Easily done in my armor tanked Hurricane. Aggro'd the entire second room and never dropped below 90-95% armor. Thermal damage works well.

Second room didn't even get past my shields on an armor tanked Myrmidon.

2nd room got past my shields on my droneboat myrm but that's because I aggroed all three groups at once and didn't bother kiting them. A fairly easy mission, no significant loot, but good payout.

completed the mission in my Ishkur, never reached armor even though my ships an armor tank.

first room: nobrainer

second room : approach group 2 about 40km and attack a frig from the 1st group you'll get massive aggro from second group, return your drones and head ( best you alligned in the first place ) away from all groups, second group will follow including the transports, finish them 1 by 1 with your drones by keeping a distance of 30km+ destroy the transports and its done

Easily and quickly completed in T2 fitted and rigged Artillery/Missile Hurricane - Passive shield with active hardener. T2 Drones and FoF Heavy Missiles worked great when target lock was lost due to EWAR damp from NPC's.

The missions says it has special ship restrictions, but the types that aren't allowed (compared to normal) are:

Capital Industrial Ship
Jump Freighter
Prototype Exploration Ship

In other words, nothing to worry about.

Pocket 2 note says shooting Group 1 first does not aggro 2 or 3, but the instant I shot Group 1 all of Group 2 aggro'd me.

T2 passive drake, just sat at warp-in and picked them off as they came in. did get damped, but never lost target lock. did not see any drone aggro until area 2. I popped the transports and the drone aggro stopped.
