Faction: Minmatar
Mission type: Encounter (Storyline)
Space type: Deadspace (mwd does not work)
Damage dealt: exp/kin
Extras: Target Painting(Frigates)
Web/scramble: some cruisers web
Recommended damage dealing: therm
Recommended ships: Ferox

Single Pocket

Range: 20-30km, aggro after 10 sec.

13x Frigates (Minmatar Scout) Target Painter
12x Cruiser (Minmatar Escort)
4x Fuel Depots (Objective - shoot any of them to get loot container spawned)

Shooting one fuel depot will detonate the ambassadors ship and complete the objective. Just pick up the dropped cargo container and get out of there.

6 or 7 medium smartbombs to deal with the frigates

Just for general info, the Ambassador ship is a 'Pleasure Yacht'

only 6 of the cruisers kept at 20-25km range.(i dunno which model) but the Stabber/Rupture model kept around 5-6km, frigates have orbit at 2km.

Lots of frigates as mentioned, and the close cruisers deal some amazing DPS.
I had an Apocalypse for mine. Kept both LAR-2's on all the time. Never broke tank w/ 2 kin, 1 exp, 1 th T2 Hardener

ALso, the Frigates have some really puny damage, so fitting for them is rather nonsense. (reference to smartbombs)

Maybe 1 smartbomb, but not 6 or 7.

(Looks for edit post button)

Tech 2 Hobgoblins took care of the frigates like hot knife through butter.

My alt account char got this storyline mission, and I blitzed it for him with my drake. Fit T2 kin+therm active hardeners and an AB, never got below 75%.

This account destroyed the fuel depot (and nothing else), and took no standing loss vs Minmatar. My other account that completed the mission and took the reward took a -2.29% standing loss vs Minmatar.

Hmm, looks like I did get a standing loss after a while, -2.4% for ship kill, came in a few minutes after I had finished the mission. Also see a -0.0% for aggression entry. Still, I got +5.35% with Amarr for completion on the account that claimed the reward, so net plus.

I made this mission as a storyline and didn't kill any ship, just the fuel depot to get the Cargo. Even so i got a -2,4381% Standing Loss to the Minmatars and even an -1.04% Loss to the Gallente!!
On the other side i got +5,35% Amarr and +22,4% to the Corp (Tash Murkhon)

So i suggest: Kill all the Ships, doesen't change anything

Confirming -2.4% standing loss vs. Minmatar for "Combat - Ship Kill" even if you do not directly attack any Minmatar vessel.

My faction standings were affected in major way (as expected with a level 3 combat storyline mission), my Minmatar/Gallente standings have dropped quite some, but Amarr/Caldari improved even more noticeably - overall, solid net positive for me.

I am afraid I have spoken too fast... probably checked the updated standings before the "Combat - Ship Kill" penalty for Minmatar kicked in. The mission was, after all, a net negative for me, faction standings considered - the hit to my Minmatar/Gallente standings was slightly greater than the boost to my Amarr/Caldari standings.

Lots of ships, but they don't do nearly as much damage as you would think. Took a -2.4% hit with Minmatar Republic
