TIE Interceptors are variants of the TIE Fighter, but with a noticeable increase in speed and firepower. They are often used to dispatch enemy ships in aerial combat. The TIE Interceptors are collectively under the call sign "Omega Squadron."
TIE Interceptors have a very similar appearance to the TIE Fighter, except that the Interceptor's wings are facing forwards instead of vertically, and the wings are curved.
They are the counterparts of the A-Wing.
Unlike the TIE Fighter, the Interceptor is more frequent to see in the sky.
