Simply complete all of the missions on hard. This is not score dependent so you could finish with all E ratings, so long as you just finish all of the levels.

Know the level and your objectives. Play through on normal if you need a refresher, hard is only a little different. Stick to the objectives ( generally destroy all enemies) but in the case where you have to destroy a specific one or support structures then do just that, don't bother will all the other enemies. Don't forget to dodge often, even if it doesn't look like there is an enemy aiming at you. There could be a huge missile barrage coming right for you.

Everyone has different playing styles so it is hard to recommend a specific AC. Don't be afraid to completely change your AC for the mission, few if any ACs will do well on all missions.

You will die, many times. Some levels are pretty frustrating and others are a breeze. After playing the level a few times you should know what to expect and when. Adopt a strategy and go for it. On the more difficult levels you should look up the many video solutions on youtube.

Some levels will truly be hard. Learn the level and what to attack your opponents with, I typically go with a Mid/Heavy AC with dual Gatling Guns and dual Grenade Cannons. The grenade cannons work well since they do not require a direct hit, which is great for those pesky nexts.

On levels with large slow moving air fortresses, get a light AC and equip it with laser blades. Dodge the missles and laser cannon as best as you can and then land on top of the fortress and slice away. It should only take a few hits with a good laser blade to destroy the fortress, even on hard.

Good Luck and don't give up, you just need to get through the mission.
