If I have the Cloaking Geniuses advantage and cloaked scouts with point defense, do they get an additional +1 to attack in the first round when firing on fighters?

It would seem that the answer is yes, but that makes the advantage even more powerful than it already is, so I figured I'd see what others think.

I agree with your interpretation. SCs would be +1 from Cloak and +1 additional versus FTRs due to the PD...

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Actually I should clarify the PD doesn't strictly give you a bonus, or even a +1 bonus actually, your ship has an increased base attack based on the PD level versus fighters. But yes, it's both things. The cloaking would only be a bonus during the first round, just like with Raiders.

And don't forget if your SC has AS+1 you would also add that to it's attack vs FTRs. So an SC with PD1, AS1, cloaked would be attacking at A9 for the first round and A8 thereafter. It can get even crazier when you add in XP bonus and / or Fleet bonus. PD is nasty....whistle

hat was exactly the situation I encountered it in (luckily as the one with Cloaking Geniuses)
I only get A8 for the first round though: 6 from PD1, 1 from attack tech, and 1 from cloaking.
