Structures
No loot
Total Bounty around 2.8 mil

Bonus Pocket (optional)

Needs Angel Palladium tag to enter, not consumed.

You warp in roughly 75-90km from the rats, which all aggro immediately except for the sentry, presumably because it's out of range. Angel Vipers/Webifier close in pretty fast, other frigs are a little slower. There are no triggers or respawns reported.

1x Tower Sentry Angel III

2x Elite Frigates (Arch Gistii Ambusher/Raider) web/scram
4x Battleships (Gist Nephilim/Saint/Warlord) target painting


Structures
Battlestation drops loot. Be prepared to shoot a long time. (The loot can be generic and unimpressive, and generally not worth it. At 200dps it will take about ten minutes. The explosion, on the other hand, is gigantic.)

Terzam's Stash drops random generic loot as well


Tip
Watch out for heavy webbing/scrambling in the bonus stage.
Saint uses Bane torpedoes [explo.] AND some shorter range [45 km?] weapon with thermal damage.
Nephilim does a fair amount of explosive damage using Bane torpedoes
Warlord does a fair amount of explosive damage using Bane torpedoes
