The Broadsword class fighter was designed for exclusive use by Marine forces to support ground operations. However, due to the versatility of the fighter bomber it was decided to incorporate it into the Starfleet Table of Equipment as well. At present the Broadsword is utilised by both services, Starfleet and Marine.

The Broadsword has the capability to carry weapons pods. There are four different variations of pod available to the pilot dependent upon role assigned, namely:

1: Heavy Fighter: No pod, this is a default setting for the fighter and gives the best performance from onboard systems.

2: Assault Fighter: Two additional Type U plus micro-pulse phaser emitter's shoulder mounted forward of impulse engines, slightly reduces manoeuvrability

3: Light Bomber: Micro Tri-Cobalt launcher, under slung forward of impulse engines, 8 warheads, has a negative effect on manoeuvrability; therefore the fighter should be escorted by faster craft.

4: Light Bomber 2: 6 full sized photon/quantum torpedoes under the wings. This has an adverse effect upon the fighters manoeuvrability and should only be considered when placed in a bomber role (also see notes for 3).

The fighter has six hard points under the wings and fuselage. These can carry any standard Starfleet ordinance, but the fighter cannot carry any other pod at the same time as these hard points are used, these are used in weapon configuration 4.
