The TIE Hunter was a starfighter from the TIE series used during the Galactic Civil War by the Galactic Empire. The TIE Hunter was used exclusively by storm commandos, and as a result it was rarely seen and was something of an enigma.***
Its wing configuration was roughly the reverse of a TIE/In starfighter. Similar to the T-65 X-wing starfighter, the TIE Hunter possessed S-foils, which meant that they would open in attack mode and close in normal flight. Unlike most other contemporary TIEs of the time, TIE Hunters were equipped with a hyperdrive, making them more valuable than most starfighters the Galactic Empire utilized. They also had shield generators, enabling them to take more damage in combat. They were equipped with a weapon load-out identical to that of the BTL Y-wing starfighter; two twin laser cannons, two ion cannons, and two proton torpedo launchers.***

Hey everyone! Not very many notes today, sorry! I'm going out of town for the weekend so I'm short on time! That explains all the bad and few photos. I'll edit it this when I get back.
I'll be honest. I stink at making ships so this is the best I can do. This is entry for the CABGOII so we'll see if I make it to the last around. But, I made it into round three! Wish me luck, and thanks for looking!!
