I think if this was a dedicated ground attack, the range wouldnt matter so much.  It's a bit slow and short ranged for a heavy interceptor as we have the heavy strike fighter to compare to.  For the actual game, seeing as fighters kinda mash up against each other in the middle map, you will be fine.  Using the better radar map rules the short range and speed will again see faster/longer ranged planes score kills versus the sandblaster.

I think you'd be better off with RL-10s, personally.
