The bops do ~not~ need to be buffed to fill a hybrid role, they are perfect for what they are, also, what they are is a raider, not an escort. and I'm sorry, but if can't deal with a single fed escort in your bop, then you lack the ability, mindset, skills, and loadout to effectively use a bop. Small hint, you don't come at any ship head on in a bop, you use cloak to get behind them, or to your favoured attack vector, same with the raptor, and battle cruiser.

As for those ships in the links, sure, they would be interesting ships to use, but they would either be put in at lower tiers, or need a lot of work to get them to t5 standards.
No need to lecture me on using the BoP, I've been blowing the crap out of enemies in Ker'rat with just that tactic for the past 2 weeks. . .escorts, cruisers, and science ships. I've also been mutilated by competent escort pilots that can out-tank and out-DPS me, or I've been flattened by fed balls before I can scurry on out of the area.
