Same Here. I punish direct enemies by charging them and taking down front shields. Then dropping mines from rear at about 1 - 2 km and popping a Hvy Torp. Then I fly under, evasive and attack from their 6 (if they are still alive).
Why mines? Added damage yes, but mainly it spams the screen with data so it is hard for the person (or the defensive battery) to target the torp in case the close distance alone isn't enough).
It works well for me.
