The mystery tie has some extra cog looking things at the panel base. Maybe its an ugly har har

Best guess so far is the TIE/gt

Wait, I was thinking of the turret, but there's no cogs on this one.

I'm amazed that NO ONE seems surprised by these white panel TIE fighters.

 

Seems a bit counter-intuitive to have white solar panels, but I'm no scientist...

 

but then there's the blood stripes and logos people paint on their miniatures, never thought of it as obstructive before.

Nothing official really states that they're solar panels, though. That's just a widely-accepted idea

And the fact that it is science fiction and the craft act like atmospheric fighters in no gravity. I doubt that really is an issue.

Not arguing, we all know SW is more fantasy than sci-fi...but still...light-shaded solar panels?

 

It is very counter-intuitive to everything I know about light waves, but then again chrome tinted windows look like mirrors and you wouldn't expect to see through them from the other side. If they are solar panels they can make up something that explains how they can be white and still work as solar panels.
