Apparently, Artemis had been contracted to help the struggling country clear out a bunch of separatists. You really didn't know all that much about the country, besides the fact that it had just come out of losing war with its neighbor, Emmeria. Also, you found out that Estovakia was GODDAMN COLD. You figured it was mostly because it was nearing winter, but also because the country was located pretty far to the north. You shivered under your flightsuit as you trudged outside to get some fresh air. Samantha had informed you that there was going to be a mission briefing soon, but you still had a little time before then.>Read up a bit on Estovakia.>Talk with one of your wingmates.>Head for the briefing.>Other
>>35738286>>Read up a bit on Estovakia.Time to read up on politics and recent events.
>>35738286>>Read up a bit on Estovakia.
>>35738286>>Head for the briefing.>>Read up a bit on Estovakia.
>>35738286>>Head for the briefing.
>>35738286AC Quest!>Head for the briefing.Alright, Let's get this Briefing Started.
>>35738286>Head for the briefing.
>>35738286>Read up a bit on Estovakia
So what exactly makes one an "Ace" in Strangereal?I mean do we have to shoot down at least 5 planes like in real life, or do we have to do something imposssible/take down a superweapon/defeat numerous enemies single handedly/etc.?
>>35738424Probably the 5 planes.
>>35738424Generally, you're considered an ace if you score 5 aerial kills. However, to be a TRUE ACE, you basically have to turn the tide of an entire war singlehandedly. So, it's no big deal, really.
>>35738286>Read up a bit on Estovakia.>Head for the briefing.Read while heading to the briefing.
>>35738472this, walk & read
>>35738286>>Read up a bit on Estovakia.Time to brush up on good ol' history.
Everybody's waitin for ACQ to update while I'm here admiring Gyanko.
>>35738808Mah, GBFT has all the best girls.
>>35738424To be an ace, you just need five bandits shot downTo be an ACE, however, you need to be a one plane air force that singlehandedly curbstomps every hostile force we come acrossCourse, since this is an Ace Combat quest, we'll be both by our 3rd sortie, at the very least
>>35738818Callin it now... GBFT HAREM END by master domon
>>35738286You decide to read up a bit on Estovakia as you head for the briefing. You stop by the admin building, where you pick up a combat primer giving you a basic summary of Estovakia's history. Apparently, Estovakia was one of the nations that got hit very hard when the Ulysses asteroid hit the planet. Large chunks of the asteroid pretty much demolished much of the country. In the aftermath, the government essentially collapsed, leading to multiple factions rising up to try and fill the power vacuum. Eventually, a group called the Generals assumed power and put the entire country under military rule. They enjoyed wide support from the army, and the transition of power was swift and brutal. Afterwards, the Generals looked to prop up their still ailing economy by invading their richer neighbor, Emmeria, starting the Anean Continental War. However, that was a whole different story.What mattered was that despite early success, the Estovakians lost the war badly. The army (or what was left of it) subsequently overthrew the Generals and handed power back to the people. Now the new government was busy trying to rebuild the country, while large chunks of the country either broke off to form their own nations or otherwise stubbornly refused to recognize the new government. The most problematic were forces still loyal to the Generals that occupied much of northern Estovakia, as well as the eastern islands off the coast.Also, it appeared that Yuktobania was funding this expedition. Apparently the Yukes had some fairly close ties with Estovakia before the Generals took over. You didn't really appreciate doing the Yukes' dirty work, but you were ultimately just a middleman. (cont)
>>35738876What are the chances it will come to this, with an MC that's more dense than Reiji?
>>35738471Good thing Strangereal has a new War every damn week.It's like the asteroids released some sorta chemical in the air that makes people think declaring war for no reason and building giant aerial carriers is a good Idea.
>>35738885Finally, you reach the briefing room, where quiet a number of pilots and personnel have already started to gather. However, the actual briefing hadn't started yet, and clearly not everybody was here. You could see Samantha at the front of the room, checking her watch regularly. You could also see Wolf and couple other pilots you didn't recognize at one of the back corners. You didn't see anybody from your flight, though.>Wait for your wingmates.>Talk with Samantha.>Talk with Wolf.>Other
>>35738912>>Talk with Samantha.
>>35738912>>Wait for your wingmates.
>>35738912>>OtherScour the place for wingmates
>Wait for your wingmates.Our girls first>>35738910The fact that nuclear proliferation is basically nonexistent also helps
>>35738912>>Talk with Wolf.
>>35738912>Wait for your wingmates.
>>35738945>The fact that nuclear proliferation is basically nonexistent also helpsThis, a thousand times this.This is also a part of the reason why I hated Jormungand's ending so much.
>>35738912>>Talk with Wolf
>>35738912>Wait for your wingmates.>>35738910Hey you can't blame everything on the asteroids. At least half of those wars before the meteors were because of Osea and Yuktobania having a dick measuring competition. That's not even mentioning Belka either.
>>35738912>>Talk with Samantha.Are we gonna buy our own Scinfaxi?
>>35739029Vergultung Mk. II never
>>35739029Inb4 we have one, and probably an aigaion, some hresvelgrs...
