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

The standard interceptor was an effective AF platform, capable of good manoeuvrability, acceleration and speed, as well as highly effective AF missiles. The main cannons were extremely effective against small enemy craft, but the default load-out lacked anything which could significantly damage capital ships.

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.
