Haynes Publishing, the go to source for "Owners Workshop Manuals", is at it again. Coming off last year's very successful release of "Star Wars YT-1300 Millennium Falcon Manual" they are back with an all-new owner's manual. And this time they're looking at the Empire's most recognizable ship, the TIE Fighter.
Insight Editions, who is handling the U.S. release, sent us some exclusive first looks at what we can expect to find inside this beautiful hardcover edition.

Imperial and First Order Models
Just as the Galactic Empire used great fleets of starships to expand Imperial control across the galaxy, the subsequent authoritarian government, the First Order, used even more technologically advanced ships to unify planetary systems and crush all opposition. With both regimes, the most abundant and ubiquitous ships in their respective fleets were the notoriously lethal TIE fighters.
The TIE Fighter Owners’ Workshop Manual presents a thorough history of Sienar Fleet Systems’ twin ion engine space superiority fighter, from early concepts and prototypes to the mass-produced starfighters that fought countless battles against insurgent groups. The history of TIE fighters—including bombers, boarding craft, and shuttles—is fully illustrated with numerous photographs, schematics, exploded diagrams, and computer-generated artwork by Star WarsTM vehicle experts Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas. Text is by Ryder Windham, author and co-author of more than 70 Star Wars books. This Haynes Manual is the most thorough technical guide to TIE fighters available, and is fully authorized and approved by Lucasfilm.
