Your previous sortie to draw out the Kasnans to find their Nimbus launch facility had been a success, though the largely mercenary force tasked to do it took some rather heavy casualties. Some had been lost to the Nimbus volley, while most were shot down or damaged when they charged the Kasnan planes head on. Fortunately, your own squadron, as well as Alpha and Delta were relatively unscathed.However, the carrier was still bustling with activity, as the mission wasn't over yet. With the Nimbus launch facilities known, stealth bombers were being sent to take it out, and the mercenary squadrons still had a role to play.(cont)
>>37427572"As you know, using radar as well as spy satellite footage, we have managed to determine the location of Kasna's Nimbus launch facility." Samantha points to a grainy satellite photo of a large military complex. "However, you won't be going anywhere near it. That's the bombers' job. You will all be down here."The screen then scrolls to the south, where there were multiple colored circles dotting the landscape."Even though the allied forces are sending stealth bombers, the moment the base is hit, Kasnan forces will be sent out to hunt for them. Your job will be to neutralize and suppress Kasnan AA defenses and airfields here, opening up an escape corridor for the bombers. This is also going to be a night mission, so I hope you've got good eyesight or are used to flying by instrument."Ah, well, that wasn't so bad. You've flown a number of all nighters while you were a civilian pilot.Samantha then pauses to look at the gathered pilots."Bravo, you did good the lions' share of the work last mission, so I'll give you first pick on assignments.">Top cover.>Airfield raid.>Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses>Other

>>37427667Why is Amy butt naked?
>>37427813Can't you see the collar?
>>37427813She's wearing a flight suit.
>>37427813she's in her flight suit pal.
Guess what i've finished reading this week.And i thought karla will dead on the end. Huh.>>37427813One-piece coverall pilot suit.
>>37427869Gotta love Wrenloft's rolls...
>>37427869Haha congrats MF, I knew me yelling at you to do it would pay off.
>>37427869What a ride, right?
>>37427869Stop.Staph.I cannot hold these feee-uuuuuckkk
>>37427869Congrats on finally reading it, welcome to the club!
>>37427869I may not have followed VMQ, but this made me d'awww.Good work.
>>37427869Nope. That one roll changed it all.Personally I would have put in the younger versions of Jaeger and Karla since they were the ones who were in love."So why me Karla?""What""Why did you choose me. I mean you arrived at Artemis and almost immediately you came after me.""I don't know. It just kind of felt, right in a way. Like it was meant to be, or that I was about to miss out on something great.
>>37427869Also, now Jager looks like Speirs.
>>37427986IIRC merc has used pics of spiers for Jaeger before. Specifically pic related.
>>37427986Jager is based on Speirs, afterall.>>37427974...that could work. But adult Jager and Karla is more easily recognizable. >>37427893You and him both. But clearly it was Dice God himself want to toughen Fallyn with all of that rolls....heh, maybe i should try VMQ interquel quest based on Feddies Tanker, throw them some bones hahahaha.
>>37428065Yeah, I know man. I was just telling MF that his Jaeger looks closer to Ron now than he did before.
>>37428089>But clearly it was Dice God himself want to toughen Fallyn with all of that rolls.Actually I think that was Merc not wanting to kill her off, but what do I know.
>>37428089It also tried to tell Lucas to become a freakin' scout!
>>37428089True. Recognition is important.
But thanks god i am not following VMQ2 live, i know i will be very obnoxious about tech level. And too bad you guys not even consider to use extra Model 4 given to us on VMQ1. But yeah, finding good crew for them will hard.
>>37427586"I feel like lighting up an airfield." You grin. "It would be a nice change of pace shooting something that doesn't move fast.""Ground attack? Awwwwwww." Lara pouts."What the hell are you talking about? Ground attack is awesome!" Amy counterpouts. "Girls..." Lilian shakes her head."All right, you got airfield duty, then." Samantha says, putting things back on track. "Delta will take care of SEAD and Alpha will provide top cover. Bravo, we've got multiple targets, so we've got some target priority take care of."The screen then zooms in closer on the image, showing a single long airstrip."This is airfield is designated Whiskey. It's a single strip airfield, but it has Kasna's most advanced fighters, mostly F-15s, but possibly F-22s as well. It's also got a top line AA net, making it tough nut to crack, but considering the planes being kept here, Command considers it a priority target."Samantha then switches to another airfield. This one was simply massive, with three runways."This is Zulu. This one is practically the linchpin of the region's air power. It's got lots of planes, but a lot of them are older model, mainly being F-16s and F-4s. Also, even though it's a lot larger, the AA defenses are a bit thinner because of the greater area they have to cover, so it's a bit softer than Whiskey. Now, I don't have to remind you that with the timeframe we're dealing with here, we only have time to hit one airfield before the other can start scrambling fighters, so it's important to decide which one to attack">Attack Whiskey>Attack Zulu>Other

>>37428400Nonono that's FIVE hangars, scattered throughout inconvenient missions.
>>37428419See, Whiskey, being a top-level airfield, might be holding the avionics.
