TIE Crawler

TIE crawler

"You know what we need? A TIE fighter with tank-treads."
"Oh, good grief."
"We'll call it... the TIE crawler."
"Let's call it the Century Tank."
"Ooh, I like that. Why Century Tank?"
"Because it's the dumbest idea in a century.
―Santhe Corporation industrialists

TIE crawlers, or Century tanks, were TIE fighter cockpits mounted between two tank-treads. They retained the features of a TIE fighter: no shielding, light armor, filled with weak points in structural integrity; in addition, they removed the one strategic advantage of TIE fighters, i.e., their maneuverability. At least they stuck a big turbolaser on it, so they could blow things up... if they survived. TIE crawlers made for great target practice. On rough terrain, the weak point between the cockpit and tread sometimes snapped, leaving the crawler helpless. Sometimes they went haywire and began somersaulting.

This article is called TIE crawler. TIE crawler has been written from a simple, Ric Olié point of view. A non-simple version of TIE crawler can be read on Darthipedia. Darthipedia is the Star Wars Humor Wiki.

The Galactic Empire didn't use them much, but after the Rebel Alliance won the Galactic Civil War, a bunch of TIE crawlers were sold at clearance prices to the Imperial Remnant.
