Description: While the excellent Scimitar Assault Bomber was being developed, a number of stop-gap Tie Bombers were developed and tested. The Tie Hammer was one of these, it consisted of a tie fighter control pod attached to three Tie Bomber bomb bays. While this gave the Hammer truly fantastic firepower, it unfortunately made it clumsy to pilot, and slow, which led to the design being dropped. However when supplies of Scimitars and other new fighter began to dry up during the long conflict with the New Republic, the Empire resurrected this design because it could be readily pieced together from Tie Fighter and Tie Bomber spare parts, and also using damaged Tie's. While the Tie Hammer has never performed spectacularly for the Empire, its firepower has swung a number of battles when Republic support and capital ships have been forced to withdraw from combat under the withering fire of a squadron of Tie Hammers. And while the Empire now has sufficient chance to start rebuilding their fleets and squadrons, Tie Hammers are likely to remain active for some time to come.
