2x Drone Battlecruiser (Enforcer Alvatis)
2x Drone Cruiser (Disintegrator Alvum)

After few minutes, the Battleship Drone will spawn (Alvus Ruler, Supreme Alvus Parasite, possibly others). It has high damage, even at 50km, so be careful. As you shoot the BS, another group of drones (Wave 7) will spawn.

Go in passive tanked, ignore all sentries and neut towers. While waiting for the BS, kill off the first spawn. Wait for the BS to come out of the range of the stasis towers (you won't have cap to tractor the loot can), then go for it, pick up the can, finito.

Alternative Blitz:
Go in passive tanked, but kill the Stasis Towers early. There's plenty of time to take care of the triggered Strain spawn before the BS drone with the mission loot spawns, and this way you can attack it earlier (while still closer to the structures).

Smartbombs are a good idea again. Stay out of the range of the stasis towers. It is best to go for passive tanking and take the towers one by one (starting with the energy neutralizers). Destroy each spawn before continuing to the next tower. If you are active tanked, then: primary the energy neutralizers, kill each spawn as it arrives and before proceeding to the next tower. Primary Strain drones (Scramblers), and then the Violator Drones as they do the most damage.
