The TIE Defender was the awesomest starfighter ever built. It was made by ripping up three TIE interceptors and sticking all their wings around one TIE pod. It totally PWNED Rebels. Part of the Galactic Empire's "Project Munchy," it could destroy an Executor-Class Super Saxton Star Dreadbringer in under ten seconds. Darth Awesome had a whole fleet of TIE Defenders that he modified with shields and armor stripped from the Sun Crusher, which Darth Awesome had single-handedly captured, by the way. Maarek Stele was a Defender-flyin' ace.
