Tips:
Fire on the bottom group to get aggro from 3 groups. Different groups may aggro but the strength is the same. Amarr Navy Jakars deal a lot of damage and tank very strongly with EM being the lowest resist at 50%. The Sentries will only fire on you if you get close to them (Around 30-40km). If you can, kill the frigs while they approach with their MWDs active. Otherwise consider:

All Interceptors orbit between 3000 m and 6300 m, thus Smartbombs can be used to destroy them quickly, but faction ones (e.g. Imperial Navy Large EMP Smartbomb) are required to eliminate all interceptors. Tech 1 large smartbombs do not have enough for this job. Drones work fine but the number of interceptors in the third pocket is rather high.

The proper way to do this mission safely is to attack the LEFT group first, but this is tricky to do unless you have the range to attack them without approaching - the low group has proximity aggro around 50km (?) which means neither you, your buddies or your drones can get too close to them. Anyway, attacking the left group agroes the back group as well, and that group contains the mission objective. Start heading away with as good speed as you can and downing frigates with guns, and drones when the enemy is beyond agro range of the low group. This is best done with a sniper fit (i.e. able to hit for good damage beyond 50 km). You can then attack the other groups if you want to (or not, to "blitz").

The mission objective (Amarr Light Marines) is dropped by the last ship of the back group.

Standing loss:
2.4% loss with the Amarr Empire per standing tick (15 minutes).
NO loss with the Caldari State.
