All Imperial Ship Components in Star Wars: Squadrons

A full breakdown of every Component currently available for the TIE fighter, TIE bomber, TIE interceptor, and TIE reaper Galactic Empire ships.
Empire Ship Components - Star Wars Squadrons

If you put all of the opening crawls from the nine Skywalker Saga Star Wars movies together and read through them, it’d still take less time than it would to go pore over every detail of this article. Below are the descriptions and values taken from the Imperial Hangar in Star Wars: Squadrons.

The Galactic Empire only has five Component categories for three of its four ships, given that the TIE fighter, TIE bomber, and TIE interceptor don’t have shields. You’ll find a sixth category on the shield-protected TIE reaper, though, alongside every other Component detail for the Galactic Empire’s ships that has been transcribed from a pre-release version of the game.

All TIE fighter Components in Star Wars: Squadrons

Unlike the New Republic options, the Galactic Empire at least makes it a bit easier when it comes to naming their ships in a meaningful way. The TIE fighter slots into the Fighter category and has five categories of ready-to-use and unlockable Components to choose from. Just earn and spend Requisition points to add the locked ones.

Everything below is directly transcribed from a recent preview session I had with Squadrons. If you fancy a shorter Squadrons read, check out our breakdown of why the Galactic Empire has the edge over the New Republic starfighters, or you can read about every New Republic ship Component in Star Wars: Squadrons here.

The details below are very likely to be updated and changed by EA Motive for the Galactic Empire’s starfighters before Star Wars: Squadrons launches in October. You’ll be able to play it on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 (including VR), but we’d wager this will also be playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when they launch.
