They're pretty good about maintaining debuffs on a single target, so in a pvp match where they might escape priority targeting they may do better.

They also *do* do attack runs. But they're problematic because they seem to like using evasive maneuvers at the start of the run- so they zip right past their target without really firing that much, and then turn around and- *gets hit with a torp spread and dies*

Yeah, it's kinda like that. IDK, evasive is pretty neat on them, since you can drop them at range and put them in intercept. But that's the only really reliable command for them- well that and recall. Attack and escort? If you're lucky they might deign to follow those commands.
Yet another reason why Orion Interceptors are the best pet. They're aggressive and will engage on their own but also listen to recall and new target orders. IDK what the difference is but they need to import their AI to other pets.
