Drops Caldari Navy Overlay Transponder that you need for this mission.

First Room

A ton of ships, all of them won't engage you.

Second Room

All the ships from the first room will come through in their groups and engage you. Each group is triggered as you get closer to the Caldari Bunker that contains the objective.

Each squadron is a group:
5x Frigate (Alpha Squadron)
5x Frigate (Bravo Squadron)
5x Frigate (Charlie Squadron)
5x Frigate (Delta Squadron)
5x Frigate (Echo Squadron)
5x Frigate (Foxtrot Squadron)

Blitz (tanky): Kill Eroma Eralen, loot the overlay transponder. Fly through the first room and in the second burn towards the bunker and pop the forcefield (>150 DPS required) and bunker, then loot the objective. You will be tanking all the spawns at once so this is only recommended in a semi-tanky ship.

Blitz (ninja): Kill Eroma Eralen, loot the overlay transponder. Fit a weapon with +15k range and a tractor beam (or two). Kite the blob of rats away from the forcefield bubble. Burn around them and back to the bunker. Destroy the bunker and tractor the containers out of the forcefield. There will probably be two, one with ammo, the other with the mission item.
