This mission is not considered part of Strangereal canon, and therefore has no corresponding operation page. For the canon variant of this mission, see In Pursuit I.

In Pursuit II is mission 11B in the campaign of Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception. The player can access this mission if they allow the Skylla Unit to advance on Mount Nevera and then advances on Mount Nevera themselves. The player must destroy the Nevera Jammer's power facilities and jamming towers while avoiding the Skylla Unit.

Objectives

Prior to the mission, the player will perform an in-flight refueling sequence.

The player is first tasked with disabling the Nevera Jammer's Aegis defense system. If the player gets within range of the defense system, they will be quickly shot down. Instead, the player must locate and destroy the four power facilities providing power to the defense system. There are also six decoy facilities; the player must destroy the four real facilities, marked by a white light. If the player destroys a correct facility, the Multi-Purpose Gauge will lower by 25% and Eugene Solano will confirm the power loss. The player's radar will be intermittent, depending on the difficulty and the number of correct power facilities destroyed:[1]

Correct power
facilities
destroyed
Radar display time
(Seconds visible/invisible)
Easy Normal Hard Ace
None 10/75 8/86 6/107 6/123
1 10/35 8/46 6/67 6/87
2 10/25 8/36 6/62 6/82
3 10/15 8/26 6/57 6/77
4 10/5 8/16 6/52 6/72

Power lines are strewn throughout the area, linking the locations of the power facilities. The player should use a combination of their radar (when it's visible) and these power lines to locate the facilities. However, the Skylla Unit will attempt to take down the power lines and fire on the player from the ground. Enemy air units will also chase the player.

Once the player destroys all four power facilities, the Aegis defense system will deactivate and the player can attack the Nevera Jammer directly. The mission is accomplished when all six jammers (marked as TGT) are destroyed.
