(though I thought I heard something form AC3 in there)

The briefing music is Linkage, aka menu music for AC3.
It also comes with two great remixes

This has been talked about before; I think the general consensus was that JA has good music, but most of it is really unfitting for the mission's context.

As for the 747 mission itself, I had expectable trouble with it at first, but after a couple attempts, it's OK. Getting used to taking 50%+ damage, but its OK. :angry:

Being an escort in co-op is fun...until the host is stupid enough to take the left path. Or climb ridiculously high in the latter part. >_>

I found one more I like. I don't know the name of this one, but it's well paced and feels like....well, if it was on TV, I'd say it's a perfect opening credits theme for a military combat miniseries.....you know, where the stars are introduced, with cutscenes from the series.

The first 40 seconds are pretty dark and foreboding, then you get this great heroic stuff.....

Moderately epic, I'd say.

Spoiler


seriously why slowing down since this mission needs to outrun enemies and enemies fire.

also who choose left route than the right route??

anyway's when i choose left route i only sustain 15% or less damge on my red 747

while on the right route, oh gawd. the maintenance crew will kill me..

- Slam the afterburners (XD) at the beginning until the end
- Fly almost at the altitude limit all the way
- Inside the ravine you can evade missiles by banking left or right just a bit, exiting missile's path (missiles on this mssion have less homing capabilities)
- If your problem is that you get shot down when getting out of the ravine (it's f*cking hard, I know), get a very high altitude and start doing barrel rolls and loopings (I'm not kidding, do whatever to evade the missiles)
- If you still get shot down when you exit the ravine you can try ENTERING AGAIN in the ravine once the cloud of enemies spawns, you'll fool them, when you have lost them exit the ravine ascending (you don't have altitude limit, remember?) and fly to the destination
Hope I helped you a bit

If you do, the gunboats swiss-cheese you. If you fly high though, neither guns nor missiles reach you, so you don't have to stay banking all the way through the ravine. Plus, at high altitude (almost at the altitude limit), the ravine is wider so you can turn harder if you needed

Of course dude, you must not crash

Ah OK I misunderstood you
You're right, out of the ravine, missiles launched at you crash in the ground if you're flying low

Could it be that this mission was a test run to the future involvement of Bombers like the B 52 like in Assault Horizon?

Probably not, the 747 was just an enlarged plane that maneuvers and moves extremely slowly, the bombers are probably using another mechanic.

Also, B-2, not B-52.

There's a part in Ace Combat X where you go up against B-2/52 bombers that maneuver on par with the player. Hopefully *that's* the kind of B-2 we'll be playing as.

No there isn't. The only times you encounter bombers in the air is Skies of Deception and Ice Bound, and those bombers only lock on to you if you're directly in front of them.

No, I got behind one in Ace mode in Ice Bound and it started pulling crazy high speed maneuvers to dodge my missiles.

Armada, pretty sure that there was an starred B-2 in Armada.

@Sour: I know that it's possible in AC5 and Zero, but not in X, then again, it has been a while since I've played X.

Huh, I've never had that happen before.

True, but that was only one, and it doesn't put up a fight.

IIRC, there aren't any B-2 bombers in the 2nd phase of Ice Bound, there are F-117s flying towards the submarine from the north. So, the F-117s can dodge
I haven't seen any B-2s breaking in maneuvres when you shoot at them
