Like I said rumors and a bad one at that.
Frankly STO has become just a money grab in my eyes and while Cryptic is a bussiness and needs to make a profit, at what point do they stop selling everything they think they can get a bit of money for and adhere to some of the ideology of the Star trek universe?
If the feds where to have widespread cloaking we would have seen that in TV shows and the movies becuase in a real life enviroment cloaking is a great tactical advantage, but in the fictional world of Star trek there is a reason they did not go "RL" with cloaking. To do so tarnishes the Hero image.
If the feds are looking to get a Raider vessel then why? Why do they need a vessel designed to harrass enemies, spy, to disrupt supply lines and attack strictly for conquest?
The feds already have a cloaking defiant, they have no need for a BoP-like escort to fill the role that was never intended for the federation.
Peaceful exploration and combat only when all other routes fail, the hero's role, the good guy's role, the noblier path that they once adhered too but willingly seem to have sold out.
