We have a group of 5 pilots that we use to do these missions and the key is that the ships tend to aggro the mission runner first, he should be setup to be able to shoot at 100 km, must be able to tank( ie apoc with one sensor booster)This allows him to aggro groups at need. You also need a medic (apoc or dominix with 2 large remote(apoc better, 6 mega pulse as well as 2 remote large armor reppers)) then a massive damage setup(ganka geddon, ganka tempest) and a high speed sigil or exqueror for collecting loot.
We can complete a silence the informant level 4 in under 1 hour, and we are getting better. The remote reppers are the key, they can keep a 4 hardner tank going forever and a day. and with 3 bs shooting back and concentrating fire a bs lasts maybe a minute. The tempest (c r a c k s)(darn swear filter) em like eggs. The small ship is setup as a friggy killer, this helps alot, a dommie with a really good boatload of drones kicks some serious butt as well.
We are having a great time doing these missions and with ventrilo or ts, we can communictae and coordinate fire extremely well, and noone has lost a ship in ages, and that was due to a ctd.
This works, solo is for crazy people and since we use the crap loot to refine and build new ships through the industry part of the corp, we can all do what we like and not be restricted, which is good since this is a GAME, and good games are played with friends.
