Namco Bandai has already shown off screenshots for the F-117A Nighthawk, F-22A, F-35B Lightning II and the PAK-FA, and now four more aircraft get their turn:

MiG-21 bis - Fighter plane
A fighter created by the former Soviet Union in the pursuit of small size, light weight, and low cost. Its outdated electronic equipment and weapons equipping performance are unreliable, but its light weight gives it excellent speed performance. However, stability during high speed rolls is low, so a high level of flight experience is required. Called by the NATO codename "Fishbed", more than 10,000 of this hugely popular fighter were deployed by former Eastern Bloc nations.

MiG-29A Fulcrum - Fighter plane
A medium-sized master fighter developed as the successor to the MiG-21. In a one-on-one dogfight, it has strong maneuvering capabilities due to its refined aerodynamics. Though it is similar in shape to the Su-27, which was developed around the same time, it was built smaller in size since it is used in close proximity to front-line bases. Its NATO codename is "Fulcrum".

Su-34 Fullback - Attacker plane
This parallel two-seater attack aircraft is the successor to the Su-27. Boasting the best maneuvering performance among attackers, its agile performance is easily comparable to fighters of the same class. It has an increased survival rate because of its strong armor. Its NATO codename is "Fullback." Since it is intended for use in extended attack missions, the rear cockpit is equipped with a bathroom and a makeshift kitchen.

Su-47 Berkut - Fighter plane
An ultra-maneuverable fighter that is strong in one-on-one dogfights. The main, canard, and tail wings that make it a three surface aircraft are a prominent feature. If its unique aerodynamics can be mastered, it exhibits outstanding turning performance that provides an edge going into battle. It is nicknamed "Berkut."

Ace Combat Assault Horizon is due to be released on October 11th in North America, October 13th in Australia and Japan, and October 14th in Europe.
