Mobile jump jammers. They work like cyno jammers, and they show up on the overview like cynos, and they can prevent titans or other black ops from opening jump bridges in a system. They can be taken out, but the few minutes they can keep the enemy from supplying reinforcements, turning the tide of a battle. This would not prevent cynos from being lit, it would just prevent Titans and Black Ops from connecting to cynos in other systems. Another idea since you would have to be uncloaked to light it, you could also have it not show up on the overview and have to scan down the ship to kill it.

Just an idea.

The black ops ships themselves are already expensive, and the jammer could also be equally expensive, since the jammer would most definitely get killed, it would prevent them from being abused to the point where you could down a system for hours. Once you lose two that's already 3 bil ish.

They might need a strong tank and with possible local rep bonuses to be able to stay up for about a minute rather than just insta pop when a fleet finds them.

The jammer would also not take down an active bridge, nor would they effect anchored jump bridges.

I think BO are pretty marginal as they stand and would love to see a buff for them. The buff I would like to see is covert cynos in Hisec, and I assure you I am not alone in this desire. Should Coverts be allowed in Hisec-BO would have a new and fun expanded capability.
