never get built, as it would take a real ace pilot
to even hit it. Then again, that is what homing missiles are for.
trains like this one are limited to run on a repulsor track, at low speeds.
They have little in the way of armour, but one of the carriages and the
break van have been converted into weapons platforms. Imperials are unlikely
to send trains out with no cover, so your greatest danger will be from
WATER BORN FORCES:
were designed to deliver troops to and from remote islands whilst TIE craft
gave it cover. They are hard to hit, strong, but have no weapons and are
