About this creation
The Predator-class TIE fighter, nicknamed Eyeballs by the Alliance, was a starfighter produced by Sienar Fleet Systems and used by the new Galactic Empire as of 130 ABY. Considered a successor to the older TIE/In starfighter, the Predator-class fighter was still highly maneuverable and heavily armed, but unlike most previous TIEs, it was also equipped with hyperdrives and a deflector shield generated through its blade-shaped wings. As with the earlier Chiss Clawcraft, these wings could adjust to a variety of positions, aiding the starfighter's maneuverability. They folded back fully for docking mode.