>>37428329In ACX, which takes place three years after ACQ's timeframe, the XFA is actually pretty low-tier, being unlocked at around the same time as the fucking F-16.It should be "in b4 Apalis"

>>37428452But so could Zulu, because it's got so many planes defending it.
>>37428275>Attack whiskeyFinally caught up.
>>37428546I dunno man, it's too top-heavy, with a limited AA complement.I figured they'd stick high-value parts in an area with more AA and advanced air cover.

>>37428275"Whiskey sounds like where the money's at." You say."All right, Whiskey it is." Samantha nods. "I don't have to remind you all to be careful and don't be stupid, so come back alive, all right?""Hey, so this is gonna be your first night mission with us, huh?" Wolf grins as you head for the door. "Scared?""Hardly." You roll your eyes. "Makes things more exciting, really.""Heh, not a bad answer." Wolf chuckles and turns to Lara. "Hey Lara, you need any help, just call us in and we'll take care of everything!""As if." Lara smiles and shakes her head. "Don't blame me if you guys get bored up there.""Ooooh, that stings."As Lara and Wolf trade banter, you wonder what you should do next.>Head to the hangar and prep for takeoff.>See if Quint has anything to sell.>Other
>>37428766>>See if Quint has anything to sell.

>>37428943Not effectively. Radar won't work because they're on the ground, IR is dodgy because the plane probably isn't hot enough unless its on takeoff.
>>37428943>Only having 6 missiles>Not a warhead capable of leveling a city block and/or hangarYou are aware of what a mud mission consists of, right?
>>37428943Or we can bomb them (or the runway) to bits before they become an AAM problem.
>>37429017>>37429012Guys, you do realize that ace combat mechanics are in play right? You can easily splash parked planes with 6AAMs here.
So this was my most recent captcha. What the fuck?
>>37429056It's confirmed: Moot hates you, anon.
>>37429056This is why I didn't refund my pass.
>>37429047I thought we were using planes and mercs mechanics not Ace Combat mechanics.
>>37429117We use rolls like in P&M but otherwise, it's pure AC.
>>37429117....Now that you mention it...I think we're using Planes and Mercs for rolls, while everything else, from loadout, avionics, to capabilities are Ace Combat stuff.Someone refute or confirm this.
>>37429117We're using Merc's Custom AC-ish mechanics(TM).
>>37429170Everything but rolls are Ace Combat based, last I checked.
>>37429179Uh yeah confirmed since the first thread anon.
>>37429198 Meant to link to >>37429117Also, this is after AC5, correct?
>>37429198That's what I was trying to say.
>>37429220AC6, actually. Thus the talk of Nimbus.
>>37429220After AC6, Lara is AC6 veteran IIRC
>>37429239Gotcha. Thanks for the clarification.
>>37429220Correct. We fought in AC5. This is also after AC6.
>>37429220More specifically, this takes place one year after AC6, hence why our last mission was about baiting out some Nimbus launchers.
>>37429220I don't suppose meeting one of the Razgriz on the ground is an option?
>>37429269We already did.
>>37429269We're near Usea right now, so it's unlikely.
>>37428089I thought the dice gods wanted to kill her but she refused to die.
>>37429269We did run into Edge in the 1st thread, though Karla didn't recognize her as such.
>>37429269Well technically we met and flew with all of them when they were Wardog.
>>37428766You break off from the main group and head down the hangar deck, where Quint has set up temporary shop, selling all sorts of goodies and knicknacks there were either difficult or near impossible to find on a ship, like candy bars, luxury toilet paper, and alcohol. Seems like he was turning a tidy profit too, judging from the large stacks of bills piled on his makeshift desk."Ah, Karla! Come to do some shopping?" Quint grins."Yeah, maybe." You nod. "What have you got?">SHOP LIST: http://pastebin.com/TRJicPLh>Total Funds: 15300>Do you make any purchases?
>>374293264AGMs or 6AAMs anyone?

>>37429326>Self Forging Fragmentation Submunitions Bomb (SFFS) - 5000Just the right tool for the job and cheap to boot.
>>37429326>Self Forging Fragmentation Submunitions Bomb (SFFS) - 5000>>37429416If you want to multi target why not just destroy the entire area instead?
>>37429452True>>37429416Changing to buy SFFS.
>>37429374>SFFS>goodEnjoy watching your munitions harmlessly explode around your target.
>>37429326>SFFSSounds like just what the doctor ordered.
>>37429326Also ask how much a SU-35 Super Flanker would cost
>>37429476Fluff says they home in on armor, unlike the dumbfired variants most AC games sport.
>>37429511The AC6 ones homed in. IIRC
>>37429326>Dat MacroDamn, now I want to see Sabrina and Abra in a Vampyr. Or Red and Pikachu in a Falken
Question- who else here has AC music playing while doing this?
>>374293266AAM plenty o' firepower!
