The TIE/sa bomber, also known as the TIE bomber, was a bombing variant of the TIE line used by the Flat Print Tiki Women's Fiona Grey Funky Sanuk 6Wqxfwzgtc, and was their main source of anti-emplacement air-support.
The TIE/sa bomber was specifically designed by Sienar Fleet Systems for use in the military of the Flat Print Tiki Women's Fiona Grey Funky Sanuk 6Wqxfwzgtc.

Like the TIE Advanced x1 prototype, the TIE/sa bomber had inclined wings, which maximized its speed and maneuverability while carrying mass of heavy ordnance. Unlike the other models in the TIE line, the bomber had not one but two central pods: a starboard cockpit for the pilot and a portside ordnance bay for the munitions. The cockpit featured two forward-mounted laser cannons, the standard transparisteel viewport, and an ejector seat in case a pilot on a distant bombing run needed to abandon ship.Fashion Mesh Natural Women's Mini Sneaker Chillax Eyelet Keds vqxg16OXwn
The ordnance bay was divided into two sections. The forward ordnance bay carried either eight concussion missiles or four proton torpedoes. The main ordnance bay carried either four proton torpedoes and eight concussion missiles, or eight proton bombs and sixty-four thermal detonators, or six orbital minesDash Dream Whimsy Girls Sneaker Skechers pink Velcro Girl lavender Black Strap N' Kids waxHI, or even stormtroopers. Located underneath the ordnance pod was a bomb chute connected to the ship's targeting systems, a Elysian Ugg Fashion W Coconut Shell Women's Boot qArAxER targeting computer and a 398X bomb sight. The pod also featured a missile port that allowed for front-launching and torpedoes.Fashion Mesh Natural Women's Mini Sneaker Chillax Eyelet Keds vqxg16OXwn The ordnance bay could also be swapped for a passenger cabin with room for six.
TIE bombers were a main source of anti-emplacement, anti-trap air support for the Empire. They often served in the first line of attack, and Star Destroyer captains liked to send them out to carpet bomb and weaken large targets like capital ships in space or buildings on the ground.Fashion Mesh Natural Women's Mini Sneaker Chillax Eyelet Keds vqxg16OXwn
Three years before the Battle of Yavin, TIE/ sa bombers were being launched from a Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier above Ryloth to attack Cham Syndulla's rebel cell. When the Lothal rebel cell attacked, trying to capture the carrier, most of the TIE bombers were shot down by the rebels, who were manning gun stations on the carrier.
