How to unlock unique skins in Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown? Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown Guide and Tips

Unique skins are one of the secrets in Ace Combat 7. To unlock them, you have to shoot down special aircraft found in the campaign missions. You can recognize these planes by a pilot's nickname displayed right under a plane's model (you can see this information after you lock on that aircraft).

However, this aircraft can only appear after you complete a specific challenge for a given mission - How to unlock unique skins in Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown? - For beginners - Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown Guide

However, this aircraft can only appear after you complete a specific challenge for a given mission. You can check these challenges in Data Viewer -> Campaign Assault Records. However, the majority of the descriptions doesn't give you any specific details on how to complete a given challenge.

Challenges aren't available on easy.

The list of the challenges:

Mission no 1

  1. Operation Deer Horn
  2. Target aircraft - Mig-21
  3. Pilot's codename - Pyro

Quickly destroy the last group of enemies - two Mig-21 and two TU-95. The best way to do that is to use a special air-to-air weapon that targets a few enemies at the same time e.g. 4AAM. Once you complete this challenge, keep switching targets until you lock on a Mig-21 piloted by Pyro.

Mission no 2

  1. Operation Eastern Wind
  2. Target aircraft - Mig-29
  3. Pilot's codename - Jester

Destroy the control tower on the airport as soon as it becomes available as a target. Do that before the drones appear (the game will show you a cut-scene). Once you do that, keep switching targets until you lock on a Mig-21 piloted by Pyro.

Note - the enemy pilot starts at the airport which means that you can destroy it before the enemy takes-off.

Mission no 3

  1. Operation Dual Wielder
  2. Target aircraft - F-16C
  3. Pilot's codename - Bayonet

Shoot down all hostile aircraft in the initial phase of the mission in less than 90 seconds. Pay attention to the clock in the corner of the screen - it can't go over 18 minutes and 30 seconds. Use special long-range weapons and aircraft parts that increase targeting speed and speed of your missiles - the planes won't appear next to each other. The enemy appears along with Arsenal Bird. You won't be able to complete this challenge during your first playthrough. Go back here once you get better aircraft and parts.

Mission no 4

  1. Operation Lighthouse Keeper
  2. Target aircraft - F-15J
  3. Pilot's codename - Ronin

Stay below 650 feet when you are flying between enemy radars. The enemy ace pilot will appear after you destroy terrestrial targets. Watch out, the pilot will try to escape.

Mission no 5

  1. Operation High Card
  2. Target aircraft - F-15C
  3. Pilot's codename - Fang

Let your damage reach 75% (not 100% because you will get destroyed) while you aren't able to use weapons. Once the bomber aircraft are destroyed, look for F-15C and its pilot, Fang.

Mission no 6

  1. Operation One Pair
  2. Target aircraft - F-14D
  3. Pilot's codename - Kitten

Fly through the narrow tunnel in the rocks in the western part of the map. After that, you will be able to shoot down F-14D piloted by Kitten.

Mission no 7

  1. Operation Two Pair
  2. Target aircraft - Eurofighter Typhoon
  3. Pilot's codename - Faucon

Destroy all targets except those that are part of the mission. Don't shoot at targets marked with a large red circle on the radar. Destroy their barrier and defense mechanisms e.g. AAGUN turrets, SAM anti-aircraft cannons and AH-64 helicopters.

Mission no 8

  1. Operation Three of a Kind
  2. Target aircraft - F-15E
  3. Pilot's codename - Gazelle

Destroy all oil tanks during the first phase. Be prepared to use your Vulcans and special weapons with a large radius (CRUISE missiles or a laser) a lot - you don't have much time to destroy all green markers. If you manage to do that, the ace pilot will accompany the trucks in the second phase of this mission.

Mission no 9

  1. Operation Flush
  2. Target aircraft - F-18F
  3. Pilot's codename - Spider

  2. Target aircraft - Gripen E
  3. Pilot's codename - Louveteau

Destroy SAM anti-aircraft cannons before the third wave of enemies appear.
