Ah. Spoke to a TIE engineer about that?
Yeah i did!
And by the way… There is a technical manual, u know. Cross-sections, technology etc.
This is a official Disney thing.
And it has the two-seater-TIE in it. And the named every cable, every thing like the engines and the weapon system. And well, there is no repulsorlift in it. Some other ships and vehicles have it.
If there was no official technical manual for TFA this TIE details would be not interesting to me.
But there is one and the film is not accurate to it.
