The Longsword Mk1 was used for a period of time by the Republic, however this loadout was very rare; it was adapted, sacrificing its anti-fighter missiles for a single nuclear warhead.

In being equipped with a nuclear warhead it lost a significant amount of anti-fighter capability, and was no longer deployed in an anti-fighter role, however retained its cannons for dogfighting if need be. The weight of the nuclear weapon is not offset by the loss of AF missiles, however, and the manoeuvrability and acceleration of the craft is greatly reduced.

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.
