The Alien Fighter is primarily used for intercepting Xenonauts aircraft in areas of heavy Xenonauts activity, as well as escorting other heavier craft later on in the invasion. The Fighter is eventually replaced by the Heavy Fighter as the invasion progresses.
The Fighter is a step up from the (Light) Scout vessel. Keeping roughly the same maneuverability with more firepower makes it a decent escort ship for Scouts and Corvettes. It can however be easily killed by a single Condor on a no-brain one-on-one direct attack.
