Is there another name for the TIE fighter noise?

Having learned that there's a name for the Wilhelm Scream
, now I have to know if there's a name for another sound effect; most commonly known as the TIE fighter sound. Name?

I've recognized that the same sound effects get used over and over, even for things unrelated to the original noise.
Someone just clued me in to the fact that the Wilhelm Scream is often used as sort of an in-joke as well as a stock sound effect.
This made me start thinking and asking about two more sounds.
There's a jaguar growl or other big-cat noise - "rr-ROWL-rowl"- that often gets used to "sweeten" explosion sound effects; I bet that's just "panther sound #5" and I'm not that concerned about it.
But I hear and recognize the "yeeeeaaaargh!" or TIE-fighter noise much more often than I pick up on the Wilhelm scream, and now I just HAVE to know what/where it comes from and if it has a name, official or unofficial.
Any SFX folks in the hive able to help?
