This would be VERY hard to balance. What would be the mass/cost/value of
linking a CH and a DD? What would be the mass/cost/value of linking 2
Komorov SDNs?

I would think that this would have to be on BOTH ships and have a
equal to about 1/2 the mass/cost of the weapons it could link to. But
makes it hard to design.

Perhaps it should be similar to how the FTL Tug is done. Command Bridge
10% of the mass of the ships it can link to. I.e. a Command Bridge that
could link 100 mass of ships would mass 10 and cost 40. Each ship that
can control would have to have a Command Link FCS (CFCS) that is mass 1
4. A linked ship uses a single FCS of the Command Ship's FCS instead of
own while linked (limits number of targets). CFCS cannot be used as a

All the above is off-the-top-of-my-head, is not balanced, and probably
contains many flaws.
