Dogfighting - Get behind your enemy and stay with them (or inside their turn radius) as they turn. This is most effective against larger, slower ships or if you have a fast and maneuverable ship.
Jousting - Fly towards your enemy and past them while firing. Continue past the enemy (don't leave weapons range), then slow down and turn back for another pass.
Circling - Fly in a wide circle around your targets and fire beam weapons to wear down their shields, then turn in to finish them off with torpedos