>>35739015I'm wondering how the hell people find the time, manpower, and money to build this kind of crap...I mean, what would you do if you found out your military was using your tax dollars to build an Excalibur Laser System and accompanying satellite array?
>>35739057Well duh, how else is Artemis gonna become the BBEC>>35739078Could be worse, they could be using it to fund the F-35
>>35739078Shrug and carry on with my life. Glory to Belka.
>>35739078To be honest, I'd think it'd be pretty cool...
>>35739104>Could be worse, they could be using it to fund the F-35Mate, we've been through this. The F-35 doesn't suck.
>>35739104>Could be worseMeh, Leasath sent those f-35's during their assault on Aurelia
>>35739078Give them more tax dollars of course.For one, that shit's awesome.For two, are you gonna fuck with a government that has an Excalibur or SOLG?
>>35739078Could be a lot worse, at least multiple nations build Stonehenge.I'd probably be up in arms if the government was building Megalith.
Fifteen bucks we're gonna see Ramba Ral in this universe.
>>35739133No, but it is an overpriced, overcomplicated, resource hog that should have been scrapped in favor of upgrading the current inventory
>>35739078http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strategic_Defense_InitiativeElect whoever came up with the idea as the next president.
>>35739185But anon, Reagan's dead
>>35739176But it IS the upgrade in the inventory. You cannot keep the planes we have forever. Planes have a lifespan. The current planes are at the edge of their lifespans.So the US decided to upgrade instead of stagnate. Following an extremely expensive program, the planes themselves are competitively priced with their competitors, and are in fact cheaper than several of them which offer far less.As for overcomplicated, Sprey pls go.
>>35739105This man has the right idea.
>>35739171In the middle of a battle, Ramba Ral forgot to DANCE WITH THE ANGELS>>35739176To be fair, we are in need of new stuff. But jesus, whoever put the idea of "one platform to do everything" in the heads of the Pentagon needs to be shot. Repeatedly. Then rezzed and shot again.
>>35739078I'd give them more money and vote to reelect whatever madman decided to greenlight his project.I mean, it's a fucking Giant Laser/Flying Aircraft Carrier-Battleship/Anti-Orbital Railgun System.If my nation built shit like that I'd be proud of it, not just because the research and techniques involved in the construction would put us at the forefront of the technological race, but mostly because it's freaking awesome.
>>35739282>In the middle of a battle, Ramba Ral forgot to DANCE WITH THE ANGELSfuck yooooou
>>35739282The two platforms can do anything is more of what is done currently. And that's pretty much what we already had. High-Low system, do you speak it?
>>35739282>>35739304M'Quve abandoned Ramba Ral never forget
>>35739225If the lightning's the upgrade we need, then I want my money back.We would have been better off tuning up the current planes(S/MTD Hornets and falcons, anyone?) so that they can remain effective until the 2040's or so when 5th gen planes aren't so prohibitively expensive>>35739282This.If there's anything the US should have learned from the Phantom and Aardvark, it's that making a plane capable of adequately servicing the Air Force, Marines, and Navy is just plane impractical.
>>35739282>>35739304And when he's not flying, he has a sweet, sweet ride.
>>35739395Nice PUNditry you got there boss.
>>35738912You decide to wait for you wingmates to arrive, which actually doesn't take that long. Both Lilian and Amy arrive first. Lilian gives you a smile and wave, while Amy only gives you an acknowledging grunt. Jeez, and you thought your fellow Belkans could hold a grudge."Where's Lara?" You ask."Probably sleeping in, like always." Lilian chuckles. "She basically lives in the simulator, so she doesn't actually get all that much sleep.""Sounds dangerous." You frown."Oh, don't worry. She won't let anything hamper her ability to fly." Lilian smiles. "It's the one thing she lives for."Huh, is that so..."YES, I'M NOT LATE THIS TIME!" Lara cries as she bursts into the room, only to get hit in the face with an expertly aimed whiteboard eraser."It's six seconds past 0800." Samantha glowers. "Now get seated."Lara sighs as the rest of the assembled pilots chuckle at her expense, and she takes a seat next to you."All right, now that we're all here." Samantha shoots one last glare at Lara before turning to the projector screen. "We will be beginning the briefing for today's operation."Samantha hits a remote, bringing up a map of a mountainous region."This is one of Estovakia's northern provinces." Samantha explains. "There's a lot of rare mineral and ore resources in these mountains, which make a big chunk of Estovakia's imports. Unfortunately, they're controlled by General loyalists. Not only are they using the money from these mines to fund their rebellion, but these facilities are absolutely needed if Estovakia is going to recover economically.""So how are we going to attack?" One pilot raises his hand. "That looks like rough terrain."(cont)
>>35739459"Correct. Because of this, the main assault force will be inserted from the air." Samantha nods. "The assault will occur in two waves. The first wave will be Yuktobanian paratroopers who will be airdropped to secure landing zones. The second wave will be a combined force of both Yuktobnian and our own soldiers, who will arrive via helicopter and proceed to secure the objectives. Because these are airborne troops, they can't bring a lot of heavy weaponry with them, so they're going to be heavily reliant on air support. Delta flight will be tasked with providing CAS for the troops.""That's all well and good." You see a pilot who you assume to part of Delta flight raise his hand. "But me and my boys are all ground attack planes. Are there enemy air assets in the area?""We don't expect there to be any serious aerial threats." Samantha shakes her head. "Your biggest thread will most likely be ground based AA systems. However, Bravo flight will be tasked with providing air cover for you. Alpha flight will be kept in reserve just in case. We'll be launching in two hours. Your flight leads will be provided all the necessary data and flightplans. Does anybody have any questions?">I have a question. (specify)>Proceed to the hangar.>Other
>>35739395Have you heard of the F-15 SE Silent Eagle?
