Well, here it is. Thought I'd finally get around to making an AC quest!Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandOther Quests:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20Quest (Complete)http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Cyberpunk%20Idol%20Management%20Quest (Running)http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=pararescue+witches (Running)http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=magical+girl+hunter (Complete)http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=gundam+build+fighters+quest (Complete)Also, before we start things, I have a DISCLAIMER. This is a quest based off of the ACE COMBAT games, which are very arcadey and not simulationist at all. DO NOT expect super detailed, in depth, real world depictions of aircraft or air combat. Also, it'll probably be inevitable, but at least TRY to keep any planesperging civil and polite. With that out of the way, let's get this started!(cont)
>>35596541"Whiskey Five Two, this is Oured Air Control. You are cleared to land on runway two.""Roger that, Oured. Whiskey Five Two out." You reply as you click off your radio. Your then put your hands on the steering yoke as you guide the plane in."Captain, you know we have autopilot for that." Your copilot, Rosscot frowns."I know, but it makes me feel more like a pilot and less like a babysitter." You smile sadly. "Besides, it's not like we've done this hundreds of times already, right?""Whatever." Rosscot sighs leaning back, but making sure both the autopilot switch and his control yoke were in easy reach.Landing the private jet was easy enough. Even though you were manually controlling it, though, it just wasn't the same. You didn't want to admit it, but you really missed flying a fighter. The speed, the power...But that was all in the past.The plane touches down at Oured International Airport without incident, with neither the corporate bigwigs on board or the tower guys noticing the plane was being controlled by human hands rather than a soulless computer. As always, your passengers all waddle off to whatever business they needed to attend to . You just head straight to the pilots' lounge while you wait for the ground crew to finish looking over your plane for the next flight."Excuse me, do you have a moment?" You turn your head to see a prim and proper businesswoman. However, her lower than average height made her look more like a kid in a suit, which is an observation you quietly keep to yourself."Yes. What do you need?" You reply. "I actually had a business proposition for you." The woman smiles. "You're-">The trigger happy Emmerian.>The principled Osean.>The dour Belkan.>Other

