The TIE Corps is the first option for enforcing the will of the Emperor's Hammer. Whether engaging in space superiority, reconnaissance, assault, or simple patrol, the TIE Corps is the most flexible and vital arm of the fleet. The skilled pilots rely upon a variety of starfighter weapons to perform their critical missions. Upon completion of this course, the student will be familiar with the various starfighter weapons, their capabilities, and characteristics. Course material was accumulated and research conducted using the X-Wing Alliance (XWA) simulator. Weapon trends remain similar across other flying platforms, but statistical values may vary.
Starfighter Weapons Overview
The purpose of all starfighter weapons is to inflict damage and destruction upon the enemy at range. Damage is measured in BLS units, while range is measured in kilometers. All weapons travel at specific speeds, given in MegaLight Units (MGLT). Shields, if equipped, and Hull Armor are designed to resist damage. They are measured in Shield Base Durability (SBD) and Resistance Units (RU), respectively.
