The High-Power Air-to-Air Missile (HPAA) is a special air-to-air weapon. It first appeared in Ace Combat Infinity and was later featured in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.

Overview

The HPAA deals nearly twice the damage a normal missile can do to an air target. Just like the SAAM and QAAM, the HPAA can only be fired in salvos of two. An HPAA missile takes the shape of a red version of QAAM the aircraft is compatible with. The brevity code for an HPAA launch is Fox Two, hinting that HPAA is an infrared homing air-to-air missile. HPAA for US aircraft is AIM-9X, R-73 for Russian aircraft, and Rb.98 IRIS-T for the Gripen. In Online Co-Op Missions, the HPAA is used by Titan Squadron's F-14Ds.

Trivia

  • The characteristics of the HPAA are similar to the HVWM that was introduced in Ace Combat: Joint Assault : High firepower, shorter range, and slow reload compared to other air-to-air missiles.
