The ADFX-01 Morgan, along with its more heavily armed and armored version, the ADFX-02, were built by the South-Belka Munitions Corporation. This company was later acquired by Gründer Industries. The Morgan was put into use during the Belkan War, and its battle data led to construction of the ADF-01 Falken.

The ADFX (Advanced Defense Fighter Experimental) series is a family of highly-advanced prototype superfighters capable of carring experimental battle ordnance during the Belkan War. It's weaponry consists of a high powered 25mm cannon, advanced missiles, a prototype TLS weapon pod (predecessor to the Falken's; a large pod mounted on the aircraft's back), and an extremely powerful new weapon known as the Multi-Purpose Ballistc Missile - arguably even more lethal than the laser cannon in terms of its splash radius, but not damage -, which is a scaled-down, airplane-portable version of the burst missiles deployed by the Yuktobanian underwater carrier Scinfaxi during the 2010 Circum-Pacific War. The Morgan can also be equipped with an experimental ECM pod that works as a normal anti-missile system on the 01 while the 02 version has a cutting-edge prototype, continuously activated to shield it from enemy attacks (effectively rendering the Morgan invincible to any type of attack). The ADFX-02 is also known to have an extremely powerful on-board computer system, the likes of which can control the Belkan V2 MIRV System. Only two models of the ADFX "Morgan" project have been produced, these being the ADFX-01 and ADFX-02. Each aircraft was believed to be under the jurisdiction of the Belkan military.
[edit] The ADFX's Use Throughout the War

During the Belkan War, on December 31, 1995, an ADFX-02 unit piloted by the - then rogue - Larry "Solo-Wing Pixy" Foulke flew the Morgan during the Avalon Dam offensive, and (while the local forces were still oblivious of his presence) headed in direction of the 66 AFU Galm, and attempted to assasinate his former flight lead Cipher by employing the Morgan's TLS cannon from BVR, but ended up killing Cipher's number 2 (who sacrificed himself by getting in the laser's way) in the process; the 2 engaged in the war's final battle, and Cipher slowly stripped the Morgan of it's weapons, until the aircraft was critically damaged, and then destroyed. This meant the destruction of the only known ADFX-02 ever produced. An ADFX-01 was reportedly procured from the Belkans by the Ustio Air Force during the Hoffnung offensive, but it is unknown whether the Ustian Morgan still even exists.

However, it is safe to assume that the Morgan became the basis for the ADF-01 FALKEN, due to the obvious similarities. It is also possible that some design elements influenced the X-02 Wyvern developed by the Erusians.

ASF-X Shinden II

The ASF-X Shinden II (震電II, "Magnificent Lightning"), known simply as F-X during development, is an original forward-swept wing fighter aircraft featured in Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. The Shinden was designed by Shōji Kawamori, the co-creator of the famous Macross franchise.

History

In the year 2002, an incident took place in Japan, in which a number of unidentified aircraft penetrated national airspace without authorization. The consequences of the event resulted in the commissioning of the development of a next-generation support fighter, which was codenamed "ASF-X".

The development of the ASF-X aircraft proceeded in the years following the 2002 incident, and the aircraft made its first flight in August 2013. Christened "Shinden II" after the Kyushu J7W Shinden of World War II, it officially entered active service in 2019 with the armies of Japan and the United Kingdom.

Some time during the aircraft's development, the Japan Air Self Defense Force lieutenant Kei Nagase was selected as a test pilot for the aircraft.
DesignEdit
Airframe diagram.
ProtostealthAdded by Protostealth
The ASF-X Shinden II is a next-generation fighter aircraft, combining a striking airframe design with the latest aviation technologies. As a result of Japan's unique geography, it was designed to undertake aircraft interception and air-to-ship attack duties.

The aircraft employs a forward-swept wing (FSW) design, a single intake mounted in the upper central section and a unique, two-tiered thrust vectoring engine. Similar to the older X-02 Wyvern, it makes heavy use of variable geometry technology. When the aircraft flies at high speed, the outer-canted vertical stabilizers fold inward to reduce air drag, and return to netural position once the speed is reduced.

The ASF-X Shinden II is the first downloadable aircraft in Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. It was released on October 25th, 2011, costing 7.99$ in the Playstation Store and 640 MS Points in the Xbox Marketplace.

Classified as a multirole aircraft, the Shinden II is a high-performance fighter aircraft capable of engaging in both DFM and ASM. As a result of its sleek design and forward-swept wings, the aircraft has excellent maneuverability which when, combined with high speed and firepower, makes it a very effective aircraft in the hands of a skilled pilot.

The ASF-X's airframe is capable of changing its shape and the direction the rudders and wingtips face as the flight speed changes. Furthermore, it is outfitted with a unique tandem twin-engine design, with the lower engine (located further inside the aircraft) being capable of pivoting to provide VTOL capabilities. This engine design provides the fighter with unrivaled stability, allowing it to fly at very low speeds without stalling. In the situation of an engine stall, the Shinden II will act like a glider, as opposed to simply dropping out of the air. The thrust vectoring engine allows it to perform unique counter maneuvers, an example of which is using its lower engine to propel itself above and past a chasing enemy.

Due to its ridiculously positive statistics in every area with few drawbacks, as well as it being its first appearance, fans consider it the "Super fighter" of AC:AH.