>>35596553>>The dour Belkan.Haha, it's time to make terrible decisions!
>>35596662please no lets not ruin this before it starts
>>35596553>>The dour Belkan.Not all Belkan people bad anyway.
>>35596541LONG LIVE BELKA
>>35596700It is inevitable
>>35596700We'd make good decisions... Mostly.
>>35596717Pixy is an example
>>35596553>The dour Belkan.RECLAIM BELKAN CLAY.
>>35596553>>The principled Osean.Fuck Belka
>>35596726so belka is just full of young spawns....dear god it all makes sense!
>>35596700We've played the same thing in every Merc Quest. It's great.
>>35596754Pops is kinda cool for a Belkan.>>35596764GOD NO
I'm giddy with excitement. You'd best not disappoint, Merc.
>>35596783Knight path Belkans were pretty cool, too.
>>35596764I rather play a Frank Bishop then a young.>>35596776I beg to differ.
>>35596783>PopsWhy did you forgot best Belkan?!
What if we were schizophrenic and all of the above options
So are we gonna hang around in Bars and try to pic up chicks?
>>35596852>all of the above options>Hurrdurr
>>35596863No, the chicks come to us...for flight certification before getting their pilot wings
>>35596828who?Refresh me, its been too long since i last played Zero/Five.
>>35596884Belkan refugee to Osea who got adopted by a strange Emmerian couple who insist he's an angel?
>>35596935Pops, aka the raven from zero and our tech in five.>>35596938Hmm, now that you mention it...
Swordsman best ace combat
>>35596985Bro do you even Grimm
>>35596996bro do you even chopper
>>35596985If we're doing side characters, that'd be Pixy. He had actual character, while the others seemed rather flat or were just odd pacifists.
So when exactly does this take place? Would be interesting if we see Pixy lose a Wing during the battle he got his nickname.
>>35597039What part of the timeline are we in anyway? post-osean war? Corporate war?>>35597025I... I concede.
>>35597039>Pixy>Muh borderrs>Actual characterSnow was the only black man in the world and managed to become a fighter pilot. That takes real character.
>>35597080His character changed over the course of the game. The same can't be said of anyone else.
>>35597080What about Sorcerer 1, Antony Palmer?
>>35597118I assumed we were only doing wingmen.
>>35597118Oh fuck you're right.Wow two black men in the universe and both are pilots.
Su-27 best plane
>>35597143The black men in Strangereal aim high, it seems.
Wait a minute, what year is it right now?
>>35596553>The dour Belkan.There is no stopping it.
>>35597196I always find it odd how white the Ace Combat games are. It's like none of the developers have ever looked at a country that wasn't japan
>>35597187Look at the fruits of your choice, Flanker-fag.
>>35596553"Karla Weiss, correct?" She asks."That's correct." You nod, wondering what this woman was trying to peddle. "I haven't caught your name, though.""Ah Samantha Wellings." The woman smiles. Christ, she really did look like a kid in a suit. "I represent Artemis Defense. We're actually looking for experienced pilots, and I was wondering if you would be interested in taking up a position with us.""Sorry, I'm not interested in a desk job." You shake your head."Oh, I think you misunderstand me." Samantha's eyes glint. "What if I told you you'd be able to fly a fighter plane again?""...okay I'm interested." You concede. Was this really happening?"All right, let me just confirm some personal details we dug up on your background check." Samantha pulls out a folder from her suitcase and opens it up. "Now, you're Osean, correct?"You wince at this."Technically, I was born Belkan, but raised in Osea." You clarify. "I was born in southern Belka.""Ah, I see." Samantha nods. The southern half of Belka was handed over to Osea and renamed North Osea shortly after you were you born. It was... not a very nice time for you."It shows you fought in the Circum-Pacific War between Osea and Yuktobania six years ago, as part of the Osean Air Force." Samantha continues. "What was the extent of your combat experience?">Didn't see much action. I was in an air defense squadron.>Saw a fair bit. I was deployed to Yuktobania.>I've seen some shit.
>>35597242>It's like none of the developers have ever looked at a country that wasn't japanWelcome to Japan.
>>35597252>I've seen some shit.
>>35597252>>I've seen some shit."Fucking Razgriz hog all the good part!"
>>35597252>I- I'd rather not talk about it, if that's okay with you.
>>35597252>I've seen some shit.We're playing Karla? Fun times abound.
>>35597252>Karla>SamIt begins again, also>I've seen some shit
>>35597187Oh god, here we go>>35597252>I've seen some shit.Razgriz a Shit
>>35597252>>I've seen some shit.We lady pilot merc??>Samantha WellingsM-MERLIN with a different surname?
>>35597252>>Saw a fair bit. I was deployed to Yuktobania.Why the do I imagine Jager yelling Karla's name a la Star Trek 2?
dumb ass here that's not to familiar with the ace combat lore.I know Belkans are some of the best pilots around but what's the other nations things?
>>35597252> I've seen some shit.
>>35597292Only if we see Knight-Puncher. Or decide we make out with Sam instead.
>>35597296>Bishop family also present in this 'verseThis gonna be good.
>>35597296>M-MERLIN with a different surname?Nope, read Merc's other quests. Particularly Valkyrian Mercs Quest.
>>35597252>>I've seen some shit.
>>35597303this map sums it up, just look at the adjectives
>>35597328>Valkyrian Mercs QuestOh whew, thanks for the knock man.>>35597321Strangereal ain't ready for the gnome man.
>>35597296no val merc quest waifu>>35597321they are not
>>35597303Here's the most basic of rundowns.Osea is a very idealistic, pacifist version of the United States. Emmeria is kind of a weird combo of the United States and the European Union.Yuktobania is pretty much Russia.Belka is essentially pre-WWII Gemany with modern jet fighters.
>>35597353>they are notThere will probably be cameos.
Oh man I almost forgot that Merc was gonna run this today. Goodie!

Shame there's only 6 games and one online one.>but What About Assault Horizon?STONEHENGE IS FIRING
Born right after South Belka handed over, and six years after AC06, which puts us at 21 yrs old.Wait, we got shoved into a fighter at 15-16!?

>>35597430Lying about your age to get into the military is a tradition older than many modern nations.
Well looks like we can't exactly pick up chicks in bars....oh well, time to be a Wingman for someone.
>>35597454Or lying about our age AND pulling Grimm
>>35597426>>but What About Assault Horizon?
>>35597496>pulling GrimmI am okay with this.>>35597488We SW89 Maverick now
>>35597252>>I've seen some shit.So are we going the Knight route now???

>>35597426>but What About Assault Horizon?NIMBUS LAUNCH DETECTED>>35597516Always go full knight
>>35597488Who the fuck said that? Women can't resist pilot's wings, doesn't matter the sex of the individual wearing them.
>>35597515>not Freyja, Reginlief, or any of the other Norse goddesses and valkyries
>>35597515>>35597535Can we be Fury please let's be Fury
>>35597252Ah man not only a female pilot but also a recycled character MC. Suddenly less hype. I think I'll just see myself out.
>>35597553overdone and unoriginal.
>>35597426Assault Horizon a bestWE NEED CHOPPER BACKUP
>>35597512So we're fucking Orion?
>>35597252"I'd rather not talk about it." You frown. "I saw and did a lot of things during that war."Truth be told, you started out as a pilot trainee when the war broke out. Your first serious action was the Second Battle of Sand Island, where you had the privilege of watching your entire squadron get wiped out by those goddamn burst missiles. You almost didn't make it yourself, but you managed to eject from your mortally damaged craft just in time.If only your comrades were as lucky as you."Ah, I understand." Samantha nods sympathetically and continues on. "And I understand that your father fought during the Belkan War?""He did." You nod."Oddly enough, our records don't show his current status." Samantha frowns. "Can you please fill us in?">He didn't survive the war.>He lived, but he wasn't quite the same after that.
>>35597577some of the chopper stuff was fun but the door gunning bs was not needed
>>35597551I'm not up on my Norse mythology.
>>35597553like the greek mythology furies?
>>35597585>He lived, but he wasn't quite the same after that.

