The Star light fighter series (including the starflier and startracker) are notable exceptions in this category. The reason is that both of them mounts only 3 weapons. Also, a cruise disruptor mount is missing.
Most light fighters mounts 4 guns of various classes, along with a fighter shield and a cruise disruptor. Depending on the build, some fighters are capable of carrying a turret as well.
