Well, ingame, it works.
Locks the Sathy in place and makes it vulnerable to beam attacks from other flanks.
The only two real problems are warping out, and the bombers.
In the mission I made, there was a plot device to prevent the Sathy from warping out. And the Sathy's fighterbay is very far away from the front of the ship where the Sobek is, so the bombers can be easily intercepted if you have enough fighters.
