Background: The TIE/es assault shuttle, or TIE Echelon, was a transport of the TIE line used by the First Order. It possessed four heavy laser cannons as well as a dual light laser cannon turret, was capable of delivering 12 crew members plus additional cargo, had two clusters composed of three ion engines each (one for each side), as well as advanced sensors capable of monitoring and scanning enemy communications to allow them to avoid hostile encounters.

A TIE echelon was also used to deliver First Order stormtroopers of the 709th Legion to Batuu in order to clear out the Resistance presence. A local named Remex Io witnessed its arrival and attempted to inform his fellow comrades in the Kendoh Gang about their arrival, although he couldn’t do so as they needed to negotiate with Dok-Ondar at his shop to form an alliance with him.

The same echelon later returned to the planet with the sergeant onboard as well as a 125-Z treadspeeder bike after a squad within the 709th fought with two people suspected to be Resistance agents. One TIE Echelon was present in Black Spire Outpost on Batuu, where it marked the entrance to First Order Cargo. The TIE Echelon in question was responsible for bringing over Kylo Ren to Batuu in order to track down Rey.
