                Note: The plasma torch boarding device is mounted on the ship's airlock system. The controls are just inside the main airlock. Roll         the target ship's hull -2D; if the torch scores a lightly damaged,result, it has breached the hull. Once the hull is breached, the torch requires a full minute to cut a one-meter-wide by one-meter-high hole. The extendable boarding tube attaches to the hull and forms an air-tight seal in 30 seconds.

Description: The TIE/br boarding shuttle, also known as the TIE Boarding Craft or Imperial boarding craft, was a variant of the TIE/sa bomber used for boarding and troop transportation.

The TIE/br boarding shuttle had an enlarged, hollow secondary pod with clamps and a hull-cutter. The primary pod was also large enough to be capable of retrieving escape pods. Although they generally were in the same design basis as the TIE/sa bomber, some had the pods inverted.

It was used to deliver small stormtrooper boarding parties onto captured or disabled ships when larger vessels such as the Gamma-class assault shuttle were not appropriate for the task. Unlike most craft in the TIE Series, the boarding craft was equipped with landing gear and was able to land on a hangar deck instead of in an overhead launch rack. Passengers could then disembark via a boarding ramp. It could also retrieve any life pods if an S.O.S. signal was transmitting.

In some cases, such as requiring a quick air extraction, the TIE/br was also equipped with a droplift ladder.

A TIE/br was used by Darth Vader in the capture of Princess Leia's CR90 corvette, Tantive IV, in 0 BBY. A TIE/br designated boarding craft 356 was hijacked by Han Solo and Sharlee after infiltrating and taking out its crew by using a life pod and SOS signal, in an attempt to ensure the planet of Constancia remained free from Imperial involvement and for Luke to deliver a message to the planet. A TIE Boarding Craft was also utilized by the T'Syriél members of the Stormtrooper Corps helmed by the Kaleesh warlord, General Bentilais san Sk'ar, to capture Princess Leia Organa and Aron Peacebringer on Shiva IV.
