I’m going to call this vehicle an Imperial Tie Fighter because of the red trim, bigger size, and accompanying Imperial Guard. The art comes to us through Indie Revolver and it looks like a great new addition to the Stable of Star Wars vehicles. It has a very new feel to it, while still staying true to earlier models.

Here’s what they had to say about it:
These new TIEs resemble the classic TIE Fighter, with their vertical wings and central cockpit. The foreground ship has some departures though. It’s got extra engines between the cockpit (which has an extra row of windows) and the wings (which have elongated top panels). It appears to be a much roomier vessel with a large gangplank that descends from the rear of the ship to the ground; presumably the Imperial Guards at attention in front of the ship travel inside along with its pilot.

There’s a lot of speculation that his vehicle belongs to Gwendoline Christie’s Chrometrooper character. We’ll just have to wait and see.
