The TIE Striker









I saw this at the Rogue One exhibit at Star Wars Celebration Europe at the weekend.

Looks like the wings fold.

According to various web sources, it is designed to operate within an atmoshpere - like an aircraft.

I assume it has no ceiling, and we won't know it's speed and turn radius until we see it in the movie, but I will guess it has 2 days of fuel just like the other TIEs.

I note it's wings are not curved so the wings should generate no lift, but given the Empire's repulsorlift technology, it probably doesn't need any.

I Can't WAIT! Very Happy

Yea, from the site i saw it mentioned about (along with an AT-AT cargo version), it was said that its MORE for atmospheric control of airspace, rather than in space itself, though it can work up there too.
