In preparation for the upcoming liberation of [[Directus]], [[Ustio]]'s capital, the Allied Forces carry out an operation to free the nearby mountain town of [[Solis Ortus]] from [[Belka]]n control. The attack sees the [[Galm Team]] escorting [[C-130]] transports carrying the Osean [[122nd Airborne Division]], who are tasked with paradropping into the town.

Galm disables the anti-air defenses surrounding Solis Ortus and escort the transports into local airspace, allowing the paratroopers to drop into the town. After the troops are on the ground, they aid the C-130s as they leave the mission airspace, covering them from airborne Belkan reinforcements.

Flicker of Hope is the fifth mission of Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War.

Briefing

The mountain town of Solis Ortus is located just outside Ustio's capital, Directus. The Allied Forces will deploy airborne troops, comprised primarily of Osea's 101st Airborne Division, over Solis Ortus, in a surprise air and ground attack on the Belkan forces. This operation will play a critical role in Ustio's liberation. Your mission is to provide support for the airborne troops. Destroy Belka's surface-to-air defence network and all interceptor aircraft, securing a safe drop zone for the airborne troops. Be aware of civilians still inside Solis Ortus. Your actions will determine their fate. Good luck.

Objectives

The mission's objective is to destroy all enemy anti-air defenses that are marked TGT. Once several TGTs are destroyed, enemy fighters appear as TGTs; they must be destroyed along with any remaining ground TGTs.

The mission is completed when all TGTs are destroyed.

Debriefing

Operation Varsity succeeded. Ground troops are now en route to Solis Ortus. It won't be long now before Ustio is liberated.

Trivia

  • The opening briefing mistakenly states that the paratrooper detachment involved in the mission is the "101st Airborne Division". In modern history, the 101st Airborne was a paratrooper division of the United States Army involved in various major operations in World War II, being another link between the Belkan War and WWII.
  • Shortly after the mission begins, as the commander of the 122nd says the line "use that anger to get fired up and take 'em out", wind begins audibly blowing as their transport's cargo door opens. This is one of the only gameplay lines to include sound effects that are not dialogue.
