The TIE/sk x1 experimental air superiority fighter, also known as the TIE/sk atmospheric fighter or simply the TIE striker, was a streamlined variant of the TIE line starfighters used by the Galactic Empire, most notably during the Battle of Scarif. Specialized for in-atmosphere missions, the atmospheric fighter was identifiable by its horizontal high-speed wings and large central pod.

The TIE striker featured flat, pointed wings which were specially designed for in-atmosphere combat. The starfighter was also useful for shifting supplies and personnel from orbit to the planet surface, thanks to a larger central pod. Though designed for atmosphere, it could also function in space and accompany traditional TIE fighters. Equipped with advanced high-speed wings, it was faster than the standard TIE/LN starfighter and had an extra pair of laser barrels. The attached proton bomb launcher was particularly effective against vehicle units, dealing heavy damage over a large area. The TIE striker was able to gain speed by curling down its flat wings, engaging from flight mode to attack mode.
