Midnight Assassin is mission #6A of Ace Combat 2. It is the game's first night-time mission. Its "B" variant is "Bear Tracks".

Unified Command's past operations have led the enemy forces in the north-eastern region of Usea to retreat. Satellite monitoring of the situation revealed one particular aircraft formation fleeing through the Meriton region, covered by E-767 craft providing cover through radar jamming. The player's mission is to intercept the escaping unit and destroy the AWACS units and their escorts.


Our successive attacks have been effective at pushing the enemy’s front line, and they are now beginning to retreat. Just a while ago, reconnaissance caught sight of what seemed to be a fleeing unit. Take off immediately, and pin them down.

Target: The enemy E-767 early-vigilante plane unit

This is our first nighttime take-off. Unfortunately, the enemy is equipped with a jamming unit, so we expect radar effectiveness to be reduced. Don’t be taken by surprise, and be sure to watch your back!
