Well, all AI controlled planes can hax through the terrain in AC5, you know. So it's not that surprising.

It's only in certain missions that they can fly through the terrain. Mainly Fortress, Desert Arrow, and Final option does this occur.

I remember almost crashing in the ocean in mission 27+ following a Grabacr/Ofnir under the water
And I think the UAVs on White Bird part II mission can also fly underwater

You are correct about Mission 27+. but i never got close enough to the water to go chasing after the UAV's

Don't forget Mission 12-Powder Keg. I saw Chopper with his TND-F.3 hax through the terrain as well. Or practically, I can conclude there's no specific instances when AI planes hax through ground. I recall seeing one of my Wingmen hax'd through it in one of the missions outside it.

Back in topic: I almost crashed to a super C-5B in Arcade Mode when I went out of my SPWs and nearly hit its burning wreckage after starfing it with guns.

And I suffered from it in Final Option when I nearly smacked into Pops' tail FOR THE SECOND TIME (After I completely smacked into his arse just a few minutes earlier and have to retry)

I was playing last mission "The Unsung War", right when the Ofnir & Grabacr ambush something went wrong wih tv, the screen went black with no picture but you could hear sounds of missile warning and all. Another problem was the Start button on my joystick which wasn't working properly. After few futile attempts to pause, I decided that I was better of on dodging the incoming missiles. This "Screen-Blackout" lasted for about 5 seconds which seemed more like an eternity!!!

LOL. That's such a bad combination of things, right?

And also, another close call was from "Ancient Walls", when right after the "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" sign appears, I suddenly got a "WARNING" on my screen. Since I can't figure out where is the bogey that locked on me, I just level out my jet when a missile appears from a Belkan YF-23, and I nearly got hit by it. Furthermore, the YF-23 that attacked me managed to land a cannon hit right after I managed to evade that missile...

True. Esp. Since there's no friggen' checkpoint like in HAWX/Heatseeker/AC6. Playing older ACs actually needs more caution than playing AC6, esp. AC04 in ACE, due to the very hard to see missile trail, and a single hit by a missile and it's a retry.

No, because this is about the close calls you had in AC5, if you look up a few posts, they're all about AC5.

Then again, his topic, his call.

I had some similar problems with ships. Everyone remembers the epic mission where the Yuktobanians ditch their fleet to come to the Kestrel right? I cant remember the number now. But after I pwned most everything on the field, a destroyer got a SAM up right after the screen displayed 'Mission Accomplished'. It hit me, and guess who had to start over -_-

This topic is open for close calls from all AC games. I just put it here because instance that gave me the idea for the topic was from AC5 and I wasn't thinking about the future of the topic at the time.

A few days ago I was flying and Su-27 on mission 27+, I had just gotten to the SOLG. I was kicking butt, but all of a sudden I saw a huge piece of shrapnel (at least 4x as me!) hurtling towards me. I quickly rolled to the right and I swore if I were any closer my air intakes would've scraped the piece of SOLG!
