Some Cool Planes

While perusing the vast archive of both near-future and possible far-future real world aircraft on Google, I came across several that I thought would be fun to see on an Ace Combat game. Granted, the list of planes to choose from is already huge - with Unsung War

  • 1 Chengdu J-20 Wēilóng (Mighty Dragon)
  • 2 Sukhoi Su-75 Checkmate
  • 3 Lockheed-Northrop F/A-37 Talon
  • 4 Northrop-Grumman F-21 Super Tomcat
  • 5 Boeing F-32 Firehawk

Final AC7 S Ranks

Greetings, aces! We've got an update on the Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown S Rank information presented on the wiki. Thanks to xBlazededge sharing some in-game data with us, we're now able to present the exact S Rank conditions for every mission in the game.

  • 1 How S Ranks Work
  • 2 The Official Data
    • 2.1 Compared to Our Data
    • 2.2 Fun With Data
  • 3 About the VR Missions...
    • 3.1 Lack of Testing
    • 3.2 Cut Content
  • 4 Final Word

As a reminder, AC7 is one of the only games in the franchise that uses a combination of time and score to calculate the player's final Clear Rank. If you take more time, you can still get the S Rank if you destroy more targets. It works like this:

  • Your score from destroying enemies in the mission is your Destruction Score. You see this at the top-left of …

15 Years Ago, There Was a Wiki

Greetings, everyone! August 19, the date of as well as Operation Dragon Breath, was also the date of this wiki's very first edit by its founder, User:Thunderhead, all the way back in 2006. In the 15 years since then, Acepedia has grown tremendously to become the primary destination for Ace Combat lore, game info, mission details, and more. I talked about Acepedia's history in the 10th anniversary blog post, and more information is also available on the wiki's About page.

I say this all the time, but our success is thanks to everyone who has ever contributed to the wiki. We're completely run by Ace Combat fans without any direct support from Bandai Namco. We wouldn't be where we are without every viewer, every commenter, and every editor, as w…

My personal Fleet Destruction routine

Every time I play Mission 11 in Ace Combat 7, I always have a maxed-out EML for efficiency's sake. Usually I stick with the Strike Wyvern (with the glowing skin of course) for its manouverbility, but the F/A-18F and CFA-44 are also good choices because of their other special weapons. Haven't tried the Su-33 yet, might do it some day.

reducing both bases to ashes, there should be a swarm of fighters waiting to be taken down. Resupply and switch to your Air-to-Air special weapons if you want to, your EML should be running low by now.
  1. Shoot down as many planes as you can until the timer runs out. That's what they are for, right?

And there you have it, Wiseman is impressed and Long Caster is amazed. There are definitely more efficiet ways to fini…

Well this is kinda weird

Did you guys notice that the briefing man in mission 11 of ac7 said that he sent the other squadrons on dangerous missions,and only two pilots survived.This is were it gets interesting both trigger and count went on dangerous missions and only trigger and count survived he didn't address the pilots by there names even though they were litterally in the briefing room.Personally I think that's interesting.

Ace Combat 25th Anniversary

June 30, 2020 was the 25th anniversary of the Ace Combat franchise! While Ace Combat has its roots in the two arcade games, Air Combat and Air Combat 22, the franchise officially began on June 30, 1995 with the Japanese release of the first Ace Combat game on the PlayStation.

A few official announcements and a big teaser took place over the past couple of days to commemorate the anniversary. Let's go through them!

Translation by User:TaskForce23

Unfortunately, the has changed the world this year, and a lot of what Project Aces wanted to do was simply impossible, canceled, or postponed in the wake of this global crisis. Other than the LINE stickers and the AC7 update earlier in the year, this is all they could do.

Transcript: The Voyage of Captain Count

Spare 6 Keystone
AKA u/KeystoneGray

The date is 4 September 2019. Captain Matias Torres and his supercarrier submarine, Alicorn, have been hijacked by Count and Wiseman of the Long Range Strategic Strike Group; coincidentially, AWACS Long Caster has suspiciously gone missing. Osean Intelligence believes that Brigadier General Clemens - originally in charge of the operation to capture the Alicorn - has also fled the military to pursue his dreams abroad in the culinary arts.

