100% Agreed

The Advanced Bird of Prey are pure win!

You just need to simplify the battle for the ABOP.

Keep the ABOP on recall after you launch them and once you've selected your target hit it with Target Subsystems Shields 3 then swith your ABOP to attack mode and watch them pop the target in a few seconds.

The ABOP also get the damage boost from attacking out of cloak

The trick is to not let the Birds wander, keep them on recall whenever they are not needed and they will stay in formation behind the Carrier.
