The TIE/HU "Hunter" multi-role starfighter was a starfighter from the TIE Series used during the Galactic Civil War by the Galactic Empire. It was developed by the Empire as a direct means of countering the Rebel Alliance's T-65 X-wings.The Hunter had a wing configuration which resembled a reverse TIE Interceptor. Similar to the X-wing, it had S-foils which meant they would be opened during combat and closed during normal flight. Unlike most other TIEs of the time, the TIE/HU came equipped with a hyperdrive and shields, making them more valued than the basic fighters the Empire utilized. It's improved ion engines ensured that it was one of the fastest fighters in the Imperial fleet, having a top speed in the range between that of a standard TIE Fighter and TIE Interceptors. This single seat craft was armed with two laser cannons, two ion cannons, and a torpedo launcher.Tam Blackstar was an Imperial TIE Hunter pilot who led Dark Blade Squadron during the Galactic Civil War. He amassed an impressive kill streak against Rebel Alliance pilots and was well known for his insane maneuvers.Creator's NoteI based my TIE Hunter on many attributes of FFG's X-wing since the Hunter was designed to be the direct counter to it. I increased the speed by 1 from the X-wing not only because it's a TIE, but also because it's historically the fastest TIE in the Imperial fleet. Since the FFG Interceptors are already 5 speed, I decided to compromise on 4. I also gave it swarm because it's an agile TIE, as well as Escort and Bomber - again because of the similarities to the X-wing.For this ace pilot, I went with a 21 point cost because of his special ability. I also gave him 3 blue and 1 black squadron attack because of his historically impressive kill streak against Rebel pilots.You may buy 3D printed TIE Hunters here! - https://www.shapeways.com/product/XMSSCLMN6/armada-12x-tie-hunter?optionId=57226077
