For Escorts using cannons there is. I forget the math but you dps drops dramatically at ranges greater than 5km. So the best thing to do is make strafing runs. Charge right at your target, open fire at 5km and then bank hard and come around again.

There is also a sweet spot on the engine slider for maneuverability. In my defiant it's just under 50%. So what I do is head at a target at full throttle and then drop down to 50% before I bank.
