Admittedly it hard to said definitely what these are, but they easily could be fighters who fared no better than the larger ships.
Backstage sources suggest those were actually humongous anti-starship missiles, hence the reason they never bother to open fire. They were supposed to HIT the cube, not fire at it.

More to the point: we don't see any fighters engaging the Borg at the Battle of Earth years later in First Contact, despite the fact that the Akira class was supposedly designed as some kind of starfleet fighter carrier.
