•You don't need to kill the miners. Destroying the Mobile refinery completes mission.

•Warping in at 100 km by warping to 0, stopping your ship, and then warping to 100 km does not work. Instead, use a bookmark.

I don't run anti faction missions, but I was interested in this one. First, killing the mobile refinery alone does complete the mission. Second, I wanted to run this mission without any faction drop: flying a (maxed out skills) snake with 3084 dps tank against the max of 2787 dps incoming (62% therm/38% kinetic) including a maxed out booster and 3 faction BS to come in to save me if I was going to die. Mission took 3 minutes to get into position and about 3 to kill the refinery, then mission over. ZERO standings hit other than the normal for a storyline.

My suggestion:
If you want to tank it, it has to be an overtank set to specific damage AND remember, until you're in optimal, you're getting damaged.
If you want to take the standings hit, it's just another "lots of ships" mission.

Just take down the refinery and the mission is done.

Destroying the mobile refinery makes all the enemies bail out.

Mission is blitz'able in a range fitted Caracal, orbiting at 78km and just blowing up the station. Took 4 minutes of firing.

Did this in a Maelstrom. Sniping at 91km. Had to warp out once. Bookmark seemed not to work, returned right into the middle of the swarm :( However, destroyed the mobile refinery and everyone bailed, leving me with 23% armor (shield tanked, but did not start the booster - to late so i opted to warping out again, but then the factory blow up).
However I lost standing to Gallente:
-2.4% Combat - Ship kill (I did not shoot any ship)
-5.187 Derived Modification

Also there is a number of roids to mine - but i did not, so there's info to fill...

decided to test the 'blitz', mostly because I can't take a huge gallente 'hit' right now.
although nothing immediately aggro'd me, as I approached the mobile refinery and before firing (HAM tengu 30km range T2 rage missles) everything aggro'd. maybe just locking the refinery is enough to set them off? that is a lot of ships by the time everything has spawned .recommend managing the number of ships you have spawned at any one time.
did not get webbed, but i'm not sure if the frigates got close enough either way.
approx. 90% therm and kin resists..when the refinery popped shields were at 91%. never even turned on the booster.
yes they all bugger off once the refinery is gone.
yes mission is still flagged complete when the refinery dies.
asteroids....approx 10-15 each of plagio, scordite, and veld.
still took a -2.4% hit to gallente standings for combat ship kill....since the only thing that blew up was the refinery, that must be for that.
