In game schematic description:
Light TIE Fighter
Sienar Fleet Systems TIE Space Superiority Starfighter
From the beginning of the Galactic Civil War, the Emperor has stressed that the conflict will be a war of attrition. Nowhere is that philosophy more evident than in the design and tactics of the staple starfighter of the Imperial Navy, the TIE fighter. TIE fighters are meant to overwhelm enemy forces in huge numbers and have therefore been designed for speed and affordability rather than resilience. The TIE fighter is built around twin ion engine technology and is among the fastest and most maneuverable craft in the galaxy. The TIE fighter can outrun most Alliance vehicles. And whille the TIE fighter's standard laser cannons are not vey powerful on their own, when dozens of TIE fighters attack simultaneously, they can demolosh anything in their path.

The TIE Light Duty is a slightly less powerful version of the TIE fighter. It is used to allow new pilots to get used to the unique nature of flight combat operations in space, without using up more expensive higher-end vessels. TIE Light Duty's are either high-mileage units that are pulled off the line and rebuilt or are new hulls fitted out with salvaged and refurbished parts. In addition to using lesser-rated parts in the construction of the TIE Light Duty, limiters are placed on the power generation and other systems in an effort to both keep the trainee pilot out of trouble, and prevent over-stressing the weaker equipment.
