Such a grace-period would be best applied on the FAW code instead of the torpedo... Perhaps a minimum 2 seconds weapon lock time per small target.

Other options to consider:

-A huge base defense rating value for destructable torpedoes due to their extremely small size - they should be very difficult to hit.
-reduced burst damage if detonated via weapon fire to balance for pvp

Regardless of what is said, the current destructable torpedo-vanishing scheme does not work. Heavy torpedo armed warheads should have a high detonation chance when hit by weapons fire.
