No map change. Here's an updated look at our medal chest, though.

Let's Meet the Lilith, Isis, Satis, and Ankh

I forgot to show this one last level, because I didn't realize the cruisers weren't Cains. You can see why.

Sentry guns are rarely used in either FS1 or 2, for whatever reason. This description implies it's due to the abundance of light fighters, at least for the Vasudans. Sentries go down easily, but they're actually mildly dangerous, given that you have to be in their firing range to take them out, until longer-range missiles come into play. Still, I didn't have to just sit there while it got closer and closer to nailing me. But I did.
