#4 TIE/IN Interceptor

We all thought the TIE fighter was pretty sweet when we were introduced to it in A New Hope.  It was new and the iconic TIE engine scream was mimicked by kids everywhere.  Along comes Return of the Jedi and we are introduced to the sleekest, bad ass TIE ever made.  Instead of the straight, vertical wings of the original TIE, the Interceptor’s wings slant over and under its body to give it an aggressive design with greater speed and maneuverability.  Also, instead of the two narrow field laser cannons, the new interceptor has four wing mounted cannons to give it the field of fire equivalent to the X-wing.
