Dodge man, dodge.  That two point turn at the midpoint equates to
a 1 poing turn at the beginning.  Don't let 10 missiles get you
in their cone.	If you can be hit with 10 MT missiles think what
would happen if someone were using salvos on you.  If you can
force your opponent to throw away missiles of whatever type you
have the advantage after they are gone as you should have a bigger
weapons loadout.
