GAUNTLET Team, also called as Team Gauntlet or simply GAUNTLET is an elite fireteam-sized cross-branch unit consisting of SPARTAN-IIIs and SPARTAN-IIs ranging from various classes and companies, as of 2552. Similar to NOBLE Team, Gauntlet was under command of Special Warfare Group Three of the UNSC Army, although its Spartans were still part of Navy. As of 2552, only 5 members of the team are alive.


Gauntlet Team primarily consists of Spartan-IIIs pulled out of their respective companies by Senior Chief Petty Offier Franklin Mendez and Lieutenant Commander Kurt Ambrose before the suicide missions where most of the unpicked Spartans from each company were killed, Operation: PROMETHEUS for Alpha Company and Operation: TORPEDO for Beta Company. Two exceptions are Carris-137 and Saran-197 who are SPARTAN-IIs.

They are known to have participated in countless battles, possibly as many battles as the legendary Blue Team has participated. However, throughout all the battles, the five original members are always present, with new members like Julia-B047 and Jack-B157 having stayed with them only temporarily.

Just like NOBLE Team, GAUNTLET Team is issued with equipment used by the Spartan-IIs, such as the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor, which is far much advanced than the Semi-Powered Infiltration Armor used by the other Spartan-IIIs, although members of Gauntlet are allowed to keep their old Mark II SPI Armors with them.
