  • Mobius 1 dogfight

    In the Gauntlet mission, defeat the fourth squadron, Espada, in less than a minute for there to be an extra aircraft in the next fight, Mobius 1. Mobius will immediatly shoot down all the other aircraft with a barrage of missiles (unless you manage to destroy them first). You will then have a one-on-one dogfight with Mobius. He will fire a barrage of missiles in your direction from any angle. Note: This only works on the Ace difficulty setting.

  • Fly as Mobius 1, Yellow 13, or Razgriz

    The soldier paint scheme for the F/A-22A Raptor is Mobius 1's from Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies, including the I.S.A.F Ribbon insignia on the tail. The mercenary scheme for the Su-37 Terminator is Yellow 13's colors from Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies. It even changes the aircraft number from 032 to 013. The soldier scheme for the F-14D Super Tomcat is Razgriz's from Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, also including an insignia change to match.

  • Destroying the XB-O

    To destroy the XB-O (super bomber) faster, use a plane that can support a FAEB (fuel-air explosive bomb) such as the Su-37 Terminator. Fly close over the XB-O, fire the FAEB, and pull up. Repeat this until you must destroy the Espadas. Then, fire two missiles into the front of the XB-O. Note: You cannot destroy the super ship until you destroy the Espadas.

  • Wolfgang Buchner quote

    Get all "S" ranks on the Ace difficulty setting to get a quote from "Wolfgang Buchner", also known as "Huckebein the Raven", "Pops", and "Special Forces Second Lieutenant Peter N. Beagle." This quote is as follows:

      "Eclipsing power is, at times, not only the instrument of demons, but also of gods."
      --Wolfgang Buchner--

  • Ace Combat 5 reference

    When you return to the round table for the second time, run down every allied fighter on the Mercenary Path. You will eventually find a fighter named "hrtbrk1" (Jack Bartlett), from Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War.
