All this data is potentially out of date, and should be taken with a truckload of salt
Covert Ops Ships (as well as their larger cousins the "Force recon" variant of Recon Ships and the "Blockade runner" variant of Transport Ships) are unique in their ability to fit the Covert Ops Cloaking Device II, which allows them to remain cloaked while warping, while also retaining their maximum velocity while cloaked. Covert Ops are generally employed as forward scouts in fleet movements in order to monitor enemy forces with impunity.
There are two types of Covert Ops ships. One of them has bonuses to astrometrics skills, allowing them to probe down ships with ease. Stealth Bombers can mount Siege Missile Launchers and have a bonus to Torpedo velocity, flight time and damage, making them effective against large targets. Both of these ships are able to fit the Covert Ops Cloaking Device II module.
