Completed mission with 2 x Drakes & 1 x Vexor
In 1st pocket first full t2 tanked drake aggro everything -- damage is very tiny, no insta aggro, sniping one group to another.
In 2nd pocket situation is the same. One drake takes all damage from Missile Batteries and shoots one group to another.
I'm think, thats difficulty level of this mission must be corrected from "Very Hard" to "Hard" -- one BK can do anything.
BTW, jump gates do not allow to pass anything larger Battlecruiser.

This mission appears to be bugged as I entered the first pocket and second with a Paladin.
The Station in the second pocket doesn't appear to drop loot.

Blitz : Shoot only at Privateer Commander in Pocket 2. Kill him & take Mission Objective from dropped can (helps if u have a Tractor Beam with u). Warp out. (Done it with a Drake kin/therm active & passive T2 tanked + Inv Field T2)

Completed the first room in a Harbinger with ease. Second room however proved to be more difficult. Also I was able to bring in a battleship to both rooms.

Just completed the mission with a Harbinger with mostly tech1 fit and t2 hammerheads. Had to withdraw two times in order to recharge cap / repair armor. It is one of the thougher missions but still doable even for a beginner like me :)

TIP: Last room, if you can manage to get your drones on commander before he targets you, you'll be golden with no cap drain (that sucks). All BS's will target drones but do not do damage to them. Just send them off to play until your ready to go after the commander. Get rid of the towers and sentry guns first (them thangs hurt!!)

For those who are interested in insignia for the LP store:

2x Federation Navy Fleet Colonel II
6x Federation Navy Fleet Colonel I
25x Federation Navy Fleet Major I
12x Federation Navy Fleet Captain I
5x Federation Navy Fleet Sergeant I
2x Federation Navy Fleet Sergeant II
2x Federation Navy Fleet Sergeant III

By far the best L3 Gallente insignia mission. I only got this one from Amarr agents though, never from Caldari Navy or Lai Dai.

Did this in a buffer-tanked Phantasm, no problem until the commander started neuting me in the second pocket, had to warp out to regen cap.

I confirm that the privateer station doesn't drop any loot when destroyed.
It takes lot of time to destroy the station though.

I found this pretty hard on my (not properly fitted) apoc. Still its doable if you just snipe the commander,

FACTION BALANCING: This mission incurs a -2.4% standing loss with the Gallente Federation for "Combat - Ship Kill" for destroying a Gallente Heavy Missile Battery. This *might* be avoidable, if you don't touch the heavy missile batteries.

Much above average incoming damage in both rooms for an L3, despite active resists and my being careful not to aggro more than one group. Even in my (mostly) T2-tanked Domi I had to warp out once. The loot and salvage make up for the extra time taken, though: 2.6M salvage, 17.9M insignias, and 10.1M worth of mods and misc. I had lots of drone aggro with the frigs and destroyers, too. At least I had no problem with cap.

Was able to blitz both parts just now in a Vexor. 1st part was easy, 2 took a while even after I figured out how to do it, so not fast but minimizes standings hits. On warp-in I was able to lock on to the BS at 55km and send medium drones to attack the BS, and they continue attacking regardless of sensor damps. To kill the BS without drones dying I did have to juggle some drones in and out, and do drivebys to 30km or 15km to get locks despite the sensor damps, for new attack orders and some turret dps.

Both the diplomat (Minmatar for me) and Battleship (Gallente) gave -0.02% standing hits only.

Was able to lock and send
