Double Miss by Distantstarr Double Miss by Distantstarr
Solo wing Pixy in ADFX-01 Morgan and Galm One are attacking each other head-on and they both miss. This happened to me many times, to most of us I guess. So this is a flashback of dogfight moments that are stuck to my mind and I decided to depict it in this work. Comment and let me know if you like it :)

Took six attempts(Ace Difficulty):
1- Only made it to Phase 2. Got swiped by the laser twice pushing damage to 68%, got shot in the face with a Sidewinder when I tried to shoot Pixy after avoiding a burst missile.
2- Sliced in half by the laser after only landing 3 hits.
3- Sliced in half after 4 hits(seriously?!).
4- Blasted by the first burst missile, feel like a nugget back on AC4 all over again.
5- Actually made it to Phase 3. Pixy lit me up like a Christmas tree with the laser, managed to only take 50% damage. Barely missed him first pass, got shot in the face on the second(DEAR GOD, I HATE FLYING THIS PLANE).
6- Going well so far, Phase 2 completed with no damage. Rolling scissors while dodging burst missiles
(with a MiG-21bis) made things interesting. HOLY CRAP, I actually managed  to shoot him down on the 5th pass of "Aerial Chicken". Normally I don't really flinch at missiles but the pair he shot off at me were VERY F**KING CLOSE. Not sure how, but actually finished this unscathed.

.....and now I am tempted to try the A-10

"Nuggets" are rookie pilots. ACI as far as I know was released on May 28, but I don't have a PS3(WHY DO YOU HATE ME NAMCO/BANDIA?!)

there's one odd ester egg on pixy's squad info. he's in 6th air division and 66th air force unit, bring together the number... 666... oh shit.

Guessing by the plane that Cypher is flying you played as the Mig-29 or the Su-35 as that would be the "player" choice

This is amazing! Side note: I thought Cipher normally used an F-15C, not a MiG-29? Just curious.

Cipher was you (when playing) and you could chose any plane in the game. My choice was random. Thank you for the comment :)

Dear God, this was my favorite part of the whole game.  I fan-raged when Pixy shot down PJ, and I was on Pixy's tail like a cat chasing a laser.

"Hey, buddy, you still alive?"
"I have to fight you now.  That was unexpected."

I honestly never saw it coming.  Best moment besides the Arkbird of AC5, Yellow 13 of AC4, and the Liberation of Gracemeria in AC6.  So many feels.