Why the SFFS is the best optionhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmFwPyfEAWo
>>37429362>>37429531You realize that we have not actually ever purchased Anti Ground munitions yet right? We just recently purchased AA missiles too
>>37429527Someone say AC music?>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avWcpRymkZo
>>37429326Okay, so just for confirmation, you want to purchase the Self Forging Fragmentation Submunitions Bomb for 5000 credits?>Y>N
>>37429527I've got classical music going right now since I'm watching gunsmithing porn.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUXoNUzAyvk
>>37429326Rockets are an excellent choice that can really wreak lines of parked aircraft and leaves us with money. Failing that I shift my vote to fuel air bomb. And we only have standard dumb bombs available for ground why would anyone upgrade aam?
>>37429640because grounded planes can be locked on by ata munitions in acverse.
>>37429640If only we had the delta wing. We could have dual rocket pods.
>>37429658ahh makes sense
>>37429658As can UGM. The fact stands that we don't have any AG weapons besides dumb bombs.
>All those responses within a minute of posting.
>>37429733Al least we don't have to worry about samefagging.
>>37429711yes and?we're attacking an airfield. the fastest way to clear it would be multiple salvos of as many missiles we can loose at the planes. the 6aam would allow us to potentially take out 8 planes on the first run.
What loadouts will the rest of the team be using?
>>37429827Oh, good question.
>>37429798they are also 2x as expensive as the SFFS. and overlap with our previous purchase of the XAAM>>37429841Deltawing. We can take Rocket Pods and FAB so why choose? we can have rockets AND fuel!
>>37429798That's a valid point, but an actual ag munition or missile can take out entire rows of parked aircraft or hangers. It was always fun murdering airfields or just general ground forces in Ace. Not arguing as the decisions already made just putting my experiences with the game in there.
>>37429841Go home Young, you're drunk on R-Stoff.
>>37429827Lillian and Lara are flying Air Superiority fighters, so they'll have AAMs.Amy's got a Warthog, so she'll have that big gun and either Rockets or Fuel/Air Explosive Bombs.
>>37429871It'd probably be better to outfit the warthog with AGMs and let it handle AA emplacements.
>>37429326>>Do you make any purchases?Custom order> Pixy's F-16 wreckAT LEAST GET A QUOTE
>>37429920I wonder how much a Su-37 would cost...I really liked Yellow 13.
>>37429920Man, for a relic like that, I bet Quint will rack up the quotes.
>>37429581>SFFS purchased!>-$5000>$10300 remains"I'll get the SFFS system." You say."Ooooooh, good choice. Nasty little bastards, those are." Quint whistles. "Ground attack mission?""That's right." You nod. "Should be a big help.""Well, I'm glad to be of service." Quint nods. "Good luck out there, and be sure to make some money!""Yeah, so I can give it to you, right?" You roll your eyes."Of course!" Quint chortles.However, as you head back to the hangar, you already hear what sound to be an argument brewing. "HELLLLLLL NO!" You hear Lara bellow. "No way your bringing that stuff anywhere near my bird!"Sighing to yourself, you walk in to see Lara standing in front of a cargo cart carrying a load of bombs, blocking its way to her Eagle. In front of her stood Smokey, Amy, and Lilian."Come on, Lara, stop being so childish about this." Lilian sighs. "This is going to be a big ground attack mission, and we're going to need all the munitions we can get!""Yeah! Can't have you piggybacking on our work!" Amy grunts."Nope! NOOOOOPE! Not a pound for air to ground!" Lara shakes her head rapidly. "That's how I've always rolled and to hell with trying to change it!"Ah, guess you shouldn't be surprised a rabid fighter ace like her was reluctant to groundpound."Thank god you're here." Lilian sighs. "We suggested putting some bombs on Lara's Eagle, but she's having none of it. Can you please talk some sense in her?">It's Lara's plane. She can load whatever she wants.>Lara, come on, quit being a crybaby.>Other
>>37429909But that's what we're running SFFS for, isn't it?
>>37429938About 80,000, looks like.
>>37429581Merc how much would an SU-35 or SU-37 cost?
>>37429984>>Lara, come on, quit being a crybaby.
>>37429967Well, we can only hope that our nation-sponsor will be generous after the mission.After all, repairing the damn thing to museum levels is gonna be expensive, and might as well just offload it and park another f-16 in there...Everyone who wants a delta wing should want a delta-wing on pixy's plane.
>>37429984>>It's Lara's plane. She can load whatever she wants.
>>37429984>Lara, come on, quit being a crybaby.>whisper in her ear>You'll get a reward after, promiseAlso,>Not a pound for air to groundWHERE'S MUDHENFAG WHEN YOU NEED HIM
>>37429984>It's Lara's plane. She can load whatever she wants.No sense not having an A2A plane to mop up patrols or anyone who gets airborne.
>>37429984>Lara, come on, quit being a crybaby.>"Lara, how else are you going to do anything or be useful on this mission? You planning on using your gun to destroy the entire airbase?"
