This mission has no corresponding operation page since it is not considered part of Strangereal canon.
For the unit, see Alect Squadron.

Alect Squadron is one of the final missions of Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception. It is one of the two alternatives available after the Griswall missions, the other being the air-to-ground oriented Armada.


Intelligence has confirmed the outline of a squadron of Leasath fighters bound for Archelon Fortress.

A sympathizer from within the enemy has informed us that the squadron is none other than Leasath's elite Alect Squadron. If they were to capture Archelon Fortress' Fenrir, one can only imagine the devastation they would cause. The Danern Straits could provide us with a chance to intercept them before they reach the fortress.

Your mission will be to take on this elite unit. You must destroy them all.


The mission's primary objective is to shoot down the Alect Squadron. However, the player must shoot down four planes before they appear.

[Mission start]

Crux: Multiple fighters coming in head on. You should see an enemy squadron shortly.

Falco One: This is Falco One. I've always wanted to fly with you. My son's a big fan of yours. Well, me too. [refering to the approaching hostiles] The enemy's come.

Aurelia Squadron: There's so many of them. In the ten years I've been flying I've never been in such a massive dogfight.

Falco One: Listen up everybody! Don't fall behind the Southern Cross!

[When three enemies are destroyed]

Leasath pilot: Dammit, we're losing! Don't superior numbers count for anything!?

[When four enemies are destroyed]

Falco One: Check your radar! Something's coming from far off! Enemy reinforcements! Look out!

Falco Two: Damn! He's got the sun to his back, I can't see!

Falco One: Don't panic! We've got the Southern Cross!

Alect 1: The battle's begun. So, which one's Nemesis?

Alect 2: I've heard just about enough of your tall tales for one lifetime. It's time to see if you measure up!

Alect 1: All Leasath fighters! Leave this one to me!

Crux: They've come! The Alect Squadron's here! Don't let them near Archelon Fortress! Destroy them all!

[When a total of seven non-TGT enemy aircraft are destroyed]

Falco One: Enemy numbers are decreasing.

[When one TGT is destroyed]

Alect 2: He's still alive!? It can't be!

[When two TGTs are destroyed]

Alect 1: Alect 4 converge with Alect 1! We'll trap Nemesis in the crossfire!

[When three TGTs are destroyed]

Alect Squadron: Alect 2 hit!

[When four TGTs are destroyed]

Alect 1: Alect 3 down! He's too quick!

[When five TGTs are destroyed]

Falco One: The Southern Cross's got a bead on the Alect Squadron!

[When all TGTs are destroyed]

Crux: Destruction of the Alect Squadron confirmed. The mission was a success!

[Mission end]


We've succeeded in stopping the Alect Unit before they could reach Archelon Fortress. It was an extremely dangerous mission, but we had to stop them from getting behind the controls of Fenrir. This was a very important victory for us. Great work.
