[SIZE=10pt]Intent:[/SIZE][SIZE=10pt] To develop a light fighter for the Sith Empire, capable of being utilized in both the interceptor and space superiority roles.
Development Thread: N/A
Manufacturer: Subach-Innes/Seinar Fleet Systems
Model: Light Fighter
Affiliation: Sith Empire
Material: Quadanium alloy
Description: Another vessel retrieved from [/SIZE]the scrapyards of Raxus Prime was an Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor, of the type used by Jedi centuries ago. This too was dissected, in order to create a light fighter the Sith Empire could utilize themselves. The result was the TIE-looking "Eta-66" light fighter, direct descendent of the Eta-2, masterful meshing of TIE technology with that of the Jedi starfighter, and a direct opponent to the Eta-6 starfighter used by the Jedi.
When compared to the Eta-6 variations used by the Jedi, the "TIE Harbinger," as Imperial military stocks call it, is competitive. Better armed overall than the standard variation, the Harbinger has no ion cannons(but does have missiles), and is a tad weaker than the Eta-6 due to its more archaic structural design, though it can last longer on the battlefield(thanks to its superior longevity) and has an integrated hyperdrive. Despite its near-equal performance, the TIE Harbinger suffers from(typically) inferior pilots who don't utilize the Force, meaning that realistically, it'll likely be destroyed.