>>37429863so? QAAMs are meant against single elite targets. 6AAMS are built to take out chaff and lots of targets. you're comparing two different tools built for two different purposes. what matters is whether we have the right tool for the job.>>37429866point on that but that mandates a single route to catch them all in a straight line. predictable and potentially deadly. whats more its likely a single dice roll which can fuck things up. 6AAMs affords us the flexibility to come from any direction and make use of cover. for everything else, theres the ubiquitous UGMs.
>>37429984>Lara, come on, quit being a crybaby.Besides, those AAMs can really tear up the planes trying to take off.
>>37429994Those are more appropriate for taking out parked aircraft.>It's Lara's plane. She can load whatever she wantsWe may as well have someone outfitted for ATA. In case anything makes it off the runway before we can get to it.
>>37429984>Lara, come on, quit being a crybaby.More shit dead on the ground less shit is in the air.
>>37429984>"Having some AAMs would be good for the planes that make it up and the ones still on the ground."
>>37430054Yeah and right now we need an AGM tool.
>>37429984>It's Lara's plane. She can load whatever she wants.Probably good to have SOMEONE prepped for A2A just in case.
>>37429984>>37430060Forgot to link.
>>37429984>>Other"Look, lara, you can save your money-makers for whatever you want, but there's two ways I see this playing out.Either the enemy scrambles planes off the ground ,or they don't. If they do, we're going to be REALLY glad you're carrying air to air to cover us. They have nimbus missiles, who knows what else they're packing. There's always a chance someone trips and early radar site, or one of the other strike wings doesn't get a total clear.But if you they don't scramble, you might be coming home empty handed. Its up to you. I'd trust my gut, though."
>>37429984>>Lara, come on, quit being a crybaby
>>37430128Pretty much this. It's good to have a 'just in case', really.
>>37430073honestly munitions that require lining up are not as efficient as a multi missile systems in clearing air fields.
>>37429984>It's Lara's plane. She can load whatever she wants.
>>37430047ahaha, oh this
>>37430169Lucky for us we bought something that homes in on targets in an area.
Random note: We've been shutting Lara down a LOT, I've noticed. I'm paranoid, but I'm worried that'll eventually come back to bite us or something.
>>37429984"Oh, hey Lara, do you want MORE MONEY? Because if you don't, I'll happily take your cut...? (IN BED)"
>>37429984"It's Lara's plane, she can load it however she wants." You sigh. "Besides, we might need an air to air loadout.""Hmmm, I suppose." Lilian sighs. "I guess the rest of us can pick up the slack, then.""Pffft, fine. More kills for us." Amy shakes her head and saunters off to her A-10. "Hey, thanks a lot, Karla." Lara grins at you. "You really helped me out there.""Eh, I didn't do much." You shrug. "But seriously, thanks, Karla. I owe you one." "If you say so." You shrug.>Ask her why she's so insistent about staying air to air.>Head to your plane and prepare for takeoff.>Other

>>37430812What was awesome is that Char was rolling 19s so we were getting by the skin of our teeth.
>>37430916Speaking of Merc Command as a waifu, anybody got the Moesona of Merc that was made by Decu?
>>37430916Would you like to elaborate, fellow youkai?
>>37431084Decu got drunk one day and started making moe versions of a bunch of QMs. It was thoroughly entertaining. Merc's was this.
>>37431148Seems to be accurate.
>>37431148You still got a copy of the one with Ghost and Inquis?
>>37431190I've been trawling the archives to find just that one.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/28785732/
>>37431265If it helps you along, bro, it could be found in either Ghost's archives, or Merc's PJ threads.
>>37431287Oh, not that. The one I posted. If anybody wants to get that one they can, but I'm busy shitposting in qtg.
