I like the Honorverse more, but I'm realist enough to know that the giant steamroller of Star Wars plus Disney will bump just about every competitor.
So don't be surprised if ACoV is delayed until after Thrawn.
OK, is this the time to start the entirely off-topic "Medusa
vs Death Star
" war? Katana vs. TIE?
Sure, why not. Is the Empire lacking in missile defense or can turbo lasers work for that? (They seem too slow to me.) What is the range of of turbo lasers? Can we a size comparison?
I haven't any / much Star Wars fiction; I recognized Zahn's name belatedly as the author of the Soulminder series in <i>Analog</i> in the late '80s to early '90s.
Without having good numbers on TIE fighter's speed, it's hard to say if a Katana LAC could take one, but the Katana is larger, I'm pretty sure having multiple crew and TIE fighter having a crew of one.
