You arrive in the middle of two large groups (135km to the nearest rat) and two gates (40km to each gate approx). One for your primary enemy, and one for the faction mentioned in the mission briefing (in this case, Blood Raiders and Angels). They start far away from you behind their own gate. The gates are locked until you kill the last ship of that faction. But, you can unlock them by carrying Zbikoki's Hacker Card (obtained from Zor) in your cargohold. It will be consumed on activation.
Group 1 (Blood Raiders), 135 km from warp in
3x Elite Frigate (Elder Corpii Follower/Elder Corpii Herald/Elder Corpii Worshiper/Dark Corpii Upholder) Web/Scramblers
2x Elite Cruiser (Elder Corpum Dark Priest / Elder Corpum Shadow Sage) NOS
3x Battleship (Corpus Prophet / Corpus Oracle) Gate Unlock Trigger
Group 2 (Angel Cartel), 135 km from warp in
3x Elite Frigate (Arch Gistii Thug / Arch Gistii Outlaw) Web/Scramblers
3x Elite Cruiser (Gistum Domination Crusher / Gistum Domination Smasher)
4x Battleship (Gist Malakim / Gist Throne) Gate Unlock Trigger
If you can't build a strong enough omni-tank based on the information provided, I'd suggest tanking EM/TH first and take the mission to completion, and then come back with your Angel Cartel tank before turning the mission in.
Both Groups are "anchored" to within about 30km of their start locations, which are about 85 to 95 km behind their gate. This makes it easy to snipe them from the far edge of the gate if you can lock and hit from that far out. Neither group can hit you from 55km.
