More Ace Combat Assault Horizon Aircraft Screens

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Namco Bandai's latest instalment in the dog-fighting franchise, Ace Combat Assault Horizon, includes a total of 31 aircraft for players to use. Over three previews, we've been able to take a good look at 15 of these. The first preview saw screenshots for the F-117A Nighthawk, F-22A, F-35B Lightning II and the PAK-FA. These were followed by screenshots of the MiG-21 bis, MiG-29A Fulcrum, Su-34 Fullback and Su-47 Berkut. The last preview gave us screenshots for the AC-130U Spooky, AH-64D Apache Longbow, B-1B Lancer, B-2 Spirit, MH-60 Blackhawk and Mi-24 Hind. The F-4E Phantom II got both a trailer and screenshots when it was confirmed as the bonus aircraft in the Limited Edition.

Here are the screenshots for the latest five aircraft:

A-10A Thunderbolt II - Attack plane
An attack aircraft with heavy armor that provides close-range ground support with overwhelming firepower and durability. Well supplied with weaponry such as a 30 mm heavy machine gun and multiple lock-on ground missiles, it possesses outstanding ground attack capabilities. Very stable at slow speeds, its specialty is precision ground strafing for a long period of time during an attack approach. Known as the "Thunderbolt," its notable features include unswept wings that generate plenty of lift at slow speeds, the high placement of its engine which makes it resistant to counterattacks from the ground, and its reinforced armor plating.
