Swordfish were created in the Vehicle Design Rules (VDR) of Chapter Approved 2004. They're quite expensive, but they're no better than a hammerhead, except for their increased firepower and most notably the twin-linked Railguns. As for if they're worth their points, that's yet to be seen. I am under the impression that they're not worth their points because for the price, I could almost field two hammerheads really, or at least a hammerhead plus a lot of other high damage output units. They're not foreworld and were conversions/creations created for the Vehicle Design Rules.

They're by no means legal in any way, not chapter approved at all. They're a user created vehicle and they're playable with permission only of course.

I've never seen one used, typically because most people who play with VDR vehicles can make a better vehicle for the points, or would rather simply have more hammerheads.