>>35597585>>He didn't survive the war.DADDY ISSUES!
>>35597615I've never cared about his recycled characters, I just don't want to play one. This is a first.
>>35597585>>He lived, but he wasn't quite the same after that.Like, he started talking stuff about invasions from outer space by some red-line aliens with BS g-force pulling...>>35597606Yep.
>>35597585> He lived, but didn't survive the war.
>>35597585>He didn't survive the war.we carry on his legacy

Stopping voting here so I can count.
>>35597585Not the same.Also, would make place him as a Balkan pilot during that war given the timing?

>>35597585"He didn't survive the war." You say simply."Oh, I'm sorry." Samantha bites her lip."That's about all I know, really." You sigh. "Don't really know the specifics.""Okay, erm, moving on." Samantha flips through a few more pages. "Is it true that you're associated with Detlef Fleisher?""He was my history teacher when I was in boarding school." You raise an eyebrow. "Why?""Well," Samantha nervously twirls a strand of her hair with her finger. "Mr. Fleisher is a rather well known Belkan Ace, and he's been rather outspoken about Belkan nationalism. You'd understand that certain employers would be nervous about associating with men like that.">I just saw him as a regular teacher. >I actually owe a lot to Detlef.

>>35598141>I actually owe a lot to Detlef.he was a good teacher nothing more
In the mission where Excalibur fucks up all of your shit and shoots down the transports, the beams come pretty much straight down from space. Did Belka have giant mirror satellites or some shit to pull that off? If so, how fucking cool is that huh?
>>35598141>>I just saw him as a regular teacher."Kinda a cool guy actually, though his politic view can be a bit grating. But outside that, yeah, he kinda a cool guy"
>>35598141>>I actually owe a lot to Detlef.Deal with it.
>>35598141>I actually owe a lot to Detlef.But not ideology.
>>35598227MY GOD, IT MAKES SENSE, BEAM REFLECTORS!
>>35598227Is a understan misconception. Belka science is of actually using atmosphere scattering to REUNITE CLA-I mean refocus laser after bouncing off of ionosphere. is geiusss

>>35598522It just FIRST thread and we already on shadowrun?If Merc axed this thread after this i won't surprised.
>>35598141"Well, I owe a lot to Detlef." You respond."Really?" Samantha gives you a suspicious look."Not in that way!" You shake your head rapidly. "I was in a really rough spot at the time. You should know how the annexation of North Osea turned out, right?""I do." Samantha nods."Yeah, it wasn't a fun time for anybody involved, especially for Belkans." You sigh. "My mom decided renounce her Belkan citizenship after the bombs dropped, and decided to stay in North Osea. Problem was, the only other Belkans who stayed were all the crazy ones. Imagine what it's like being born Belkan, but being told by EVERYBODY, your own mother included, that you're a piece of shit for it?""I-I see." Samantha blinks."Detlef was the first, the only person, to teach me there was nothing wrong with being Belkan." You say. "Now, I'm not saying Osea should hand back everything it took from Belka, but I have something to believe in, you know?""All right." Samantha snaps her folder closed and hands you a card. "You pass. If you're truly interested, drop by this address tomorrow morning.""All right..." You say, taking the card. "Thanks.""I hope you see you tomorrow, then." Samantha gives you a little salute before leaving. Ah, well, looks like you'll have to hand in your resignation, then.>Rent a hotel room and turn in for the night.>Call Mom to let her know the news.

Alright, I'll ask because this seems like a relevant thread and the /acg/ on /vg/ scares me.Let's say have no idea about anything in Ace Combat, other than Belka being a bunch of Saturday morning supervillains, squadrons upon squadrons of jets jamming in the DANGER ZONE, and that damned "Yo buddy, still alive?" quote. How do I into Ace Combat? I have a PS3, an XBox 360, and a PSP, and I know there's been Ace Combat games for all three.Where do I begin?

