Completed 'The High Road' (Eagle Grip) missions in a T2 rigged Faction/Deadspace fitted Command ship (Sleipnir). Active shield tank, close range weapons.

Mission 10 - Underground Circus
The Sensor Dampening done by NPC's is rather annoying. Kiting them from range didn't work for me. I found that by getting into close orbit on each NPC doing it, I was able to target and hold lock on that specific NPC.

Mission 11 - Intaki Chase
Syndicate Veteran Battleships are tough, especially in spawn 3. Since each spawn doesn't auto aggro, I was able to get in optimal orbit at top speed with Drones out so that my initial attack was Alpha strike. By the time NPC's aggro, 1st of the 4 Battleships in spawn 3 was already at 1/2 armor damage.

Using a Loki was damped to about 9500m max targeting range most of the first group.

For Mission 9 - Hidden Camera, heed the agent advice and use small ship. Went there with Domi, Pocket 1 contained 4x Battleship Response Team BS, about 10x battlecruisers besides the normal spawn. Heavy DPS, realized too late, got popped. Finished with Dragoon destroyer after DT respawn, the second time with ease - just some frigates.

Also, gate to pocket 1 unlocks only after the rats in warp-in pocket are destroyed, so this is impossible to do in covert ops frigate without combat.

Mission 10 - Underground Circus

None of the structures dropped any valuable loot.

Mission 11 - Intaki Chase

None of the structures drop loot and the Control Tower caused the spawn.
