To blitz this mission would be difficult and pointless.

Killing the DED Army General triggers the next Spawn.
DED ships have even resists, so use the highest bonus damage type you have.
Mission completes when the last DED Army General is destroyed.
All Cruisers fire Kinetic Heavy Missiles.
DED Army Colonels fire EM Cruise Missiles.
DED Army Generals fire EM Torpedos.
Drones appear to be targeted by Cruisers only.

You're right in both suggestions :)
It is possible to blitz this mission, but not worth it :)

Blitz: Kill trigger in every spawn (complete mission objectives asking you to "Kill their high-ranking officers")

In the last wave there's a chance for a "DED Contractor" to spawn. Had to overload my Maelstrom's tank to survive without warping out, but it was worth getting module damage :)

He drops Amarr Navy stuff mixed in with some cheap loot. I got an Amarr Navy Large EMP Smartbomb and an Amarr Navy Tachyon Beam Laser. Also drops a tag worth 2mil.

I ran this site in a dual lar 2 mega with 1 kin 1 therm 2 em active hardeners. The em damage is immense since the torps and cruises are all em. My tank held with about 3 cruisers and the 4 battleships. The battle ships like to orbit at 50-60km. Its an easy mission once you get your tank set up right.

Just got the DED Contractor spawn again (Aren't I lucky) but this time it wasn't an Apoc hull, it was a TEMPEST! I got a Rep Fleet LSB, along with other boring stuff.

What agents give this mish, if I may ask?

Only 0.0 agents most likely, Chogor. The only ones who'd have enough of an interest in eliminating CONCORD, to hire pod-pilots would be pirate agents.

I just did this for the first time - also only the second L4 mission I have ever completed in EVE \0/ - and came back and salvaged/looted everything without paying much attention to what dropped what; when I got back in station to see how much meta 4 stuff I got I found a "CONCORD Modified Cloaking Device" (buy contracts in Jita for 200mil and based on other similar mods I would say it should sell for 300mil or more - it requires Cloaking V which I think hurts its value); I do not recall that the last general was a DED Contractor but it may have been.

I can confirm 28mil worth of tags.

I believe the notes on which frigates web should refer to waves 2 and 5, not 2 and 4 (wave 4 has no frigates).

I got the mission from a Guardian Angel agent but I suspect all the L4 pirate faction agents can give it. I did it in a Cynabal but it took 2 hours including salvage and looting (my gunnery and Cruiser skills suck though) cause breaking the BS tank was time-consuming.

Update - the cloak sold overnight for 400mil \0/

Up top it says that damage dealt is Kinetic/Therm, but then it says the BS do EM missiles. Which is it?

Damage dealt is equal all types for some ships, therm kinetic for others and all torpedoes are EM
