TIE Landing Craft

The TIE/lc was a limited production variant of the TIE Bomber that was
designed to transport a squad of troopers from ship-to-surface. It is
essentially no more than a stock TIE Bomber with an extremely cramped
passenger pod attached to the underside with retractable landing struts on
the bottom. The standard hull armor was slighty reduced making the ship a
bit lighter to counteract the added weight of the passenger pod.

The passenger pod is extremely cramped and has no extra room for anything
other than the eight soldiers and whatever they can carry. The ordnance pod
was replaced by an extra cargo pod that can store supplies, weapons, and
whatever else the troopers may need upon landing. In the event of an
emergency, the underside passenger pod may be detached by detonating a
series of small explosives. This is usually done after the ship has taken a
fatal hit (assuming that the pilot is still alive).

The TIE/lc was deployed to a handful of commands in small numbers, usually
one on board a Star Destroyer that usually replaced a light transport or the
standard TIE/sh.
