Physically plausible explanation for missile based space combat?

Remember that in the real asteroid belt the rocks are space widely apart. I was told that on average you can't see one from the other with a Mk. 1, Mod. 0 eyeball.

i know but if the target is something ön or around an asteroid they still offer cover.

Yep, but in general you couldn't count on them for cover even inside the Belt.

That could be a "teaching moment" for the mids.

"Okay, you lot, calculate the most effective coverage of Ceres with our missiles. Explain your choice." Something along those lines.
