- use any carrier that can deploy a cobra
- engage any enemy with engage order at <1000 range
- cobra will just orbit around looking for an angle to fire and happily take potshots

- solution: can stay away, but that seems quite bad when there are ships that are up-close that can flank carriers easy especially when daggers and perditions don't have this issue. perhaps bomber wing ai can be taught to orbit outside?

of course, no one would notice this since cobras are known to be unreliable bombers (ironic) in the first place. Just something to consider.
