As our friends over at Yakface point out, the official cover for Pablo Hidalgo’s The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary reveals a photo and name of a brand new TIE vehicle from the film – the TIE Dagger. It appears to have a double wing construction design to possibly result in more speed/maneuverability compared to a standard TIE fighter. Could this new fighter class be flown by the red-clad Sith Troopers in Episode IX as suggested by Yakface? Or will it be piloted by someone else entirely?
