If you use any other missile and come in from the side, you will most likely miss because the missile homing will work against you. The missiles will fail to anticipate the enemy ship's continued movement (unless, of course, they aren't moving...). That's why I like Plectrons.

Exactly, OMJ. You have to be really close up behind someone to hit with homers, because otherwise they'll either miss or the enemy will have time to dodge them (one turn used on full cornering usually make most missiles miss you).

Well, for some odd reason I kind of prefer turning in behind the enemy before firing anyway. (Yes, I am aware of the fact this usually is not of advantage)

Once again, I totally agree!

Not to mention that most homing missiles have very low dammage averages.
