    I. Overview/General Information
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The purpose of this guide is to guide gamers through the Xbox version of
Airforce Delta Storm. This includes mission walkthroughs, strategies, and
detailed information about every plane in the game. Much of the information
about the aircraft in this game has been taken from my previous "Aircraft
Guide," and then expanded upon.

    I do not own, nor have I ever owned, the Japanese version of this game. So,
I do not feel responsible for listing the planes that appear exclusively in
that game.

    Here is some general information:

    II. Recent Updates
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Wed, Jul 22 2009: Version FINAL
                  Updated contact info


Wed, Aug. 27:  Version 0.9
                 I finished the walkthrough section, as far as I can
                 tell. The only section that needs to be finished is
                 the aircraft locations list.


Thu, Aug. 21:  Version 0.75
                 I realized that the guide was not in the correct
                 format. I'm hoping it works this time...


Tue, Aug. 19:  Version 0.5
                 Did a lot of work on the guide in the past week. Found
                 many, but not all, of the aircraft in the game.
                 Mission walkthroughs almost complete, with a few
                 missing. Also added a Tips section, in case anyone has
                 any suggestions. Overall, I still have a lot of things
                 I want to complete...enough to last me for a little
                 while longer.


Sat, Aug. 9:     I have started this FAQ/Walkthrough. Lots of
                 information to collect, but I'm doing my best to get
                 as much as I can into the guide.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    III. Quick Code
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    I made this section to explain the feature that allows for easier access on
this page. I think it is a great way to find certain things much more
easily...rather than looking tirelessly through the document.

    For instance, say you want to find a specific plane, but don't know where
to look, press Ctrl + F, and input the name of the plane you're looking for. It
will search the document and find the word. You will most likely find the name
of the plane in different sections, so hit "Find Next" to keep looking.

    I previously had a code for every plane, but it became too crowded, so
that's why you won't find any actual "codes" to type in anywhere. Just input
the name of the plane for faster, easier results.

    I hope this will help you as you navigate the site.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    IV. Controls
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here are the three control schemes you can choose: Novice, Expert, and Ace.
If you wish, you can further customize them from the controller menu.

    If you're new to the game, I recommend using the Novice Controls. They
don't give you as much freedom, but are easy to get used to if you're just
picking up the game and playing.



Novice Controls:

Y Button: Fire Machine Gun
B Button: Fire Missiles
A Button: Switch Targets (Forwards)
X Button: Switch Targets (Backwards)
Left Trigger: Decrease Speed
Right Trigger: Increase Speed
Left Thumbstick: Aircraft Control
D-Pad Up: Wide Area Map Display On/Off
D-Pad Down: Switch Perspectives




Expert Controls:

Y Button: Fire Machine Gun
B Button: Launch Missiles
A Button: Decrease Speed
X Button: Increase Speed
Left Trigger: Left Horizontal Movement (Left Rudder)
Right Trigger: Right Horizontal Movement (Right Rudder)
Left Thumbstick: Aircraft Control
D-Pad Up: Wide Area Map Display On/Off
D-Pad Down: Switch Perspectives
White Button: Switch Targets (Backwards)
Black Button: Switch Targets (Forwards)



Ace Controls:

Y Button: Fire Machine Gun
B Button: Launch Missiles
A Button: Decrease Speed
X Button: Increase Speed
Left Trigger: Left Horizontal Movement (Left Rudder)
Right Trigger: Right Horizontal Movement (Right Rudder)
Left Thumbstick: Aircraft Control
D-Pad Up: Wide Area Map Display On/Off
D-Pad Down: Switch Perspectives
White Button: Switch Targets (Backwards)
Black Button: Switch Targets (Forwards)
BACK Button: Air Brake

In Ace controls, the engine output will not change when the Increase Speed or
Decrease Speed buttons are released.


---


My control settings are based on the Ace Controls, but with a minor changes. I
just switch the X and A button controls.

If you experiment with it, you can find some really great control schemes. I
once had it on Novice controls with the two triggers as my weapon controls. But
after switching to Expert, and ultimately Ace, I needed to assign the triggers
for the rudder.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    V. Interface/Game Screen
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    Throughout the game, there are a lot of symbols used to represent many
different things. Learning what these stand for and how to make use of them
will help you greatly.

    The following drawing is of the game screen as shown through the Cockpit
view. Letters in parentheses correspond to captions below the drawing.

+++++++++
GUNSIGHTS
+++++++++


These appear when an enemy that is locked-on comes within a certain distance.
Center the enemy within the gunsight to aim your machine guns.
   - The circular object is the sight. The closer to the center of the
     gunsight the enemy is, the better the chances of a perfect shot.
   - The line stretching from the gunsight is for round tracking. It
     indicates the direction machine gun rounds will be fired in.




++++++++++++
RADAR SCREEN
++++++++++++


    Your radar is one of the most important tools in your possession.
    Make sure you know how to use it.

   o Targets necessary for mission completion appear as small red dots.
   o Other enemies appear as yellow dots.
   o Blue dots are allies.
   o Green dots are objects that must not be destroyed.
   o Triangular-shaped objects are enemy planes.
   o Target designators show where the nearest objective is located. A
     red arrow directs towards the nearest non-aircraft target. An
     orange arrow directs towards the nearest aircraft target. Blue
     arrows direct toward allies.
   o The radar has three modes: Long range, medium range, and short
     range. As you near a target, the radar automatically adjusts to a
     shorter range. As you move away, it zooms out.
   o Flashing white dots indicate missiles.
   o Enemies flashing on your radar are either selected or locked-on.



++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WARNINGS AND STATUS MESSAGES
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Caution: Caution.
Pull Down: Pull the aircraft's nose down
Pull Up: Pull the aircraft's nose up.
Stall: Your aircraft has stalled.
Mssl Alert: A missile is incoming.
Out of Mission Area: You are about to leave the mission area.
Bingo!: Direct Hit!
Shot Down: You have shot the enemy plane down.

Missions result in failure for the following reasons:

-Your damage gauge reaches 0.
-Your aircraft falls to the ground or sea, or collides with something.
-You leave the area of operation.
-The time limit expires.
-Mission-related circumstances (ex: bombers manage to destroy an oil tanker)



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    VI. Tips/Strategies
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    Here is the section where I have gathered some basic tips that you may want
to look over before reading this walkthrough. I'll accept any adequate
suggestions that you may have, so feel free to send any that are not already
listed.




- When in a mission, save time and weapons by only eliminating the enemies that
appear RED on the map and ORANGE on the main screen (HUD). These are the main
objectives, so you need not waste your time on other enemies. Unnecessary kills
are YELLOW on the radar and GREEN on the HUD. You are more than welcome to
destroy anything and everything you see, but it's just a heads-up so you know
what to expect and what the colors mean. Use this knowledge to your advantage.



- If you're trying to chase a plane on the map screen but just can't seem to
catch up to it, try using a jet with a higher range (Example: 4 as opposed to
3). This will increase your chances of catching up to it because you will
notice that the enemy plane will pause more often allowing you to approach it.



