The F-104C Starfighter is an multirole interceptor aircraft. It was introduced in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.[1]


At least one F-104 was present at an Osean scrapyard following a previous war. Avril Mead, her grandfather, and his veteran friends worked together to rebuild the aircraft using spare parts from other scrapped planes. After approximately eight years and the rest of them had passed away, Avril completed the F-104 and took off on a maiden flight. An Osean Air Defense Force F-15C Eagle presumed she was hostile due to a simultaneous Erusean drone attack and shot her down, destroying the F-104.[2]


Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

"A slim supersonic interceptor from the Century series of fighters. Its thrusters and small, thin, trapezoidal wings allow it to fly at great speeds, meaning it even stands up to more modern craft. Its nickname is "Starfighter"."
