Cleared in Ishtar...
Easy mission as long as you can keep your distance. Those BS actally hurt if they get within range (~45km).
(Outpost got me 999 Plagioclase, 10 Cap Booster 200 and 5 Omber Mining Crystal I.)

Completed this in a Paladin. Faction LAR, faction hards, T2 guns. Eliminate the Napat's first and snipe/set drones on the frigs before they get in range.

After that, work on the cruisers and the BSes. No BCs are on this mission, the Justicars are NPC HACs, the BSes may give you a little trouble, but a Paladin's tank should be able to handle it well.

To be clear, I did not have the option of warping to the beacon at range. I forgot to test if warping to a bookmark would work.

The mission is serious about destroying the entire Amarr fleet in the mission. I destroyed the frigates first, then battleships, then cruisers. Only once the last cruiser was destroyed did I get credit for completing the mission.

The prisoners that you need to turn in for the mission drop from the last Amarr ship destroyed, whichever that happens to be.

Amarr standing losses for destroying their ships in this mission aren't too bad. I incurred a total of about -0.098% standing loss with the Amarr Empire for "Combat - Ship Kill". This is in addition to (but very small, compared to) the "Derived Modification" loss you get for doing a Storyline Mission for the Minmatar. Faction-balancers who have the ships needed to do the mission can accept this mission without worrying. For comparison, I gained +8.4% with the Minmatar Republic for the mission and lost -3.7212% with the Amarr Empire for "Derived Modification". (Be aware that when the TRANSACTION LOG for faction standings says "Derived Modification" that the percentage change is an absolute percentage of 10.0, not the typical percentage change of (extreme you are moving towards - your current standing.)

Ran this in a Tengu with t2 fit. if you can kite the Martyrs (or kill them first) then this mission's DPS becomes much more manageable; with 76/89 EM/therm resist they were still hitting me for 222 damage per wrecking shot, which they did often. Effective range on them seems to be about 60km, any further and they stop hitting

Warp to x is not available.
However, form your own fleet, then use 'Warp squad to location within (50km)' this works nicely.
My Rattler always has plenty of tank, but for this mission I was never below 94% until after all Bs were dead and I turned around.
I used 1xInvuln,
1xEm amp(passive)
1x Therm hardener(active).
EM 78% THERM 84% (worth noting passive recharge of 58hp/s also)
Missiles and drones are +1 since tracking disruption is heavy for this mish.
For drones I used some (disposable) Ogre I's as i wasn't sure how drone aggro would work out.
There seems to be none whatsoever, I'll use sentries next time or some ogre II's.
Maintain range directly away from the fleet until Martyr and all BS are gone per previous notes.
Once you have aggro, bring in the Noctis...those tags are the only reason I can think of to run this mission at all so beat the Ninja's!!!

Tags and armour plates:15M at least.

Bring something to use against those frakken "elite" frigates. They will switch aggro and go after your drones in a heartbeat. (I had fit a medium autocannon which was nearly useless. Probably should have fit a small arty or railgun instead.)
I ended up having to sic my medium drones on those frigates and almost lost all of them as well by the time the elite frigates were dead.

I was in a faction-fit Navy Scorpion (active tank) and my shields barely dipped at all (had extra EM mods fitted for this mission).

Reward/Bonus = 3,210,000
Bounties = 140,000 isk (!!!! I guess the only thing with a bounties was the 2 Minmatar Batteries)
Loot/Salvage = 38,700,000 of which 31,000,000 was tags and 3,300,000 was salvage.

The Minmatar Outpost isn't too tough but drops crap loot. 100 pyroxeres, 10 x T1 mining crystals (5 each Crokite and Mercoxit) and 1 Metal Scrap. Not worth the ammo (or time) needed to pop it.

+2.344 gain with corp (Core Complexion this time)
+0.938 gain with Minmatar
+0.434 gain with Gallente
-0.492 loss with Amarr
-0.267 loss with Caldari
