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. The most
trouble you will get is 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 you
engage 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.
