All missions varies.. spawns may never be the same. All mission reports are examples of what a spawn can look like so you get an impression of how hard or easy it is.

Corelum Guardian Chief Defenders and Chief Sentinels were harder to kill...I tried Kin and Therm, and it was noticeably harder to kill them than the other NPCs in previous waves.

Keeping targets around 50k-70k, a Drake makes very easy work of this mission.
Aggregate Bounties + Mission Bonus: 6.8mill ISK

Tried the Blitz method mentioned here, did NOT work (lost my Myrmidon, but that was mostly my fault ^^). Confirmed this when completing the mission the day after (after the mission deadspace had reset), did not get Completed until everyone was dead.

Mission is EASILY done in a properly fit Myrmidon, only needed one medium T2 repper when fighting one or two spawns at a time. Dominix would be overkill for Level 3. As confirmed, no Hanger Array.

Also: Mission is marked complete after the Frigates and 1 BC of the last spawn are killed.

Confirmed, frigates in last spawn can damp. Confirmed, Odd man out BC in spawn 3 is trigger. Didn't notice when mission completed. Done in a Fleet Issue Stabber. Piece of cake if spawns are managed properly.

knocked out the destroyer first, spawned 3 croups at once - lots of ships, totalling 12BC, 4 Cruiser, 8 desty's, not fun...managed to keep tank intact through some careful management

Most of the names have changed, it's much harder to tell the triggers now.
There are more than 4 spawns.
One of the Spawn was right on top of me.
Done in a Myrmidon Drone boat with Micro Jump Drive (used twice).
MTU sure comes in handy for this one!
