In appearance, the ACES Nosferatu is identical to the basic Emmerian version, save for the added Project Aces emblems placed around the airframe. The ACES emblem replaces the Estovakian Air Force's roundel in the wings, while the tailcode has been changed to "AC 006" (in reference to the game it's in, Ace Combat 6).
The aircraft appears to have been designed for experienced players, as evidenced by its statistics. Air-to-air, air-to-ground and defense have been lowered, the third one to low levels, while speed and stability have been upgraded, the latter solving the aircraft's problematic tendency to stall. As well, weapons capacity was severely reduced to 1/3 of the original (i.e. 100 missiles, 6 ADMM, 8 EML, and 12 ECMP), thus demanding a high level of skill for maximum efficiency.
