Indeed, and any attempt at a counter attack, and the Stealthed Fleet would make it there faster than the AOW fleet, thanks to Interdictors being able to slow the AOW down.

Now, both of you leave me alone so I can support Sel!
Stealthed fleets are the most powerful forces in the entirety of naval warfare, they are almost impossible to defeat, Malgus used his fleet very poorly and that is how he lost, however in all other examples, stealth fleets or fighter wings are always used as the plot device that can win a war, because they are so difficult to fight back against, I really wouldn't under-estimate how damn valuable stealthed ships are, never mind stealthed Harrower-class Dreadnoughts.

To be Honest, any of you who still underestimate Traya are not worthy of participating in the Kaggath (lawlz) but here goes anyway....

Darth Traya
Spoiler

As for Darth Maul....

Spoiler


Obviously these quotes are minimalistic, I believe Traya and Maul do not need as much elaboration as my Fleets and Soldiers.

He won't have enough to put aboard all the ships.

And I think you're forgetting, the Shadow Troopers were ALL elite troops as it is, put stealth on top of that....

Speaking of Harrowers, Beni you promised me quotes on Harrowers from the SWTORE beause I typed out (pretty much) an entire chapter of TFU Novel for you...

If I am underestimating them, it's not intentional.

I'm not forgetting, but Rebel SpecForce are ALL elite troops too. They have stealth? Fine, but it's not like they can just stealth all the time without being picked up, their stealth doesn't last forever. Plus Shadow Troopers aren't meant for ship combat, they can be used for it, but SpaceOps is gonna have the advantage of knowing how to fight aboard starships. Ontop of that, SpecForce can just have sensor tech to locate the Shadows even if they are invisible.

Ok, here is why Sel's fleet is superior.
1. Trench is a naval genius, he is a very smart and capable tactician. He is also an expert on stealth ships, as he was able to find a way to destroy them while stealthed. Because of this expertise, he can probably eliminate any weaknesses the stealth fleet would have.
2. As Selenial possesses an ordinary fleet, and a stealth type fleet, it would be extremely easy to flank the enemy fleets and hit them from all sides. If the stealth fleet can't be detected, it would be capable of outmaneuvering fleets and bypassing blockades.
3. Darth Traya can use some of her foresight to find out enemy fleet movements.
