I've been converting ships for a WiH mod for SS and I've run into a little issue with the Oculus. I tried all the available ship designations and the only one that exhibits close to the correct behavior is carrier. With all the others, even freighter and courier, the Oculus charges in and get destroyed really quick. Set as a carrier it hangs back and does it's job, but it's a little ridiculous to call this 200 meter ship a carrier.
What I'm looking for is a AWACS designation that behaves like a carrier. Even better would be a ship that would stay just inside of max range of it's ECM weapons. If it's within your powers to do so, that would be really cool, but really just the AWACS is what I need.
Here's a vid of it in action. I shot it from the target's perspective so it's easier to see the Oculus's effect on the Chimera's guns, sensors, and computer.Oculus Combat Test