- It's easy to just go through this game from base to base, without ever
stopping to complete more objectives. But, by doing this, you'll miss out on a
lot of noteworthy fighter jets. So, after you think you can just pass on to the
next airbase, try going back to your previous base and looking to see if any
more objectives have been posted. After you complete an objective, go back once
again to see the planes that you've earned. By doing this, you'll be able to
get the more prized planes such as the XF-0002 or the XQ/U-2Bee Fatty.



- When navigating the map screen, you will most likely have to cross through
many enemy controlled territories called "Ranges." These can be quite annoying
after a while, but their completion is necessary to pass through. There are two
different types of ranges on the map screen. One is a large circle, and the
other is a small circle. Small circles mean that once you complete the range,
it will remain under allied control (blue), so you won't have to complete it
again. Large circles, however, display a number after you complete the range.
When this number runs out, it will once again be enemy-controlled territory
(orange).



- Money is an essential part of this game. You may find yourself short on many
occasions, but it doesn't take long to earn it back. The easiest way to gain
money is to complete ranges. Even if you have already beaten them, you can
revisit them at any time in order to take out the enemies, giving you more
money. One of the best ways to get more money during a mission/range is to
shoot an enemy plane down using Guns instead of Missiles. You will receive
DOUBLE the amount of money that you normally would from destroying them, but it
can be tricky and cost you some valuable time. Since planes go down with two
missiles, you can shoot one missile at the enemy, weakening it, and then finish
it off with guns. This will make it easier and quicker to take it down.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    VII. Enemies
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Fighters:

Thoughout the game, you will face a wide variety of United Forces fighters.
Each of them share very similar qualities, however. For instance, all fighters
can be destroyed with two missiles, or a good amount of gunfire. They can be
difficult to hit with gunfire, so you'll have to develop a strategy to use
against them. Also, you'll notice that even though you may be locked on, it
doesn't necessarily mean that the missile will hit them. You'll have to lead
the target sometimes and figure out where they'll be so the missile will have a
better chance of impact. Avoiding missiles fired from fighters is usually
fairly simple. Just roll out of the way, or do any kind of aerobatic move that
you can think of to try to lose it. The missiles aren't heat-seeking, so once
they go by you, they won't turn around and come back.



Turrets/AAA guns:
___________

GUN POD
PAC-3
ZSU-23 AAA
ATALAYA
TRUCK
___________

Easiest ground object to destroy. Some are placed on walls or towers, but all
turrets function the same--they use gunfire and sometimes missiles to try to
hit you. Gunfire is easy enough to avoid by rolling or strafing, but missiles
can sometimes be a problem if you're not careful. If they do have missiles
(PAC-3's) then try to be going as fast as possible, and coming at them at a
downward angle from above. Once you fire a missile at it, quickly bring the
nose up and roll, and their missile should be long gone.



Tanks:
_____________

M2A2 IRV
T-72 MBT
LEOPARD2 MBT
M48 MBT
M1 MBT
_____________

Fairly slow and easy to avoid, you can easily take them out with 1 missile or a
few bullets. In order to fire the bullets, you'll have to get in pretty close,
so pay attention to your altimeter (altitude meter) so you don't become a
kamikaze in the process.

Enemy ships can be a pain to take out if you don't know what you're doing. But,
that's why I'm here. For many ships, you may notice that there are more than
one target to aim at. Luckily, you only have to fire at one spot before it's
sunk. Now this only works for ships that are primary targets. When you are
approaching, you will see the targets appear on the ship. Cycle through your
available targets until you highlight the orange target. The ship will most
likely fire missiles at you, but try to avoid them by rolling or changing
pitch. Once you're in range, shoot a missile at your target, and the ship is
toast. Some ships, more noteably near the end of the game, have a huge amount
of targets. Just be patient and find the orange target to destroy it.



Helicopters:
_______

AH-64D
MIL-24
_______

Pretty rare to find in this game, these are sometimes difficult to destroy.
They can unleash a barrage of missiles, so take caution. Destroying them can
sometimes take 3 missiles, so you can either go slowly and destroy them with
guns or make more than one fly-by at a high speed to better avoid the missiles.



Bombers:
________

B-1B
B-2
TU-160
B-52H
A-13
________

Slow-moving, extremely easy targets. With no defenses except possibly a few
fighter escorts in the area, they are the easiest aircraft to take down. Fire a
missile, and then finish off with guns so you'll get the extra money for it.

    IX. Aircraft Locations

    Here is the near-complete list of airplanes in the game. I have tried to
find the location
of every single one, but I am not 100% sure about my results. The reasoning for
this is that I may have missed a few missions, which could possibly cause my
results to be inaccurate. If you have a question, feel free to e-mail me. My

The remaining airplanes are listed below. If you know the location to them,
please let me know.

2.  A-4V Skyhawk Oval
3.  AV-8B Harrier II
9.  F-14G Hellcat
11. F-15E Strike Eagle
12. F-15S/MT Active
18. F/A-18S AiraCobra II
22. XF-23CR Blackhollow

28. XF-27 Pleiadus
45. Yak-141 Freestyle
52. SeaHarrier
58. Super Rafale
66. ##10#
67. IDF##


I'm not exactly sure why I couldn't find these planes. I searched the maps up
and down for secret missions to no avail.

But what confuses me is that I received the F-15E Strike Eagle the first time I
played through
the game, but yet during the most recent time playing through (which was much
more thorough), I didn't receive it.

I'm going through yet again to find the missing planes...wish me luck.




-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    X. Walkthrough
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    This is the walkthrough section of the guide. I am not yet finished, but
expect more to come soon. I will provide the quickest, easiest way to finish
each mission, as well as other pertinent information, such as planes earned,
what to buy or not buy, etc. There are certainly more ways than one to complete
each mission, but I'll try to explain it in the methods I use most.

    Whenever a new plane is introduced, I use a chart to show the stats of the
plane as closely as possible to the game's stats. Since each statistic is based
on a 4-point scale, and each point is split into quarters, there are 16
possibilites for each of them (0.25/4, 0.5/4, 0.75/4, 1/4, 1.25/4, 1.5/4, etc.)
So basically I tried to match them with each individual meter in the game as
best I could.

    Throughout the game, you'll encounter many "Ranges" labeled by a small or
large circle. See the above section labeled Game Tips/Hints for more
information.

    There are also "hidden" missions scattered throughout the maps. Finding
them requires some searching (I haven't found all of them yet) but more planes
become available for purchase after completing them.

    One more thing...when you're in a mission, you are only obligated to
destroy primary objectives. Once again, check the Tips section for a better
understanding of this if you aren't yet sure.

    Well, here we go....

                     Campaign 1: Alexxy Peninsula

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


Prologue:

    At the end of the 10th century, the analysis of the human genome was
completed, leading to great advances for humankind, including the ability to
cure even the most severe diseases. Life spans lengthened, and for a brief time
the Earth was like the Garden of Eden.

