Good during the first half of War in Heaven for spiking enemy fighters in a dogfight. Used in the exact same way as the Harpoon. Even direct hits may not get you kills, it's advisable to soften up the enemy a bit before popping off one of these to finish them. Many of the better enemy pilots are capable of dodging them, though.
