Personally, I liked the leaflet load for the TIE Bomber.

Of course, you could cover the leaflets in contact poison, and/or radioactive tracker dye, if you wanted to...


I saw a variant of this in Vampire: the Masquerade, namely the book New York By Night. Long story short, two opposing factions of vampires are trying to claim New York. One side decides to (non-fatally) irradiate a supply of blood that the other side will use as sustenance. As a result, the first faction uses a fleet of helicopters each equipped with cameras, heat sensors and Giger counters. Once those helicopters encounter and photograph people who give off a radiation signature but don't show up on the heat sensors, that's how the first faction knows they found and positively identified vampires of the enemy faction....

I always presumed they ARE used later. Why no strikers? Those are ground based fighters for use in atmosphere, and so would only be seen on an Imperial ground base. These armored ones? You wouldn't want those in an attack wing where there are x-wings and a-wings about to hammer them.. you might see them patroling Ord Mantel though..


But unless we make more novels/films on the org trilogy and such to SHOW it we have no real ties to prove they exist..
