The cloak tempest is kind of without a combat role. Not enough mounts for the strike role and not tough enough to hang around at midrange. Medium energy is fairly unsuited for striking, but it fairly good at max range fire support. You could give it a better cloak and more armor, and have it be a slippery support frigate, or swap out one of the med mounts for 2-3 small universals. It could also use a bit more (~200?) more flux capacity.

Or, you could focus more on the drone, and make the ship like the sentinel wolf. Give it better shields and a pulse laser.

There seems to be a typo in the repair drones hull mod description.

The launch range on the Mantdae's rockets is too short, and about 1/3 of them miss cruiser sized targets

Hey hey! The 1.4.2 "Dynamic Warfare" update is out!

The biggest part of this update is that if you have Dynasector 1.4.0 installed, Arsenal Expansion weapons and fighter wings will appear on random variants in vanilla factions. Expect to be pelted by Bombardiers and Artillery Swarmers, be distracted by Mimics, have your fighters and missiles taken out by Mini-Flak Cannons, Pikes and Swallows, your shielded fighters sheared through by Mantidaes, various other flavours of getting shot at by little fighters, and then sprayed down by the Assault Pulser or torn in half by rampaging Reavers.

Changelog below.
Code:
Version 1.4.2 (Sep 29)
- Weapons and fighter wings will now show up on Dynasector variants
- Added Parapet support drone
- Brattice is now a modular fighter, Keeper can mount any kind of fighter (but should only have Brattices or Parapets 99.9% of the time it's fought in the wild)
- Thunder Rumbler is now Thunder Multirole Fighter, now has the same loadout as the pre-interceptor Thunder (Harpoon, ion cannon, swarmer, no Flux Armor)
- Keeper's sprite size properly fits it (slight vram usage reduction)
- Keeper has an increased spawn rate
- Pulse Rockets have a slower missile speed and have better handling
- Vatinae has Plasma Jets just like the Mantidae
- Small buff to the Tempest Saboteur's armor
- Two of the Torment's front missile mounts are now synergy mounts, mount arcs revised, shield has a larger radius
- Phase Dash now operates on a cooldown instead of a singular charge
- Flux Armor now has a longer cooldown to prevent spam
- Brattice engines now use the fighter version of low-tech
- Fixed a typo in the Brattice's description
- Fixed some ship systems not having categories

Mission "Surrounded" still references the Thunder Rumbler, and thus fails to load.

Are you sure? The mission doesn't reference either the Rumbler or Multirole and neither fleet uses either of them by default (player fleet gets Borers, Broadswords and 2x Talons, enemy fleet gets mining pods, Gladius, 3x Talons). Could it be that you had Rumblers on a custom variant?

Looks like that was it; pressing Reset made the issue go away.
Guess I'll file a Starsector bug report. Sorry for the confusion! Lips sealed

hey racoon, the torment is anoying

Version 1.4.3 "Tormented" update is out. Features a near-total rework of the Torment-class destroyer, swapping its role from missile platform to a stalwart tank with some interesting quirks. Also an obligatory new fighter wing. Patch notes below.

Version 1.4.3 (Oct 9-19)
- Added Firefly-class fighter drone and Flicker-class interception drones, used by Remnants (and their systems, "Flicker Escort" and "Evasive Maneuver")
- Torment rework - new sprite, replaced Flux Armor with Damper Field, has a rear flux reactor that provides increased flux stats and a second shield, but it can be destroyed by rear attacks (damaging the rest of the ship slightly, disabling the second shield, and reducing the Torment's capacity and dissipation by 30%), hybrid medium and synergy smalls are now energy only
- Brattice and Parapet no longer have Automated Ship hullmod (which caused weird AI interactions like Parapets attacking on their own, and isn't consistent with other drone fighters)
- Swallows no longer have Advanced Turret Gyros hullmod and their OP cost is now 12
- Hidden No Venting hullmod - prevents Lasher Duelist and Torment's secondary shields from venting
- Artillery Swarmer missiles have 2 seconds extra lifetime and deal 25 damage (up from 15), increased cooldown by 3 seconds
- Mini-Flak Cannons are less common on Dynasector variants
- Removed Hammerhead Seeker, Sunder Warden and Torment from pirate fleets
