Well thats the standard with any tenders/carriers...

ideally they should hang out way way way in back of the battle line and 
just observe...

Trying not to power game too much...?

Its a system. It also provides not just transport from system to 
system, but also repair and rearmamemnt facilites. Thats what a 
tender does. Thats the way a small attack craft system would operate. 
It forms the basis for a LPD as well. Reduce the size of the bay to a 
capacity 25 bay. Add space for troops quarters and add an ortillery
The fighters make a nice escort/combat addition to the force. The bay 
size allows for capacity of several small assault craft or one really
one (one has to be able to get the really huge tanks down...).
