I think the only reason Amarr and Gallente don't get racial BS is that both sensor dampeners and tracking disruptors will be enormously overpowered if the new BS could use them at fleet battle distance. Activation of any of these modules on a sniper BS renders it absolutely helpless (either -50% to locking range or optimal) So 1 BS could disable 6-8 enemies with 100% probability.
a sd/td bs could partially
disable 6-8 enemy snipers if it had 6-8 medslots and didnt need a single sensor booser or other medslot module as well.
note that a scorp with ecm can still have a more powerful effect on the enemy. tracking disruptors or sensor dampeners are not nearly as effective as ecm.
