Sure an MVAE could try that, but you'd see it coming and buff up. And it's always good fun to hit one with Gravity Well III just as it seperates. Multi Vector becomes One Vector. "In".
Well, that's a fair point, the BoP does still have a cloaking device. It can still ambush people, it can still be good fun.
But yes, the BOP has one less gun than the MVAE so it has less fire power. Also, the best BOFF layouts previously unique to the BoP were always Tac Com, Science LC, anything else and you're just flying a battle cloaking escort.
