Then they better clarify that since according to the rules, "Any unit that perform an attack during the Stealth Attack Phase won't contribute its Screening or Attack values to its task force during future phases this combat round."
According to that statement, "Stealth Attack ships don't get PD at all", meaning that unless they have good EW (which doesn't make sense on a stealth ship, since in reality it would tell expose your stealth ships) or are Fast ships, they have no way of raising their Formation Level.
Unless they mean that, since they have already applied their PD during the stealth phase, the Formation Levels for the Stealth ships remain the same (unless modified by the Maneuver Phase) for the rest of the round, and the rest of the task force has to depend on it's own PD to modify itself.
If this is what is meant, then it needs to be explicitly stated that the assigned Formation Levels carry over to the rest of the round.
