There is some drone agression in this mission, but as there is some heavy dampening, it's advisable to leave your drones out so they can start killing the dampening ships.
Fitting at least one Sensor Booster module is very helpful as well, do not forget to bring scripts. Or for Missile Folks just bring a good supply of F.O.F they work well in this situation.

When the Core Lord Admiral is killed, the mission is complete. Shooting the triggers first to blitz the mission is possible, but not recommended due to very high incoming dps.

No Loot from Structures.

Loot and Bounty
Loot + Salvage: ~16.5 mil (
Bounty: ~18 - 22.5 mil (full clear)

Additional Info
There is rarely another spawn along with the final one. Even more rarely this single ship spawn can be a Shadow Serpentis BS, with the usual chance for faction items and higher bounty.