>>35599076Get a PS2.
>>35599076Buy a PS2.Buy 4 5 and 0.Play 4 5 and 0.
>>35599076Go to your friendly local video game store. Buy a PS2. Acquire AC4, 5, and Zero and play them in that order.
>>35599076You go buy a working PS2, Get Ace Combat 4, 5, and Zero. Play them all in that order. Then play six on 360 or PS3.
>>35599103Muh PeaceMuh Bordersand a whole lot of snuggling
>>35599076I'd suggest getting a PS2 and playing through Ace Combat 4,5 and Zero. You could just watch it through youtube, but you don't get anything near the same rush as playing it yourself.
>>35599076Get PS2.Start from 4, 5, then Zero.Never played PS3 title so no comment about it.If, by some miracle you got Ace Combat 3 JP version, play it too.
>>35599104>I think the PS2 games might be on PSNThey aren't.
>>355990764,5 are best.Play whichever sounds interesting after that.Except Assault Horizon. NEVER play that. Ever.
>>35599076Ace Combat 4, then Ace Combat 5, then Ace Combat Zero (if your PS3 isn't backward compatible, I don't care, these are the three you start with). Ace Combat X on the PSP isn't bad but I wasn't a fan of the controls. If you had a 3DS I would suggest Assault Horizon Legacy (which is actually a remake of Ace Combat 2). Avoid the 360/PS3 Assault Horizon.

>>35598548After politely quitting your job as an airline pilot, you rent a hotel room for the night with what few belongings you carried with you. Among those was a laptop, which you promptly used to do a bit on online sleuthing.Apparently, Artemis was one of the many Private Military Contractors, or PMCs, that sprung up after both Osea and Yuktobania slashed their military budgets, causing a whole slew of military bases to be closed, military personnel discharged, and equipment decommissioned. You should know, considering you were one of the many pilots kicked out when the war ended. This pretty much created a perfect storm for PMCs, considering facilities, personnel, and equipment were now all readily available and dirt cheap. Also, as a side effect of Osea and Yuktobania demilitarizing, many smaller nations started feeling a bit bolder about their military aspirations. At the same time, corporations and governments were increasingly finding the need for expendable and easily deniable shock troops for certain missions.Again, it was a perfect storm for PMCs, and many of them, including Artemis, were aggressively hiring.However, from what you could tell, Artemis was a relative newcomer to the market. It only started up as an entity barely two years ago, and was undergoing explosive growth, no doubt from contracts acquired from the Emmerian-Estovakian War.All in all, they seemed pretty legit, at least on the surface. You suppose you'll find out more tomorrow.>Wake up the next morning.>You had that dream again...>Other

Aside from not being on Strangereal, what’s the problem with Assault Horizon? Never played any AC, so honestly curious about this.

>>35598751Aye, now I'm trying to pay attention to three quests at once, and I seem to be failing.

>>35599181Unnecessary game mechanics, uninteresting story, strange chopper missions.
>>35599246I gave up on voting long ago I am just here to watch the train wreck now
>>35599218>It's just a bad game.Remove that stupid action button thingy and AC: AH will be a decent AC title.Decent, not spectacular but good enough for some giggle.
>>35599181For one, it differs enough from the rest of the series that many of the older fans thought it was more of a COD for planes than a true Ace Combat game, which is a valid enough if discussable criticism. It also added in forced actions and a stupid amount of fire needed to kill certain enemies, all so they could show off their awesome graphics. Finally, it was overall meh, compared to many of the other games.
>>35599172>>You had that dream again...Hello darkness my old friend, I've come to speak with you again.

>>35599253More like chopper missions that were fun at first, but just dragged on FOREVER.I really wanted to like Horizon but it's clearly the weakest game in the franchise.
>>35599286It's like five bucks new on Amazon, too.
>>35599172>You had that dream again..>>35599181It's basically Namco making Ace Combat with whatever was popular at the time so you've got yet another war between The US and Russia and DFM mode which was a glorified QTE, both of which pissed off the fans since it felt more like COD than AC.The chopper missions were a nice addition though.
>>35599270Good to see someone else joined for that.
>>35599172>>You had that dream again...THAT DREAM... JAEGARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
>>35599286Legacy was fun. Being able to play Phoenix again...
>>35599181Well imagine that a series had a fun setting which would allow for wackiness without anyone taking offense. This allowed some scenarios like attacking an orbital platform that had laser defense or a submarine that literally caused steel rain.Because Assault Horizon had "realism" in mind you couldn't have that. So no more lasers, super weapons, and definitely no one on one air jousting.
>>35599233Of course! Doing it for the shits and giggles

Outside, you see the vast ocean below you and Sand Island a distant speck in the horizon.Oh god, not this again."Keep flying like that, and you'll get yourself killed." One of your squadron leads says sternly."Aw, lighten up, Edge." Another pilot chuckles. "It's their first combat mission.""Which is exactly why they need focus, Chopper." Edge retorts.

You gain more altitude, and watch as the F-18s swoop down on a few of your squadronmates who are doing strafing runs on the LCACs, putting you on a perfect position to ambush the ambushers. You could try for missiles, which had longer range and stopping power, but there was a chance the Hornets could spot the lock and evade.