>>35739484>>Proceed to the hangar.
>>35739484>>Proceed to the hangar.>>35739395The only argument you could make is for not cutting the order of F-22s, but that had nothing to do with the F-35 program's expense.Okay, let me ask you this: Do you like the F-16? The F-35 is a super F-16. Except it is much better than a simple upgrade, because it was designed from the ground up to take advantage of these capabilities. 5th gens aren't prohibitively expensive. The programs are. And if you wait until the 2040s to make them, you're a generation late, as that's when 6th gens will start showing up. That'll get you killed. If the F-22's any example, the next gen has a HUGE advantage over previous gen stuff. I'm sorry you don't want to be the best.>>35739492A shit for its price.
>>35739484>>Proceed to the hangar.Sounds good.
>>35739484>Proceed to the hangar.
>>35739484>>Proceed to the hangar.Time to check out loadouts
>>35739484>>Proceed to the hangar.>We don't expect there to be any serious aerial threatsLike hell we don't.
>>35739484Load up 2 more 20mm gun pods please.
>>35739555But anon, intel is always right!
>>35739548No Napalm or UGBs please. We have enough ground attack already.
>>35739524I just hope our current Gen are as tough as our older planes. >Flashback to the one winged f-15Goddamn that's a great plane.
>>35739574Gunpods a shit. You only need one, and missiles are more aerodynamic and add more capability.
>>35739395To be fair, the Phabolous Phantom, F-16, F/A-18 and to a lesser extent F-15 proved that a multi-role aircraft is not an impossible dream. Though, two of them lucked into it by virtue of big engines=good.No, my problem is and always has been the B model. If the MUHREENS are that in need of their own aircraft, then it would have been just as easy to design and build a dedicated V/STOL aircraft than it is to try and squeeze that capability into a design for the other two services, ESPECIALLY one that you're planning to export to countries that may not even need V/STOL capability.That being said the F-35 will probably be a decent aircraft. But for all the money spent and time spent, it should be a damn sight better than "decent"
>>35739575Principle of Military Intelligence:>If we say one thing, believe in the opposite
>>35739484>Proceed to the hangar.ok so Lilian and Amy both have good air combat jets, Lara jet is more of a ground pounder, and our aircraft is somewhere in-between right?
>>35739607The B model is a huge part of why the program exists, and is one of the biggest benefits of it. It allows for smaller carriers to launch planes. The power projection it will give to the US and its allies is insane.
>>35739578Napalm bomb is ready! Eh heh heh heh.
>>35739641I know anon, I know. So we should probably expect most of the remaining Generals air-force to come hit us.
>>35739645The F-4 can do anything you need it to, really.
>>35739654>Not going for Long Range Air to Ground Missiles
>>35739654WE'RE GOING TO RUIN SOMEBODY'S DAY!!
>>35739645I think you got Lara and Amy confused there.
>>35739680yeah names are not my strong suit
>>35739671>Not going for Air Launched Cruise Missiles
>>35739665I'd hate the Stovies in these parts to have Nosferatus right off the bat.Also F-15 S/MTD's.
>>35739606Haha. Missiles a shit in this quest. We have marry sue missiles apparently. But we have only ever used our guns. With another two gunpods we could've downed the f-22
>>35739692>>35739671>Not going for QAAM'sI kid.
Since we're Belkan, 'murrican planes or Soviet?
>>35739484>Proceed to the hangar.>>35739524And since the programs, are expensive, the planes also have to be expensive to recoup the costs.>6th gen by 2040sSeeing as how the 4th gen lasted half a century, and is still doing it's job, I doubt the armchair generals are gonna be that willing to drive their countries into debtAnd comparing the F-16 to the F-35 is a terrible argument, because the Falcons biggest plus was that it could fill a variety of roles at a low price, while the Lightning is just as expensive( and, in the case of the B variant, EVEN MORESO) as the Raptor, making it a terrible choice compared to a full squadron of Falcons, since you don't have to drive your country to bankruptcy with the latter
>>35739705If they did that would just be cheating. We lucked out when we hit the F-22, I don't want to hit something that high up the food chain again any time soon.
>>35739752The SU series seems a belkan favorite.
So general consensus last thread, is that if there's nothing better we'll try to get an F-16s. The question is: which variant?
>>35739752Murrican. We already said we hated Yuke/Stovie junk.
>>35739767Then again, our AO is basically an ore mine.I do believe their war miners already took in enough gold for at least a flight of those Vampyrs.
