The incoming damage was never a problem (fitted for Gurista damage profile with 3 kin 1 therm hardener), but the Pith Usurpers tend to tank quite a lot, so make sure you can deal more than 300-350 DPS in this one.

Pith Usurper Ship info from eveinfo.com:

DPS: [EM Damage] 0 [Explosive Damage] 0 [Kinetic Damage] 97 [Thermal Damage] 26

Shield: 6750
[Shield EM Resistance] 79% [Shield Explosive Resistance] 69% [Shield Kinetic Resistance] 49% [Shield Thermal Resistance] 60%
Full Shield Recharge: 9 min
Boost Chance: 74% Amount: 355 Duration: 5 s

Armor: 4250
[Armor EM Resistance] 79% [Armor Explosive Resistance] 69% [Armor Kinetic Resistance] 49% [Armor Thermal Resistance] 60%

the BS keep at 32km - so either longrange them or have a AB ready to reach them - they do 117m/s stable
if you kill the sentries fast enough - don't bother fitting anything besides of KIN/TERM

only about 800K Veld, 6 ~90K roids the rest were all 2-15K so not worth the time as they're too spread out

got this again and was bored so completed in a shield tanked rupture... had to take out the batteries and drones quickly but i was putting out ~250DPS including drones and tanking ~240 plus as a cruiser hull a lot of missile DPS was negated by speed. the Usurpers were tough but eventually went down

My little T1 Drake was able to finish this mission. My DPS is only about 250. It took about 500 scourge to finish the mission.

7+ years later and everything is still exactly the same.
2 BSs (Pith Usurpers)
2 Spider Drones (orbiting at just under 7,600 meters)
3 Guristas Cruise Missile Batteries.

Warp in, sic drones on the Spider drones (just to make it quicker to get to the BSs). Kill both BSs, loot the can with the Special Delivery item and warp out (don't forget your drones which have probably wandered off to attack the cruise missile batteries).
Going to try it in a Caracal (HAM ?) next time, or maybe a T3 dessie.
