Your task

We have some reasonably interesting robots. Our flagship bot is s_bot. He's a good all-around bot, but could use some improvements.

This task is for a new form of attack.

Currently, s_bot approaches its target, and circles it while shooting. This can be effective, but is also rather dull and predictable. We would like to see s_bot use the following tactic as well:

Instead of approaching target directly, stand off a bit and fire a salvo of seekers, perhaps moving to a new standoff position before firing more.
