Spotlight - Alpha is the ninth mission of Ace Combat: Joint Assault.
Burford: The Valahia have declared an attack on London, which explains the recent relocation of their aerial base. Our progress to London has been stalled due to Valahian attacks across Europe. I know you might not agree with this, but just concentrate on the mission we've been assigned. We've been ordered to destroy the enemy's large-scale jamming station, Mora. Mora is a Turkish military facility in the mountains that have been occupied and converted by Valahia. Its jamming signals affect airspace over Anatolia, the Black Sea and the Dardanelles. This is severely limiting eastern European marine routes. The jamming must be stopped. Antares Squadron is to attack the facility's generator stations found along the channel. The Valahia are powering their facilities through multiple generators. First, we attack the source. From among the numerous facilities in the area, find those generators and destroy them all. Be alert, the channel will be under periodic long-range attack from the mountain. Keep in constant radio contact to check the situation throughout this operation. Prepare to launch, Antares Squadron.
Achieve 7,500 or more points.

Burford: The mission was a success. Jamming signals in the Anatolia area have been lifted. I know just how difficult this mission was, but you performed excellently. Well done. As I am sure you are aware, London and other European cities are now all terrified of a Valahia attack. It is up to us to put an end to this nightmare. We will be counting on you Antares Squadron.
- This mission is similar to "In Pursuit I" from Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception in which player must destroy a number of power plants powering a facility, except the jamming effect is replaced with periodic long-range attack similar to the Hi-TASM. Moreover, destroying a decoy power plant will spawn a RPG launcher nearby.
