Soldier of Fortune is the 19th mission in the original Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere and is the first mission in the General Resource (I) Arc.


Taking advantage of this situation in which things lean in favor of General Resource, we will assault a Neucom air base. This will be an act of war during ceasefire, so after this attack, we will enter war with Neucom, and then with UPEO as well. We want you all to face this mission in mind.


The player has to destroy all R-201s before they take off. If 3 minutes pass, the enemy aircraft will take off; the surviving aircraft and a tower will become targets.
