Yehat vs Vux is also incredibly annoying in the hands of good players. I've spent many long battles with this matchup on the genesis.

Basically, the Intruder must evasively attempt to limpet in an "s" pattern, and the Terminator is just slow enough not to be able to cut the oblique angle of a properly flown Vux without getting hit by said limpet, but the Terminator is fast enough to avoid getting hit if it doesn't try and close the distance.

That one limpet hit vs getting to close range unhindered as the Yehat is what decides the outcome of the battle.... and it can take a ridiculous amount of time when the Intruder and Terminator both fly evasively.

An asteroid hit on the Vux (that is meaningful) is also rare, as the "S" pattern usually means you are hit into the direction you are turning into anyways, and thus are still protected by outbound limpets already on their way to the Terminator.
