"Fight a good fight, troops. You're our only hope."
― Khesed Command

"Vitoze Aerial Defense"[b] is the second campaign mission in Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation. The player must defend Vitoze from Estovakian bombers.


A large-scale formation of Estovakian bombers is heading towards Vitoze -- a city here on the island of Khesed. The enemy's plotting to storm Campagna airport, where our military is stationed, to stamp us out and put an end to this thing. Enemy bombers are approaching Vitoze from the north. Our advance team estimates they'll be above the city in about 15 minutes. Air units are to cooperate with our radar facilities and resume operations. An enemy takeover of Vitoze would mean the ultimate destruction of our country Emmeria -- and of our Emmerian people. Intercept them at once!


The player's objective is to shoot down all enemy bombers. This is the first mission in which the player will receive ESM (Electronic Support Measure); When a player is in range of ESM, the player will have the homing capabilities and firing rate of their missiles enhanced. However, the radar facilities providing ESM can be destroyed by the enemy. In addition, the bombers are protected by several fighter squadrons. The destruction of all bombers will end the mission.

The enemy bombers have been intercepted. Enemy aircraft around the Khesed perimeter have been significantly weakened. Our forces have taken advantage of this opportunity to arrange a swift counterattack. We expect the best from you.
