Game Analysis

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

"A highly durable fighter with heavy weaponry designed for close air support. The C-model has been modified with, for example, upgraded avionics, and features a glass cockpit with a vastly different layout. Though designed with combat in mind, it has a distinct look, with engines mounted to the upper part of the body and straight wings. Stable at slow speeds when engaging in air-to-ground attacks, it is fitted with anti-surface armament including 30mm machine guns. Its toughened armor gives it strong resistance to anti-air fire, making the craft highly durable. The extraordinary power of the machine guns (a trademark of the A-10) has led some to say somewhat humorously that they cause the craft to slow down when fired. Although its existence was threatened by multirole fighters because of its lack of self-defense capabilities in aerial combat, its war records helped prove its worth in battle. Its nickname is "Thunderbolt II"."

  • In real life, the A-10C is unable to exceed a speed of 520 MPH in level flight. Ace Combat depicts the aircraft as being able to reach speeds much higher than that, especially with tuning.
