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.

Kill BS until wave 2 spawns.
Kill all BS from wave 2.
