The following is a transcript of VR Mission 01, the first VR Mode mission in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. Also included is a transcript of the prologue dialogue.

Prologue

IUN-PKF Commander: Glad you're back with us, Mobius 1. Let's get to it. Free Erusea rebel forces have started making noise again. When the Circum-Pacific War ended, the world's military forces were turned on their heads, giving the rebels access to both plenty of weapons and funding. Over the past few years, they've gone from an unsophisticated terrorist group to an increasing global threat. Usea is still rebuilding under the IUN. We cannot allow war to break out again. That's why I put in the request to have you assigned to the newly-established IUN PKF (International Union Peacekeeping Force). That look in your eyes tells me you haven't lost it. That's what I hoped. Free Erusea has commenced with activities all around the continent. They cannot be allowed to expand their forces. That's where you come in, Mobius 1.

Briefing

IUN-PKF Commander: Let's begin the briefing. The Peyton Peninsula [sic] radar site to the northwest of us here at Fort Grays has picked up a number of unidentified aircraft. They've ignored all warnings from the IUN PKF and are making their way towards our base. As the IUN has air traffic control over all of Usea, we're almost certain the crafts belong to the Free Eruseans. You guys will scramble immediately, visually identify the aircraft, and then use your radios to order them to land. If attacked, you have permission to engage them in combat. Waste no time destroying them.

Landing

Carrier

  • Aircraft Carrier Controller: This is the Albatross control tower.
  • Aircraft Carrier Controller: AWACS "Sky Eye," we'll take it from here.

Debriefing

IUN-PKF Commander: Thanks to your efforts, the unidentified aircraft was taken down. You've helped us make it clear that it belonged to Free Erusea. I have some guys looking into the enemy's motivations. I'm afraid it's looking like things could get pretty ugly. For now, Mobius looks to have delayed the enemy's plans. We need a closer eye on the enemy's movements, and you should be ready to move out at any moment.
