That is Stier Castle, the same that XB-0 mission and the Harling's rescue in AC5.

This reeks of the kind of members we don't want here. Please redact this post and never post anything like this ever again.

As this post makes no sense in context, I do hope this is a mispost intended for another communication venue.

I dont know if this was posted or not but in the opening cutscene for Zero, they used some of the second opening cutscene for AC5 when Genette or what ever his name is was flying with Bartlett and was filming the F-5s.

A lot of scenes from AC5 were used in ACZ again:

The F-5s scene.
The 7 nuclear explosions
The ground zero on Waldreich Mountains
The "Looking outta the window to the craters"

And I think there are more.

lol, not exactly an easter egg but nowhere else to post this, I'm assuming anyone in this thread has beaten ACZ so...

In Stage of Apocalypse if you have Pixy set to DSP GRND he won't actually attack you at all

In the cutscene with Anthony Palmer, you can see the text (it is very hard to read and faded) "http://www.acecombat.co.jp" on the billboard behind the office building.


In the closing credits, screenshots of the former Belkan warzone can be seen, c.2005.


The Avalon Dam Facility very vaguely reminds me of Megalith, except with obvious differences... But since Megalith was completed 10 years after the Belkan War, and was designed to serve as a launch platform for similar weapons, could the missile destroyed in the final mission of AC04 actually be a V2 warhead?

If you look closely, a Grunder Industries emblem can be seen on the missile in AC04. Also, in mission 10, you can watch grabacr 1 shoot down both Pops and Heartbreak 1, and he will come after you next. Usually Pixy gets him before he locks on, but he is still easy to shoot down and is not like the Schwarze team.

 

In the Gauntlet, Mobius seems to blackout several times during the mission after high g maneuvers. Oddly enough, if he does not wake up in time, you can kill him with 4 missiles.

Can you provide a confirming screenshot?

I'd say that most of us probably never saw this, as we capped Ashley right off (that was Ashley, wasn't it?).....then again, a few here are really detail-oriented with these games.

Where do you get this from?  I don't even think you can DO high-g maneuvers in Zero.   Your opponents, though......Schwartze does appear to throw their Mig-31s around like they're acrobatic planes....

 

 

Also, you wanna watch posting to long-dead topics.  We tend to discourage that, unless you're really bringing up some new information, which means something you can prove, not just something based on your impressions.  You have people here who have played Zero since it came out, and still do.    Same with the other titles.  So be sure of your info, eh?   ;)

{Spoilers inbound}

 

1. Playing Juggernaut's Operation Costner, the main ship in Osea's 3rd Fleet is none other than the(drumroll……)OFS Kestrel from AC5! Sadly, Captain Andersen and Marcus Snow don't appear.

 

2. Playing Mayhem on Mercenary after Schwarze Squadron's appearance, sees aces Huckebein(Pops AC5), Grabacr(Ashley Bernitz AC5)and Heartbreak One(Jack Bartlett AC5)appear, with Bernitz trying to shoot Huckebein down with Heartbreak One hot on his ass. Playing this mission on Soldier has the appearance of Ofnir(Michael Heimroth AC5), with Ofnir having been trained by Silber Squadron, tying into Knight. Playing as Knight has Hans Grimm(Archer)'s alleged father Heinrad Grimm show up with his squadron behind Silber Squadron.

 

3. I forgot the mission in which this Su-37 ace spawned in, but the ace has Yellow 13's colors and his Assault Record bio unavailable. Another ace in Mayhem Soldier Ace path is flying an F/A-22 with Mobius One's colors. In the bonus mission The Gauntlet, defeating Espada Squadron in under a minute spawns(another drumroll……) Mobius One himself! Now we can see why he was badass. 

 

4. Both Stage of Apocalypse and Hresvelgr see their missions take place over Waldreich Mountains. The Stage of Apocalypse shows Waldreich and Stier Castle before Belka's nuclear detonations. Hresvelgr shows the formerly beautiful Waldreich and Stier Castle as a nuclear winter-affiliated wasteland, where you be back 15 years later, springing the rightful Osean President from the Belkan-occupied Stier Castle.

 

5. Lying in Deceit takes place in Mt. Schirm, a base of operations for Belkan insurgents as well as the home for the XB-0 hangar. You will be back here 15 years later, revealing that the ceasefire saw several Belkan nukes buried inside Mt. Schirm's mine and the Belkans trying to dig them out.

 

6. VS Mode: Maps that i know of take place in AC5 and AC04 locations: Payavlenie Ravine, Bana City, Solo Islands, Vladimir Mountains, and Mt Shezna. There is also a map that has Player One's AI wingman named "Edge", "Chopper", and "Archer", and Player Two's wingmen are named "Omega", "Halo", and "Viper".

 

This is just a simplified guide to almost all of ACZ's important Easter Eggs!
