They didn't design fighters to be Firepower heavy like the Defiant was designed.
During the battle to regain DS9 (Sacrifice of Angels), each of the Starfleet fighters phaser shots were doing as much damage (size of fireball) to a Cardassian ship, as one of the main phaser strips on a Galaxy class firing a equal number of shots at a similar target.

So the Starfleet fighters of that battle, at least for a couple of dozen shots, has the same hitting power as a Galaxy class.

Then they didn't give them long range or manueverability to have better survivability.