>>35739781That's 'cause Sukhois are the go-to bag guy planes of the 21st century>>35739799Desert Falcon, since it's basically a leaner, meaner Fighting Falcon
>>35739649Allies, maybe. US? Hell no.Also, that's all well and good. I have nothing against V/STOL as a concept.But it's fairly unrefined as is, and it wouldn't be unusual to have teething issues.What they (that is, LockMart) SHOULD have done was run a V/STOL aircraft program beside a CTOL/CATOBAR program to develop a better F-16.As a bonus, if either program got fucked for some reason, than the project as a whole is not too big to fail.
>>35739813>>35739799XL delta arrow or bust
>>35739813Mein Belkan.>>35739832Also mein Belkan.
>>35739820Not sure they have the tech base to make more, seeing as how they only had one of the really great ones before you trashed it. And there's selling war material, then there's selling war material like that.
>>35739837America benefits the most from the B variant. You know LHDs and the like can only launch the B variant, right?
>>35739813>>35739840Delta wing a shit When it's not on a europlane, those babies wear that with STYLE.
>>35739875Good point.>>35739906Muh RAFALE M
>>35739484Nobody speaks up."All right, you're all dismissed!" Samantha nods. "Bravo and Delta flights, report to your planes and prepare for takeoff. Alpha flight, remain on standby. Good luck to all of you.""Oooooh, it's your first mission!" Lara slaps you on the back. "You excited?""I guess." You shrug stoically.Lara frowns, as if you didn't give the reaction she wanted or expected."Hopefully you'll be able to get some kills." Lilian smiles."Hah, fat chance. I doubt we'll get any enemy planes on this mission." Amy huffs.The four of you then reach the hangar set aside for you. Lara, Lilian, and Amy's planes already look to be loaded and ready to go. However, Smokey waddles up to you."I got all your UGMs loaded, but I was sorta wondering what kind of secondary weapon you wanted to load." The old mechanic wheezes, obviously not at home in this cold weather. "I already know the other girls' preferences...""What do you have?""For a Phantom? And at your reputation level? Mostly just low tech stuff." Smokey grunts. "Gotta buy licenses to use better weapons, since you can only earn my money by being good. You get my drift?""Yeah." You sigh. "So what can you get me, then?""Well..." Smokey leads you to the adjacent hangar, where the munitions were being held. "We got Unguided Bombs. Not very accurate, but they're cheap, easy to use, and make a big bang when dropped. Anti-Tank Guided missiles for precision hits against heavily armored targets. 4AAMs which can lock on to four airborne targets simultaneously. And napalm which doesn't do that much damage in the big scheme of things, but is a REAL good area denier. Only got room for one of these, so choose well.">UGBs>ATGMs>4AAMs>Napalm
>>35739899But it wouldn't really improve our power projection as a whole.Because really, when was the last time the marines were deployed without either a carrier or an airbase in range?
>>35739941Frenchie run home.Eurofighter strong
>>35739950>>NapalmI LOVE THE SMELL OF NAPALM IN THE MORNING
>>35739950>4AAMsMerc, how do you plan on handling missles?RL-like or AC-Style I-Have-80-Missles?
>>35739950>>NapalmUNLEASH THE FIRESTORM>>35739963AND MUH MIRAGE 2000-5
>>35739950>>NapalmOkay this is a guilty pleasure.
>>35739951It increases our power projection potential. Plus, it frees up our carriers to do other things. Once the NGJ is completed, the Marines would not have to rely so much on CV support for jamming and the like.
>>35739950>Gun podsBecause fuck you Stovie scum.
>>35739899Which is why the Lightning would have been better off being just the navy's genfiver, instead of having to be shared with the chairforce and jarheads>>35739950>NapalmThe best part of waking up>>35739941>>35739963Ladies, ladies, calm down, you're both the best at what you do and looking good while doing it
>>35739950>>4AAMsDelta is there to provide CAS, not us.
>>35739950>4AAMswell we are being put on this mission to take down any aircraft that show up to ruin Delta's day if any do show up so might as well prepare for it.
>>35740045A phantom without napalm is like a fragile A-10, a disgrace to it's family
>>35739950>>ATGMsJust in case.
>>35740045Man I wish we really had napalm tipped missiles like those in generals... I loved spamming MiGs because of that.
>>35740017the USN is the worlds second largest airforce. If the CVs aren't free then we are either fighting aliens or WWIII has started and the end has begun.
>>35740045This is what happens when you go full belka>>357399504AAMs
>>35740031But LHDs practically are Marines. That's their entire point. Allowing the Marines to be less chained is a good thing.
>>35740072But area denial isn't our mission, you nog. Our mission is to kill planes.>>35739950>4AAMs
>>35739950I'm going to go with>Napalm
>>35740081>or WWIII has startedMy point exactly.
>>35740097>Not dropping napalm on the planes and watching them burnisthisbelkanserious.png
>>35740097>Our mission is to kill planes.So, kill the planes with napalm.
Rolled 6 (1d20)I roll to compromise with>4AANapalmMs
>>35740120Or dropping them on Flying Battleship engines
>>35740119And then everybody realizes the F-35 is useless after all and should've made more subs
>>35740153The F-35 will be the best multi-role on the planet. Hardly useless.
