The tracking system is all good and working very fine. If it wasn't because theres one factor that is NOT taken into account. The fact that ships turn around themself means tracking their target becomes harder or easier.

By taking this into account would mean that ships orbitting another ship will have no problem at all tracking their target, but the ship in center of the orbit would have a hard time tracking the orbiting ship.

This is because the transversel volocity is reduced to "0" by the fact that the orbiting ships has turned 360 degrees every time it has orbitet one time. The gun is pointing in the same direction all the time.

This isnt anything new, people spotted this "flaw" years ago, meaning it's either rather difficult to fix, or there's a very good reason for not fixing it yet.
