Actually, if you had played the Star Wars flight sims, you'd know that the Interdictor cruisers there had the ability to carry a small amount of starfighters.
It was even capable to take a few punches, facing other medium-sized capital ships, though it wasn't the best of ideas.
The problem with the Interdictor is that it isn't so much a question of strength, but a question of usefulness. There's easier methods of stopping an enemy fleet other then building an Interdictor. The problem also isn't that the Empire got new useful units, but rather that it still has useless units.
