Some, but there are many times when it is not the use of a HC fleet to shield-rape.
The only other time is attacking a Levi stack. Adding in CV/DE makes you lose about 10% less, but you have to spend 4 times the amount that you save on getting the CV/DE in the first place, money which could be being spent on more HCs. In the example I used, with no CV/DE, the profit ratio was 2.89 and with it was 3.18, you ended up paying 22% of your profit to increase your profit ratio by 10% (or actual profit by 2.5%), which in actual numbers was 2 mil spent for an extra 300k profit. So investing in CV/DE gets you only 1.15 times your investment as a total return (depending on tech obviously). In AE terms, that's not a particularly good investment.
