A big thing with warbirds is to avoid their ways of stopping you. 5 KM out and you'll avoid photonic shockwave, 7 km for tractor beam (or polarize hull to break free), engineering team for viral matrix. If they can't stop you, the game's half won.

I've eaten the full volley a few times - brace for impact and polarize hull with tactical team to redirect shields towards the hits. It hurts, but it's possible to survive it in a pinch.
