Mission briefing
A secret Gallente outpost nearby just suffered a catastrophic overload in its main power core. The resulting explosion obliterated the outpost. The Gallente navy is on its way there to look for survivors.

We don't care about the Gallente civilians, but we do care about the massive amount of sensitive information that might be stored in the remnants of the outpost's central information core. That outpost was a communications hub routing vast amounts of data back into Gallente space. There's no telling what secrets we could uncover with that information core.

We want you to go to the remnants of the outpost and sift through the debris until you find that central data core. Just pick it up and bring it back.

This might sound easy, except that the Gallente Navy is already en route to the location. They likely won't be looking for the core themselves; they'll be picking up survivors. However, intelligence reports say that the rescue fleet is large, and they might not react favorably to Amarr vessels nosing around in the face of their tragedy.

No aggro on warp-in. The mission objective is marked as complete once the last battleship in Wave 3 has been destroyed.


Initial Group, 40km
WD EWAR L


Frigate 4 x Frigate Federation Libertus/Manica
Destroyer 3 x Destroyer Federation Arcus/Pelekus Last destroyed triggers Wave 1

Killing a random battleship will trigger Wave 2, and killing the last battleship in Wave 1 will trigger Wave 3.

The Federation Hexeris orbits at 50-55km, and has an optimal range of 45km.

The Elite Federation Mataras and Elite Federation Manicas should be dealt with first, as their sensor dampening and web/scram capabilities can greatly reduce both a ship's combat effectiveness and ability to escape.