>>35600097You try to match the Hornets' dives as you quickly close in, continually trying to keep your nose just ahead of the enemy craft, which were start to level out, no doubt to try and get a missile lock on your fellow pilots. As your instructors always reminded you, always shoot where the plane WILL be, not where they are. You settle your crosshairs just ahead of the trailing Hornet and pull the trigger.Your entire craft vibrates as the cannons bark, sending bullets raining down on the plane ahead of you. The trailing Hornet is shredded apart like paper. You quickly kick your rudder, shifting your nose to the right and bringing it line with the leading Hornet. You let off another cannon burst, punching holes into the Hornet's engines and fuselage. However, the damaged craft is still airworthy, and immediately pulls off from its attack run, heading desperately back for wherever it came from. You settle your crosshairs over the fleeing craft, but you hesitate on the trigger.>Shoot him down.>Spare him.

"I wish there were more pilots like you."Before you can ask her what she meant she pulls away to help another group of distressed trainees. At this point, you knew what was coming next. No matter what you did, you couldn't change it."BURST MISSILES INCOMING!" Your AWACS controller shrieks. "ALL PLANES CLIMB!""YOU HEARD HIM, NUGGETS! CLIMB! CLIMB!" Edge screams.You see the planes of your fellow trainees around you raise their noses in the air as they try to climb out of the incoming burst missile's blast radius. They won't make it. They never did.The blast blinds you seconds before the shockwave and shrapnel tear your F-5 to pieces, leaving just the front half of the fuselage intact and tumbling through the air. Fighting both gravity, G-forces, and your failing vision, you quickly reach for your ejection lever......and wake up in your bed in a cold sweat.After all these years. Even though their frequency lessened somewhat, you still got these dreams from time to time. You check your clock and scowl. You've waken up about an hour earlier than you intended. It was that annoying grey area where you were tired enough to want to go to sleep, but risking oversleeping in the process. Might as well just get started cleaning yourself up.After a quick shower and breakfast, you briefly wonder what to do next.>Call Mom and see how she's doing.>Go visit some old friends.>Better go meet Artemis.>Other

>>35600727Ah well, it was still pretty early, and it's not like the Circum-Pacific War Memorial had set visiting hours. You hop on a bus that headed for the park it was located in. Of course, at this hour, the bus was practically empty save for the driver who just gives you a quick glance before returning his attention to the road. The ride is quiet and fairly short, but you wouldn't have it any other way. You really weren't in the mood to talk or be bothered. You see the all too familiar stop and get off, trudging your way through the park until you finally see the Memorial. It was a relatively simple thing. A large stone wall engraved with the names of every Osean soldier that died in the Circum Pacific War. Up above flew three flags. Two of them were the Osean and Yuktobanian national flags, to signify the lasting peace forged between the two previously warring nations. In the center was a white flag bearing the crest of Razgriz, those mysterious heroes that brought an end to the war.You walk down to the familiar spot that held the names of the 108th Fighter Squadron, your old unit, and one that was virtually wiped out during the war. You were hospitalized after the Second Battle of Sand Island, and by the time you were fit for duty again, the remaining four pilots in the squadron were shot down, so you were transferred. As far as you knew, you were the only survivor."Hey." You say awkwardly to the wall. "I know it's been a while since I last came. Been busy and all that. But, well, it looks like I got a shot to fly a fighter plane again, and I'm taking it."Only silence answers you."Um, anyways, I got something for you guys. It's not much honestly, but this visit was kind of spur of the moment." You take a bottle of cheap whiskey you managed to smuggle out of the hotel and set it at the base of the wall.(cont)
>>35601243By this point, the sun was starting to rise higher into the sky, and more and more people were starting to file in. You quickly shuffle out, accidentally bumping into a young woman."Oh, I'm sorry!" The dark haired woman blinks."No worries, it was my fault anyways." You say apologetically and pause. "Have we met before?""No, I don't believe we have." The woman smiles sadly and continues on her way. You meanwhile call for a taxi to take you to Artemis. As you wait for it to arrive, you turn back to see the woman setting a bouquet of roses down on the wall right next to your own little offering. Could she be...?Your train of thought is interrupted by a loud honk, and you turn to see your taxi has already arrived. Damn, that was fast. You enter the vehicle and hand the driver the card Samantha gave you. The driver grunts, turns on the meter, and sets off.He warns you the drive is going to be a bit of a long one, so you might as well get some rest. Instead, you dial Mom's number. She should be awake by this time. However, your finger freezes over the CALL button, uncertain of whether to go through with it or not. You and Mom never really saw eye to eye...>Call her anyways.>Don't call.>Other
>>35601243You guys called it
>>35601259>>Call her anyways.
>>35601259>>Call her anyways.Look mom, listen, I.. I was offered the chance to do something. Something... big.>Have we met before?Tarin spotted

