I think we need some clarifications...

We have always regarded the Deathstrike missile as a cruise missile
much like modern day tomahawks.

So I've always regarded it as a small flyer. We use our own rules for
flyers (They are placed on the tabletop as any other units and has some
manuverability restrictions. They must move between half and full
movement, making no more than to turns each round with at least 10 cm
between the turns and with a maximum turn of 90 degrees (no singel turn
above 45 degrees)) These are the rules by wich the deatstrikes move.

So if I'm able to backstab a titan, using the above manuverability
rules with the limited movement og the deathstrikemissiles. I would
very well say that my opponent deserved a warpmissile in the back.
Furthermore it does not say in the rules for the deathstrike missile
that the launch vehicle has to have LOS to the target. It says so on
the description for the Titan, but then again that missile is of a
different nature (no movementrestrictions for instance) I regard these
missiles as different weapons but with the same warhead.
