Description: The Tie Flat is a new design of Tie Fighter made for maximum manueverability and minimum profile as an enemy target, a role it succeeds at magnificently. The slimline vessel has extra thrusters, and its low profile makes it far harder to target, the horizontal wing also helps in atmospheric control and means that the Tie Flat can actually glide for a short distance should it lose power. However the loss of one solar panel coupled with the addition of a shield generator has meant a loss of speed, and meant that no other weapons could be put into the vessel making it no great advance over the original Tie Fighter. This has left the Tie Flat only being bought in limited numbers for specialty squadrons, the high manueverability making it a popular choice for those in, or around, asteroid fields.
