A form of attacking (preferred by the Clans) in which attacking BattleMech runs in circle around the target, torso twisted towards the center of the circle, and fires away.
This form of attacking is extremely useful and effective if the target is slower than attacker. However, don't try this if the radius is too long or the target can aim better...
(In multiplayer Mechwarrior games, the youngsters seem to call this stuff "circlestrafing"... ignorants... There's more in the life than just Quake, damn it...)
