These ships have been out of the mix in pvp for a while so i am pursing some changes to the current ships designs, in a similar way to how interceptors got nullification nerf, so to should the Covert ops and recon change.
Covert Ops should be able to target individuals while invisible and use ship scanners and target while cloaked. This can be used as a mean of relaying information to team mates and can be potentially useful to fleet commanders.
Recon should be able to scan down cloaked ships with probes. This will be excellent for this class help afk cloak camping.
