There is a module that you can get from the melnorme that gives your weapons a homing ability. If you have your first two weapon slot modules filled and the homing module you'll have a pretty ridiculous damage output (I assume this is what he was asking in regards to the 'missile' weapon). It won't work on the ilwrath though.
No, you need to be able to kill them in one hit from a distance with proper aim. Which also means that if they warp in close, you're out of luck. (When fighting them with the flagship, that is – if you use a Spathi or Thraddash, you could probably get out of the way.)

i always found vux hunting to be a very fruitful way to accumulate rus (if you can't be bothered scouring the galaxy for treasure planets)

i don't know how to put in those nifty spoiler buttons so i'm not even going to attempt to give you hints on how to find them or where

suffice to say that they're VERY aggressive towards humans and, with the right ship, easy pickins so fighting them is both profitable and somewhat satisfying

Why does everybody insist that Ilwrath are so tough? Earthling Cruisers shoot them down if you angle them right. Okay, it's a tough battle but the easiest way to own them is with the Supox.

Supox! Really! Nobody seems to use them. It's really easy.

1. Dive toward the Avenger.
2. Use the Blade's backward drive and shift side-to-side.
3. Hit those stupid spiders with the glob gun while moving, so that you cover a wide area while facing the same direction, and those fool bugs keep chasing you.

The glob gun has a green splash, so it's actually easy to see where they are so that you can pick 'em off.
It's easier with the Supox because you don't need to turn around and there's a much smaller chance of error with the nifty Blade Drive.

As for RUs... Get the self-destruct from the Sylandro, but DON'T GO BACK.

The Probes never decrease and you can FEED off their RU's!

I've been spending my time wishing for a forum like this and it turned out it was here all along.

Not going back doesn't stop the gradual deterioration of the presence of Slylandro Probes. It starts when you get the self-destruct code.

JSYK, Avenger is well accepted to be a counter to Earthling Cruiser, and to be very weak against most other ships.

I actually thought that Mahar was right, based on the dialog. But I checked the code, and I can confirm that jaychant was right: as soon as you get the destruct code, the Slylandro Probe numbers will begin to decrease.

I could have confirmed it from experience, too; I remember the probes decreasing after I got the destruct code.

Ahh curses. Why haven't they disappeared? I still can't go four AUs without one of 'em popping in front of me. Maybe because I took to long.

Who woulda guessed that the GAS GIANT was the one I was supposed to look in?
I thought the Zoq-Fot-Pik had gone nuts.
