Hi everyone - wanted to follow up to spread the knowledge. I took the plunge and ran this in my Golem, and it worked out okay. If anyone is interested, here are
Golem - 4 Torp Launcher II’s, bastion, tractor - two empty high slots. (Needed every ounce of CPU for…)
Mids were an MJD, Pith A-type XLSB, EM, Explosive, Thermal hardener, and two faction TP’s. (Because Golem!)
4 damage mods in the lows.
With Jav torpedoes I could kill frigs out to 80km in one volley and BS in 5 volleys. If they got closer, I could take them out in 4 volleys out to 53 km.
Main pocket I used MJD to strategically place myself within range of only a couple of the sentry towers to take them out. Hopped around to various sides to take out waves from distance.
Entered the bonus room. Wow - lots of BS already spawned - 10 I think? 5-6 more a couple minutes later. Lots of scramming frigates 40 km away, they engaged right away. Ok, no screwing around. Aligned away from the crowd, MJD’ed once. Took out a few frigs, but there was still too many larger ships too close together - they were all going to get in range at the same time - so I do another MJD away in the same direction. (Marauders get huge bonus to MJD reactivation delay.) The second MJD was plenty to thin out the crowd - easily took out the frigates, then the BC and Cruisers, then the BS. Javelin torps all the way.
It was good to get this mission under my belt, but honestly, not worth the time outside of possible faction standing increases, if that matters to you. Salvaged the whole thing - maybe… 6 million in salvage for both pockets? Wreck dropped a 5 million ISK tag - not super impressive.
A big exciting of a mission, perhaps, but too much time for too little reward to do a full-clear. Better to blitz by killing the structure and bolting.
Thank you all for the info.
