Mission looks easy at first. But the frigates are pain in the ass. Even with ten HamII and two webs they last very long. A third ship with small or med turrets is recommended (BC). Mission was flagged complete after all cruiser / BS spawns were killed ... 6-7 frigs left.

Ok, this was my first level 5, and as expected it was quite involved. I'm not really sure were to start so I guess I'll just start listing some notes:

-mission completed in: t2 railed/tanked megathron (drones: 5x hobs and 3xogre/2xhammer) and an alt in a t2 raven (6x t2 cruise, 2x large RRs, lots of cap recharging, painters, and 75m3 worth of t2 armor rep drones).
-this is an estimate based on how long it took to destroy them; the two neut towers have about 100k hp...I suspect all L5 neut towers are similar.
-I had to warp out about 6-7 times, a couple times to take down the neuts and roughly everytime a new spawn appeared.
-new spawns almost exclusively targetted my "logistics" raven...just for the sake of tanking properly, I warped out and back in to get all aggro on the mega.
-the NPC tracking disruptors are VERY effective.
-although this is deadspace without a gate, you DO NOT have the option to "warp to 100 (or further out)" in the literal sense. I tried several times to get to 200km+ sniping range but my most successful warp-in was roughly 60km-130km from everything. I absolutely could not get further out using bookmarks and suspect this is intended.
-I did NOT get a spawn from destroying the outpost. I did not shoot the outpost until all ships/towers were destroyed. Destroying the tower flagged the mission complete.
-the ships in my spawns varied quite a bit; I saw a lot more "Loyal" HACs than what is listed here. All of them appear to have the tracking disruption ability.
-total bounties is in the 18mil ballpark...salvage was relatively laughable.
-missioning/looting/salvaging took about two and a half hours.

Mission is doable in NM with a logistic that can supply the needed cap (2 large energy transfers will do just fine)
- Warp in NM
- Wait about a minute while frigs all get there
- Shoot the turrets while you have cap
- Warp logistic in
- Use hobIIs to pick off frigs and kill the spawns
- There are only 3-4 TDing cruisers in the whole mission. For those just load up longest range ammo you have (you should be carrying Standard for those cases anyway) and kill them

Overall, very easy mission for NM

To Blitz this one, just kill the outpost and the BS and cruisers that spawn from it 13/02/10

Can confirm that as of January 2015 you only need to kill outpost and whatever cruisers and battleships spawn when you shoot at it.
