The average damage per salvo which hits will be pretty low, but *all*
these fighter-salvoes will hit (thanks to the 12mu secondary move), and
- if they attack like fighters - *all six* fighter-missiles in the
salvo will attack. Even better, you can't use small ships as decoys
against them (again thanks to the 12mu secondary move). This more than
compensates for their lower average damage per individual
