Historical (My Cannon, not acual)-
With the growing decline of the Imperial factions and "Enemy" starfighters constantly improving, One Imperial leader began to design newer fighters to try to match the curent generation of Republic fighters.
The first was the TIE Saber, a welcome addition to the Impirial Fleet and replaced the Tie/in as the main base deployable fighter.
Based on the Tie intersepter, the idea I had was that it was designed as a replasement for the aging Tie/In (the standard/common Ties) so, from the begining, it was design to be more like the X-wing than a simple Tie. The Thought was design with the idea useing "spare parts" for the Sienar Fleet Systems Tie/in and TIE Intersepter. I think it turned out well.
The only reason for the S-foil was that the wings can fold up for easy storage, alowing more room for more fighters abored ships and at bases. As I came up with more designs, this fighter became more of a planetary/system Patrol fighter than a full fleet fighter.
