75161 TIE Striker is a Star Wars set released in 2017 under the Microfighters and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story subthemes.

Background

In large part due to the decommissioning of many clone troopers from the ranks of the Imperial Military, fresh cadets were often utilized for piloting the TIE striker, of which at least one squadron did a fly-by near the then-under construction Death Star.

The TIE striker served the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War, a galaxy-wide conflict in which the Alliance to Restore the Republic waged a rebellion against the Empire to restore democratic rule to the galaxy. The starfighter was utilized for in-atmosphere engagements and the defense of important Imperial bases. In particular, because of the secrecy behind the Imperial security complex on the jungle planet Scarif requiring a vigilant and swift defense force, the TIE pilots stationed there utilized the strikers.

Sometime after the smuggler Han Solo took ownership of his starship Millennium Falcon, a TIE Striker could be found at Nodo's shipyard.

The TIE strikers notably defended Scarif during a Rebel attack that was part of the Rebel mission to steal the plans to the Death Star. During the battle, the TIE strikers entered dogfights with various Rebel aligned craft, with some also escorting a TIE/rp Reaper attack lander to deliver a squad of Imperial Death Troopers, the personal guards for Director Krennic, to deal with Rogue One.

The TIE striker was still in the service of the Galactic Empire in 5 ABY, with several TIE strikers being present at the Rothana Imperial Shipyards around the time of the Battle of Jakku. During the battle itself, TIE strikers were utilized on Jakku's surface to combat the New Republic.
