Well either you could make it 'random' as in -counting from the top and
right of the ship diagram roll D(number of systems on ship) and the
that comes up is the system that has to roll a system threshold check
or (my prefered option)
Each swarm is dedicated to a specific target system (ie homes in on
core signature' for example to target engines) and this is in some way 
recorded on the ship diagram by a letter in the missile picture.
When the missile swarm hits (with losses due to P/ADF systems etc) the 
remaining missiles determine how hard the threshold check is ie
       No. Missile Hits 	Damage		System destroyed on
	       1		   1			 6
	       2		   2			5,6
	       3		   3		       4,5,6
	       4		   4		      3,4,5,6
	       5		   5		     2,3,4,5,6
	       6		   6		    1,2,3,4,5,6
On an engine check with, say 4 missile hits the attacking player may
it into 2  eg a 3 missile hit followed by 1 missile hit (since engines
two to be destroyed)
