The Longsword Mk1 was used for a period of time by the Republic, and in this loadout was used as an Fighter/Bomber, though it had many loadout options which allowed it to perform many different roles.

This is one of the many alternative roles it takes, outfitted with heavier anti-capital ship missiles to give it dual-capability as an assault fighter. In being outfitted in such away, it loses some speed and manoeuvrability but gains alot of firepower.

Although it doesn't have the dedicated firepower of a true bomber, it can take on the role of both interceptors and bombers to an extent in battle.

C709 General Attributes:

Unlike many new experimental fighters it is cheap to produce en masse and relatively effective, providing an affordable mainstay for the Republic's fleets. It is often carried for quick deployment from many types of Republic carriers, and is frequently carried due to its load-out flexibility, being easily adapted for a range of roles.

It is capable of atmospheric flight and combat as well as stellar travel, and can perform in atmospheric dogfights and ground support roles.