>>37430402"Hey, if you don't mind me asking," You speak up, "why is it that you're so insistent on staying air to air?""Ah, well..." Lara frowned. "The thing is... I'm kinda afraid of using them.""Afraid?" You blink."Yeah, during the Liberation of Gracemeria, we were expected to engage ground targets. I was packing AGMs and started engaging targets, but my first shot, I don't know why. Maybe my targeting computer was off, or there was some malfunction with the guidance system, but for some reason the missile went of course and plowed into a house. Was scared to death that I just fragged a family.""Shit, really?" You gasp."Well, found out later it was empty at the time, but FUCK, I was scared outta my mind." Lara sighs. "I decided right then and there ground attack munitions weren't for me.""Damn." You breathe. "That's pretty fucking heavy shit.""It is." Lara nods, and quickly shakes her head and forces a smile. "It's all ancient history now. Let's focus on the mission, yeah?" "Right." You nod. As you head to your Falcon, you steadily think to yourself. It seemed more and more that Lara wasn't exactly the bubbly, carefree girl she always seemed to be. Fuck, she seemed to be hiding a lot of baggage from that war. Then again, you're not too different from her either, in that respect. It seemed kind of odd really, both you and Lara opting to stay in a profession that's caused you so much grief in the past. Then again, fighter pilots weren't exactly the smartest of people. (cont)
>>37431337You flight takes off in the middle of the night, heading for Kasna. Your Falcon, loaded down with your new SFFS load, screams through the night."Now, I don't have to remind you kids to kill your running lights when we get near the coast." Wolf says cheerfully. "Don't want the enemy getting a visual on us, now do we?""Yeah yeah." You grunt. "Have fun babysitting us.""Maybe I will!" Wolf grunts."Bravo, this is Delta One." You hear Delta's flight lead speak up. "We're going to be beginning SEAD runs shortly. Do you want to make a run on Whiskey before or after?"You think about this for a second. If you moved in before Delta did, you'd have the element of surprise and could hit the base before the AA systems could be fired up. Then again, if you went in after Delta, the AA systems would activate, meaning they'd be much easier for you and your squadron to detect and engage. Really, it depended on whether you wanted to thin out the airfield's defenses first or just skip straight to the juicy bits.>Attack before Delta does.>Attack after Delta does.>Other

>>37431688Almost immediately, cannon fire erupts from the trees in your direction. Their radar lets them know which way you're coming from, but they haven't quite had the time to adjust their aim. A stray burst punches a few holes in your left wing, causing your Falcon to shudder.>-2hp>7hp remainsGrunting, you hit the bomb release and release your SFFS bombs. Dozens of bomblets seed the forest and you see numerous explosions light up the darkness as AA vehicles and emplacements are demolished.Meanwhile, Amy's A-10 fires off streams of rockets while Lilian's Typhoon begins dropping bombs, adding to the destruction. Lara's Eagle swoops down, sniping away the emplacments you miss with her UGMs. The weapons in your sector fall silent, but you can see more tracers in the air as you get closer to the airfield.>Proceed to bomb the airfield.>Continue taking out the AA defenses.>Other

Amy says as she veers her A-10 to continue to roll up the line of AA batteries.As you crest a line of trees, you see that you've come at the perfect time. With the alert raised, you can see the airfield's planes were being mobilized, being pulled out of their hangars in preparation to launch.Well, you can't have that. From your guess, you can see at least twelve F-15s, and, JACKPOT, six F-22s all stuck on the ground and vulnerable!Those were some mighty nice planes.

You curse to yourself. You've now just wasted valuable seconds that the Kasnans could use to get their birds in the air. "Nice run, butterfingers." "Shut up, Magnet."

>>37433529Shit. Meant to put>when we end up
>>37433529When mother Belka calls, will we answer?
>>37433545>>37433502Nah, we're sticking by their side, with or without artemis.>>37433558Fuck no.
>>37433558Anything for our mother country!
>>37433558GLORY TO BELKA
>>37433558Nope, we'll hang up and unplug the phone.
>>37433407Your two missiles streak out into the darkness and disappear. At first, you're not sure if they managed to successfully track or not, until you're rewarded with a nice, big explosion, temporarily blinding you."Excellent shooting, Valkyrie!" Lilian cheers you on. "He never had a chance!""Yeah, uh, thanks." Amy says."Wolf, Stripes, how are you doing?""We got both our targets down." Lara announces."All flights, this is Loki. The bombers have successfully exited hostile airspace. Disengage and return to base." Your AWACS instructs. <<MISSION ACCOMPLISHED>>Kills:F-22 Raptor: 2000 x 5 = 10000F-15 Eagle: 1200 x 5 = 6000AA Battery: 200 x 5 = 1000Total = 17000Total Treasury: 27300"Dang, that was easier than I thought." Lara says. "Well, we did have the element of surprise." Lilian explains."Good job, everybody." Samantha says. "It appears that we're the top performing company tonight!""Does that mean we get bonuses?" Amy asks."Hell no. It just means you can inflate your already bloated egos." Samantha laughs. "Anyways, with their Nimbus facility gone, I doubt Kasna is going to be much of a threat anytime soon."Somehow, you weren't quite convinced. As you and you flight made their way the coast where the Raven was waiting, you couldn't shake the feeling that one way or another, you'd be coming back to island eventually...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and PJ Witches on Sunday!
>>37433558No, it would be pretty out of character for Karla to do that.
>>37433558NoBuddies and Husbandos First, everything else is secondary.
>>37433558Only if Glorious Mother Belka is not joined at the hip with blind Idealists and extremists who think a world with no borders is the future.
>>37433594Thanks for the run, Merc. Be seeing you next time!

>>37433594Thanks for running!
>>37433594Thanks Merc.>you couldn't shake the feeling that one way or another, you'd be coming back to island eventually...SOMETHING OMINOUS THIS WAY COMES
>>37433594Thanks for the thread!
>>37433594Thanks for the run merc!
>>37433594>27300 in the TreasuryI would like to announce that we can get the Tomcat.
>>37433594Thanks for running boss.So anons, who else wants to sell our F-16 and buy the SU-27 right now? Because I know I do.
>>37433640Or we can wait a bit and get an SU or F-15.Just imagine the VARIANTS
>>37433519You know, instead of a Kancolle quest, I think people should run an Arleigh Burke-Class Destroyer Quest.Where MC can either be the XO, Navigation Officer, or Weapons Officer.
