Abstract: We consider a non-supersymmetric type IIB brane configuration that realises a three dimensional USp(2N) gauge theory with quarks in the two-index antisymmetric representation and SO(4) flavour symmetry. Using type IIB S-duality we find the mirror dual, an SO(2N-1) field theory with scalars in the antisymmetric representation. Analysing the magnetic dual we study the vacuum structure of the USp(2N) model and propose that the SO(4) global symmetry is unbroken. In order to support our proposal we present an SO(4) symmetric BIon configuration that describes anti-D3 branes polarising into fivebranes in the S-dual Hanany-Witten setup. We also comment on dynamical flavour symmetry breaking in other QCD3 theories with quarks in two-index representations.
