Early Reporting on the TIE Silencer
Back in January, Jason reported on a rumor about Kylo Ren’s personalized new ship for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Back then he thought the ship might be called a TIE Advanced much like Darth Vader’s.
The ship, like some of his new costume, will seem a little familiar as it is a First Order TIE Advanced.
In May Jason updated with an image of the unique TIE ship. And we got some cool Kylo Ren rumors as well.
Now, Starwars.com has a databank entry for the cool new First Order vehicle.
Reminiscent in design of the Empire’s TIE interceptor and Darth Vader’s TIE advanced, Kylo Ren’s TIE silencer is an angular fighter equipped with laser cannons and missile launchers. Ren is an expert pilot–thanks to skills passed down from his father–which he puts to use in exploiting his ship’s speed and ferocity. There is no other First Order craft like the TIE silencer, and it is an effective tool in Ren’s mission to destroy the Resistance.
