The TIE walker was developed shortly after the TIE crawler but was never
put into mass production due to several events resulting in the death of
the clone emperor and the destruction of his flagship, the Eclipse.
The TIE walker consists of a standard TIE command pod mounted on top of
a servo-mount with six thin insect-like legs. The command pod retains
much of the same basic design components as the standard TIE/ln with
the chin mounted laser cannons being replaced with a pair of lighter
blaster cannons. The ingress/egress hatch remains on the top and where
the pylons connecting the solar arrays on the TIE/ln there are concussion
The TIE walker's intended role was similar to that of the old AT-PTs used by
the Old Republic. They would be deployed in platoon strength, turning a
standard assault trooper into a walking arsenal.
TIE walkers can easily manage to cross even the most difficult terrain using
their thin yet reinforced legs that each have grasping claws on the footpads.
The entire command pod can rotate in any direction fully to allow the pilot
to fire in any direction, regardless of the direction the walker may be
Those New Republic troops that have encountered TIE walkers in combat
have nicknamed it the "bug" due to its insect like appearance.
