Slow turning cruiser .... Escort behind
1. tractor beam
2. reverse engines
3. Emergence power to Engines 1 + Evasive action
4a. NUKE (Beam Overload / CRF --> HYT)
If hull below 50%
brace for impact + aux to damp + throttle to front + RAMMING SPEED
In both cases, dead escort.
No dual cannons in aft would help you, if you refuse to actually manoeuvre you ship.
Yes, I sometimes do. When someone is tailing me in PvP, I come to a dead stop, and let them overrun me, that way I end up on their tail. In PvE, that is a less useful tactic. With PvE, I tend to broad side when tailed, and sprial outward to put space between me and the target. As for the Evasive and Emergency to Engines, with an escort, I go from 0.2KM to 10.5+ KM in PvE so quickly that the power is wasted.
