PioneerSX2Tie defender is not competitive and quite weak.
#1
I've created mantis ticket http://mantis.swgprophecy.com/view.php?id=936 for this.

Tie defender is the hallmark of the Imperial Navy and the brainchild of  Admiral Thorn.   It boasted speed 40% faster than the standard tie, shields, missiles, and more firepower than small capital ships.  Some fantastic lore/detail  for the ship: https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/TIE/D_Defender/Legends

It's current state:

1.  It accelerates as slow as a POB.   -  Compared to an Xadvance,  You'd swear you're racing a geo metro vs a vette.

2.  It slides like a drunk KSE.  -  Don't even think about taking this into PVP as the ship has a very predictable turn rate.

3.  Top speed is slow.  0.93 chassis mod.   - Relatively speaking the XAdvanced is 0.90 in attack mode 0.95.   - For a tie, it is the slowest of the tie fleet.  Compared to the Tie/In which is 0.97.  Ties are always fast.  Even the bomber out runs a defender, and that's lore friendly or makes any sense.

4.  All ties had matching Yaw/pitch handing mods. 

What the wikki claims (which was over-written by legends):

Yaw Rate
200
Pitch Rate
300
Roll Rate
150

What it was on live:
Yaw Rate
400
Pitch Rate
400
Roll Rate
150  (I honestly forgot, it could be 200.)

Honestly, I think the live stats are too high. I'd recommend the following:

Yaw Rate
300
Pitch Rate
300
Roll Rate
150


Summary:   The defender is not comparing well to the Xadvance which is the overall best ship in the game. Everything the defender does, the Xadvance does better.
