The TL3 starfighter is a light combat starfighter manufactured by Seinfeld Fleet Systems, a legally dubious corporation which operates out of the Amorris Drive Yards. Essentially a copy of the famous TIE/LN starfighter originally manufactured by Sienar Fleet Systems, the TL3 uses cheaper, simpler components in its construction, and is notably distorted in its proportions, with a larger central pod and a generally bulkier appearance. In terms of amenities and performance, however, the TL3 is almost identical, although slightly less reliable; it is incompatible with standard TIE replacement parts.
Notably, the TL3's cockpit has larger internal dimensions than the standard TIE, making it slightly more attractive to larger species. In general, TL3s are used by pirates, low-rent mercenaries and truly desperate planetary militias.
Legal. Though they are technically starfighters, TL3s are considered only light craft under most jurisdictions, and are not restricted in most systems.
