Trivia

  • The nickname for the Lv.10 Super Hornet, if playing on Japanese rather than English, translates to "Beware of Horn", referring to a rhino's horn since the United States Navy refers to the Super Hornet as the Rhino.
  • The nickname Sturmovik which is gained by upgrading the Su-25TM Frogfoot to Lv.3 refers to the Il-2, a famous Soviet Attack Plane from the second World War.
  • The nickname Ski Jumper which is gained by upgrading the Su-33 Flanker-D to Lv.3 refers to the fact that the Su-33 Flanker-D lifts off the Admiral Kuznetsov, which is an aircraft carrier that has a ski jump at the end of the runway.
  • The nickname Golden Eagle which is gained by upgrading the Su-47 Berkut to Lv.3 refers to the direct translation of the namesake aircraft.
  • The nickname Grey Ghost which is gained by upgrading the YF-23 Black Widow II to Lv.10 refers to the second YF-23A prototype.
  • The Lv.15 nickname for the A-10A Thunderbolt II, The Stuka Bloodline, refers to the World War 2-era dive bomber, the Junkers Ju 87. Additionally, consultations from the most decorated ace of this type, Hans-Ulrich Rudel, were used in the development of the A-10.
  • The nickname 40 Seconds, gained by upgrading the F-15C Eagle to Lv.15, refers to Col. John "40 Seconds" Boyd, a USAF fighter pilot and strategist whose energy-manuverability theories helped in developing the F-15. During his career as an instructor pilot, Boyd claimed that, starting from a position of disadvantage in a dogfight, he could outmanuever his opponent turning his disadvantageous position into an advantageous one within 40 seconds, hence his nickname.
  • Related to the previous is the nickname Aircraft Mafia, gained by upgrading the F-16C Fighting Falcon to Lv.15.
