VR Mission 02 is the second VR Mode mission in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. The player assumes the role of Mobius 1 as they engage enemy aircraft over a friendly air base at Scofields Plateau, defending the base and AWACS SkyEye.
IUN-PKF Commander: Let's get on with the briefing. 1816th Bomber Squadron is almost here. However, we got a report of what seem to be Free Erusean aircraft approaching them. Air intercept is at the squadron's ETA. Your mission is to ensure our air superiority around the base, and to protect the bombers. As of now, we cannot tell whether they are after the bombers, or this base. Be ready to take on anything thrown at you.

IUN-PKF Commander: A major operation both in the air and on the ground, is not something Free Erusea could manage in previous battles. But our base held in the face of danger. We will make this the turning point of the war. In other words, we're gonna make them regret they couldn't finish us off, here and now. Dismissed.
Earning an S Rank on this mission requires completing the mission in 8 minutes and 30 seconds or less.
Technically, VR Mission 02's S Rank requires earning a combined score and time bonus of 24,190 points or more. The maximum time bonus available is 14,000 for completing the mission in a total of 6 minutes and 30 seconds or less. This includes time spent retrying from the checkpoint. If the player can complete the mission in that amount of time, they only need 10,190 points from destroying targets in the mission itself to earn the S Rank.
However, since all enemy units in this mission are TGTs and must be destroyed by the player, the player will always earn 13,790 points during the mission. Going past the 6-minute 30-second threshold will decrease the time bonus by 30 points every second. At 8 minutes and 30 seconds, the time bonus will have decreased to 10,400 points; adding that to the constant 13,790 in-mission score results in the required 24,190 combined score for the S Rank.
- These enemy units will appear after the player destroys the group of three Su-30M2s.