    However, the exploding population soon depleted the world's resources, and
serious food shortages began appearing. In one country where shortages of food
and fuel caused mass starvation, a coup d'etat occurs. The new revolutionary
government declares the birth of the "United Front," an organization dedicated
to the equal division of all the earth's resources. The ideology of sharing all
humankind's resources was supported by countried who lacked resources, and
nearly all of these countries declared their allegiance to the cause.

    The United Front gathered an army that came to be known as the "United
Forces." Initially it made great advances, but then the countries possessing
abundant resources formed another Alliance to protect themselves. Soon, all
countries were swept up into the conflict, and the world became polarized
between those who possessed material resources and those who were facing
starvation. It was not long before the war of words turned into one of bombs
and missiles.

    Now, in the year 20X1 (two-thousand and some), on the Alexxy Peninsula, the
struggle between the two sides has taken a new turn...

    If this is your first time through, you'll be immediately thrown into the
first mission. If not, you'll begin at Agakles Airbase and you'll have to make
your way to the mission via the map screen. If you have no idea what I'm
talking about...don't worry. Either way, you'll end up back at the airbase
after this mission's done.

Briefing:

    We have received a warning from the Lodey Coast Guard squadron. United
Forces landing troops are converging and about to attempt a landing.
    You must intercept and destroy the landing party. Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    Here's your first mission. Watch the opening video to become familiar with
the atmosphere. Once it's over, you begin the mission. You're flying the A-7, a
mediocre jet that you'll soon want to put aside. But for now, it's all you
have, so you'll have to make use of it.

Here are the A-7's stats:

Range: 1


    Begin by heading forward and taking out the enemy jet that shows up as red
on the radar. You can also go for the other planes, but it just wastes time.
You may notice that the missiles aren't exactly the best at tracking enemy
fighters, so you have to get used to them first. Their ability to turn isn't
very good, so you have to make sure that when you fire it, it is going in the
direction that the enemy will be when he's moving. For instance, if the enemy
is moving to the side, you have to lead the missile in front of it so it will
meet up with the plane as it moves. Otherwise, the missiles in this game aren't
bad at all for taking out ground targets. They're known as "fire-and-forget"
missiles, so once you lock-on and shoot, you don't have to maintain that lock
until it hits; you can turn away and head for a new target.

    Anyway, after the fighter is destroyed, head toward the shoreline. If you
need help navigating, take a look at your radar. See the red arrow on the
outside of the radar? Follow that and you'll be heading in the right direction.

    Once you've reached the coastline, be on the lookout for enemy ships.
Target their weakpoints (orange targets) to destroy them with one missile.
Also, destroy any landing craft that you see. As long as you keep your eye on
the radar, you should know roughly where the enemies are so you can locate them
easily. Once you destroy all of the primary targets, the mission is complete.

---

    Now that you're at an airbase, you can choose to buy new planes, save your
game, receive orders for a new mission, etc. Once you complete a new mission,
head back to the airbase and look for new missions to take. If you think you're
missing out on a mission or two, check the Mission List section above.

    Likewise, if you're having trouble finding a specific jet, consult the
Aircraft Locations section.

    The reason I don't recommend either jet is because they are poor in
comparison to other planes. Even the A-7. If you're looking to have a large
collection of planes, then go ahead and buy them. But if you want to save money
for something better, you'll thank me for not buying them.

    Now, head to the briefings screen and select "The Battle of Castalia Sea."
Take-off using the A-7 and head to the east. Enter the range (orange circle)
and complete it by destroying any primary targets. After completion, proceed to
the ship icon to the east.






*********************************************************************
*********************The Battle of Castalia Sea**********************
*********************************************************************



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    There has been a report from some fishing boats in the area. It seems there
is an unidentified fleet converging on the Castalia Sea.
Contact has since been lost with the boats, leading us to believe it is a
United Forces fleet.
    You must find the fleet and annihilate it. Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    This mission takes place entirely over the sea, so you're gonna have to
take out a lot of ships. But it's not too difficult.
    Head forward, past the allied ships (they're friendly, so don't fire).
Continue ahead until you meet up with the fighter escorts. Destroy the primary
fighter and proceed to sea level to go after the ships. Taking them on can be
difficult at first, but with practice, you should be able to take them out with
ease if you can avoid the missiles and take out their orange targets. It's not
too hard to avoid the missiles if you quickly fire, raise the nose, and roll to
the side (preferrably to the left...the missiles seem to track you easier when
you go to the right) Just follow your radar and your map (D-Pad Up) and you
shouldn't have too much of a problem. Once the ships have been neutralized, you
have accomplished your mission.

The reason you should buy it is because of the fact that it
can take a huge beating before it goes down. Sure, it's slow,
but it's fun to ride and is the kind of plane you'll need when
you want to get the job done in high-risk areas.

A good, fast plane. You should definitely use it
in the next mission, "Through the Valley of Death."


---

Head to Briefings, and find the next mission. Locate it on the map
and head towards it, going through ranges on your way there.




*********************************************************************
*********************Through the Valley of Death*********************
*********************************************************************


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    We have just received word from the Intelligence Divison. There is an enemy
fortress on a bridge in the upstream portion of the Cayenne River, near the
foothills of Mt. Megalith.
    Your mission is to cut off the United Forces supply route on the Cayenne
River. You must attack and destroy the fortress and seal off their transport
routes on the river. It looks to be a difficult mission, but success is vital.
    The airspace above the gorges is saturated with their aerial defense
network. We recommend that you fly within the gorge, and be on guard against
making contact with the rock face.
    Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    For this mission, you'll want to use a fast jet (I recommend using the F-4E
Phantom II). It's imperative that you maneuver quickly around the defenses and
don't waste too much time around the turrets, or you'll end up like the
squadron of F/A-18's in the opening movie. Also, DO NOT fly above the cliff
walls. You will automatically fail the mission because of the supposed air
defenses, so if the HUD is telling you to Pull Down, then for God's sake, PULL
DOWN! And as for getting lost in this mission, it's nearly impossible. Just
follow the path through the valley and you shouldn't have a problem.

    Begin by flying to the right, following the valley walls. The three ships
in the river up ahead are not primary targets, so I recommend evading
them...unless you want the extra money for destroying them. This goes for any
other ships you'll encounter in this level. Continue down the river as it
broadens out and the first bridge is in sight. Cycle through your targets until
you select the center of the bridge, which is an orange target on-screen. Once
you lock on to it, fire a missile and watch as the bridge is reduced to rubble.
Keep going, and fire another missile at the next bridge. Take a left, and then
make your way to the next two bridges, which you should know by now how to
destroy.

    Here's where the fun starts. In the following area, there is quite a large
amount of anti-aircraft emplacements scattered around the fortress. There are
also two bridges which you'll need to destroy on each side of it. My strategy
is to begin on the left, and start heading counter-clockwise as I make my way
all around the fortress, taking out turrets and bridges as I go. You may find a
way that is easier to you, but that way seems to work best for me. You'll
probable have to circle around more than once, but try to make it quick as to
avoid turret fire as best you can. The turrets turn slowly so it is easy to
maneuver past them. Once you have destroyed all of the primary targets, this
mission will be complete.