>>35740153>Should have made more subs.I spy a russkie.
>>35740183And will do a single thing: get nuked.
>>35740096Isn't the whole reason the marines want the F-35C being that they want a replacement for their aging harriers? In that case, why didn't they just make an independent program for a VTOL jet instead of making the Lightning even more costly, both time and money-wise>>35740183Best? LikelyMost practical, hahaha NO
>>35740222If the nukes start flying, all is not lost. And even if it was, the WW3 does not mean it will be nuclear. You need to go talk with OPpenheimer over on /k/, this shit is his job.
>>35740236>F-35CBBecause the Marines don't have a fucking budget. Every one of their programs has been axed.
>>35740249think he meant that the f-35 would get blown out of the sky
>>35740249But the F-35 most certainly would be. True, war does not necessarily mean nukes but a world war is total war.
>>35740313And what makes you say that? Because if you're saying the F-35 won't do shit, you're saying every other plane won't do shit.
>>35740349Yes. The purpose of nearly all aircraft In a nuclear war is to get blown up. I'm just stating that it would be to expensive in a non nuclear war and useless in one.
>>35740275Eh, just say the VTOL is for the ArmyIt would be easier to pass, and the Airforce would pop a mega aneurysm, so everyone wins
We should take all the funding for the F-35And split-dump it into>VF-1 development>Aigaion>Space colonies
>>35740405>Plan MURRICA, FUCK YEAH
>>35740405Don't forget freaking NASA, they're one of the most underfunded for what they do.
>>35740405>>Aigaion>>IRLMy brain is saying no. My heart and my penis however scream yes YES YES!!!
>>35740394And I'm saying you're flat out wrong.>>35740396Army can't have fixed wing. They were offered the A-10 years ago and declined, giving up that chance forever.
>>35740405>LockMart in charge of developing AigionNOPE. I'M OUT.
>>35740430Don't worry man, the cool dudes and dudettes will administer the entire "Souls escaping the pull of gravity" space colony program!
>>35739950"Let's go with air-to-air loadout, just in case." You say. "Load up the 4AAMs.""Gotcha!" Your crew chief nods and turns to his crew. "LOAD UP THE AAMS! GET MOVING, WE GOTTA GET THESE BIRDS IN THE AIR PRONTO!"You watch as the ground crew wheels the missiles across the icy tarmac and start quickly loading up missiles. Meanwhile, your wingmates are all already going through their preflight checks, so you had some catching up to do. Once the ground crew are clear, you being powering up your engines to warm them up."Bravo Flight, Delta Flight, this is Tower. You are clear to take off. I repeat, you are clear to take off.""Copy, Tower. Bravo flight out." You hear Lara say."Copy, Tower, Delta flight out."You see Delta flight slowly take off. A pair of A-10s and a pair of F-111s. Definitely dedicated ground attack. Even though the F-111s were classified as fighter-bombers, you've never seen one do well in an actual dogfight.Your flight is next to take off, and you all begin heading north to the area of operation."This is Loki. I'll be your mission control and AWACs support for this mission." You hear Loki's familiar voice. "The paratroopers are already on route. Delta Flight, move in and sweep for any enemy fighters or AA assets. The AO is an internationally recognized no-fly zone, so you are free to engage any unidentified aircraft."(cont)
>>35740467"Roger that, Loki." Lara says. "You hear that, girls? Weapons free!"You can't shake the feeling that Lara sounded WAY too happy about that."Okay, so how about this." Lara says. "Angel and Magnet will sweep the ground for AA. Me and the Nugget will stay up high to provide air cover."Well, that was nice and all, but that felt very reactionary. You check your map again. The immediate AO was too rugged for airfields, so any potential air assets would have to come from further north. Sure, you'd be farther away from Lilian and Amy, but you'd be in a position to intercept enemies long before they could be a threat to them.>Hold position above Lilian and Amy.>Move a bit further north to intercept potential hostiles.>Other

I'd like to float a proposal, against my better judgement. If it ever comes time to grab a fighter-bomber, it should be an F-105.Because reasons.

>>35740405The world would might not become a better place, but it would be much more awesome if people stopped funding stupid things like the F-35 amd funding the really important shit like Heavy Command Cruisers, Giant Lasers and Arkbirds.That just shows that Belka is the best country with its priorities set straight.

>>35740496You decide to follow Lara's lead, staying behind and off her right side as you both orbit the area. Down below, you could see Lilian's Typhoon swoop down to bait potential AA systems. And of course, your radar starts picking up contacts as active radars try to track her, leaving them open for Amy to swoop with her A-10, pumping the forest full of vulcan fire and missiles. Scores are trees are knocked down in the aerial assault, and you can see the telltale sign of munitions cooking off as missile batteries are hit."Pfffft, amateurs." You hear Amy scoff. "Lit up their radars against the first plane they saw."However, Amy's strafing run seemed to convey the proper message, and no more AA fire appears. A few minutes later, you see a formation of 4 C-130s fly over the mountains, disgorging their troops.""Paratroopers have been dropped." Loki announces. "Delta, be prepared to provide CAP. Bravo, assist Delta any way you can, but remember you priority is to cover them."You then see a pair of F-111s screech over the forest, dropping cluster bombs into the forest north of the landing zones, no doubt to clear out any enemy infantry hiding in there. "Hey, Nugget, can you check something for me?" Lara asks. "I'm getting some intermittent contacts northeast of our position, but I can't make it out. Can you confirm?""Sure thing." You say as you fire up your radar.>roll 1d10 (ID Test. Need to roll a 6 or lower.)

