There are items than boost sensor strength and range, items that lower sensor strength and range, items that boost tracking and optimal, items that lower tracking and optimal, items that boost damage and rof, items that....

There should be an electronic warfare midslot item that lowers damage and rof by maybe 10-30% (I have no idea what is balanced, just a general idea). In both fleet and solo/small group pvp I don't think it would be overpowered anymore than sensor dampeners, since they would at least still be able to hit you, when while damped you are completely shut down.

I figure it would be easy to add to the game, since it is just a negative version of heatsinks/gyros/ect.

Also, they could make it the minmitar electronic warfare specialty, instead of target painting. It would fit in with the other races electronic warfare specialties (which target painting does not), and it makes sense in a roleplaying sort of way since minmitar have the worst tanks this helps them the most.

As it is now things like the bellicose, rapiers, and huginns use other races electronic warfare items instead of the one they get a bonus to.

They're called hardeners.

And there's a bonus. They affect *all* ships shooting you, not just one.

Sounds like a bargain to me.
