"Arrest them on sight. They're spies! Shoot 'em if you have to!"
Orson Perrault

Final Option is the 19th mission of Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War. Framed as spies, Wardog Squadron escape Sand Island in training jets, led by Pops.


The mission's objective is to shake off the 8492nd Squadron and reach safety. The player must closely follow Pops as he leads them through the Solo Islands, particularly through two tunnel flights. If the player strays too far from Pops, they will fail the mission. Reaching the other side of the island completes the mission.