>>35741279As much as I like that, but I think that may be intruding on the whole Razgriz theme since they are rather similar.

Mordred too similar to Morgan for a callsign?
Blaze Crashed!(imagining the awesome cold war fighter MOBA that they keep refusing to make so they can make more garbage like HAWX)
>>35741534Thematically, yes. But then again, Morgan was used to refer to a plane, not a person.
>>35741534>MordredYeah, sorta.Why don't we use a Scotts-inspired callsign/nickname instead?
>>35741534Can't we just go with Valkyrie?
>>35741556I vote Scathatch as our callsign.
>>35741556,We should go with a fairy theme.Why? I dunno, but it could be awesome.
>>35741552KID RESPOND! YOUR TOO YOUNG TO BE A SMOKING CRATER!
>>35741583Okay, I almost read that incorrectly....
>>35741556Dunno what you would use from Scotland as a callsign or whatever, other than something like Jacobite or Highlander.

>>35741428At first, you almost miss it. A shadow there, a bit of movement here, but Lara spots it first."Bogies, three o' clock low!" She yells.With a frame of reference, you bank your fighter and crane your head in the indicated direction. Sure enough, you can see about four to six shapes in the mountain mist. Those had to be pretty brave bastards, flying low to the ground like that."I think I god an ID on them." Lara says. "I think... Mig-17s?""Frescoes? Shit, I didn't think they even made those anymore." You blink."I know, right? Must be desperate." Lara replies. Looks like they didn't even have radar, either, considering they didn't appear to even know you were following them. Shit, these things were ancient. Even your Phantom could stomp all of these guys."It's too easy." You grunt. "It's gotta be a trap.""A real bad one." Lara scoffs. "C'mon, have at 'em, Nugget. That's enough down there to make ace.""Really?" You gasp."Wingmates gotta look out for each other, right?" You could almost swear Lara was winking at you."Still, it seems like cheating." You mumble, still not comfortable taking Lara's charity."A kill is a kill!" Lara continues to beckon you to take the shot.>Take them out.>Hold off and see what they're up to.>Other
From last thread,Wild Card was suggested.
>>35741639Our plane's nowhere near loud enough for that to work
Here's a crazy thought. How about we just our wingmates come up with the nickname and leave it at that.

>>35741743>BooI like it.
I think I came up with something our enemies call us...The Nightraven
if I had to guess the MIGs are either a probing attack to see what we have at our despolsel or the felt that since most of our aircraft (aka delta) are mainly meant for air to ground strikes they could throw some cheap planes at them and cripple them enough that they wouldn't be able to brake there ground defenses letting them stop our ground troops.

>>35741927maybe us and the whole team will only get shit roles and one of those MIGs will only roll 1s and completely destroy us. Our first rival. hey it could happen.
>>35741927Because we're in freaking Ace Combat Quest, where somehow missiles keep magically appearing, because they're "Universal mini missiles" and take all the calculations out.
>>35741969I run out of missiles in ace combat all the time.
>>35741963We still have to roll for missiles, so that makes no sense>>35741969Doesn't change the fact that we're a better shot with our guns than with missles
>>35741941I was dropping a reference/hello at the qm, who I know from an old quest. I will gladly stop namefagging, and start reading up in order to properly contribute.

>>35742036If you play on the harder difficulties it takes 2-3 missiles to drop someone.. .they also tend to have a fuck load of hostiles.

>>35742190...I guess that's going to be a thing now.
>>35742086Four of the boxes around the Migs go red, signifying a lock. You hit the trigger and four missiles launch off your Phantom's wings, streaking out at the Migs. Three Migs immediately go down in flames, crashing into the forest below. Unfortunately, your fourth missile loses its track and nosedives into the ground. Now realizing something is up. the three remaining Migs turn sharply. One advantage the older Migs had was that their lower speed gave them a smaller turn radius. You grit your teeth as you turn to reengage when you hear Loki's voice."Contacts coming from the north! I'm counting eight bogies coming in fast! Possible mix of fighters and bombers!""This is Bravo Two, I'm moving in to engage." You hear Lilian say. "I'll hold them off as long as I can.""Shit." Lara curses.Now it made sense. These Migs weren't a trap, they were a diversion to tie you down while the real attack force moved in."Nugget, we gotta go!" Lara yells.If the both of you went now and hit afterburners, you stood a good chance of heading off those bogies. However, it didn't sit well with you to leave these Migs alone. Even without missiles, their guns could still cause a lot of damage to the ground force.>You go ahead. I'll finish these guys off.>Right behind you.>Help me mop these bastards up, first.>Other

>>35742256>Right behind you.We follow our wingman, downing the remaining Migs does us no good if the real threat breaks through.
