I just sent drones to kill silo from warp in (about 50km) - mission complete, no aggro. Of course you don't get the drone drops

I can second NewbieNed's comment. I've had this mission multiple times: I've approached the Drone Silo slightly to get within my drone's range (51km) and then send them to attack the Drone Silo. I didn't get aggroed and nor did my drones.

Also, sorry if I'm being picky, but the mission was called 'The Drone Infestation' for me, not simply 'Drone Infestation'

Easy blitz, while the explanation above sounds overly complicated. I did it in my Punisher: hit the afterburner, get to the silo fast, destroy it, go home. You get some aggro, but the silo blows up in 5 seconds anyway so, it's not like it's a problem tanking. 60 second mission.

The Drone silo dropped 1 crystal compound for me, and one of the drone missile battery dropped some rockets

Completed after the destroyer buff in an AC thrasher (crap skills, named as much as possible, 200mm ac x7, small missile launcher, limited 1mn ab, small shield booster 2, medium shield expander, capacitor power relay, gyrostab)

Group 1: super easy
Group 3: easy, just circled the missile launchers.
Group 2: super easy
Didn't group 4, maybe because the silo popped in 3 shots.

Very easy if you manage the aggro properly (for new/low skilled toons). Shooting at the silo will draw full pocket aggro.

I did it in a decently fit Merlin with T2 125mm Hybrids and CN Anti-matter (on a low skilled toon).
Just orbited the silo and picked off the closest drones except for the furthest group, then popped the silo and warped out.
