I'd be interested in the concept of Blackops battleships with a "REALLY AWESOME WEAPON" that WILL insta-kill and pod its target, but also insta-kill and pod itself in the process. The module itself costs 500mil on top of the 500mil of the BOPS battleship, so it's a bad trade to use it against a standard carrier (remembering that carriers are insurable and BOPS aren't) and a slightly beneficial trade to use it against a dread, but when used against Supercapitals/titans it's obviously a very, very good tradeoff
It should have a fairly short range so that they can't just be lumped in with a fleet and used to take out an enemy's supercapitals straight from the start, maybe 25km so that they actually need to sneak in with covops cloaks (which should be another capability given to the BOPS) before being able to wreck havoc.
Supercapitals and titans, as a counter to this, get a "REALLY AWESOME WEAPON SURVIVABILITY" attribute at a base of 0%. By fitting special "REALLY AWESOME WEAPON SURVIVABILITY BOOSTING MODS" (which only fit on SCs/titans) they can increase the chance they survive, but at the same time, reduce their defenses against other weapons due to having less slots for resists.
The end result is that supercaps who want a decent chance at surviving BOPS will have much reduced resists and ehp, and ones who don't fit for BOPS survival will be extremely vulnerable to BOPS.
Might make for some fun, or it might be horrendously OP.
