Exactly. That's why it's funny to see Federation fools complain about them. They don't know how to counter someone using a battlecloak the way it's supposed to be used. I've done hit-and-run ambushes against ships loitering around in a fedball (4 ships or more, especially in a place like Ker'rat) and escaped with only minor hits to the shields. I decloak-attack, buzz around a bit, and escape within 15 seconds of initially decloaking. It takes a little bit of brains and doing something other than spamming spacebar to stop that.
