Just wondering if anyone could clarify this for me, can a loaded unit fire if it is charged?

Yes, but you'd need to interrupt. See page 27.

Bear in mind there is a disadvantage to receiving a charge unloaded, and an advantage if you are loaded and presented. So it is (in part) taken into account.

As well as using "Interrupt" with an unactivated unit, if your unit has the characteristic you could also use "Sharp Practice" to fire against a charging unit but that would leave you unloaded when in Fisticuffs.