************************The Quiet March******************************
*********************************************************************



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    An emergency situation has arisen. A large United Forces transport carrier
has been confirmed near the mouth of the Cayenne River. It is confirmed that
the transport is carrying an airborne division. It is suspected that they are
going to attempt a parachute attack on our base in that vicinity.
    You must quickly intercept and destroy the transport carrier. Prevent the
paratroopers from occupying the base. Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    This mission is easy; you are not required to take out any fighters, just
tanks. Once you begin, look at your radar and head toward the red targets,
which are turrets. Destroy them.

    Next, you'll make your way to the airbase (Use your map [D-Pad Up] to find
it). Destroy any tanks you see approaching on your radar, and watch out for the
buildings and fuel dumps. It is easy to crash while going for one of the tanks
(it's hidden between a couple buildings). Destroying the rest of the tank
column will complete this mission.

    IMPORTANT TIP: On your way to the airbase, it is possible to intercept a
transport carrier and destroy it before it releases it's payload of tanks.
You'll still have to destroy a few tanks, but this saves a lot of ammo and the
risk of taking more damage from tanks by destroying them before they're even
deployed.

Once you complete this mission, Bellona Airbase will be uncovered.
Head over there now to find some new planes for sale and to receive
orders for new missions.

If you need help on those missions, skip to the section for "Bellona Airbase."
After completion of one or more of the missions there, you can return to
Agakles Airbase for new objectives. The missions are "Streets of Rust" and
"Ambush in the Jungle."





*********************************************************************
************************Streets of Rust******************************
*********************************************************************


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    Haimos City is currently being reconnoitered by United Forces spy planes.
They are using the city buildings as a shield, so we can't use our
anti-aircraft artillery against them.
    You are being dispatched to Haimos City to intercept and destroy the spy
planes. You will be engaging the enemy within the confines of the city, so be
as careful as you can.
    Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

     In order to unlock this mission, you'll need to first head to Bellona
Airbase and complete the mission, "Defending the Zayno."

     This mission takes place in a highly urbanized area, so you have to
maintain constant alert as to not make contact with any of the buildings. Stay
above the buildings whenever you can, and when you must make a strafing run on
a target below, be extremely cautious and try to use the main roads or fly over
the river to get there. This way, you'll stay out of the way of the buildings
for as long as possible. Most of the targets are near open areas anyway, but
you should still travel slowly so you can avoid crashes.

    Begin by flying towards the nearest target, which is an AA battery. It is
located near a yellow target on your radar, if that helps. Swoop down until
you're in range and destroy it. Now, you'll see a couple of jets on your radar.
The recon planes are the RF-4's...they fly fairly slowly and in a straight
path, just like bombers. The only difference is that they fly through the city,
so you may have to avoid buildings while chasing them. Use guns to destroy them
if it's possible. Your other targets are AA guns and fighters, so keep your eye
on the radar to find them. Use your map in order to stay on the correct course,
and you shouldn't have too much of a hard time destroying everything. Just
remember to stay cautious of the skyscrapers and don't waste too much time on
the fighters.

************************Ambush in the Jungle*************************
*********************************************************************


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    Lately, many of our spy planes have been disappearing over the jungles.
This cannot be accounted for by mere accidents.
    We suspect that there is a United Forces base and military presence in the
area. You must find the United Forces military center in the jungle and destroy
it. Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    To unlock this mission, you'll need to complete the mission, "The Crimson
Sea," which requires you to go to the Bellona Airbase.

    This mission is a little difficult, mostly because of the Harriers that
appear out of nowhere. But other than that, it's not too bad.

    To begin, head towards the first ground target, and destroy it. Be careful
though...as soon as you do this, a Harrier will begin lifting off vertically in
front of you. Slow down, and fire as many missiles as you can into it. It takes
three missiles to shoot it down, or two missiles and a burst of gunfire.
Continue to the left and look for the first base. Take out any primary targets,
including the AH-64 Apache helicopter. Watch out for these because they can be
a pain to take out. Once you're finished here, continue on with the mission,
destroying more Harriers and targets at bases and the mission will be complete.

Briefing:

    We've detected the enemy front line on radar. We're now heading for this
location to attack. Hope you're ready for a good fight, everyone.
    Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    This mission is a HIDDEN MISSION. You'll need to locate it before you can
begin. To do so, head to Agakles Airbase. If you're there already, then just
stay there. The hidden mission is located to the northeast of the airbase.
You'll have to pass through 2 small ranges before you get there. When you
complete the second range, you'll see the new level uncovered.

    A very easy level. Only three main areas to clear, and each one is only
outfitted with 6 targets...4 of which are primary targets. The other two are
ZSU-23 AAA's, which are hardly dangerous. Just begin by destroying the primary
enemy fighter, and proceed to destroy the rest of the targets in the next three
areas. Use your map screen, or just follow your radar until all targets are
eliminated.

    Head to the Briefings page, and select "Pursuit Across the Sky," read the
instructions, and then go back to the briefings page. Select "Defending the
Zayno," and then choose to take off. I recommend doing this is because the
pursuit mission is a mission that can be done at any time, since it involves
the bomber moving around on the map screen. You have to catch up to it before
you can start the mission, so you might as well initiate the plane to move so
you can catch it whenever you feel comfortable.

    Does this mission look familiar, or what? Sure, the weather's different,

copied the directions for that mission into this one.

up to you to respond.
    Your mission is to find the United Forces attack submarine and sink it.

    This mission is incredibly easy. The only thing that you need to do is
bring a heavy, high-defensive plane like the A-10 and do your best to dodge the
submarines' missiles. After destroying a mere 4 submarines (which is still 3
more than what command tells you), the mission is complete!

*********************Pursuit Across the Sky**************************
*********************************************************************


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    Our early-warning sensor net has been activated. There appears to be a
United Forces bomber group. There is a strong possibility they are planning on
bombing our bases.
    You are being dispatched immediately to intercept the bomber group and
destroy it.
Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    In order to get to this mission, you'll have to find the B-1B bomber. It
will basically fly around the map screen until you can catch up to it. If you
have trouble getting to it, here's a hint: try using your jet with the highest
range. This will make it easier for you to catch up with it, since it will now
move less frequently.

    Once you get to it, press A to begin the mission. This one is quite easy,
since you only have to take out one fighter escort and three slow-moving
bombers. If you get the chance, use your guns to take out the bombers. They are
easy targets and you'll get twice the money for doing so. You have to be fairly
quick, however...if they manage to leave the operational area, then the mission
is over.

    I recommend quickly getting to the bombers, but slowing down to the
bomber's cruising speed. They have no defenses, so you can hang out alongside
them and take them out one by one. Once you destroy them, you can take out the
fighter escorts, if you haven't already.


After completing this mission, you will be rewarded with a new plane!