>>37433619Seriously. Gotta go for the flanker. One more good mission and we can get it. Or even now with a trade in.
>>37433640Uhh anon, we already planned to either get the Eagle or Flanker, we're not going for the tomcat.>>37433655You remember we can sell our current plane right? It's how we managed to afford our F-16.
>>37433657I'd play it.
>>37433659>>37433664Kinda wanna keep the Falcon as a "Back Up" just in case.
>>37433569You know I wouldn't be surprised if Belka is getting setup for a war and we end up finding something that points to that or Jager finds it. Either or. Anyways, Artemis will side with whoever giving out the biggest payday, which isn't Belka, so where does Karla land?>>37433619>>37433647Fuck the SU-27.
>>37433640You should do this. For reasons.
>>37433655>>37433659I say we trade in and get the Flanker right now.
>>37433677>Fuck the SU-27.How about yes, we should make love to Jager on top of it.Seriously as good as the Eagle is, the Flanker has better variants and more upgradability,.
>>37433677Karla lands with The Three Ships Alliance, of course.Either them, or Razgriz. Or maybe Londo Bell?>>37433669>Roll to evade six-torpedo spread>Roll to hit hostile ship at maximum range of Harpoon>Roll to allow Shore Leave or not
>>37433684>those canards destroying its bodies lift capabilities straining the wingsWhoever designed that is a retard. That design would fly as well as a brick, limited lift over the inboard sections of the wings and the body itself as well as a heavily disrupted airflow into the engine intakes.That's a stupid design, looks cool, but wouldn't fly cool.>>37433677The -27 just has more and better options than the -15.
>>37433701>How about yes, we should make love to Jager on top of it.>Seriously as good as the Eagle is, the Flanker has better variants and more upgradability,.I think we should do the smart thing, and wait till end-of-campaign to see the planes available. Also scope out potential upgrades for later-tier planes.
>>37433686I agree, as much as I would love to get the Eagle for those beautiful upgrades, I want a Terminator eventually, and goddamn that thing is sexy.Su-27 for me, besides we can't bring the same plane as one of our squadronmates, it would clash.
YF-23 or bust!Although really, an F-35 wouldn't be bad. Straight upgrade from where we are.
>>37433737>Also scope out potential upgrades for later-tier planes.We can't do that until we actually buy them anon.the -15 and the -27 lead directly into the late tier planes, their best variants are the pinnacle of gen 4 fighters.I'm salivating at the thought of a Terminator, though the price would be huge.>>37433756The Widow shall be our end game plane.
>>37433766>We can't do that until we actually buy them anon."Oh hey jager, what kind of options does your raptor have? I'm thinking of saving up"
>>37433756>Although really, an F-35 wouldn't be bad. Straight upgrade from where we are.No it wouldn't be bad at all. It would also be 60,000...We'll trade in our Falcon then get a Flanker, then build dosh for getting Widow-chan.
>>37433766Is it bad I also want to have a different Widow?
>All these people voting for Flanker>Not saving up for Glorious Belkan-Made Morgan/FlankerWe have the funds for fully upgrading our Falcon, which will set us up for anything that isn't just us vs. and entire squadron of AC superplanes until we get our own superplane.
>>37433782Why the fuck would our boyfriend know? He's not the guy we buy shit from you idiot. Also Merc doesn't tell us when we ask, he waits for us to get the plane first then reveals upgrades when we have the plane and want to upgrade.
>>37433799*Aeronautical sigh*Falken, not Flanker
>>37433798whynotboth.jpg>>37433799>which will set us up for anything that isn't just us vs. and entire squadron of AC superplanes until we get our own superplane.No it won't, we're already running into enemies that are a match for our Falcon, and the upgrades don't add a lot of extra capability to it.The upgrades don't warrant the cost and longer amount of time it would take us to afford the next tier of plane.the Flanker is a much better option.
>>37433800>Also Merc doesn't tell us when we ask, he waits for us to get the plane first then reveals upgrades when we have the plane and want to upgrade.Which is stupid as hell if you ask me. We can ask the damn Shop NPC. You know the guy who sells all that shit. Fuck.>>37433811>any from of actionStop that.
>>37433799We kind of need a plane that can compete with them to get the cash to buy a superplane anon, our Falcon has served us admirably, but it can't keep that up forever and upgrades won't help as much as you think they will, one adds a second SP, the other gives us slightly more agility, both of which are not what we need in an upgrade.We need a all round faster and tougher plane with the same agility or better, which calls for an entirely new airframe.>>37433829>Which is stupid as hell if you ask me. We can ask the damn Shop NPC. You know the guy who sells all that shit. Fuck.It is stupid, and we have tried asking, didn't work.
I think we should keep the F-16 around just in case. With the kind of cash we make, its not a bad plane to have around just in case we need a backup plan.Also, whether planes of a higher cost get multiple weapons stock, or they need ADDITIONAL xl upgrades to unlock that on top of the base cost.My top votes are as follows:Pixy's Plane - if we can unlock it somehow through influence and sidequests - with later-applied XP+Delta upgrades. We can improve upon a legend, given the cahnce.TomcatFlankerSave for stealth, upgrades, better weapons, loss-of-plane situation.You go to scramble with the plane you have, not the plane you want.>>37433800Question: What does jager fly?