>>35742256"Right behind you." You say, turning your Phantom to follow Lara's Eagle. "Hit it!" Lara yells as she hits afterburners and you do the same. Your Phantom's engines roar as you're pressed into your seat from the acceleration. The Migs, with no hopes of catching up to you, are left in the dust."Loki, Bravo One and Two are moving to intercept!" Lara grunts, still under the effect of the G-forces. "We'll be in range in fifteen seconds!"At this point, you get a clearer idea of what you're facing. Up ahead, you see a plane composition similar to your own. There was a flight of four Su-25 Frogfoots, covered by a quartet of of Su-27 Flankers. Okay, now THIS was a more modern threat. Up ahead, you see Lilian's Typhoon moving to intercept the Flankers. while Amy appeared to be going after the Frogfoots.""Nugget, perhaps you should help Magnet wit the Frogfoots." Lilian says. No doubt she believed your older Phantom stood a better chance against the ground attack craft than against the Flankers.>Go for the Frogfoots.>Go for the Flankers.>Other

>>35744195The only way I see us rolling in a Biafra Baby is a mission arc where we get shot down in the middle of bumfuck nowhere and have to choose between a bunch of rinky dinky light COIN planes to defeat the local warlord and contact our base. The choice would mainly fall between a Super Tucano and a Biafra Baby, but people would choose the Biafra Baby simply because it's a Biafra Baby, even though it flies slower and is drastically underpowered when compared with the Super Tucano.
>>35744248"Walkyrie... er, Valkyrie."
>>35744236>AnubisKnowing it isn't going to win still throwing it out there.
>>35744236Boo, to go in line with what was tossed around in this thread.
>>35744255I'm cool with that actually. It'll be a handicap worth taking.
>>35744236ValkyrieI can't wait for the paintscheme!
>>35744278Roy Focker colors please!
>>35744289nah. something like this.
>>35744278I'm going for white with fancy gold decorationsChoosing the slain in style
>>35744316Aw, boo. And it was in Belkan black over yellow too.
>>35744289>Roy Focker colorsWeekly reminder Pineapple cake is fine though
I like Spook or Spooky.
>>35744331That looks more like a god-tier Valkyria from the Darcsen wars...>>35744334First dibs on pineapple salad back at base
>>35744331Yeah, like that
>>35744343Less shiny?>>35744345It does have some style.
>>35744345Seems rather....pretentious, don't you think?
>>35744354BANG! Imagine Alicia gunther sporting that armor plate.
>>35744364I still have purple and blue to post if you so wish.
>>35744357What's the point of a custom paintjob that doesn't make you stand out?
>>35744334>>35744354So where's the corrupted version?
>>35744377Aha! Imperial and Militia colors!
>>35744393I've seen that before.Proof that the JASDF has one-upped us... again.
>>35744354We have to consider what's going to fit on the tail of whatever plane we get. Full-body portraits might not leave much room for any detail.
Less Valkyries. More ghosts!
>>35744393Still can't believe Skuld seems... "mature" in this picture.
>>35744410How about just a Lance or something that's placed in front of a wing?
>>35744386Blonde hair or gray?
>>35744417We could have a Valkyrie head on the tail, with wings along the body of the plane.
>>35744412Either this or >>35744354 this will work well
>>35744236"It's been decided!" Lara's voice buzzes back on the radio. "Your new callsign is..."You brace for it to be something stupid or embarrassing."...Valkyrie!" That... actually wasn't so bad."Valkyrie..." You say, trying to get used to the sound."Figured it would fit best. Seeing how aggressive you were today, sending other pilots off to the afterlife." Lilian chimes in. "It seemed fitting.""Lara and Lilian liked it, so I went along with it." Amy grumbles."Don't be silly, you supported it, too!" Lilian chuckles."S-shut up!" Amy squeaks.All the while, you were happy our mask was on, so the others couldn't see how much you were smiling. Your very own callsign..."Valkyrie." It sounded really nice when you said it out loud.<<MISSION SUMMARY>>Mig-17: 100 x 5 = 500Su-25: 300 x 2 = 600$1100 gained!>And that's it for tonight! As I've said before, Cyberpunk Idols may or may not run tomorrow due to a party I'm going to. If I don't run it tomorrow, it will run on Tuesday instead as a make up. PJ Witches should still be on Sunday as normal.
>>35744412>>35744398Thanks man.Effin saved.
>>35744434Excellent as alwaysAlso, when are we gonna meet the not!Ridgeback Squadron
>>35744434Appreciate the thread boss. Cheers.
>>35744434Thanks for running Merc.Oh wow that is a tiny amount of cash for the birds we knocked out. I hope bullets are cheep in this setting.
So guys.New airframe or licenses?
>>35744434Thanks for running, Merc!
>>35744434Thanks Merc.>>35744428Fuck it I'll post both since thread is done.
>>35744451Licenses.Would be a shame to go buy a new bird that can't damage for shit.
