X-02S Strike Wyvern

Successfully complete Campaign mode on the Normal or higher difficulty to unlock the X-02S Strike Wyvern under the Aircraft Tree. To purchase it, you need 2,000,000 MRP and to have unlocked either the YF-23 Black Widow II, F-22A Raptor, or Su-57. Its weapons cost 200,000 MRP each, for a grand total of 2,400,000 MRP.

Bonus skins in Campaign mode

Successfully complete the game on any difficulty to unlock extra skins in Campaign mode.

Easy MRP

Multiplayer is the quickest way to earn MRP. Even if you are the worst player in a game, you will still earn approximately 70k per completion. It only takes a few minutes, and you do not even need to be good at the game.

If you do not like playing multiplayer to earn MRP, you can replay campaign missions in Free Play mode. Missions that give a lot of MRP include the Fleet Destruction and Farbanti missions. Mission 19 is long, but gives a lot of MRP for completing it. It is recommended to proceed through the central Aircraft Tree path and unlock the F22 Raptor as early as possible. The F22 Raptor is the best all-around fighter in the game, with incredibly useful special weapons you can equip to make all missions much easier. Do not bother unlocking other aircraft until you get the F22 Raptor.

Easy "S" ranks

The "S" rank is the best rank you can earn in any mission. Earn an "S" rank on Normal or Hard missions to unlock skins. Every mission is different, but generally you can get an "S" rank by completing the following tasks:

1. Unlock the F22 Raptor, which is available under the central Aircraft Tree unlock path. The F22 Raptor is the best all-around fighter in the game, with incredibly useful special weapons you can equip to make all missions much easier. Note: The top aircraft in the game, the experimental Wyvern, is powerful but not nearly as useful for completing missions quickly and efficiently as the F22 Raptor. SDBs make many missions trivial. The F22 also can unlock multi-air and multi-ground missiles that can destroy everything in the sky very quickly.

2. Complete objectives quickly, and inflict as much damage as possible before the timer goes down. You are can use as many missiles and special weapons as desired. Also, try not taking damage to improve your ranking.

3. To easily earn more points, reload checkpoints to refill your special munitions. There is no penalty for reloading. Also, equip parts to enhance the capabilities of your munitions. Better lock-on, faster missiles, and more damage are very important. Use improved weapons parts once you unlock the F22.

All named aircraft

Successfully complete the indicated task on the listed mission to spawn the corresponding ace (named aircraft). You must be replaying a mission already completed to get the ace (named aircraft) to spawn. Name aircraft are much more difficult to defeat than normal aircraft. Defeat all 24 named aircraft to unlock the special skin for the X-02S Strike Wyvern and the "Bird Of Prey" achievement.
