Well you have to consider that Pilots and Observers are also warfare officers to a degree but in the air. Still have to do navigation and tactical warfare. Therefore it would be matter of converting this to a ship environment. Same as warfare officers being swapping to become aircrew. Similar job, just a different type of warfare.
