The TIE ap-1, informally known as the TIE mauler, was a light Axis ground assault vehicle, created by Santhe/Sienar Technologies, used during the early years of the First War. Part of the Twin Ion Engine, or TIE, series, the TIE mauler was created to fulfill the Empire's need for a fast ground assault vehicle to use against the growing rebellion against them. The mauler was equipped with three laser cannons and an enhanced self-destruct mechanism, and, due to its need for speed, was lightly armored. Although it was designed for the First War, it saw limited combat, and the mauler was phased out in favor of the TIE crawler, which was based on the design of the mauler.
