Credits is the currency in many Ace Combat games and is present since Air Combat in 1995.

Credits can be used to purchase aircraft, special weapons, and other materials in the games' Hangar. In most cases they are earned by completing missions. Games such as Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere, Ace Combat Advance, and Ace Combat: Assault Horizon do not feature a currency system, hence do not require the player to purchase new aircraft upon unlocking them; however, in the case of the third game, a points system similar to credits is featured to purchase skills sets.
