I kept trying locations near where it said you were but you were like a ghost.

Turrets are auto firing, if your target gets close they fire, front/back is for which angle they cover. Fixed, gimballed and turrets are the 'types' of weapons you can use.
I tried to land on a friendly capital ship to make it shoot at my attacker... capital ships do not work that way.

Should I be using point defense or chaff for anti missile ?

Killed my first Anaconda.
Jumped out at some USS with a wanted Anaconda, wanted ASP and allied forces ship. Got the Anaconda to around 70% and attacked and finished off the very battered ASP. Sucker didn't see that one coming from a while away.
Started shooting at the Anaconda again and gut it to under 50%
Then the Allied forces ship blew up. Took a deep breath and started slowly backing away from the Anaconda. Keeping it to between 2.8 and 3.2 km away from me, shooting and it and doing jack shit... tried to figure out a new plan.
Then two allied Vipers jumped in and we killed it off.
Strangely enough the Anaconda was still at 3% when it blew up and when I received my bounty of 43K.
I think I watched a video of a guy doing this singleplayer mission with the Anaconda, but... I don't think the Anaconda there had beam lasers which makes a HUGE difference. Although I get the feeling that the sluggish Cobra is not the best way but the only things more manoeuvrable are the Sidewinder and the Eagle. And those won't last long against beam lasers AT ALL.
Blew up an Anaconda and still have no idea how to kill them.
I guess you need several people. Guess I won't be hunting for those in anarchy systems then...
Or use rockets. I dunno. Only have lasers. Hmm...

This time I'm sticking with my viper with 0 cargo space :)
Currently running it without fuel scoop so that I can have the docking computer.
Not that I've had any issues docking myself but this is so much more convenient and sometimes quicker too.
The Cobra however is a better ship imo
Hence the cost of almost 3X the Viper

I think I will get a hauler and set it up for mining. Mining with the Cobra just seems so wrong lol
I wanted to get a hauler to run transport missions anyways to take a bit of a brake from the combat.
Well, the Cobra is an all purpose ship.
I think the biggest advantage is the larger cargo hold although I'm a bit upset because I haven't found a single station that sells cargo racks larger than 4. That means I cannot upgrade the slots in my Cobra to get more cargo space and the default 18 still seems to be very little.
Maybe I'll bounty hunt until I get a million credits to get that Type 6 after all...

My viper is a pale comparison to Lorcin, but, holy hell, I just cleared out a high intensity combat zone BY MYSELF. "pats back" then prepares to die. Again, no humans.
I was stalking you, albeit poorly. In Sobargo. (was only 60Ly away!)
I seen you were at an outpost (valley?). Went there couldn't see you. Checked out the low conflict nearby you weren't there and so I took out a pyhton (agree, 3000cr is real low for that... those things are pretty tough) and left.
I then seen you were at Heinke(?) station. I went there. No dice, I checked out the capital ship nearby (WOW! those interdictors are insane. Must see more capital ships.) got scared and went to the station. I should have looked further the high conflict was aright next to it lol... poor stalking. I would have messaged but I was only on for a short time.
I seen 2 humans... 1 came to the station as I was leaving it, so I darted out to i.d him and say hello. He promptly turned at hyper jumped away from my viper. I only wanted to say hi.