>>37433824>Special Sortie>Karla at the stick of a late-war Widow>Lilian is radar operator>Amy is gunner>Dogfight with MiG-21bis>.....>SMALLTIME.gif
>>37433864>Question: What does jager fly?He doesn't fly anything, but he will ride us.
>>37433864>Question: What does jager fly?He's a groundpounder.
>>37433879fuck.I meant wolf
>>37433864>Question: What does jager fly?Jager's a footman with the Asset Protection unit.
>>37433864Pixy's plane would cost as much as a F-35 or more, we're not going to be able to get it.The Tomcat is just a worse plane to the Eagle, why would we want that?The Flanker has more upgrades and longevity than the Eagle, its the logical choice.
>>37433904>Flanker has more longevity than the EagleBull-fucking-shit.
>>37433886Wolf flies a Raptor, we've know this since the first thread.>>37433891And he does a great job protecting Karla's 'assets'
>>37433886He's a raptor driver, IIRC.
>>37433917>Wolf flies a Raptor, we've know this since the first thread.Yeah, yeah, thats what i was getting atAsk wolf for raptor unlock mentoring.
>>37433864>TomcatIt's not even comparable to the upgrades and variants the F-15 and the Su-27 can get.I do love the Tomcat as its cool as hell and holds a special place in my heart, but the Su-27 is all round a better bird.
>>37433923>Ask wolf for raptor unlock mentoring.Why? We have the F-22 unlocked, it costs 80,000
>>37433944Kek, he probably wanted to ask how to jack a raptor.>>37433917>protecting Karla's 'assets'Too bad Karla has him too flustered.
>>37433974>Too bad Karla has him too flustered.When we next see him, we ask him for help getting out of our cockpit, then we jump into his arms and drag him off to our room.
>>37433944Dumbass.There's the plane, and then there's the tweaks for the plane. Which we don't get until we buy it. Which sucks. shit like the delta and xl, you know? We want to see what we're getting into.Shit would totally suck to get a raptor, then find out it only carries one weapon.and we're being dinged up another 20k to mount two.and we sold an f-16 to pay for a weapons downgrade.You see what i'm getting at?
>>37433917Oh please I'm pretty sure her assets has been plundered before.
>>37434005>You see what i'm getting at?No, because you didn't even hint at any of that, you just said >Ask wolf for raptor unlock mentoring.And you call me the dumbass when you can't be bothered to explain yourself and think we're psychic.
>>37434007And? That just means we know how to best treasure him.
>>37434005Only dumbass here is you anon, that was uncalled for when he called you out on your stupidity.
I'll just leave this here.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uulNyuV0DM
>>37434113>>37434081see >>37433766 >>37433737>>Also scope out potential upgrades for later-tier planes.>We can't do that until we actually buy them anon.What exactly did you think unlock mentoring meant? Pilots, can't read for shit, just full throttle all day erry way. Get some situational wareness nuggets.
>>37433917Do her assets need protecting?
>>37434157>unlock mentoring meant?I thought it was the babbling of a madman. It really had no meaning. If you wanted to say something, you should have said it instead of saying some meaningless thing. I'm not even one of those two.
>>37434158they need support.
>>37434157what >>37434179 said, you made no sense at all and that point has already been addressed, we need to buy the plane to see what upgrades we can get.
>>37434187They should call their local AEW&C Operator for support then.
>>37434187and oh so much more care and attention>>37434157>What exactly did you think unlock mentoring meant?that has literally no meaning at all in this context
>>37433917isn't there job to plunder and steal loot?Will Jaeger be the first to plunder the Belkin treasures?
>>37434253I don't think Jager would go that low.Especially NOT from his homeland.
>>37434265Well Karla's treasures.
>>37434253With how predatory Karla is towards him? It would be the other way around with Karla stealing Jager to plunder him.
>>37434300Well, that depends, if he goes the Lupin route or not.
>>37433904>The Flanker has more upgrades and longevity than the Eagle, its the logical choice.The Terminator and S/MTD are both on the same level in Strangereal, so not really. It does have more upgrades, but they're all pretty samey. Besides, Karla already stated she doesn't care for Yuktobanian fighters.>Well, the F-5 certainly had some nostalgic qualities, but it really reminded you of some pretty bad memories. The Mig? Yukeshit. Fuck the Yukes.
>>37434308Karla seems to do a strong facade either flirty or stoic.
>>37434317But anon, think of the our squadmates faces when we turn up in the same plane for the party? It will be disastrous, we need to wear a different dress.Also theres a point where slavshit stops being slavshit and is just a good product, the Flanker is that point.
>>37434317Terminator mai waifu, also the S/MTD has no gun, and we are all about dakka
>>37434342Flanker is alright, but the Eagle outclasses it.>>37434359The gun exists in a different location. Plus Ace Combat.
