The Annihilator does not put out that much damage and is avoidable by uncerted pilots due to reload times between shots. Miss the first shot and if the ESF pilot has left your range, you don't get a second shot. Certed ESF equipment with the various counter measures can continue and do their attacks. Sorry but there's counters and ways to avoid and counter those counters. I use the Anni when there's loads of air and armor traffic and the damage it puts out is not much, again avoidable as well. I use the Crow when there's more air than anything and stock when in CQB with vehicles, rarely air. Fly behind cover, try different angles and stop flying in straight lines. Also, a person who uses lock on rockets like myself, unless I'm no going to lock on you until you're close enough to ensure a second or even third shot if need be due to the low damage out put of each rocket. Due to this, the first rocket sometimes is avoidable just by dipping behind a building or over a ridge, the rockets fly out so far, then they dart quickly to intercept aircraft. If you dip down, or out of view, the rocket will not hit unless it has a clear target. That and they don't chase that long. Wish ESF '"NEED 40 + KDR COZ ROCKETZ L33T!" would just learn to simply play the game instead of crying over stuff implemented on the battlefield. Test out your skill there instead of constantly crying on the forums about things that are -easy- to avoid (I mean it,lock ons even in numbers, use flare,stealth, or simply using terrain keeps you in the air).