Count's probationary release from Spare Squadron means that Commander McKinsey of the 444th must take responsibility for Count's AWOL; as such, he has been given one chance to rectify the situation. McKinsey has thus officially taken command of what remains of the LRSSG and …

AC7 DLC Info Dump

Everyone, meet the Alicorn, a nuclear submarine that we will get to know very well in the DLC missions of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. We've gotten quite a lot of nuggets of lore in the trailers we've seen thus far, so here's what we know about what we're getting!

First off, the DLC missions themselves. All three missions take place between "Bunker Buster" and "Cape Rainy Assault" in the main campaign. You can access the DLC missions through the new "SP MISSION" section in the menu.

Mods for Ace Combat 5

Hi, I know there is quite a big modding scene for the newer ace Combat games, especially ace Combat 7. My question is, seeing that floating online there is the ISO of Ace Combat 5 or can be extracted by a CD DVD of the original game (of which i’m A proud owner), would it be possible to mod the game to be able to play with the ADA-01 and its SDBM special weapon after filling the ADF-01 experience bar? I ask this because is since I was a child and saw the article on this very website almost 10 years ago that I would like to play that aircraft and use that weapon. So the question would be, is it possible to create a mod like that? Does it exist already? If yes where could I find it? If not there is somebody capable of creating it? If yes i’m…

Acepedia Update: 30 Days After AC7 -- Uploading, Editing, Citing

Welcome to the first Acepedia Update after the full release of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown on all three platforms! We're over a month after the console releases, and almost three weeks after the Steam release! Early indications are looking really good. AC7's sales figures appear to be far surpassing both AC6 and Assault Horizon, and reviews are fairly consistent and mostly positive: tight gameplay, deep (if at times complicated) story, and incredible visuals.

As you would expect, Acepedia has been hard at work over these last few weeks, gathering as much data and info as possible. Aces At War: A History 2019 having accessible English and Chinese versions in addition to Japanese is an incredible help in this aspect.

S Rank Methods in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

In Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, the Clear Rank for campaign mode's and VR mode's missions are graded by a combination of both Time Bonus and Destruction Score. In other words, players need to be quick and take down a sufficient number of enemy targets to earn the S ranks. This requirement is the same regardless of the mission's difficulty.

When looking at the results after a mission, a few things need to be taken into account:

  • Total time to complete a mission
  • Time Bonus
  • Destruction Score

Let's start with the Destruction Score, which is relatively straightforward. All enemy targets you have destroyed in a mission are summed up in this score. Enemy targets destroyed by allied forces do not count, nor do targets that cannot be destroyed in the miss…

Is the Arsenal Bird from AC7 like the Ark Bird (plotwise) from TUW (AC5)

With Ace Combat 7 on the horizion and with less than 24 hours to release I figured there is no better time to ask this question. Is theArsenal bird basically theArkbird from Ace Combat 5? I got so excited for AC7 that I went out and bought AC5 (I previously did not own it, I figuted it would be well worth the $6 I found it for) in my playthrough of AC5, I encountered the Arkbird (the mission to protect the launch facility was a nightmare) none the less I had to shoot it down. Well I started to think, what if the Arsenalbird is the Arkbird? Here are a few similarities in the two;

-Both made by Ocea

-Both orginally intended for peace (loose for the arsenalbird)

-Both were weponized

-Both will/have been shot down

-Both were aquired by the enemy

Strangereal - How Ace Combat's fictional universe came to be

"Welcome back to Strangereal!" Masato Kanno tweeted from Project Aces' official Twitter account on December 6, 2015, shortly after the newest Ace Combat game's teaser trailer. Fans rejoiced upon the news. After all, the last numbered Ace Combat title before then, Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, released way back in 2007.

Strangereal is the name of the alternate universe where most of the Ace Combat games take place. As brand director Kazutoki Kono has mentioned in interviews, the name "Strangereal" was first coined as "Strange Real World" to refer to the reality within Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies (aka Ace Combat: Distant Thunder in Europe) when the developer was constructing the said game's lore, albeit a grammatically wrong term.

