- changed weapons on fighter aircraft to fire longer bursts to make them more effective. Also increased dmg/s and HP for level 2 fighters
(they're somewhat more expensive, but more cost-effective now)

- reduced cost by 15% for non-amphibious surface ships to balance the fact that most maps favour land
- reduced slightly reduced speed and HP for expensive ships (further reduces cost)
- reduced cost of GEAR "Canister"
- changed GEAR "Dominator Form" commander to have two heavy cannons (better at bombarding but no longer effective vs aircraft)
- removed the option to morph commanders back to basic form (was missing from previous versions)

- changed SPHERE "Gaunt" model to differentiate it more from Bit and to raise the firing position