Pretty good for chasing other planes due to its high

*********************************************************************
**********************Double-Winged Condor***************************
*********************************************************************


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    We've received word from all air-defense squadrons. They've been receiving
heavy losses from United Forces fighters. It seems there's an ace just like you
flying for the United Forces. We can't afford to sustain and more losses.
    You are to intercept the enemy fighter immediately and dispense with him.
Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    I know what you're thinking. "How tough could this 'ace' be?" Well, for
one, his missiles dish out some huge damage. Second, his flight maneuvers are
so annoying that it's hard enough just trying to catch up with him, nevermind
hitting him with missiles. Third (!!), it takes quite a bit of punishment
before it goes down. It's like the game completely turned it around and gave
your missiles, HP, etc. to an enemy fighter and vice-versa. It's ridiculous.

    Also, I feel that I should mention that these tips are for Expert controls.
I'm sure it's probably easier to do this with Beginner's controls, but I don't
use them.

    The only real tip I can give you is to be persistent. He'll constantly do
donuts around you but you have to keep trying to catch up to him. If you want
to swing around towards him, a good ideal speed to keep is around 200-300 mph.
If you can, try to keep switching between slowing down to about 160, and then
speeding up again to about 350, it will allow you to easily catch up with him.

     When you get a good lock, lead the target in front of him and fire two
missiles at a time. I wouldn't recommend using guns, but if you really wanted
to, you could. Your rewarded with a lot more money if you manage to, though.

    Once you've defeated the enemy ace, head back to the airbase. I
congratulate you on completing one of the hardest missions in the game. There
are still plenty more, but I think the 1-on-1 ace levels are the most difficult.


After completing this mission, you are awarded a new fighter!

*******************Battle for the Zabios Ruins***********************
*********************************************************************


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    A scouting squadron has reported in. They have discovered a large base near
the ruins of the old Zabios monastery. The Monastery lies on a choke point for
our supply lines. Only the United Forces would build a base there.
    Your mission is to investigate their base and destroy it. The Zabios
Monastery may be an irreplaceable monument, but this is war; it will inevitable
incur some damage. Over and out.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    You don't have to worry about protecting the monastery. And besides, you
probably won't even come close to shooting at it for the most part.

    The tough part about this mission is that the enemy targets are enclosed in
sections of the monastery, so most areas have to be revisited from the opposite
angle so you can destroy all of them. Just try not to crash while you're
maneuvering around the ruins, and keep going in a circular pattern around the
area until everything is destroyed. Other than that, this mission is easy.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    We've received word from all air-defense squadrons. They've been receiving
heavy losses from United Forces fighters. It seems there's an ace just like you
flying for the United Forces. We can't afford to sustain and more losses.
    You are to intercept the enemy fighter immediately and dispense with him.
Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    A replica of "Double-Winged Condor," this is another 1-on-1 ace mission
against an enemy Lavi fighter jet. I'll copy in the walkthrough of that level,
for convenience.

-----
   I know what you're thinking. "How tough could this 'ace' be?" Well, for one,
his missiles dish out some huge damage. Second, his flight maneuvers are so
annoying that it's hard enough just trying to catch up with him, nevermind
hitting him with missiles. Third (!!), it takes quite a bit of punishment
before it goes down. It's like the game completely turned it around and gave
your missiles, HP, etc. to an enemy fighter and vice-versa. It's ridiculous.

    Also, I feel that I should mention that these tips are for Expert controls.
I'm sure it's probably easier to do this with Beginner's controls, but I don't
use them.

    The only real tip I can give you is to be persistent. He'll constantly do
donuts around you but you have to keep trying to catch up to him. If you want
to swing around towards him, a good ideal speed to keep is around 200-300 mph.
If you can, try to keep switching between slowing down to about 160, and then
speeding up again to about 350, it will allow you to easily catch up with him.

     When you get a good lock, lead the target in front of him and fire two
missiles at a time. I wouldn't recommend using guns, but if you really wanted
to, you could. Your rewarded with a lot more money if you manage to, though.

    Once you've defeated the enemy ace, head back to the airbase. I
congratulate you on completing one of the hardest missions in the game. There
are still plenty more, but I think the 1-on-1 ace levels are the most difficult.

After completing this mission, you'll be rewarded with a new plane!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is a HIDDEN MISSION! It is located north of Chairon Airbase. You'll
have to pass by a range to uncover it.

    This mission is definitely an easy one. It only takes place in a small
area, so there aren't many targets of importance here. With only a couple
fighters to complement it, this one shouldn't be a problem. Take your time, if
you need it, and score some extra cash by destroying both primary and secondary
targets.

************************The Rising Threat****************************
*********************************************************************


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    An emergency situation has arisen. We have learned of an orbital shuttle
that the United Forces has been developing in secret. It already has an attack
satellite on board, and is preparing to take off as we speak. The satellite
possesses a weapon of mass destruction that could wipe out all of our surface
bases in one attack.
    You are being dispatched to attack the shuttle and prevent it from leaving
the atmosphere. Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    This mission can be difficult, but as long as you know what you need to do,
it's not too bad. First of all, you want to use a fast, powerful jet. A good
example is the MiG-25PD Foxbat, which has a good acceleration rate and is the
fastest jet you have (assuming you purchased it).
    Begin by lifting the nose up and heading almost straight up. Put on full
afterburners and make your way past the clouds and towards the two bombers
carrying the shuttles. As you approach, focus all of your attention on them.
Don't worry about the fighter escorts, just head straight for the shuttles.
    When you come within range of them, begin to slow down to their cruising
speed, but try to stay as close as possible without overrunning them. Lock-on
to the orange target (the shuttle) on one of the bombers, and fire as many
missiles that it takes until it is destroyed. Quickly lock-on to the other
shuttle and begin firing. If it has already detached from the bomber, put on
your afterburners and chase after it. Fire as many missiles as you can and, if
you did it correctly, the second shuttle will be toast. Mission accomplished,
return to base.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    As you know, we failed to prevent the takeoff of the orbital shuttle in
D-Sector. As a result, the United Forces have succeeded in placing their
satellite in orbit. Interrogation of United Forces soldiers has revealed that
the target of the attack satellite on board the shuttle is Aragon City.
    Soon the satellite's missiles will be launched. You must intercept the
missiles and destroy them.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


/////\\\\\
WARNING!!!
\\\\\/////
This is the last mission of the first campaign! If you were planning on
exploring or returning to other bases to purchase planes, you must do so NOW
before you begin this mission! I strongly suggest saving your game on an empty
block, in case you wanted to return to this point if you happened to forget
something in the first campaign, such as searching for hidden missions.




    I would consider this to be a difficult mission. Destroying inbound
ballistic missiles isn't as easy as it sounds *cough* but at least you don't
have to destroy anything else. Meaning you can concentrate on the missiles. I
also recommend using a plane with high power and speed, such as the new
MiG-31BM Foxhound. Trust me...you'll need it when you're going vertical at
40,000 feet.