>>35601259>Call her anyways.>Have we met before?Fancy meeting you here, Edge
>>35601259>>Don't call.Not worth the effort.
>>35601243>Call her anyways.
>>35601282>Tarin spottedMore like Edge
>>35601259>You quickly shuffle out, accidentally bumping into a young woman.>"Oh, I'm sorry!" The dark haired woman blinks.Oh Merc, you be teasin us so.
>>35601282Tarin has the emotional appearence of a rock to all but those closest to her, and that woman gave us a smile.She ain't Tarin.
>>35601259>Call her anyways.Huh. AC:ES Karla spares an enemy. VQM1 Karla spares Jaeger.AC:ES Karla runs into mysterious dark-haired girl. VMQ Jaeger had dark hair....Merc, you magnificent bastard. My platonic love for you has doubled.

>>35601355Or rather mundanely that was Edge in the ending of AC5 in that park, but where was that kid?
>>35601400Blaze might be bringing the kid along later, meeting her there or something.
>>35601259You sigh. Might as well get this over with. She'd eventually call you, anyways. You hit the CALL button and raise the phone to your ear."Oh, Karla!" Mom says with a bit of surprise. "This is rather unusual, you calling me so early in the morning like this. Has something happened?"You pause, unsure if you really wanted to tell her you were into piloting again. She absolutely FREAKED OUT when she heard you got shot down, and even tried to sue the government to get you discharged, which was a whole lot of embarrassment you really didn't need. After that, she was extremely disapproving of you getting into anything even vaguely related to combat.>Tell her about your new job.>Just engage in small talk.>Other
>>35601450>>Just engage in small talk.

>>35601450>Just engage in small talk.
>>35601450"Ah, nothing much, really." You say, laughing to cover up your lie. "The charter company's really been working me to death. Lots of flights springing up between Osea and Yuktobania now.""I see. Well, it seems you're doing well, then." Mom says."Actually, I was wondering how things were doing back home." You say, deflecting the subject back to her. "Oh, nothing much. The money you've sent back is more than enough to live comfortably on, but I'm worried you're sending too much of your paycheck to me. You're still eating regularly, right?""Mom, private charter tends to pay its pilots more than the regular carriers." You chuckle. "Besides, you wouldn't need so much money if you'd actually accept Dad's pension payout.""I told you before." Mom says sternly. "I will NOT accept money from a corrupt government!">Mom, the Belkan government got changed after the Belkan War.>Fine, fine, I won't argue with you again about this.>Other

>>35601686>>Mom, the Belkan government got changed after the Belkan War.I have no idea what the geopolitical nature of this setting is, but if a government is corrupt, I believe it is the duty of its citizens to get their hands on as much of its ill gotten gains as possible. Less money for tanks and bombs and shit.
>>35601686>>Mom, the Belkan government got changed after the Belkan War.Are we secretly pro-Belkan? Cause' I want us to go full on FOR BELKAN CLAY!

>>35601854>>35601838Dictator Belka no.Knight Belka yes.
>>35601854Oh, I'm well aware of that, I was just hoping that we might get a chance to pilot a superweapon. Getting control of the Aigaion or something similar would be all kinds of awesome.
>>35601686>>Other"Mom, I don't care who the money comes from, its dad's pension for gods sake, he would want you to use it well."
>>35601686"Mom," You sigh, suddenly feeling a slight headache, "th eBelkan government got changed after the Belkan War. TWENTY YEARS AGO. Don't you think that's a bit long to hold a grudge?""You've been talking to that Mr. Fleisher again, haven't you? The nerve of that man, putting ideas into my daughter's head-""Mom. Focus." You snap, remembering pretty clearly why you always dreaded talking to her. "Mr. Fleisher has nothing to do with this. Just take the money already. Uncle Aaron has already gone through enough trouble keeping the policy open this long. Do you realize how many strings he's had to pull?""Fine, fine, I'll talk to him later today." Mom concedes. "You know, you really should come back to visit sometime. It's been so long I hardly remember what you look like anymore!">Uh, sorry Mom, I'm REALLY busy right now.>I'll think about it.>Other

>>35601932"Um, I'll think about it." You say."Well, I hope to see you soon then! Ta ta!" Mom says cheerfully, as if neither you had ever gotten into an argument at all.Seriously, parents could be so weird."Yo, we're here." The driver grunts. You look up to see that you're at one of the many decommissioned airbases situated just outside Oured. However, instead of the Oured national flag flying over the base, you see a flag bearing the Artemis logo.The taxi then comes up to the checkpoint leading the base's entrance. A guard comes up to confront you, and you hand him your ID. He briefly checks it against a list and nods at his partner, who opens the gate. You're led to what should be the main administration facility for the base. There, you see Samantha waiting for you. You pay the driver with a generous tip and exit the taxi."Ah! So you decided to come!" Samantha says happily. "Welcome to Artemis' headquarters! If you'd like, I can show you a tour of the base, first!""Um, sure." You blink.>What sort of equipment do you have?>What kind of pilots do you have?>Can I meet whoever is in charge?>Other

