The Core Runner Drop Production Facility is a chemical lab found in the Cloud Ring region. It must be scanned down with scanner probes, and will appear as a gas site in the probe window. The site is not in deadspace nor behind a gate, so it is possible to warp around freely and for people to warp directly to you.

Walkthrough

Warpin
Forever seeking new ways to spread their influence in the illegal booster industry, the Core Runners looked to the famed Thukker Tribe caravans for inspiration. No longer content to base their sales exclusively out of static locations, they have begun to push forward and establish temporary markets wherever demand is highest.

Marketing highly valuable Exile and Drop boosters in such a way presents numerous challenges and temptations to all involved. For this reason Serpentis put only their most trusted narco-thugs in charge of this new operation: Sarpati himself is said to have handpicked the two Captains and their lieutenants.

The site contains both combat and hacking.

Warp-in pocket

All the ships will be named Core Runner < something >.

It is possible to tank the initial defenders with a strong enough tank, while you hack the cans and skip the combat. But this will leave you without the possible commander drops.
Another tactic is to clear the site in a PvE fitted combat ship, and then refit or reship to a hacking ship once the site is cleared.

Destroy the energy neuting towers first, then the frigates and up in size.
