Blackbird is the 19th mission in the international version of Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere.


4 large Neuwork air transports are closing in on General Resource's White Valley Air Base with a high altitude approach. Fly the RF-12A2 "Blackbird" with high altitude combat capabilities to intercept them.


The mission's primary objective is to shoot down a group of four Moburas. If the primary objective is not completed in 1:30, the Moburas are no longer targets and 2 Remoras will appear for every Mobura still intact; the new objective is to take out all of the Remoras.

Obtaining an A-Rank requires clearing the mission in less than 2 minutes. If it takes longer than 4 minutes to destroy all targets, the player will earn a Mission Over and a D-Rank.


[Mission Start]

(If the timer reaches 1:30 and there are any Moburas left, they will launch Remoras.)

We've detected the launch of smaller aircraft from the transports. Engage and eliminate all hostiles.

[When all Moburas or Remoras are shot down, the screen fades to black.)

[Mission End]


You successfully defended General Resource's air base.


  1. Two units spawn for every Mobura that survives past 2 minutes.
  2. Any Mobura that survives past 2 minutes becomes a regular enemy.
