A completely automated TIE fighter introduced into the Imperial fleet at the Battle of Calamari. The TIE/D fighter is almost identical to a typical TIE fighter, with the exception of its unique, rectangular wings and advanced Cybot Galactica Ace-6 fighter units. These computerized pilots can be programmed and upgraded with new tactics on a continual basis, although they lack the creativity, unpredictability, and inventiveness of human pilots. However, the computerized pilot weights a scant ten kilograms, allowing the TIE/D's designers to increase the starfighter's armor plating without increasing the overall mass of the vehicle. TIE/D fighters can also be controlled remotely from a nearby capital ship.
