Group 1 (40km)1x Frigate (Federation Libertus)
3x Frigates (Federation Manica)
3x Destroyers (Federation Arcus) Trigger (when you kill all)
I have completed this mission twice now. Both times, the second spawned resulted from killing the three Federation Arcuses first, however, I believe it should be the Libertus because of its unique ID.
I completed this mission too and i think no trigger just when you kill all ships.
Wave 1 (40-50km)4x Frigate (Federation Matara) Dampening
3x Frigate (Elite Federation Manica/Libertus) Web/Scramble
1x Destroyer (Federation Pelekus)
3x Destroyers (Federation Arcus)
3x Cruiser (Federation Praktor Auxilia)
1x Battleship (Federation Covinus)
1x Battleship (Federation Praktor Praeses)
3x Battleships (Federation Praktor Hexeris, orbit at 50-55km) Killing 1 (random?) Triggers wave 2
Killing last herexis triggers wave 3
(Hexeris optimal damage range 45km)
Wave 2 (20km)2x Frigates (Elite Federation Manica) Web/Scramble
1x Cruisers (Elite Federation Mentes
3x Cruiser (Elite Federation Quadrieis)
2x Battleships (Federation Praktor Phanix, Praktor Magister)
Wave 3 (60km)3x Frigates (Elite Federation Matara/Libertus) (if Libertus) x2 - Web/Scramble
1x Cruiser (Elite Federation Praktor Arx)
3x Cruisers (Federation Praktor Bearcus/Quadrier)
2x Battleships (Federation Praktor Magister)
1x Battleship (Federation Praktor Phanix)
TipYou should be able to kill all of the webbing and scrambling Elite Federation Manicas before they reach webbing range.
You might need to focus on the Federation Mataras first because they will dampen you.
This mission was easily done in an active tanked Tengu.
See comments for mission completion trigger...
BlitzKill all Destroyers.
Kill BS until wave 2 spawns (leave Hexeris if possible).
Kill all BS from wave 2?
Example of tag loot:
6x Federation Navy Fleet Captain Insignia I
1x Federation Navy Fleet Colonel Insignia I
10 Federation Navy Fleet Colonel Insignia II
23 Federation Navy Fleet Major Insignia I
4x Federation Navy Fleet Midshipman Insignia I
8x Federation Navy Fleet Sergeant Insignia I
8x Federation Navy Fleet Sergeant Insignia II
3x Federation Navy Fleet Sergeant Insignia III
Salvage and loot minimal (received 2 armor plates, 14x tripped power circuit is only thing worth note)
