If you fly towards each industrial they disappear. After the last industrial
has disappeared the first wave of ships arrives.

Spawn 1 (auto aggro) (30-40km?)

WARNING: DPS from Spawn 3 can be quite heavy. Keep aligned to a nearby gate or planet and be prepared to warp out if necessary.

(Spawn 3 is actually two separate spawns)

Fly toward the structure, when you are close to it the spawn will appear.
The aggro doesn't get too bad until the last spawn, if you are still working on the last group the dps gets fairly high. Even so your normal Guristas fit should be ok.

You CAN bm a wreck and warp out then warp back to your chosen range in this mission. (My Raven is currently a 'failfit').

Just completed in a raven, there are some changes to be made that im certain of, and other ones ill just comment on,
-all my battleships were ursurpers,
-all the spawns were about 30-40km,
-the orientation of the platforms consisted of 2 closer and 2 farther from warp in, i approached the courier on my right first and all the spawns came after that the timing of each i am uncertain sorry (but i did shoot said courier about 30 seconds before i got close and it dissapeared just as a test, can someone confirm if you only have to shoot this one?)
-that 3rd spawn came as 2 for me, the following spawn was about a minute after that one so i assume they are different, it was half of those ships mentioned :so 2x elite cruisers, 2x battlecruisers and 3x battlehips in each.

so could someone confirm the courier i mentioned please, ill go ahead and put in 30-40km spawn range and /ursurper, oh i will also leave the final spawn to be confirmed also, thank you for your time. :D

Mission has no gate.
Flew to the first NPC and nothing happened. Flew to the 2nd and the GF walked in wanting a hand with her laptop so i hit warp and walk out... 20 minutes later i come back.

Sitting safely at the station, i warp back to the mission. I'm greeted with a message about "the drugs transport got chicken and run off".
Spawn 1 is waiting for me at the beacon.

Spawn 1
3 Pith Massacrer 1.16 mil
4 Dire Pithi Destructor 27k

Spawn 2 - arrived about 3 minutes after i started attacking spawn 1.
3 Pith Massacrer 1.16mil
3 Pithatis Executor 131k

After killing the last Massacrer spawn 3 arrived (it was the last ship left so no idea if it's a trigger), no delay. About 3 minutes into the fight spawn 4 joined in.

Spawn 3
4 Pithatis revolter 153k
4 Pith Massacrer 1.16mil

Spawn 4
3 Pith Massacrer 1.16mil
3 Dire Pith inferno 258k

At no point was i webbed or scrambled, although i imagine it's quite possible.

Trigger for first wave was 5k distance from closest State Courier on the right side after warping in.

Trigger for final wave was the last Pith Massacrer.
