This tactic is called fortressing. I did up a thread detailing what it was and how to beat the YT version. The OP is describing the Lambda version.
The Lamba version doesn't have the advantage of firing arcs like the YT does but it is one of those tactics that if you are not aware of it you may put yourself into a bad position when you first encounter it.
First identify that 2 or more Lambda's are in play and that one of them is Yorr.
Check how they are placed for initial placement (they have bad maneuverability so it is difficult to get into position so initial placement is key).
If you see it being deployed, fly to the far edge and full turn towards and go as slow as you can. Target Yorr in behind and bump the OGP in front to stall you so you can put shots into Yorr continuously until he is destroyed. Then keep bumping the OGP until it takes that forward move and follow behind it.
