Snipers can warp [fleet] at 70 or 100km. All groups and spawns will auto-aggro.
Set your drones to passive to keep them from taking out trigger ships that could cause swarming, and watch them for frequent aggro.
Following the trigger sequence is advisable for a sniper too, since even the Battleships move in fast.
The last Hostile killed of a ship class triggers the next spawn unless marked otherwise.
The Frigate spawn may not show up.

Blitz
Kill the initial group, ignore the Assault Frigates, and focus on the Reinforcement wave (triggered by the Frigate).
You may want to kill some or all of the Assault Cruisers and Battlecruisers to reduce incoming damage.
Kill the Disruptor Frigates and all the Battleships, done.
With the new drone changes, it becomes difficult to blitz this particular mission unless you are willing to sacrifice drones at the end (Align to object, deploy drones, let them get aggro, recall and warp, some or all will pop) or to pop all the Pointing Frigates along the way as well. Or use a MJD and snipe the triggers from afar.

Tip
Mission is flagged completed after you have killed the last Battleship.
All Battleships will fight using Bane Torpedoes. Other missile damage should be negligible.
As usual divert Drone aggro by pulling them in for a second. Remote Shield Booster is an option for Sentries.
The naming convention under the Overview for Type and Name is swapped. This results in Angel Destroyer being seen as the default name, instead of Gistior Seizer; this is refreshing as in most missions the type also shows the name.

Optional Approach
1) A Micro Jump Drive is recommended, as it's much easier to take everything out from a distance.
2) Fit a Sensor Booster and fly away from the Angel Scout Post (around which all ships spawn) to your optimal range.

Loot and Bounty
Loot + Salvage: ~11.4 mil.
Bounty: ~ 8.3 mil.
