Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included the first look at the second story DLC (fifth overall) for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, titled “Anchorhead Raid.”
While the previousm DLC featured a large-scale air battle this time around it’s an assault mission.
In anticipation of the decisive battle of Farbanti, the Erusean Navy has gathered its naval forces at Anchorhead Port to bolster its seaborne power.
The Osean army has caught wind of this and is planning to use its long-range units to attack the port and estroy the enemy fleet.
Considering that the text below basically provides hints on how to perform well during the mission, it could be considered a spoiler if you want to fight your way through it without knowing what’s going to happen. If that’s the case, don’t read anythig under the gallery.
The key elements of this mission are surprise and resupply. By avoiding detection its possible to attack without reprisale for a certain period of time at the beginning of the mission, so it’s relevant to select the proper target.
There are multiple borders through which you can return to resupply and change weapons during the mission.
You can change between air-to-air, air-to-ground, and anti-ship loadout tailoring your weapons to the situation, which will result in a bigger battle than ever.
Incidentally, a helicopter with an Erusean officer will appear at a specific moment of the mission and try to escape the battlefield. Yet, it yields a lot of points if shot down, so you shouldn’t miss it.
Since the environment is packed with ground targets, selecting a the UGB (unguided bombs) at the right time can be very beneficial.
