No I don't think they need to be limithed further.

The limited range of the missile already makes them quite unmanouverable.
And the fact that they may be shot down, makes it quite unsafe to go
cruising around the tabletop for too long a time. The best tactic would be
to go straight ahead and deliver the goods as fast as possible.

As I said yesterday our little gaming group has been working on our own
flyer rules. We use the flyers pretty much like any other unit. We also
allow all units with weapons of ranges equalt to or lesser than 75cm to
shoot at flyers at a -2 penalty.

I think that the AA guns are the only units with good enogh tracking and
targeting systems to shoot down a small missile like the deathstrike. And
that even they have to do it at a -2 penalty. Otherwise I do belive that I
have delivered my last deathstrike.
