At the height of the Galactic Empire, the Imperial Navy had countless Academy graduates andclones at its disposal. During the time of the Imperial Remnant and the reign of a rebornEmperor Palpatine, the Empire was forced to be conservative with the lives of the TIE pilots due to their decreasing numbers, and unmanned TIE/D automated starfighters were used as support craft for living pilots.
