Well I tried the Stealth B on Hard. First battle, I said "screw this" and never touched the Stealth ships again for anything but an Easy breeze.
Honestly, the Stealth Ships to me are just gimmicks. Fun for a little Easy romp but anything higher and you'll be wishing you had something better instead.
My high score on hard is actually with the Stealth B, so I don`t agree that they are just gimmicks. At the start, all you really have to do is survive until you can fully upgrade the stealth module, so you can safely load the beam without taking hits. And since you start with four weapon power you can swap it out for basically anything if you get lucky with the RNG. Max stealth and some engines, double burst laser II and off you go to at least sector six before anything is likely to cause you any trouble. Also, a level 1 shield and a defensive drone does you a world of good with the stealth ships. They already take a lot less hits than the other ships, and with just a cheap shield or a drone to take the brunt off whatever makes it through it`s amazing how evasive you can be.
It`s all taste I think. My personal hate ship is the rock cruiser because it starts with just missiles. I hate missiles. If you don`t find a proper weapon by the end of sector 2 you`re dead basically.