>>35744451I'd like to get a new plane. The F-4 is great, but something that can bank and evade like a leaf in the wind would be nice.
>>35744434>$1100 gained!That doesn't seem like much.How much is a plane?
>>35744451New license. Get an F-16 if nothing better is available.>>35744469Knight path usually doesn't get much cash compared to Soldier and Mercenary paths.
>>35744473Here have a spooky one too.
>>35744465Every time I see this, I cringe. Why did they not put the guns in the nose so they don't have to fire through the propellers? Further you don't have to mess with convergence.
>>35744448Those planes would have considered outdated by the turn of the century, so it's not that surprising>>35744451Definetely a new plane, something agile like the Tigershark, since I doubt we can get the Falcon yet
>>35744460>>35744473This looks like what would happen if the Imperials stepped up their Valkyria research.>>35744469Tezuka Rin? Is that you?
>>35744469They better be either dirt cheap compared to what they are IRC or paid for by the company itself. Otherwise we'd need to score more kills than Razgriz to buy a decent plane.
>>357444904spooky2me>>35744495Tigershark a shit. Not enough improvement to warrant bu
>>35744491Interruptor Gears, son
>>35744497Unfortunately, we need bigger fish if we want to buy a better plane. That's why I prefer to develop weapons for now.
>>35744506Yeah, but you fuck with your rate of fire.
>>35744522I dunno. I can deal just fine with burst shooting over wasting ammo anyway.
>>35744505U wot m8?
>>35744541When you are shooting at someone, you want max rounds downrange in the shortest amount of time to increase the probability of hitting, hopefully repeatedly. And then, like I said, if you put them all in the nose you don't have to fuck with convergence and you get all the damage concentrated in one spot.
>>35744554Is that a Nameless' weapon?!
>>35744417>>35744430Wait! Does Karla's family have a Coat of Arms? Maybe we can incorporate it into the Emblem.
>>35744566Eh, to each his own, I guess.The Vic Viper does have other guns mounted on the sides of the fuselage though.
>>35744585>coat of ArmsTHIS
>>35744585Oh, good thinking. We'll have to think of a way to ask mom about that without letting on Karla's new line of work.
>>35744604Just tell her we want something nice to put on our standard pilot-issued leather jacket
>>35744604Are we really not telling Karla's mom about this? I don't know...
>>35744585>>35744602>>35744604I mean, the Razgriz emblem is on a shield shape. If the coat of arms is too complicated, we can use the main colours of it instead with a bit of heraldry as well.If we don't, we'll have to use a single color for the shield and start a new coat of arms. (Perhaps add more colours like how knight houses used to do when marrying other nobles).
>>35744620We will have to sooner or later. The possible ramifications of that conversation both horrify and amuse me.
>>35744645Oh, probably something like this but more dramatic.
>>35744664It scares me more!>DISOWNMENT!! I HAVE NO DAUGHTER!!! YOUR ANCESTORS SPIT ON YOU!!!
>>35744673I think she would only get that pissed if Karla signed up with some kind of militant Belkan revivalist movement. I can't see her kicking her only daughter out of the family over this.But yeah, she's gonna blow a gasket. Be glad she's a continent away when she finds out.
>>35744739Now imagining a conversation between mother and daughter.>Mom, I-I gotta tell ya something.>Wait, don't tell me, you're pregnant and the father ran away!>Mom I... wait, what?>I knew it! I knew i shouldn't have let you get that airline job... you could've been a great writer, or a teacher, or a...>calm down ma, i just signed up for a PMC.>... Oh.>yeah.>... OHHHH!!>Oh boy, here we go again.
>>35744645Maybe our plane's paint job can use our colors...
>>35744766Be hilarious if she decides to drop by and force to have a take your mother to work day. Can you imagine introducing her to Wolf?
>>35744833>Uh, yeah, mom, this is a co-worker of mine, Woolf eunocle. Wolf, my mom.>Pleased to meet you maam. I was always wondering where Karla inherited her... umm, eyes.Karla's mom whispers in her ear>Young lady, if this is your attempt at a bribe, YOU'RE WINNING.>EHHH??!!!!
>>35744833>"Mama, this is-">"Your HUSBAND!?">"...No, Mama, he is-">"Hello ma'am." Wolf grins. "I'm her... superior.">"...Wooooooooolllllf.">"YOUR SUPERIOR?!">"MAAAAAAAAAAA"
Drawfag again. I must ask, even if it's Idols related. What are you guy's thoughts on an Alien: Isolation ripoff with a cowering P-san clutching a 'borrowed' Motion Detector from Falynn trying to escape the Idols in Maid outfits lest he becomes maid-dified himself? Course he could just use Harbinger but that's lame. Also Himawari Five Nights at Freddie's spinoff ongoing at the same time.
>>35744876>>35744866Ahh, the awkward conversations people have when their parents visit them at work.
>>35744887Five nights at Freddie's.>Idols as dressed as maids attempting to find P-san and force him into maid/butler costume.>Has to use Harbinger to figure out where they are and how close they are to finding him.>Spends all night trying to keep them at bay or flee.Draw that shit, yo.
>>35744876Talk about dead either way.
