    The TIE/gt Fighter is a retrofitted TIE Fighter used for carrying ordinance, but is being replaced by the newer TIE Bomber. This early version of the TIE Bomber still sees widespread service throughout the Imperial Forces, especially in lower-priority deployments. It is usually employed as a ground-support craft. However like the TIE Bomber, compared to other TIE models, this fighter features an elongated and reinforced hull. Rebel slang refers to these craft as "egglayers".

    Unlike the TIE Bomber, precise targeting for the TIE/gt is achieved through the use of the TIE/fc, but most larger targets such as buildings and capital ships can be destroyed without such assistance. Although concussion missiles are its usual payload, its missile launcher can handle other specially packed payloads. Payloads such as the plastic leaflets are only dropped in unusual cases. The Imperial Navy is transferring the TIE/gt to outlying posts and to the Imperial Army as quickly as the datawork can be filed, however Imperial Army resistance and its legitimate lack of demand has considerably slowed down the process.