What Ace Combat 7 Can Learn From the Past

This article was previously published at FANDOM on April 5, 2016.

The Ace Combat series is a varied one, with many enjoyable mechanics and some not-as-enjoyable issues. There's still a notable lack of information on the upcoming Ace Combat 7 but its developers have a history of over 15 prior games to improve upon. What can – and should – this next installment learn from the previous games in the series?

  • 1 Fixing Recurring Bugs and Issues
  • 2 Aircraft Variety
  • 3 More Focus on Antagonists
  • 4 More Superweapon Importance

As obvious as it may seem to suggest fixing bugs, some Ace Combat games have had the same consistent, annoying bugs. One of the most popular bugs plaguing all of the games is the AI's ability to fly through the ground. Even Ace Combat Infinity, th…

Using a Fictional World in Ace Combat

This article was previously published at FANDOM on March 13, 2016.

Fans were overjoyed to learn that Ace Combat 7 would be one of many Ace Combat games to take place in a fictional world known as "Strangereal". Strangereal's Earth is completely different from our own; the landmasses, countries, and history are completely unique. Most Ace Combat games that take place in this fictional world are highly reviewed, and fans have been asking for a new game to take place in Strangereal for years.

The most recent releases in the Ace Combat series – Ace Combat: Assault Horizon and Ace Combat Infinity – instead took place on our real Earth. Sure, fictional events took place with fictional characters, but they involved the United States, Russia, Japan, Duba…

Renaming to Belkapedia

Greetings, aces! It is a sad day around the world; just hours ago, Ace Combat Infinity closed its doors after nearly four years of service. We tip our hats to Project Aces and the ACEINF management team within PA for all of their hard work in maintaining the game this long.

But with Infinity gone, our sights are now focused back where they belong: on Strangereal. And to celebrate this occasion, we have decided to stop pretending what this wiki covers. No, we don't care about mission articles, we don't care about the games, and we certainly don't care about many of the characters.

What we have always cared about is Belka. It's always been Belka.

STOVL carrier game

A few days ago I made a comment on the page of th mission Juggernat from Ace Combat 2 talking about the HMS Invinceble contained in this mission and other STOVL Carriers.

For anyone who is interested there is a nice flight simulator for IOS mobile and android called Marina Militare where you can land in vertical mode and take off in vertical or normally with Harrier Plus II and F-35B from the Italian Carrier Cavour, that is the biggest STOVL carrier behind just the America Class.

If you try it let me know what you think.

EDIT: Happy April Fools'! The wiki has been restored to its original color scheme.


Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, aces!

I've recently discovered something: many computer devices are now including features or have programs available to put on a "blue light filter", which reduces blue light from screens at nighttime and prevents eye strain. My laptop, desktop, and now even my phone automatically activate blue light filters when the sun sets every day.

A very popular program for computers is f.lux, which I highly recommend.

This is a new blog series I thought of a few days ago and wanted to try out. A lot happens on this wiki—new information is discovered, articles are standardized, new features are implemented—and I figured having a weekly summary of the prior week's events would be a helpful tool for the community.

This isn't like Blog:Acepedia Updates, which I'll continue to update when we have major developments as they occur. Instead, this is just like a debriefing; everything's happened already, and these posts will sum them up.

Finally, these are just the major changes. Tons of little fixes happen every day, and it would b…

Fandom Page Header Test

Greetings, aces! Fandom, our parent service, has begun testing a new page header layout. Acepedia is part of the test! The goal of the project is to modernize the top section, to make it look neater and give it more accessibility and usefulness.

For more details on the test as well as some previews, check out this blog post on Community Central!

Fandom will be measuring usage statistics, so give it all a try and see how it works out. As you test out the new header, PLEASE leave your feedback here! User:Springteufel and other Fandom staff will be collecting feedback from all participating wikis, so the more feedback, the better!

Here's some comparison screenshots to help you out:

So I Can't Play Infinity Anymore

So, I can't play Infinity anymore. My match rank is C now, so the game literally won't let me play any matches, when the only way to get it back up is to play. First time, the friggin power surged because I'm on a crappy grid, then I got kicked from a match because the connection dropped, because apparently it's my fault their servers are terrible. Next match worked, then the one after that dropped connection again, and it said "HEY, YOU CAN'T PLAY THE GAME ANYMORE BECAUSE YOU LOST CONNECTION TO THE HOST AND THAT'S YOUR FAULT".

