     The TIE bomber was the Empire's prime assault bomber. While slower and less manoeverable than standard Starfighters, these bombers provided excellent "surgical strike" potential against ground and deep-space targets. These ships are best used when accompanied by other fighters, as their slower speed, non-shielded hull is open to attack. A Star Destroyer typically carried one squadron of twelve TIE bombers.
