There is something very satisfying about knocking a bird of prey out of cloak during their prep phase.

Aye, I run a fleet patrol escort like a bird of prey (High Yield III/Beam Overload III with High Yield I/Overload II) and I rarely see anyone else doing the same. It's probably due to the difficulty in dropping torps though an enemy shield when it's not a surprise attack. However it does make an effective anti bird of prey measure after you've hit them with charged particle burst.
..You expect bop pilots to tell you how to kill us? Really? :p

Thats what the sto wiki is for..its a treasure trove of (mostly) correct and up to date information that any player can use (provided they can read/use a translation program)

CPBs a nice choice though...the aoe is quite useful (and annoying for a bop pilot) and requires some intresting bop design choices to counteract and no doubt come rommie season, I'll be launching CPBs around as well...unless I get a better, non console idea...
