Fragile Cargo is the 7th mission in the international version of Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere.
At 18:30 hours, a terrorist communique alerted UPEO command to the launch of an unmanned airship carrying bio weapons over Axel Bay's coastal industrial region. The ship's low altitude is on a collision course with buildings. Destruction of the ship will release its deadly payload. Destroy any buildings in its path for a safe water landing.
The mission's primary objective is to prevent the airship from crashing by destroying any chimneys and bridges that are in the way. The amount of targets is random on every playthrough. After the airship crashes in the water, the next objective is to destroy the Hydrofoil that spawns before it leaves the map.
Obtaining an A-Rank requires the hydrofoil within 30 seconds of its appearance.
Our investigations revealed that the airship's payload was a highly infectious and lethal bioweapon. You are commended for preventing the airship from releasing its deadly cargo and preventing civilian casualties in the area. The identity of the escort aircraft UI-4054 "Aurora" is currently under investigation.
