The only source I can directly think of that used fighters was Jackill's work. And I only have one of his books with a single fighter design in it. Fighters didn't really figure into the FASA RPG, as shuttles were the only small craft and some of them weren't even considered warp capable. There were smaller ships that served as sector patrol vessels and so forth.
FASA's Scorpio class corvette was essentially a fighter with a 4-man crew. That's as close as they came that I recall. I personally think that there should be fightercraft equivalent to modern jet fighters, and the Scorpio is kinda like the Assault Scout from Star Frontiers Knighthawks, but examples are kinda thin. DS9 / TNG Peregrines seem to be the closest thing.