So now I actually can't play the game anymore. Its been two days now and I hammer the X button on either the NTDM or Online Co-op with room search and it keeps saying "No room was found". Am I just doomed to never be…

Acepedia Community App

The moment has finally arrived! 10 years of hard work has brought us what I am so proud to announce: Acepedia now has its own Community App for mobile devices and tablets!

  • Google Play Store
  • Apple App Store

The Acepedia app is one of the best ways available to browse the wiki and participate in the community. It features integrated support for the new Discussions platform, and its home screen already features the main games that users will be interested in, including a preliminary category for Ace Combat 7.

If you've browsed Acepedia on a mobile web browser, you should find the experience similar yet much smoother on the app, and using the app bypasses the web browser completely.

There are definitely some edges that can be smoothed out - the Commu…

My Gripes with Infinity (What That Game I Love)

So, I've been playing Infinity for about... uhm... over a year. Since I think April of last year, it says. I love the game to bits. It's one of my favorite games, I play it basically every damn day, it's great, and you should totally get it.


There are some things about the game that piss me off to no end, so I'm going to complain about them here, because I like to complain and annoy everyone with my complaining until my grievances are addressed. Because I have no life and can't find anything positive in anything.

  • 1 1. STORY MODE
  • 2 2. ENEMY AI
  • 3 3. POINTS

Kind of a personal thing rather than an objective thing, but where the hell is…

Hackers in Infinity

So, this has become a huge problem, now. I've called this out before but everyone here said there aren't any. There are.

Naval Team Deathmatch is going on now, and it's now blatantly clear that hackers are around. Missiles do not turn 180 degrees after being shot past you in order to hit you. 5 of the 8 games I've been in this event have had hackers, and of course, when I quit a broken lobby, the game punishes me by saying "hey, you left a game full of hackers! Now you can't play anymore". What a great system in place. The game has zero control over hackers under any circumstances. They just didn't care. They released a notification saying "please stop" to all the hackers and boosters of the game, and that's literally it. Yeah, a whole lot …

Acepedia's 10th Anniversary

Wow... 10 years, everyone. 10 years ago, User:Thunderhead made his first edit on this wiki. That's just absolutely insane; I would venture a guess to say that many wikis on Fandom don't manage to last 10 years. I've only been an administrator here for almost three years, but I am absolutely honored to be able to initiate the celebrations.

This is going to be a long blog post, but I promise it's worth it :D If you really don't want to read through it, there's a table of contents below :P

  • 1 The First Edit
  • 2 A Quick History
  • 3 New Features
  • 4 Thank you!

I went digging through Acepedia's edit history a couple of weeks ago, and as it turns out... Thunderhead's first edit (look at how old that Main Page looks, btw) is not the first recorded edit on Acepedia.

Speculations: Task Force 118

Guys, I had a speculation about Task Force 118's other 8 squadrons. It would be necessary to speculate about it, so here it is:

  • Antares and Varcolas Squadrons: Both squadrons were still active when Martinez Security was hired alongside Arrows Air Defense and Security. It's quite possible both squadrons fought together when the USEA Federation rose and participated in Operation Override – Dubai. Varcolac Squadron possibly wants to outdo Reaper so that they can be aces but is always beaten to it by Reaper. Also possible that Andre Olivieri gave up schematics and blueprints of the GAF–1 to Wehrner and David Enterprises likely because of either the USEA Federation or Ulysses. Is likely a friendly rival of Antares Squadron, much like Ridgeback S…

Ace Combat: Infinite Skies

Since Infinite Skies will be releasing prior to Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, the former will be the first game to release on an , namely the . It will also utilize .

Infinite Skies is designed to be a continuation of the campaign mode in Ace Combat Infinity, which was left on a cliffhanger after its last mission. It will feature the same first 8 missions as Infinity, but after that the rest of the game will be original content.

Continuing where Infinity left off, Reaper, Nagase, and Omega have been…
