The TIE/HU "Hunter" multi-role starfighter was a starfighter from the TIE Series used during the Galactic Civil War by the Galactic Empire. It was developed by the Empire as a direct means of countering the Rebel Alliance's T-65 X-wings.The Hunter had a wing configuration which resembled a reverse TIE Interceptor. Similar to the X-wing, it had S-foils which meant they would be opened during combat and closed during normal flight. Unlike most other TIEs of the time, the TIE/HU came equipped with a hyperdrive and shields, making them more valued than the basic fighters the Empire utilized. It's improved ion engines ensured that it was one of the fastest fighters in the Imperial fleet, having a top speed in the range between that of a standard TIE Fighter and TIE Interceptors. This single seat craft was armed with two laser cannons, two ion cannons, and a torpedo launcher.Creator's NoteI based my TIE Hunter on many attributes of FFG's X-wing since the Hunter was designed to be the direct counter to it. I increased the speed by 1 from the X-wing not only because it's a TIE, but also because it's historically the fastest TIE in the Imperial fleet. Since the FFG Interceptors are already 5 speed, I decided to compromise on 4. I also gave it swarm because it's an agile TIE, as well as Escort and Bomber - again because of the similarities to the X-wing.You may buy 3D printed TIE Hunters here! - https://www.shapeways.com/product/XMSSCLMN6/armada-12x-tie-hunter?optionId=57226077
