Self Awareness is the 47th mission of the Japanese version of Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere. It is the fourth and final mission along the Ouroboros (II) story arc.


"Though the Night Raven had escaped inside Geofront, perhaps seeing the odds against it, it emerged in Port Edwards, where Neucom's head office is located. The Player and Cynthia followed the Night Raven to the surface too, but because of the difference in maneuverability, they could not attack it enough times to cause critical damage."

The mission's primary target is the X-49 Night Raven. However, it is too fast to hit. 30 seconds after the mission begins, a cutscene will play detailing Port Edwards' Aeon generators' effects on the Night Raven's mobility, instructing the player to destroy them.

Mission Update 1[]

Once the cutscene ends, the Aeon generators become the primary targets. The player must destroy them all while evading anti-aircraft and surface-to-air missile fire and being hunted by the Night Raven.

Mission Update 2[]

Once all Aeon generators are destroyed, the Night Raven once again becomes the mission's primary target. Shooting it down ends the mission.