    OK, first up, you'll receive a message saying "Group of missiles
approaching Block A." If you turn on the map, you'll see that there are three
blocks (you might not be able to see it yet, but you'll be able to later):
block A, B, and C. So, to get to the missiles, you have to go up. Way up. Go
past the clouds, and watch your radar. Eventually you'll see a few light sparks
in the sky. These are the missiles entering the atmosphere. Head towards them
and wait until you can lock onto the lead missile. Each missile takes three
missiles to destroy it, so it's best to slow down before you meet up with it.
Once it's destroyed, keep heading up and destroy as many as you can before
either (A) your plane stalls, or (B) you overrun the missiles. In either case,
you can just turn around and head back down. Try to do this as quickly as
possible...there are still two more areas you'll have to defend.

****************************Oil SOS**********************************

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    As you know, this long war is being fought over the basic necessities of
food and other resources. We have decided to transport the crude oil from an
oil field we are occupying to the rear. The United Forces are expected to throw
everything they have into an attempt to destroy the tanker.
    Your mission is to guard the tanker on its voyage. Make sure that the
tanker sustains no damage on the attack. Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    Like an escort mission, your job here is to destroy any incoming bombers.
It's pretty easy to do, since bombers are fairly slow and are sitting ducks in
the sky. They're not hard to find, either.

    Use your radar to see where they're coming from, and head in that
direction. Make sure you don't leave the operational area on your way
there...sometimes the bombers may show up on radar but are not actually in the
area, so chasing it means failing the mission. Just hang around their entry
point, and once they are in, fire a missile at it, chase them until you're in
range with guns, and shoot it down. Repeat two more times to complete the
mission.

*********************************************************************
************************Fortress on the Sands************************
*********************************************************************



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    It seems the United Forces has moved a new type of mobile battle fortress
to the front. The new fortress is called "Aconcagua," and possesses both attack
capabilities and the ability to act as an aircraft carrier. We have info that
it is moving freely about the deserts in Elcia. Since we are currently in a
deadlock over control of the deserts, we cannot allow the enemy to bring such a
high concentration of military strength to bear.
    Your duty is to find this "Aconcagua" and neutralize it. Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    This mission is difficult because you are bound to take a beating before
it's over. With massive amounts of firepower, the Aconcagua and its battle
group are quite the threat. I would recommend using a high-HP plane like the
Lavi or A-10 so you can sustain more damage.

    You'll start the mission heading directly for the Aconcagua. There are
numerous land vehicles, so going directly for the center one is not a good
idea; head to the left or right and make your way towards the middle. You may
notice that sometimes your missiles won't hit the orange targets...this is
because there are some obstructions in the way of the target so you'll have to
work around them. Destroying all of the land vehicles requires you to make
numerous fly-bys, but try to do it as quickly as possible so they don't escape
into the desert. The central Aconcagua land carrier is the most important
vehicle to destroy, but definitely take caution and make sure your missiles hit
their targets. If you miss with the missile, just use gunfire to destroy them.

    Once they're all destroyed, the mission's complete.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    A United Forces military action against Latmos City is underway. Latmos
City is a supply storage location for the Allied Forces, and thus is an
invaluable base for behind-the-lines operations. If Latmos City should fall,
more than half of the landing Allied Forces military strength would be lost.
    Your mission is to attack and destroy the invading United Forces army.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    This is one of my favorite missions. It's not too hard, but since it's
dark, you have to be careful so you don't crash into anything.

    Begin by flying towards the nearest enemy-filled area by using the map
screen. There are two towers in each area, each with turrets on them that
you'll have to destroy. It may take more than one run-through, but make sure
you get everything. Use your radar if you're not sure. Without going into too
much detail, just continue to destroy any primary targets until you finish the
mission.

     For a little added bonus, try watching the replay from the cockpit view.
You'll be able to see it through night-vision.

Briefing:

    Our main goal in the drive to occupy Elcia is to gain control of the
massive resources in the ground there. Many of the oilfields that we have
secured so far are under sttack from the United Forces. The re-occupation and
destruction of the oilfield bases is only a matter of time.
    Your mission is to prevent the oilfield bases from being destroyed. Over
and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    An easy mission involving you protecting the oil fields. Don't worry, it's
not like the "protect the tanker" missions, since nobody is deliberately
attacking the bases. There are just numerous fortifications and helicopters
located near the oil bases that you'll need to take out.

    Just follow your map screen to find each oil base, and basically follow the
pipeline to find the next set of enemies. Be careful around the helicopters and
make sure you take them out quickly. Once you've destroyed every primary
target, you have succeeded in protecting the oil bases.

so annoying that it's hard enough just trying to catch up with him, nevermind
hitting him with missiles. Third (!!), it takes quite a bit of punishment
before it goes down. It's like the game completely turned it around and gave
your missiles, HP, etc. to an enemy fighter and vice-versa. It's ridiculous.

    Also, I feel that I should mention that these tips are for Expert controls.
I'm sure it's probably easier to do this with Beginner's controls, but I don't
use them.

    The only real tip I can give you is to be persistent. He'll constantly do
donuts around you but you have to keep trying to catch up to him. If you want
to swing around towards him, a good ideal speed to keep is around 200-300 mph.
If you can, try to keep switching between slowing down to about 160, and then
speeding up again to about 350, it will allow you to easily catch up with him.

     When you get a good lock, lead the target in front of him and fire two
missiles at a time. I wouldn't recommend using guns, but if you really wanted
to, you could. Your rewarded with a lot more money if you manage to, though.

    Once you've defeated the enemy ace, head back to the airbase. I
congratulate you on completing one of the hardest missions in the game. There
are still plenty more, but I think the 1-on-1 ace levels are the most difficult.

After completing this mission, you will be rewarded with a new plane!

This plane is absolutely incredible. You can use it from now on,
since it surpasses a lot of the planes that you'll see.
Until you are rewarded with the XF-0002 Phosphorus, that is.


From here on, I will rarely recommend any other planes. Just make sure you be
fairly cautious and save your game before you use it. That way, in case it is
destroyed, you can revert to your previous game save.

Briefing:

    An emergency warning has come in from out Coastal Patrol squadron. They
have spotted an unidentified object in the water. It is probably a United
Forces attack submarine. Since we have little naval strength in the area, it's
up to you to respond.
    Your mission is to find the United Forces attack submarine and sink it.
Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    This mission is incredibly easy. The only thing that you need to try to do
is to dodge the submarines' missiles. If you use a high-HP plane, you can just
let the missiles hit you if you really wanted to. After destroying a mere 4
submarines (which is still 3 more than what command tells you), the mission is
complete!

The cream of the crop...this is the best plane in the game. Aside from its
attack power, it's stats are maxed out. Unless I say not to, use this for the
rest of the game. Because of its high range, use it for completing ranges
especially because it will take longer for the enemy to overtake them.

Briefing:

    We've discovered an enemy radar facility. We're now heading for this
facility to take it out. Hope you're ready for a good fight, everyone.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is a HIDDEN MISSION!! To locate it, you'll have to head east from
Daeira Airbase. You'll have to pass through a good amount of ranges before you
find it, but keep heading east. It will be directly after a "small" range on
the map screen. Once you find it, head to it and begin the mission.

