Is using the intercept mission on the Sabre class ships, and instead of pop or trg, you use the ship ID of a target vessel. A Sabre set to intercept ship1 and has a FC set to 001, the Sabre will then explode at the end of movement. If Ship1 is NOT at the same x,y at the end of movement the Sabre doesn't explode.
This means the sabre goes to combat with a knowing FC?
Why do you need to reconstruct the Saber? You can reconstruct painmaker for it instead. Its easy to turn painmaker into saber (or nefarious) at the moment it explode.(in Auxbc Phase).
But i like the idea. How about to use the fc=lfm : if the glory ship ends movement with any non-cloacked enemy ship (kill or PE except alliance) then it explode?
Not really a known FC at all, and it wouldn't be a big deal if the enemy guessed which ship the Sabre was trying to intercept. Sabre's and D19's are already setup to handle cloakers pretty easily and effectively. Biggest issue is sending a Popper to hit a ship that ends up NOT being at the same x,y at the end of movement and the Klingon ends up waisting a ship in the process. By using the Intercept mission and a FC of the ship that the Klingon wants to hit the Sabre with will ensure that the Sabre only Explodes if that target ship is at the x,y. No Klingon Capt would explode his ship in the ulitmate act of glory and not take any enemies with him.
Granted the Sabre couild end up at the end of movement and have to fight, and "if" the enemy figured out which ship the Klingon was going to intercept, and the enemy wanted to match that FC to avoid combat on ships that he didn't want to fight, not the end of the world. If the Sabre ended up over a planet with a SB, still not an issue as Surrender happens the beginning of the next turn, so the any decent Klingon Capt will change his FC and move off, or just explode were he is at, and not have to worry about being captured.
Thats why the Sabre will look like this.
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference.
The US Marines don't have that problem.