>>35602221"Can you show me who's in charge of this joint?" You ask."Why of course!" Samantha nods. "Just follow me!"She leads you into the main admin building and up the top floor, where the office for the Base Commander is usually situated. She stops and knocks on the front door."WHO IS IT?!" A very loud and gruff voice bellows from withing, making the door rattle just from the sound."It's me, Sam." Samantha says. "I have one of the new recruits here.""AW HELL, THEN SHOW 'ER IN!"You just give Samantha a look."He's... very excitable." Samantha chuckles and opens the door. "You'll get used to it."She stands aside for you to enter, and you walk in slowly, to be greeted by an elderly man, with greying hair and mustache, and a very mean looking eyepatch."WELCOME TO ARTEMIS!" The huge man wraps one of his tree trunk arms around you in a crushing hold. "Um, thank you sir?" You croak. "B-but I haven't officially joined yet-""What!?" The man blinks. "Well we can't have that! SAM! Get those dern contract paper thingamajigs up here PRONTO! We got forms to sign!""On it, sir!" Samantha snaps a salute and shuffles off."Oh my, where are my manners?" They chortles. "The name's General Treister, Commander in Chief of Artemis Security's military branch!""Um, nice to meet you, sir." You squeak, clearly overwhelmed by the sheer brashness of Treister's personality."Well, while we're waitin' fer Sam to get back with them documents, ya got any questions about what we do up here?" Treister says with a big grin on his face.>Ask him what exactly Artemis does.>Ask him how good the pay is.>Ask him what his experience is.>Other

>>35602448"So, what exactly does Artemis do?" You ask."HAH! THAT'S EASY!" Treister laughs. "We're in the business of FREEDOM!" "F-freedom?" You pause."No, not freedom, FREEDOM!" Treister corrects you. "One score years ago, I helped LIBERATE Ustio with these two hands and this one eye! And it was AMAZING! Planes flying above going pewpewpew and bombs dropping and going BOOOM, and we LIBERATED THE LIVING BAJEEZUS out of that country! And I thought, FUCK THIS IS AWESOME. IT'D BE REALLY AMAZING IF I COULD DO THIS IN THE FUTURE AND GET PAID FOR IT. AND GUESS WHAT? I'm TOTALLY DOIN' THAT NOW!""What he means to say." Sam walks in with a large stack of papers. "Is that we take job offers from governments and private entities that need military muscle. Only internationally recognized entities, mind you. However, the scope of our duties really isn't all that different from any other military.""I see." You nod and look a the contract. "I just need to sign this?""Yep!" Treister says happily. "Paid by the kill! Prove you've got what takes and you can get access to the best gear money can buy!"Well hell, it's not like you were going to get any other opportunity. You quickly sign the contract."All right!" Treister whoops. "Sam, get her one of them starter planes and we'll get this ball rolling!""Yes sir!" Sam nods. "Come on, Karla, this way!"(cont)
>>35602638>>35602632>>35602614That's it. We're using Malmo MFI-19's boys.
>>35602677Samantha then leads you a nearby hangar. Inside, you see a row of planes..."Aren't these planes a little... old?" You blink. What you saw in front of you was an F-4 Phantom, F-5 Tiger, Mig-21 Fishbed, and J-35 Draken. All rather old aircraft."Well, like the General said, if you want the best we have to offer, you'll have to prove you deserve it." Samantha smiles. "Anyways, all these craft have been upgraded to modern standard, so don't let the looks fool you!"Well, you suppose she had a point there.>F-4: Heavy, fast, heavily armed fighter.>F-5: Light, nimble fighter.>Mig-21: Light, nimble fighter.>J-35: Nimble, fast fighter.

>>35602696>>F-4: Heavy, fast, heavily armed fighter.>>35602859Result of improper training. The US military had adopted a "dogfighting is dead" philosophy, and made it against the rules to practice it. So yeah, when they got into dogfights they didn't do too hot. But then the US military realized the mistake, and took measures to fix it. Those measures worked, and put them back on top. One of those measures is kinda famous. It was called Fighter Weapons School. Maybe you've heard of it?

