The V38 assault fighter served as the basis for the TIE Phantom.


Design-wise, it was unique among TIE Series starfighters, as the quadanium steel solar panel wings attached directly to the hull instead of via pylons. The hull/cockpit itself was non-spherical, compared to other TIEs, though it was similar to the Scimitar assault bomber.

The V38 appeared to have the wing of the TIE/IN interceptor, and its triple wing design was reminiscent of the TIE/D Defender.


The V38 was developed by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War on the planet Imdaar.[1] This type of starfighter was familiar to Admiral Gial Ackbar, who was able to identify it after viewing footage of TIE Phantoms in action.
