Stage 10 Ace (Faye)

He is in the NE section of stage 10.

Broken Arrows:see Northern Lights

Look up in the night sky and you can see the northern lights.

Rip Through The Ageir Fleet

In mission six "invincible fleet" you only have a short time to score a large amount of points. Completing the mission is rather easy, but you want the S rank, don't you? In order to do that, you'll need just under 6000 points on ace difficulty. This is a much more difficult task. You'll need to scour all the combat zones to do it, and you may not even do it then. However, there is a way to crack open those juicy ships without expending all your ammunition. Take an aircraft that can be equipped with a long range air to surface missile, The best being the sukhoi 37 due to its superior performance and ammo as compared to the other lasm carrying aircraft. It allows you to pick off even the toughest of ships and their AAA weaponry without using more than one shot and not being shredded by the ships' AAA. However, this still won't keep fighters from mauling you.

Yellow Withdrawl

In mission 8, if you score a hit on a yellow their squadron withdraws. Don't waste your time trying to destroy the yellow's for they're made invincible in mission 8.

All Aircraft

Use the following steps to unlock all aircraft, including special colors. First, acquire an aircraft by destroying it in battle. You can acquire three different paint schemes for each aircraft. Two of the paint schemes can be acquired by destroying that color aircraft in battle. To acquire the special brightly colored third aircraft, you must find and kill the pilot flying it. On each level of the game there is a single hidden aircraft (eighteen total hidden aircraft). Each one of these aircraft has a specific pilot. When you see the aircraft in front of you and lock on, it will display the pilot's name next to the aircraft name and lock on square. For example, "S-37A SMIRNOVA". The hidden aircraft will not show up on radar until you get nearby. On radar, the aircraft will be marked with a red triangle instead of yellow. Each hidden aircraft is always in the same place on their specific level. This is always in an empty spot on the map away from the main combat zone! . The aircraft can usually be found directly behind the main combat zone. Last but not least are the three remaining aircraft. To acquire the Yellow Squadron fighter (SU-37) of your nemesis Yellow-13, you must kill all of the pilots with names flying the special colored aircraft (eighteen total). The method used to unlock the F-4E with tiger stripes is unknown at this time. To unlock the X-02 Stealth, get an "S" rank on all 18 missions on normal mode

Eject From Jet

When you are playing a mission hold R2+R1+L1+L2 all at the same time. This will allow you to eject from your plane before you are shot down. Note (this only works right before you are going to get shot down/not whenever you want to). Good luck sometimes this cheat is hard to do. Have fun!

F-4 Alternate Colors

I don't know how other people have gotten the alternate F-4 colors, but I have found that if you make A rank on all missions on Normal you will get the jungle Camo and Tiger Stripe paint schemes.

Mission 10 Ace Location

This Ace is located west of the Submarine Base. Fly to the other moutain location where there are no enemies.

How To Get The Other X/02s

In order to get these cool jets, just get S rank on ALL 18 missions in Ace rank. One is black and gray camo, the other is a off wite color. This is VERY hard and will take some time to do. Good luck and good hunting.

Watch Missile Or Bomb When Fired

While flying any jet, lock on to a target (ground or air) and hold Circle. This will allow you to watch your missile or bomb from the time it leaves the jet until it hits the target. Note: You have to be careful or your jet may crash.

Finding The Level 10 Ace Pilot

To help migflyer, the R-M01 on level 10 is located directly west of the naval base in a mountainous area. This took me a little while to find, good luck.

200 Points On Level 14

Start the mission, Push square so the Map pops up. Now on the top left hand corner there should be a red dot go to it and you will find a strange aircraft named ``XB-70 shoot it down and you will get 200 points.( Tip: use the XMAA missiles to destroy the targets more easily; arcraft best for the mission are the SU-35, F- 22, and F-15 ACTIVE)

Easy Points At Mission 8

Goto the rocketbase of yours and search for a airplane called KC-10. It's a tanker of the enemies. Shoot it down and you get 100 points.

Get The X-02 Aircraft

To get the best aircraft in the game, the X-02, get an "S" Ranking on all 18 missions on "normal" mode or above.

F-4E W/Tiger Stripes Or Jungle Camo

In order to unlock the Tiger Stripes and Jungle Camo for the F-4E Phantom, get an S-Rating on all 18 mission on the Hard difficulty. Good luck and Good Hunting!

Another Hidden Airplane!

On the "Whiskey Corridor" stage, play through about half way through the time limit and head towards the bottom left-hand corner of the radar. There should be an SR-71 flying from left to right. Shoot it down and you will be rewarded with 200 points! Good luck and good hunting!

More Hidden Airplanes

On the "Broken Arrows" stage, start the level and pay attention to the radar. At the very back of the level, behind the crusie missles, there should be an orange dot moving from right to left across the radar. Follow this dot and you will discover that it is some kind of wierd bomber called an XA. Shoot it down, it is worth 200 points! Good luck, this thing is FAST.

Hidden Airplane.

On the "Shattered Skies" level, there is a SR-71 Blackbird! To find it, start the level with the fastest jet you have. Right as the mission begins, look on your heads up display, and there should be an arrow pointing up and to your right a little, to your nearest target, which happens to be the SR-71, and on your radar, it is an orange triangle. Pull up to 20,000 feet and lay on the throttle. The SR-71 flies ALOT faster than ANY other enemy on your radar, so it should be pretty easy to follow. It is worth 200 points if you kill it. Good luck!

Tango Line Crater Bombing

In the level Tango Line there are the VTOL bases sunken in he mountain craters. An easy way to take out everthing with one shot is to pick an aircraft with large unguided bombs and fly right over the top of the crater. When you're in the center of it climb staight up and get some altitude. Reverse and nose down and you should be diving straight down to the center of the crater. Pickle your bomb in the center of the crater,release,and pull out. Make sure you're high enough before you nose over and dive or you won't make the pull out and you'll end up in the mountain. The blast will take out everything inside.

More Ground Damage

A good way to take out out several ground targets at once is to use a precision guided bomb on a single target that's clumped together with other targets. The bast will take out anything close by and saves you some ammo. You can also use a single PGB on a ship and it will take it out with one shot.

Earn Extra Money

To earn extra Money: destroy as many other air/land targets within the time limit, before eliminating the mission objective target(s). The Mission ends, or updates only when the primary target(s) have been destroyed, even if there is time to spare. Know your objective and time left, and take out as many others as you can beforehand. Resupply if needed.
