A beefier version of the TIE bomber, the TIE punisher built upon that starfighter’s success by adding shielding, a second bomb chute, and three additional ordnance pods, each equipped with a twin ion engine.
It arrives to X-Wing as a devastating Imperial starship in the TIE Punisher Expansion Pack. The large bomber is accompanied by four ship cards. It also includes a punishing array of nine explosive upgrades, with which you can obliterate your enemies. In addition to boasting a larger payload than TIE bombers, the Punisher invites Imperial players to perfect their bombing skills; take advantage of both its innate boost action and its ability to equip a system upgrade like Advanced Sensors. With Advanced Sensors, the TIE punisher can boost into position to drop a bomb right in front of an enemy fighter. It can then immediately perform its maneuver to fly away.
