The 501st Legion, also known as the 501st Battalion during the Clone Wars and later known as "Vader's Fist" and the Five Hundred and First, was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a stormtrooper unit. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the clones helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.

The best Tie Fighter design in the Galaxy, the pinnacle of Imperial engineering. However, Sabine called it an interceptor its actually a Interceptor/Light Bomber, and that's what made it so different from other ties it was the first Tie Craft with versatility built in mind, besides the obvious shield generator and I believe later on hyperdrives. All in all the episode was actually really good I look forward to the next one.

The only Tie actually worth building in Empire at War.
