The real problem would be continuously firing torpedoes and offensive abilities so that you never really re-cloak. Popping off one torpedo at a time is basically worthless unless you catch somebody with their shields down, so you pretty much need to keep spamming attacks. In PvP that would be plenty of time for someone to target you with an ability that would take down your cloak completely.

So, what's the best tactic to use when you've been forcibly de-cloaked?
Fire your volley and deselect your target right afterwards. Retarget when your torpedoes are off cooldown and fire again.

Or hit them with Jam Sensors. While I understand Jam Sensors is frowned upon in a team PVP game, this ship is not designed to be a defensive support ship. Any abilities you use to help your team will probably decloak you.
