Ran it in a Brutix - ECM city! lol
State Fudai (BC?) jammed, Stats Chugen also (caracals?)
Drone aggro too - heavy dps for a while - I wasn't paying attention to the triggers so it may be easier if you do...

Just to confirm, the gate does allow entry with a battleship, entered mission with my megathron with no problems.

Confirm that last of shiptype triggers spawn. In a well-tanked battleship this required care, and attention to triggers. And spawns do indeed target drones.

In a battlecruiser this is terrifying! I had to warp out within thirty seconds of the initial group arriving. Not tried yet, but I think the only way would be to fit afterburner and run like crazy as soon as you warp in, so you can get a bit of distance between you and some of the ships before your tank is broken.

The ECM is a pain -- starts as soon as initial group arrives, so they get some free hits before you can begin to fight back. Drones on the auto-attack help here, of course, but don't launch before the initial group has targeted you, and do remember to bring them in before you trigger each spawn. Also watch that they don't pick off a spawn trigger before you're ready for it.

Initial group arrives at 16-17km, if you've not moved, by the way. Other groups spawn closer, and move out to 11-20km quite quickly.

I _think_ the mission was over when I killed the last of the initial group. So perhaps a sort-of blitz would be just to kill all the initial group. That theory needs testing.

State Bukes jam as well if you get them.

This was absolutely painful in a Battlecruiser. My armor tank myrmidon nearly bit the dust with 78% kinetic/thermal resistances and a medium armor repairer II. Definitely one that makes you work for your reward

Took me about 40 minutes in armor-tanking T1 Mermidon (had to warp off once). Most important things is to turn on the AB and start running as soon as you land in the room. 3 BC and the rest of the fleet which warp-in around you make a lot of damage so keeping 35-40 km from them is essential.

@KimbeauSurveryor: There does not appear to be a blitz. The mission did not complete for me until I destroyed the last ship of the last spawn.

Completed this in a Caracal. 6mill SP. Didn't watch for triggers, just went and blew it all up. Rather simple. Don't know why so many had trouble in bigger, tankier ships.
