It seems to work.

With MES2 and the support skills fully invested in, I've been able to get within 3.5-4km of someone before being detected. The disparity is either due to the targets investment in sensor skills and consoles, or their reaction time.

Thank you for the replies. If the Tac. Escort refit doesn't work out i may go back to my advanced and try MES.

MES3 is AMAZING in PVP. As a science ship that runs Aux at 125 all the time, I am almost never am detected until I want to be :-D

WHhat I wonder more about is - how well does MES 1 or 2 work in PvP? I don#t realy need "full cloak", but I'd like some extra defense against sneak attacks, and a safer path back to the battlefield.

Well like I said, I could get within 4km of just about everybody. So, in theory, an escort could use that to set up a shot within cannon effective range.

EDIT: That's with MES2. I have yet to test MES1

What Aux levels are you running to achieve that?

Better yet, what is the +Stealth value that MES is giving you?

I have a bit of a noobie question,

The other day I was going to happily blow up this nice little science ship, which clearly had a chewy inside, and a soft outside, when suddenly the damn thing disappeared as if cloaked. Was I hit with Jam sensors, or was that EMS or something else equally annoying?

Since then I went ahead and re-got myself science team 1 to stop the nonsense but I haven't been hit with the thing again..
