- "A faithful recreation of the Ace Combat 2 aircraft performance design. Outstanding stability and lack of recoil provide for a truly unique sense of flight. Although it boasts improved speed performance, this aircraft lacks SP weapons, which were not introduced until after Ace Combat 2. Experience what it was like to fly back in the day!"
- ― Xbox Marketplace description.
This particular variant has been designed with speed attributes in mind. Maximum airspeed and maneuverability are slightly increased, while stability is given a substantial boost and armor is strengthened. However, these advantages come at the cost of poorer air-to-air and air-to-ground combat capabilities.
The TYPE ACE2 Su-33's weapons arsenal is given a general redesign. The basic missile capacity is reduced from 160 to 120. In order to provide a truly "old fashoined" gameplay experience, the aircraft is restricted from using any special weapons.
