TIE Delta X1 is a deleted project on LEGO CUUSOO created by Alkido on March, 2013.

This message was written by the creator of the project. Do not modify the message in any way.

Here I am again, embarked on an ambitious project that will surely be subject to controversy: inventing the future of Star Wars VII ships, based solely on assumptions! I begin with the first component of the new series with the TIE X1 Delta, an interceptor fighter!

The TIE Delta X1, is a TIE series starfighter used by the Galactic Empire. The TIE Delta is identifiable by its arrow-shaped solar collection panels, a distinct difference from the hexagonal solar arrays of its predecessor, the TIE Fighter. The Delta is one of the fastest starfighters in the galaxy at its prime, nearly rivaling the Alliance's: Y Alkido-wing interceptor (this will be the subject of my next project!)

The TIE Delta fielded on the wings six P-S5.6 twin ion engines. The new engines included an advanced ion-stream projector, thus allowing pilots access to more sophisticated combat maneuvers. Twin-port deflectors supported this feat by allowing the pilot individual manipulation of the deflectors, thus providing finer flight control. These advancements in engine technology made the TIE Delta X1 a superior platform in space combat, achieving speeds beyond all other Alliance starfighters short of the Y Alkido-wing interceptor.

The TIE Delta-interceptor's primary role is as its title suggested. Like its predecessors, the Interceptor lacked heavier armor, deflector shields, a hyperdrive, and life support systems. Interceptor pilots were forced to rely on speed, maneuverability, superior numbers, and advanced weapon systems to prevail in its primary role of space superiority. The craft's drawbacks meant that any pilot who survived more than a few missions was considered to be a "top gun" in the Imperial fleet.

Due to their speed, distinct shape, and narrow profile in comparison to the TIE/ln starfighter (which was nicknamed "eyeball"), TIE Deltas came to be referred to occasionally as "arrowhead" by enemy pilots.

Like most TIE models, the TIE Delta X1 shared nearly identical cockpits with the TIE Fighter, Except that this model is equipped with a flight deck ejection in case of a crash when opening the roof during an atmospheric overflight ... The solar collector panels are lengthened and angled to become either a shield in battle or a delta wing in order to soar in the atmosphere and even be able to land on water and navigate at high speed! This new solar array design gave the Delta X1 its unmistakable arrowhead-like appearance, while providing the pilot with increased visibility and shrinking its profile to make targeting more frustrating for enemy gunners. This wing design gave the craft a more menacing shape, continuing the Empire's reputation of ruling through fear.

The original production models come equipped with two L-s9.3 laser cannons, one installed on each wingtip. New targeting software is installed in the TIE Delta, and the SFS T-s10a targeting computer offered greater accuracy during complex flight maneuvers. Twin laser cannon hardpoints still remain on the "chin" portion of the cockpit module.

Enjoy it !
