- "Warwolf, we need all the transports. if one goes down, then our wounded will die as well."
- ― Beyli Tower
Siege is the ninth mission in Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.
Transport flight "Sova" is preparing to provide Beyli Base with doctors and medicine for their wounded, but are unable to land due to air and ground assaults on the base. Colonel Bishop and Guts send the rest of Warwolf back to refuel, while Molot provides Sova with cover. Several ground units and Sukhoi aircraft have already breached the base perimeter and must be destroyed immediately. After dealing with them, Warwolf is forced to land at the base in order to refuel. The NRF has already launched a second wave of attacks by the time they take off, and the transport planes must be protected from the enemy fighters. The mission is complete when the final transport touches down or the final wave of ground forces has been eliminated.
- Due to the speed at which Sova 1 is attacked after the player takes off, the mission is not failed if it is shot down. However, getting Sova 1 to land safely results in earning the achievement Smooth Flight.
