Yellow Squadron hands down. Strigon my have the teamwork aspect, but Yellow was more of a concern than Strigon. I do wish you could shoot them down in Missions 4 and 8, but where would the Awe inspiring theme to them be, then? Yellow is the most respactable of any Ace squadron out there that I have seen. As mentioned in this thread before: Most ace squadrons are plain out bad. There are a few, such as the Knight and Soldier ace squadrons from Zero and even Strigon themselves, had a measure of the respect aspect. However, none so much as came close to 13s people. I just see the plane and have to tip my hat to it. I don't get that with the others. Strigon was the start of that coming back, and I hope, if/when the numbered games (main series as I call them) start coming out again, that they can create another squadron like the Yellows. Would love to combat another squadron of their caliber sometime.

I would go Strigon. Although they can be a real pain, they have the agility and they are really good with teamwork. They make it so difficult to pick one off and shoot it down in the first mission. However, when they have a 'TGT' on them in mission 9, I find that they play easy and let you destroy them.

Yellow, they are more, noble.

Sure, Strigons leader sacrificed himself for his squadron, but only because he was in a super fighter.

Where was Yellows super fighters?

And Pasternak cheated with UAV's.

Well, to be fair, the Yellows cheated using plot armor. However, I will say that I found Strigon the more difficult opponent in the sky, but again, that was tweaking the AI and physics (it should take SOME time for them to turn around). Kinda balances out, actually.

Really? Only because he had a superplane? So the safety of his team had nothing to do with the decision? Or the attempt to keep his country a fighting chance? Or to allow that one dude (whose name escapes me) to see his girlfriend (or was she a Fiancé by that point)

Hey, I didn't say he did it for the wrong reasons, but, he still cheated, and I think his name is Ilya.

But you said he only did it because of the CFA. I'd like to think that there was more reasoning then just that.

And if you call that chea....... Hmmm I was gonna ask of you thought Pixy was cheating but he went in solo and Pasternak has UAVs

Also llya is the first name of Strigons lead

Also, to many variables to decide.


Then how about we say it's a bit of everything. Especially the help his country win part

Yellow all the way! I don't think there is any character in the entire Ace Combat series that compares to Yellow 13. He was a badass. He actually seemed like a real person, not a killing machine for some military. His character was engaging. The entire squadron (with exception to Megalith) is hard to shoot down. They don't have the world handed to them, and for the fact they survive some austere conditions, like poor maitenence, poor fuel quality, and not even having their own base, having to use a highway as a base, I'd say they are better. Strigon just seemed like a bunch off assholes and for some reason always ganged up on me all at once, whereas the Yellows would always have one person in the distance, two flying arounding ready to catch me if I escaped the two engaging me.

Strigon is just better in my opinion, I've only seen my friends play AC4 so I dont really know what Yellow is like, and Strigon is just cooler looking.

As much as I hate to jump on the wankwagon, I'm gonna have to go with the Yellow Squadron. While Strigon had far more planes coming at you, Yellow was able to keep you on your toes with just five. Yellow also had the advantage of catering to the narrator's presence which allowed for us to learn more about the fabled squadron than we ever did of the Strigons in their individual Assault Records. The focus of the story was where AC6 really fell flat. It gave us a portrayal of those affected and displaced by the war and how they dealt with it. As such, we couldn't get the chance to know the characters we flew against, especially Ilya, who regarded Garuda 1 as his rival, even though they'd never even met before the Liberation of Gracemeria. Sad too, I would have liked to have flown against him more than once; handsome guy. And his name was pretty cool, too. Probably would have made for a memorable rival had he not come so late into the war.

Not to mention that the Allied Assault mechanic more or less completely counter-acted whatever threat the Strigon team would have presented to you. Then again, part of the theme of AC6 was the whole "cog in the war machine" thing. This applies for both the Garuda and Strigon teams.

Can't be argued that Strigon has the better paintjob, though.

Strigon had the ability to dodge QAAMs with impunity.
