The "curtain" approach may not work well. We'd most likely have to figure in ways to blind the future cognates of visual, light amplification,
radar, AND thermal/IR all simultaneously.
A trojan 'splosion in their own docking bay may create enough confusion and diversion to scoot to a new position, and immediately commence firing
from pre-computed firing solutions from that position, before they can re-compute their own firing solutions to bear on that position.
That dropship had stealth capabilities. Do you reckon it could stealth even from them? I mean, if they can see their own stealth, it wouldn't be
undefeatable stealth, would it? If they can 'unstealth' their own bird, surely some down on his luck NI agent would have already sold that
technology to the Vogons, or whomever, so paranoia being what it is, there's the possibility that they've never developed a way to even see their
own stuff under cloak.
I reckon what I'm getting at is that if they can't even see their own stuff, they can be fairly sure no one else can either. That's the final test
in US sniper training - you have to be able to sneak up on the instructors.
