|All of a sudden your instruments flash a string of messages, a transport ship connected to this station is reporting a malfunction and gives this location ...|
After warping in you receive a message about interacting with a disabled mammoth (large collidable object). You need to shoot it with a turret/launcher. Drones won't do anything. EWAR modules will work, though.
|Shortly after warp-in|
|The Broken Down Mammoth in the area seems to be submitting strange radio-waves. Perhaps if you interacted with it in some way ...|
|1 x Industrial Broken-Down Mammoth|
|A small group of Angel ships have warped into the area.
Ship Computer: Distress signals can be detected being sent between the Drone Controllers.
The Angel ships have left the area.

|It looks like you were not the only one to pick up the distress call from that transport and luckily enough your instruments got a lock on the ship that warped out. After a few milliseconds of number crunching, your navigation computer comes up with this location as its most probable destination.|
|The ship you have tracked can be seen inside this area. However it seems to be activating up its warp-drive ....|

Warning: Incoming DPS can be very high due to close proximity of spawns.
The facility webs have 20 km range and -75% speed reduction. Attacking the station will trigger reinforcement wave.
The valuable drops are in the Secret Angel Facility. These include Gistii A-Type modules and Dramiel BPC.
It is possible to blitz this section by dropping a bookmark at the warp-in, warping off, warping at range to the bookmark and sniping the Secret Angel Facility to greatly reduce incoming damage.

|Escalation completion message:|
|It looks like you have managed to destroy a facility developing one of the hottest new commodities in the galactic underworld, the Nuclear Small Arms. As far as you know, none of these new weapons have hit the market yet, but from the look of this place, it is not long until common criminals will go nuclear. You can't help wondering what is wrong with the good old sawed off shotgun.|
This expedition end message will also appear in local.
Typical commander loot includes Domination copper and silver dog tags and some faction ammo, as well as possible Domination faction modules or a Mid-Grade Halo implant. The Secret Angel Facility in final location can drop Gistii A-Type modules or a rare Dramiel BPC.
Usually the first three locations are in high sec and the final one in low sec but there are exceptions.
