- "This is Dagger 3, coordinates confirmed. Moving to attack."
- ― Dagger 3, "Shockwave"
Dagger 3 is the callsign of an A-10A Thunderbolt II pilot of the United States Air Force. He makes a minor appearance in Shockwave, the opening level of Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, where he destroys a bridge occupied by SRN soldiers. He later re-appears towards the end of the level, where the pilot bombs a large building where many rebels with rocket launchers are holed up. In the mission Hurricane, Dagger 3 is heard over the radio. He along with the rest of Dagger Squadron engage Markov and Illich only to be shot down. It is uncertain if this is the same person.
- In Hurricane, Dagger Squadron flies F-15Es instead.