ASF-X Shinden II Blue Impulse

Blue Impulse (ブルーインパルス Burū Inparusu?), or 11 Squadron, is the aerobatic demonstration team of the Japan Air Self-Defense Force. Originally founded in 1960 as a team of six F-86 Sabres, the team switched to the Mitsubishi T-2 in 1980 and then to the Kawasaki T-4 in 1995. They are based at Matsushima Air Base, which was heavily damaged by a tsunami on March 11, 2011.


History

The first unofficial Japanese aerobatic team was formed in 1958 at Hamamatsu airbase. The team used F-86F Sabre fighters which did not have a special color scheme. After four demonstrations, the team was disbanded. The next year the USAF Thunderbirds visited Japan, and inspired Japan's Air Self Defense Force (JASDF) commanding officers to establish an official aerobatic team. In 1960 the new team was formed at Hamamatsu airbase flying five F-86F fighters, with three of the pilots coming from Japan's 1958 team.

The first demonstration of the new team "Tenryu" (named after a river near the air base), was on March 4, 1960 in Hamamatsu. However this name was hard to pronounce in western languages, so the team was renamed Blue Impulse. The planes were equipped with smoke generators using five different colors for each plane: white, red, blue, green, and yellow. The planes were painted in silver, light blue, blue and pink; on the leader's plane, the blue is replaced by gold. In the next year, all five jets received special demonstration paint schemes of white and blue. In 1964, Blue Impulse performed at the opening of the Olympic Games in Tokyo, drawing the Olympic rings in the air with colored smoke. In 1970, at the opening of Expo '70 in Osaka, the team drew "Expo '70" in the air. In February 1982, after 545 air demonstrations, Blue Impulse stopped using the F-86F Sabre and instead began using Japanese-built Mitsubishi T-2 jets. The first air show with the new planes was on June 25 at the team's new Matsushima airbase.

On November 14, 1982, during a bomb-burst maneuver at a Hamamatsu air display, plane #4 failed to pull up in time and crashed into a building, killing the pilot and injured 11 people on the ground. This accident brought a halt to the team's performances for the year.

At Expo '90 in Osaka, Blue Impulse performed at the opening event and drew the "Expo '90" logo in the air.

Blue Impulse suffered another accident on July 4, 1991 over the Pacific Ocean, as planes #2 and #4 crashed during a training flight. This disaster again stopped the team's performances for a year.

The team's last performance with the Mitsubishi T-2 was in December 1995, after 175 demonstrations with these aircraft. The new Blue Impulse aircraft became the Japanese-built Kawasaki T-4 trainer, and the first show with these planes was on April 5, 1996. In 1997, the team made their first foreign debut at the Nellis AFB air show in Nevada, USA. In 1998 Blue Impulse performed at the Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan.

On July 4, 2000, during a training flight, planes #5 and #6 crashed, claiming the lives of three people. The incident occurred about 25 km east of Matsushima Air Base.

Blue Impulse also performed at the 2002 FIFA World Cup; on June 4, 2002, they performed at the opening of the Japan versus Belgium match.

The coolest Ace Combat's Super Fighter that I never played! Too bad that I don't have an X-Box, yet!

So I decide to make the CFA-44 Nosferatu, in 5 view drawing! Very first time!
Using all available info I had, and this is the result...in Emmerian Air Force or Navy color scheme.

My take on Cipher (Galm 1) vs. Larry "Pixy" Foulke (Galm 2) in their climactic final battle.
This piece is inspired by ~Skunk-Works' artworks.

Cipher uses a black ADFX-01 here since it's very much fitting in so many ways:

- Pixy mentions him and Cipher being the "opposite sides of the same coin"; black & white are two universal opposites
- the music during the battle, "Zero", has samples of Razgriz (black is the trademark color of Razgriz, by the way) in it
- the battle is pretty much a foreshadowing of future events (as seen in Ace Combat 5)

I did the ADFX-01/ADFX-02 lineart first on paper, then scanned it in and traced the lines on Photoshop. The rest of the art (smoke, snow, background, etc.) was drawn on Photoshop.

Colonel Andres "Akula" Markov is a Russian mercenary fighter pilot making an appearance in the August 9, 2010 teaser of Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. In said teaser, he flies an Su-35BM and leads a formation of Su-33 Flanker-Ds on an attack against the American city of Miami. In the latter half of the teaser, he manages to shoot down the player's F-22A Raptor, and in the very end he is shown heading right towards the defensless William Bishop as he (Bishop) covers his face, with Akula apparently trying to suck him into his plane's intakes. However, the Tokyo Game Show 2010 trailer shows that Akula wasn't heading after Bishop, merely passing by him. It was further revealed in the Theartre of War that the ramming was just a dream, meaning that Bishop doesn't die but will fight Markov in the near future.
His nickname is Russian for "Shark", which is fitting given that his Su-35BM has a distinctive sharks mouth vinyl underneath the cockpit.

Altough he's said to be a mercenary pilot, his Sukhoi has the Russian red star roundel on it's tail. His plane number is 36.

Mobius 1 prepares to engage enemy troops at Crowne Beach in a Panavia Tornado. An Anti-Ship Missile was fired at Erusian resistance forces.

The original can be seen on the Colors Live gallery. I have Colors! 3D for my 3DS, and there was a file corruption complication. Thankfully, I was able to download off of the official site no problem. My username for the Colors Live gallery is also Lyf-Cam.