And then take a look at how they changed when the gun was added.They didn'tAnd then look at the kill/loss when proper training was implementedIt was much better>>35602883Don't forget that the Navy didn't even have cannons on their F-4s and performed way better than the Air Force.
>>35602859Do the words "World's Largest Distributor of MiG Parts" ring a bell?
>>35602883"highway to danger zone".Also, its probable most of Phantom losses also due to SAM, but i'd take Wikipedia with grain of salt.
>>35602899That's wrong on so many levels. A-10 fags are truly the worst.
>>35602696Well, the F-5 certainly had some nostalgic qualities, but it really reminded you of some pretty bad memories. The Mig? Yukeshit. Fuck the Yukes. The J-35? Eeeeeeh, you weren't feeling it with that.The F-4, however, you could easily identify it. Sure, it wasn't the most maneuverable of craft, but it had a lot of engine power and firepower. And it had a well proven combat record."I guess I'll choose the Phantom." You say."Excellent choice." Sam nods and looks behind you. "Oh, and it looks like your wingman is here! How fortunate!""Hm?" You turn around to see a girl hardly older than you were, in a flightsuit signifying that she was a pilot."Hey there!" She gives you a wide, friendly grin. "Looks like we'll be flying together from now on, huh?"Yep. Emmerian. Definitely Emmerian.Dear god what did you get yourself into?>And that's it for tonight! I have to say, this was a pretty great start for a quest, and I really enjoyed it. I might run the next thread on Tuesday afternoon like I used to do with Gundam Build Fighters, but Friday will definitely have a thread! Don't forget Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and PJ Witches on Sunday!
>>35602899a design that makes sure that the plane can take godlike damage and can tear through soviet tanks?...sorry his is that bad design? cause it looks ugly...wut?
>>35602913The Israeli Air Force?They did it with a mix of Mirage IIIs and F-4s, even before they got F-15s and F-16s
>>35602928Helluva starter thread there, Merc.
>>35602928Lara!Thanks for running, Merc! I had a blast! I'm looking forward to the next thread!
>>35602928Will we get a co-pilot for our Phantom or are they just "The Guy who sits in the Back"?
>>35602928Thanks boss!....all-female unit confirmed then?
>>35602928Thanks for the thread Merc, you might want to manually update the sup/tg/ archive quick before the thread dies
>>35602928>Dat gunbuster poseThis is getting better and better!So twice weekly then?
>>35602933Think you meant to reply to >>35602802
>>35602696>>F-4: Heavy, fast, heavily armed fighter.More bomb, more guns, more fun!
>>35602947I always tried to imagine what the person in the back was thinking of whenever doing typical Ace combat stuff (i.e. Taking down Stonehenge, flying through narrow cliffs, etc.)
>>35602928Awesome new quest, Merc, with both new and old stuff to look forward to next time. Thanks for the flight!
Man, the early full scale mockups of the Phantom looked fucking awesome, a pity they had to go and hit it with the ugly stick.Pic related is the original single seat mockup
>>35602970At first?"You gonna be shitting me!"Later?"....eh, fuck. Whatever dude."
>>35602981pic related is the 2 seat mockup
>>35602981What paint job should our Phantom have? All I know is; Shark Teeth.>>35602970"....At this point in my career, why am I even surprised you're trying to fly so close to the ground..."
>>35602933>Godlike DamageIt can protect its pilot from 23mm AA guns, but it can and has been shot up and removed from the game by them. Further, its heavy armor is outdated and only protects against small arms and SPAAGs, not the real threat, SAMs. Further, by going low and slow it decreases its survivability tenfold. That's why they were the most damaged and lost craft of Desert Storm and why they were pulled away from the front.By going low and slow, the A-10 puts itself in the range of MANPADs and AA guns. If you instead flew at altitude like a regular plane, you are above their fire completely.>Tear through Soviet TanksOnly by virtue of the Maverick Missile, not the GAU-8, which has been able to reasonably destroy tanks for the entirity of its existence. The Maverick is better suited on a plane that isn't raped by an enemy IADS.
>>35603001Yellow on black/grey
>>35603014>>35603001Crap, now we need an emblem too....Oh well, wait until doing something awesome then make the emblem.
>>35602962what is that from? I see that so much
>>35603012The A-10 is great if you're up against people who don't have real military hardware to work with.Of course, if you think that's all we'll ever be fighting, you deserve to be the first who dies at the front line against a properly equipped military.
>>35602970Huh. Best example in media that I can think of, for co-pilot that wasn't just the guy in the back would be Razor on SWAT Kats.I can't think of another actually noteworthy example. Best I can think of are the handful of 'was a bro, had a family, died. Nooooooo' types, but that's been used enough to be stale.
>>35602947Most of the stuff a 2nd seater would normally handled is now largely replaced with more advanced avionics, like the data-link and electronic support systems.
>>35603030>EmblemI propose valkyrie helmet
>>35603050Bow and Arrow for Artemis, the Huntress.
>>35603030>>35603050Well first we need a squadron name or a nickname before even getting an emblem. Once we get that, we can build upon it.
