and you show that it can be done with shuttles what have 1-2 weapons.
Oddly enough, we think Shuttles could be easier, as the Delta Flyer's hull strength scales to the player's rank. At Vice Admiral, it's got more hit points than our Constitutions and Mirandas. Two weapons would be sufficient, assuming we used all buffs and debuffs available to us in combination with the gravitic anchor and tricobalt spam.

The optional however, is basically impossible, as it requires the tactical cube to be destroyed within 15 minutes of the mission start. Shuttles and T1 ships simply don't have the damage potential to pull that off.

Be interesting to see a group do ISE in shuttles so good luck

Edit: It was an Ausmonauts vid, so good luck to you on the Elite
That was us. A couple of people in the video were also involved in this one.