The Flanker is just plain sexier than the Eagle. Deal with it.
>>37434370>The gun exists in a different location. Plus Ace Combat.Well unless you've turned up some magical variant we've not heard of, the gun would not be in the plane at all, it would be in a gunpod, which removed a few of the advantages of the S/MTD variant.>>37434370>Flanker is alright, but the Eagle outclasses it.They are equivalent.
>>37434370>but the Eagle outclasses it.No it doesn't. When you compare a 15E to a naked 27, sure, but thats like comparing a Flanker C to a naked Eagle.
>>37434370>Flanker is alright, but the Eagle outclasses it.In real life maybe, but in this quest they are equal, have a look at the shop pastebin, the Flanker is slightly more agile, but they are equal apart from that, though I imagine the Eagle has maybe 1 point more health if there is any other difference between them.
>>37434384>They are equivalent.>>37434394>No it doesn't. When you compare a 15E to a naked 27, sure, but thats like comparing a Flanker C to a naked Eagle.>>37434402>In real life maybe, but in this quest they are equal, have a look at the shop pastebin, the Flanker is slightly more agile, but they are equal apart from that, though I imagine the Eagle has maybe 1 point more health if there is any other difference between them.Real planes aren't even close. Avionics alone makes the Eagle the clear winner. In quest, probably no real difference.
>>37434380I disagree, but you are entitled to your own WRONG opinion.
>>37434447>Avionics alone makes the Eagle the clear winnerIf you compare a modern Eagle to a modern Flanker they are equal in that aspect, only time the Eagle's were better was before they started making the modern variants of the Flanker.
Missed it huh? Guess that's what I get for sleeping in the one day I'm actually allowed to.Ah well, great run anyways, wonder if we'll see any more planes on the shop next Sat
>>37434380At the end of all of this, when we retire and get married to Jaeger, I want to have a Su-34 so we can go on trips wherever together and have that awesome 2 person compartment in it.
>>37434462You know who else flew Eagles? 8492.You don't wanna be those guys, right?You know who else flew Flankers? Ofnir. Gelb.You wanna fly like those guys, right?All the cool kids are flying Flankers. Don't you wanna be cool?
>>37434497>Don't you wanna be cool?You're right we should get an Eagle.
>>37434468Wrong. Dat AESA radar, man. The RWR on the Flanker is also reportedly not the best. And the upgraded Eagle is fielded in much higher numbers than the mere handful of upgraded Flankers.
>>37434519>And the upgraded Eagle is fielded in much higher numbers than the mere handful of upgraded Flankers.That matters how?
You know, i already have something in my mind."Hey Jager sir!""What is it Ramirez?""Look what i found here!""...neat? Get Hel plant some demo on it""whoa whoa sir, don't you wanna take it?""what for?""For Miss Karla, duh""....she already fly those jets, Ramirez""For her job, yes. With this she can fly for leisure.""i don't know...""and maybe you can have your date on sky, just two of you, alone""What are you waiting, Ramirez? Help me figure how to bring this with us!"
>>37434528As in only a handful of Flanker variants are even close to the F-15, which is fielded in much higher numbers, nearly universally better. I'm not talking about F-15Es or weird NASA prototypes. I'm talking bog standard.
>>37434497Ofnir's flight lead used an Eagle, though.
>>37434566Yes, but how does that matter in comparing which is better? Numbers don't matter in regards to that, we don't care which has been fielded more.
>>37434574An Eagle without a gun.
At this point I think we've just devolved into "My planefu > your planefu"
>>37434589In Strangereal, everything has guns.
i wish i had more ace combat related shitpost fodder
>>37434592But anon, no one debates that the Berkut is a piece of shit and the Raptor is vastly better.>>37434602I'll wait for confirmation from Merc for that before believing it.
>>37434592This was bound to happen. We still have the knife fight over F-22/T-50/Su-47/YF-23 to look forward to. And if Merc lets us choose our superjet, expect the biggest shitstorm of our time.
>>37434602And in ACQ we know absolutely nothing about a plane before purchasing it.
>>37434629you mean the Stealth/Fast debate between the Raptor and the Widow, because the others are shit.personally I want the Widow.
>>37434639The Widow is stealthier, faster, and has superior avionics. Raptor can dogfight better.
>>37434629Honestly I think Merc ought to just leave it to the dice gods.
>>37434633Dude, this is Ace Combat. The fucking F-117 has a gun.
>>37434654Widow-chan best cheesecake fighter.
>>37434673widow a shityou a shitsu-37 best superfighter
>>37434711It's not even a 5th gen.
I had no idea people even liked the Widow.
>>37434737Widow a best.>>37434711Both are nice girls anon, we get Flanker-chan, then we can have Terminator chan, then we can get Widow chan.
>>37434791RIP in peace, Canadian dreams.
>>37434797>tfw stuck in the yankees back pocket
>>37434828Best pocket to be stuck in. The Arrow died because of budget issues, just like most other good projects.
