Claustrophobia is the 27th mission in the Japanese version of Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere. It is the seventh mission in the General Resource (I) arc, and is played if the player saves Keith in Stratosphere.


We've picked up intel on a Neucom Missile Base. Find it and destroy it! You're searching in a foggy canyon for this base, so some difficulty is expected. Take all necessary precautions on this mission.


The player's main objective is to destroy all target bases and guns. There are numerous SAMs, guns, fighters, and helicopters protecting the bases.

If the timer passes 5:59, a missile will launch and the player's new objective is to shoot it down before it leaves the map.

Obtaining an A-Rank requires destroying 30+ enemies in less than 6 minutes. If any target is not destroyed in 6 minutes, the player will earn a Mission Over and a D-Rank. [1]


Neucom's missile base was successfully destroyed. You carried out this difficult operation well.


According to Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere Direct Audio, Defiled was meant to be played in this mission; however, Mind Flow is played instead. This issue is fixed in the export version.
