The smallest wave I've seen is a single frigate drone; the largest being two cruiser and two frigate drones. The bunker is no longer damageable.
I like to use a Hurricane with four gas harvesters, two cannons, a salvager, a tractor beam and a full complement of combat drones. This breaks up the monotony of the the slow gas harvesters!

Eventually the drone waves stop spawning. I went in with my venture but couldn't handle the drones, I brought in my pve ship and killed the waves as they kept coming. Around 4 or 5 waves in they stopped, then I went back and got my venture and harvested the cloud without being bothered again.

I did this mission with an afterburner equipped Venture. Orbit the cloud and speed tank. Had to limit the ships speed to <700m/s in order to stay in range of the gas harvesters. Use acolytes to kill the drones. Salvage the wrecks as you fly by in orbit.
