G'day again,

Don't you think paying a heap for a weapon tha's going to miss most of
time is a bit unbalancing too? Beam guys point and see if they hit; SM
guys, have to guess where you're going to be (and if you're aiming for
BB and you think he's going to MD forward so you put it down at current
velocity +3 and he actually about faces and MDs back the other way then
you're going to be lucky to get the frigates that had been out in front
alone the actual target you were after), then survive PDS, then see how
many make it past the decoys, then, IF any actually go in, see how much
damage they cause (OK my natural talent for 1s doesn't help any of this)
frankly if my tech-heads couldn't invent a missile that did the best it
could to help me get it on a target in the first place I'd space 'em ;)