    This mission is quite easy. Despite the fighters, your only targets are
stationary ground turrets, buildings, and radar systems. Use your radar to find
and destroy as many targets as you can before completing the mission. You may
find the fighters to be pests as you go after the ground targets, so it is a
good idea to destroy any fighters you see before you descend.

    Once you have destroyed every primary target, it's mission complete.

Briefing:

    Our main goal in the drive to occupy Elcia is to gain control of the
massive resources in the ground there. Many of the oilfields that we have
secured so far are under sttack from the United Forces. The re-occupation and
destruction of the oilfield bases is only a matter of time.
    Your mission is to prevent the oilfield bases from being destroyed. Over
and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    This mission wouldn't be too difficult if it weren't for the sandstorm, and
not just because of the visibility. Although it is somewhat decreased...that is
a smaller issue. The problem is that your radar has been severely limited to
only appearing at 1-2 second intervals. You'll realize how useful your radar
can be now that you're without it. Using your map can help you navigate,
however. Just turn it on and follow the waypoint arrow to find your way around.
Another way to find an enemy is to pay attention to your damaged radar. Every
second or two, it will briefly flash on screen and you can tell roughly where
enemies are located. Find and destroy any enemies you encounter as you navigate
from base to base.

*************************Falling Down********************************
*********************************************************************

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    It seems that another ship of exactly the same design as the "Aconcagua"
that we destroyed exists. We have received information from captured enemy
soldiers on the whereabouts of the secret dock where it is currently stationed.
We have also learned that the remaining strength of the United Forces land
forces is congregating there.
    Your mission is to attack the secret dock and destroy the mobile fortress.
Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    This mission is like the "Fortress on the Sands" mission, except the
Aconcagua and other land vehicles remain stationary, making them easier targets.

    Begin by heading forward and destroying the first couple ground targets.
Use your radar and locate the nearest primary target, including the land
carriers and radar systems. When closing in on the Aconcagua unit, make sure
you take caution as to not take damage from their missiles. After launching a
missile, quickly pick up the nose and roll to the side to avoid them. Once
you've destroyed all of the surrounding targets, head over to the mountainside
and destroy the two enemy structures.

    Now, to complete the mission, you'll have to find the two remaining
targets. Sounds easy, right? There's a catch, however...they're located inside
the mountain. In order to get there, you have to find the tunnel leading
inside. It is easily noticeable if you fly farther away from it and then turn
around to look for it. Once you find it, head into it and constantly be
cautious of making contact with the floors/walls/ceilings. The path will
eventually widen, and then shorten again. In the wider section, there are two
enemy vehicles, on each side. Select one of them to go after, lock-on to it,
and destroy it. You most likely will not be able to destroy both targets in one
go-through, so you may need to head all the way through the tunnel and turn
around to destroy the remaining target on the way back. Once all targets are
destroyed, you have accomplished your mission.

victory to make up for their recent land losses. Our generals have decided to

currently converging on Notos and help defeat the United Forces navy. Over and

    Another mission where you have to destroy the enemy naval fleet. You should
be used to this now. Just search for enemy ships and destroy them all.

Briefing:

    As you know, this long war is being fought over the basic necessities of
food and other resources. We have decided to transport the crude oil from an
oil field we are occupying to the rear. The United Forces are expected to throw
everything they have into an attempt to destroy the tanker.
    Your mission is to guard the tanker on its voyage. Make sure that the
tanker sustains no damage on the attack. Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    Similar to the "Oil SOS" mission, your job is to take down any bombers that
attempt to destroy the oil tanker. The only primary targets are the bombers, so
you can fully concentrate on them rather than on fighters or ground targets.

    So, to begin, follow the orange arrow on your radar to get to the area
where the bombers come from. Don't go too far, however...you don't want to
leave the operational area or the mission is a failure. Just hang around the
area in which they use to enter the airspace and shoot them down, one-by-one.
They'll only come one at a time, so you'll quickly find out how easy this
mission is. Use your guns to score some extra money, if you so desire.

    You are to intercept the enemy fighter immediately and dispense with him.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The final ace mission. I bet you're getting sick of them by now. I know the
following walkthrough must sound weird and overused after seeing it so many
times (assuming you've been reading from the beginning) but for those who
haven't, I still have to put it in.



-----

    This mission is difficult because, first of all, the ace's missiles dish
out some huge damage. Second, his flight maneuvers are so annoying that it's
hard enough just trying to catch up with him, nevermind hitting him with
missiles. Third (!!), it takes quite a bit of punishment before it goes down.
It's like the game completely turned it around and gave your missiles, HP, etc.
to an enemy fighter and vice-versa. It's ridiculous.

    Also, I feel that I should mention that these tips are for Expert controls.
I'm sure it's probably easier to do this with Beginner's controls, but I don't
use them.

    The only real tip I can give you is to be persistent. He'll constantly do
donuts around you but you have to keep trying to catch up to him. If you want
to swing around towards him, a good ideal speed to keep is around 200-300 mph.
If you can, try to keep switching between slowing down to about 160, and then
speeding up again to about 350, it will allow you to easily catch up with him.

     When you get a good lock, lead the target in front of him and fire two
missiles at a time. I wouldn't recommend using guns, but if you really wanted
to, you could. Your rewarded with a lot more money if you manage to, though.

    Once you've defeated the enemy ace, head back to the airbase.
Congratulations for completing the last ace mission.

You know the drill by now. Head to the Briefings screen, select all three
missions so that they're considered "In Progress," and take-off. You can choose
what missions you would like to fulfill in any order, but I have ordered them
below in the same order as they appear on the mission list.



*********************************************************************
******************Offensive in the Saice Canal***********************
*********************************************************************


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    The United Forces naval fleet that retreated from the recent naval battle
is now occupying the Saice Canal. Since the Saice Canal is used by vessels from
neutral countries, it is a perfect place for United Forces ships to hide.
    You are being dispatched to attack the remaining United Forces navy and
annihilate it. Avoid damage to neutral vessels as much as you can.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    A difficult mission, you have to take out numerous enemy ships and turrets
as you progress through the canal. There are quite a few ship underpasses that
you need to clear, as well as destroy the turret above them. You also have to
avoid shooting at neutral ships...it detracts from your reward bonus at the end
of the mission. Just do your best to avoid the missiles fired from the ships,
and I recommend going after the enemy fighters early on so that they don't
become too much of a nuisance. Use your map to find each new target of
importance and destroy them all to complete the mission.

    Similar to the "Oil SOS" and "Path to the Open Sea" missions, your job is
to take down any bombers that attempt to destroy the oil tanker. The only
primary targets are the bombers, so you can fully concentrate on them rather
than on fighters or ground targets.

    So, to begin, follow the orange arrow on your radar to get to the area
where the bombers come from. Don't go too far, however...you don't want to
leave the operational area or the mission is a failure. Just hang around the
area in which they use to enter the airspace and shoot them down, one-by-one.
They'll only come one at a time, so you'll quickly find out how easy this
mission is. Use your guns to score some extra money, if you so desire.

