To easily complete the Gauntlets, fly an Ursa Bomber with Prometius and Flail as primary weapons, and Hornets, Synaptic Cluster Missiles, and Harbinger Bombs. With this configuration, you can kill anything. You may only have trouble when you are attacked by Interceptors. Focus on one ship while your turret fends off the rest. Use Synaptics to destroy clusters of ships, or to protect yourself if you are overrun. When engaging the cruiser and destroyer class ships, fire a Synaptic to distract the fighters for a bit and use double fire Harbingers to severly damage the capital ship. The Ursa may be slow and unmaneuverable, but is counterbalanced by its superior fire power and the helpful turret.
