tackler still would be the one being murdered even if we would try to keep range where missiles would be better

Fire enough missiles at once and you won't need a tackler.

fof missiles are pretty crap , too much reload time + they attack lame closest target like drones...
the reload time kills its use ,you jammed 1 sec to send reload to server if you are realy pro 10 sec reload ,you shoot twice then you can lock the target,and then you have to reload again ... completly garbage

A cruise missile travels at 10575 m/s with good projection skills and no rigs. So yes, one volley of gunfire will land before the first missile hits (if it can reach).

Let's put a target 100km away, half the cruise missile's range. The missile will hit it approximately 9.5 seconds after launch for full damage. Meanwhile, whatever gunnery system is firing back will either not hit at all, or will have to use low-damage long range ammo. It will land 1, maybe 2 volleys before the missiles but for poor damage.

Then the missiles will hit, time after time. Assuming similar ehp, sig radius etc on both sides the missile ship will have an assured advantage at this range.

There are horses for courses.

Defenders are worthless, and FoFs not much less so.