Briefing:

    Our main goal in the drive to occupy Elcia is to gain control of the
massive resources in the ground there. Many of the oilfields that we have
secured so far are under attack from the United Forces. The re-occupation and
destruction of the oilfield bases is only a matter of time.
    Your mission is to prevent the oilfield bases from being destroyed. Over
and out.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    An easy mission involving you protecting the oil fields. Don't worry, it's
not like the "protect the tanker" missions, since nobody is deliberately
attacking the bases. There are just numerous fortifications and helicopters
located near the oil bases that you'll need to take out.

    Just follow your map screen to find each oil base, and basically follow the
pipeline to find the next set of enemies. Be careful around the helicopters and
make sure you take them out quickly. Once you've destroyed every primary
target, you have succeeded in protecting the oil bases.

**********************Attack of the Tyrant***************************
*********************************************************************


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    We have finally found the secret of the United Forces super-weapon. Our
Intelligence Division has code-named the weapon "Tyrant." It uses concentrated
light from the sun. Once the order to fire has been given, a central computer
takes control and aims a high-energy laser at the target. Furthermore, the
weapon is housed in an un-manned automatically-defended facility.
    Our Navy and Air Force have already received significant damage from
"Tyrant." Before it strikes again, we will use our remaining military strength
to create a diversion, then throw everything we have into neutralizing the
weapon's defenses. We are depending on you on this one. Over and out.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    This mission takes place in two different areas. Let me warn you now that
these missions are very difficult. Although they only take place in a
relatively small area, the amount of fighters is insane. At any given time you
can have at least five of them firing a barrage of missiles at you. There's
really nothing you can do but try to escape from most of them and only destroy
the required targets. The reason for this is your limited amount of time; if
you try to take out all of the fighters, you'll waste a lot of time, and the
Tyrant system may activate. Try heading for the Tyrant system and destroying it
before you start going after the aerial targets. And also, you should
definitely use missiles to take out enemy fighters. Using guns will get you a
little bit of extra money, but it can be time-consuming...and you know what
that leads to.

    Begin by taking off and heading to the Tyrant system to the east. I would
normally recommend using the XF-0002, but for some reason, it just doesn't cut
it in this mission. You're better off using a jet like the S-37 Berkut, if you
have it. It seems to be the better choice despite its lower stats. Don't ask me
why, but it just feels more equipped for a high-threat mission like this one.

    First, you'll have to pass through the two ranges before you can get to the
mission. Go ahead and do so, and then head to the mission. This one is the
easier of the two Tyrant missions, but it is still difficult nonetheless. Begin
by following your radar to the Tyrant system. You'll pass by a few I-2000s and
other fighters, but try to ignore them, if possible. Continue forward and
you'll eventually come to the Tyrant. There are 6 targets on the main surface
of the Tyrant, and one target on the side that launches missiles. You'll
probably make more than one pass, but fly fairly slowly and destroy as many as
possible in one run-through. Repeat, if necessary, until the system is toast.

    Do your best to defend against the enemy fighters and continue to destroy
the primary targets on the sea. When the area surrounding the Tyrant is clear,
follow your map to find the next 4 ships, and destroy them. Now you get a bit
of a chance for revenge on the fighters. Pursue any and all primary targets,
above all, and if you have a bit of extra time, you can hit some of the
secondary targets. And once all of your targets are destroyed, the mission is
complete.

Attack of the Tyrant, Part 2




    Now, the second Tyrant mission is underway. Head back to the base to repair
your plane, and take-off once again and make your way to the Tyrant north of
the base. Pass the two ranges (you should go back to base and save your game
after this), and start the mission.

    This mission is harder than the first one, because there are two Tyrant
systems. There is more of a threat that they will commence an attack, which is
an immediate mission failure. Plenty of enemy fighters, which can be a good
thing for people who like dogfighting, but horrible for those who don't.

    To begin, fly to the right a bit and head towards one of the Tyrant
systems. The one on the right is the one that gets ready to attack first, so
make sure you go directly for it. To destroy the system, you'll need to knock
out all of the panels, and the missile launcher on the side. Destroy any nearby
targets of importance while avoiding missiles from the fighters. You can go
after the fighters at any time, but I recommend heading over to the second
Tyrant system and destroying it before doing that. Use your map to find it, and
when you get there, repeat the same process to destroy everything.

    There are roughly 15 enemy planes, many of which you _have_ to take
out...so don't bother using guns on them. It takes valuable time, especially
when you're getting hit by a barrage of missiles from the enemies on your tail.
Only use missiles, and do it quickly.  Repeat for any more primary targets, and
the mission's complete.

*********************************************************************
*************************Final Mission*******************************
*********************************************************************


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing:

    This is our last mission. We have to find a way into "Tyrant"'s core and
destroy its control center. May luck be with us.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------


    There are two parts to this mission, as well...but I'll just keep it in one
section.

    This mission is the last one, and it can be quite difficult. The
anti-aircraft towers are extremely dangerous, and need to be approached with
caution. They fire three consecutive missiles at a high speed, but also at a
relatively high altitude. You can take advantage of this by beginning your
approach at a low altitude, and quickly rising up to lock-on and fire. The
reason for this is that the missiles have a hard time tracking you at a low
altitude.

    There are plenty of these anti-aircraft towers, so just be patient and go
in a circular pattern along the main structure, destroying them as you go
around. Watch out for enemy fighters, and destroy them whenever you want. Once
you've taken out all of the anti-aircraft weapons, proceed to the main
structure, and head to the top of it. Locate the needle in the middle and
destroy it.

    Once this is done, a cutscene will begin and the second part of the mission
will begin. The second part can be difficult if it's your first time doing it,
so be extra careful and don't worry about going slow...if you crash into
anything, you'll have to start the mission over from the very beginning. So,
slowly follow the path as it turns and watch out for any obstructions in the
path. Some vehicles are parked in the tunnel, so make sure you fly over them.
At one point, the path will be very tight above and below you, so just take it
slow. After about a minute, the path will open up into a huge room with a large
core in the center. Circle around it, destroying the pillar-shaped turrets, and
then look for the primary targets on the core. When you locate one or both,
destroy them with missiles. Once you've done this, turn around and head for the
nearest primary target, which is located in a smaller hallway that loops back
around to the main chamber. Find the target and destroy it, and watch as the
room darkens. When you re-enter the large room, it will be illuminated by
electric charges running through it. Head towards the center of the core, where
the electricity is being produced. Find the central target, destroy it with a
missile, and quickly turn around.

After this, the final cutscene will begin. Congratulations on completing
Airforce Delta Storm.

In this section, I have the aircraft that I have not yet found the locations
for. As I uncover more, this list will decrease until hopefully this section is
not needed anymore.
If you know the locations to these planes, please let me know. You'll be
credited with finding it.

Oh, and by the way, I have gathered the information for these planes from Free
Mission mode, so this is how I know their stats.
